‘Most notable crime’: Tucker recaps Fauci’s reign of ‘lies’ and misinformation ahead of timely resignation

Dr. Anthony Fauci announced his forthcoming departure from his government positions Monday and, while zealots praised him as an idol for his nearly four decades of service, Fox News host Tucker Carlson shone a light on what may be “his most notable crime.”

Nearly two and a half years since the COVID pandemic came to the forefront of American lives and after a fortune in taxpayer dollars was pumped into advertisements (read propaganda) to “trust the experts,” it’s no wonder that Fauci’s stepping down from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) would garner a level of pomp from the left.

However, on Monday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host injected a dose of reality to counteract the latest boost in vainglory bestowed upon Fauci with a recap of what the doctor knew, when he knew it, and his apparent culpability.

“Tony Fauci is, in fact, a dangerous fraud, a man who has done things that in most countries, at most times in history, would be understood perfectly clearly to be very serious crimes,” Carlson asserted before suggesting, “So, it’s possible that Tony Fauci might want to resign before he has to explain all of that to a new Congress.”

As previously reported, Fauci’s decision to be “leaving these positions in December of this year to pursue the next chapter or my career,” seemed conveniently timed to occur ahead of the beginning of the 118th Congress where it expected Republicans may be in control and begin an investigation into everything surrounding COVID.

“As your kids were suffocating during gym wearing a mask, Tony Fauci knew they didn’t work, and then there’s this,” Carlson presented after pointing out the flip-flop on mask guidance, “maybe his most notable crime.”

“He didn’t simply downplay and obfuscate the origins of the pandemic, apparently in conjunction with the Chinese government. No. Tony Fauci covered up evidence that he, Tony Fauci, helped create that virus in the first place,” the host contended.

“Here’s Tony Fauci last July, testifying under oath before Congress,” he said as he introduced a clip of Senate testimony where Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) questioned the doctor.

“Dr. Fauci, knowing that it is a crime to lie to Congress, do you wish to retract your statement of May 11, where you claimed that the NIH never funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan?” Paul asked.

“Senator Paul, I have never lied before the Congress and I do not retract that statement,” Fauci insisted as his temper rose. “This paper that you were referring to was judged by qualified staff up and down the chain as not being gain-of-function. So what was…let me finish-”

“You take an animal virus and you increase its transmissibility to humans,” the senator simplified the debate. “You’re saying that’s not gain-of-function?”

“Yeah, that is correct and Senator Paul,” Fauci snapped back, “you do not know what you are talking about, quite frankly.”

“Oh,” Carlson reacted, “Dr. Fauci meets an actual doctor who’s not a BS artist who asks simple questions and demands straightforward answers. Tony Fauci was lying in that clip. He knew he was lying. As the Intercept, of all places, recently reported, ‘Scientists working under a 2014 NIH grant to the EcoHealth Alliance to study bat coronaviruses combined the genetic material from a parent coronavirus known as WIV1 with other viruses.” Oh, they were manufacturing more powerful viruses. Tony Fauci oversaw that.”

The Fox News host didn’t let up there as he presented not only the science of experts who well-documented that COVID likely was created in a lab but also how solutions such as Remdesivir and the “so-called vaccine” did little to help public health but did a great deal to line the pockets of pharmaceutical companies.

“For the low price of $48,000 a dose, Fauci promised that Remdesivir could shorten your hospital stay if you were ever to get COVID,” Carlson stated before pointing out, “Even the WHO is now recommending against it. ‘There is a conditional recommendation against the use of Remdesivir…This means that there is not enough evidence to support its use.'”

“Tony Fauci’s friends at Gilead, which have been a struggling company, according to some, made a ton of money,” the host stated. “They all did, so did Tony Fauci’s friends at Pfizer and Moderna, as Fauci made the rounds talking up the only solution to the crisis that he helped create, which was, of course, the vaccine, which isn’t actually a vaccine.”

“You know,” Carlson continued, “it really is an indictment, not simply of Tony Fauci, who’s obviously dishonest and implicated in what appear to be crimes, we’re not a law enforcement agency, they do appear to be crimes, but it’s an indictment of our system and the rest of us, certainly us in the media, that a guy in charge of America’s COVID response could say so many things serially back to back, one after the other, week after week, month after month, year after year, that turned out to be false, and he still has the job. How does that happen?”

“It’s like the withdrawal from Afghanistan. No one responsible for that was ever punished. They were elevated. That’s a dysfunctional system that needs to be fixed immediately,” the host declared.

“It’s not a partisan point. It’s an obvious point, but on the question of the so-called vaccine, which is not a vaccine, by the way, you got the smallpox vaccine, you got the polio vaccine, you got the mumps vaccine. Did you get those diseases? Do you have mumps today? Did you get smallpox last week? Do you have polio? No, because those are vaccines, but you probably got COVID after you got the shot. Tony Fauci did,” Carlson noted.

Unfortunately, as Carlson concluded, “people like Tony Fauci, who apparently engineered the single most devastating event in modern American history and then lied about it, gets to retire as a hero.”
