Dr. Anthony Fauci, in April 2020, received an email from Francis Collins, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) director, with the subject line noting, “conspiracy gains momentum,” which includes a link to a report outlining multiple sources believing the Chinese coronavirus started in a lab.
In the newly released email obtained by BuzzFeed News from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Collins and Fauci discussed what appears to be a “conspiracy.” Still, the important parts of the email are redacted.
The original email from Collins, which has almost every part redacted besides name, includes a link to a new report from Mediaite, talking about a Fox News segment with Brett Baier and Sean Hannity speaking about the “alleged” conspiracy theory of the Chinese coronavirus starting in a Wuhan lab having some merit, according to BuzzFeed.
The email response from Fauci was redacted.
