Fox News’ Steve Hilton Calls for Fauci’s Prosecution
Fox News host Steve Hilton said during his show on Sunday that Dr. Anthony Fauci lied to Congress and should be prosecuted.
During The Next Revolution, Hilton said, “Frankly, unless Fauci is prosecuted, and unless he and Collins have fully investigated Biden’s sudden conversion to finding out what really happened to cause this pandemic will be completely hollow.”
Hilton showed a video of Fauci at a conference in 20212 describing “gain of function” research and then showed that Fauci used that same, exact description of it in a progress report to describe U.S. funded research at the Wuhan Virology lab. Hilton said this is “irrefutable evidence that Fauci lied about funding gain-of-function experiments. Not his emails, but Fauci on video from nearly 9 years ago.”
Hilton is not the first to call for Fauci’s prosecution. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has also been extremely critical of the coronavirus spokesman for his lies concerning the pandemic.
Paul received death threats in connection with the events. “This week, I’ve had five death threats just for being outspoken on it,” Paul said on Fox News.
“I don’t know what the world’s coming to, you can’t ask honest, difficult questions that in the end have proved out that Dr. Fauci was not being honest with us, but as a repercussion, my family had white powder sent to our house, and five death threats phoned in.”
According to The Hill, “The National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded a $3.4 million grant to the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance from 2014 to 2019.”
The Hill added, “The Wuhan Institute of Virology was awarded a $600,000 subgrant under that contract, for the purpose of researching bat coronaviruses over five years.”
Fauci appears to have a conflict of interest and to have misled congress on certain issues related to the coronavirus. Some have called for his firing or resignation, but Hilton’s blasting suggests a harsher response is warranted.
In contrast, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked by a reporter during a briefing whether there was any situation in which Fauci would be fired. Her quick one-word answer was, “No.”
That sums up the Biden administration’s plans regarding Fauci. No firing is planned, and certainly no plans to prosecuted the coronavirus spokesman. The move would be a self-defeating PR stunt against an administration that has prided itself in “following CDC guidelines” that have continually changed and increasingly have not made sense.
In Biden’s speeches, he says if we all behave well and be good little steward who get the jab we might be able to have a small cookout in the backyard for the Fourth of July. But he fails to realize most Americans have been doing that and much more for months. It was never the coronavirus that shut America down; it was the government.
The strongest evidence that the Biden administration took the wrong approach can be found in looking at conservative-led states that opened earlier than others. Florida, Texas, Idaho and other states continue to thrive while New York, California, Michigan and Illinois have declined.
We’re no longer talking science. This is about manipulation and possibly even a scandal. Hilton is right Fauci should be investigated, but it’s unlikely to happen unless Republicans return to power in the House and take action against Fauci’s continual lies.
