How the mighty have fallen. Receipts don’t lie and the batch of FOIA’d emails released this week are the gift that keeps on giving. The latest revelation pulled from the emails prove Dr. Anthony Fauci lied about his knowledge of the lifesaving coronavirus treatment, hydroxychloroquine.
Studies published last year proved the drug was effective at cutting the death rate of those infected with the coronavirus. Former President Trump, having had the virus himself, touted the drug as an effective way to treat the more severe symptoms of the virus many times.
One of these times was in a March press briefing where Fauci became combative responding to a question about whether or not the drug was promising.
“The answer is no. The evidence you’re talking about … is anecdotal evidence. The information that you’re referring to specifically is anecdotal. It was not done in a controlled clinical trial. So you really can’t make any definitive statement about it,” he said at the time.
Recently released emails now show this is patently false. Fauci had been cc’ed on emails from February 29th, 2020 where a pair of Oklahoma doctors discussed their extensive research on the veracity of the drug with Vice President Mike Pence.
Fauci also responded to a February 24th, 2020 inquiry about China’s clinical trials with the drugs and its’ veracity saying, “There are no data in this brief report and so I have no way of evaluating their claim. There are a lot of these types of claims going around. I would love to see their data.”
Fauci preferred to advocate for masks and social distancing. He echoed this sentiment in a statement to the BBC, saying, “We know that every single good study – and by good study I mean randomised control study in which the data are firm and believable – has shown that hydroxychloroquine is not effective in the treatment of Covid-19.”
Fauci appears to have been the arbiter of what studies qualified as “good” versus bad, which is interesting when so many medical professionals were advocating for its use.
Cardiologist and Professor of Medicine Peter McCullough testified earlier this year that 85% of COVID patients given a multi-drug treatment plan recover from coronavirus with complete immunity. McCullough added that thousands could have been saved if the treatment protocol he and other physicians used was not suppressed.
Yale epidemiology professor Dr. Harvey Risch also spoke to the treatment’s efficacy with Fox News.
Prior to the pandemic, hydroxychloroquine had been used safely for 65 years in millions of patients. Thanks to Fauci’s campaign against the treatment, tech giants began censoring those who advocated for it on their platform.
Fauci has yet to answer for his staunch opposition to the treatment. Recent developments show that he was aware of the government cover-up of the origin of the coronavirus.
