Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Releases Memos Implicating Fauci Advisor, Others

On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic released a document dump on Twitter/X that contained a wealth of troubling information, including secret communications channels, attempts to conceal information from the public, possible destruction of evidence, and even possible financial kickbacks.


It seems bureaucrats just can't resist corruption.

The emails in question were sent throughout 2021 as the pandemic was winding down.

There's a lot to unpack here, so let's look at some of the individual tidbits.

First, it looks like Dr. Fauci himself was using his personal Gmail address in correspondence with members of his team. Note the mention of the "secret back channel." This looks a lot like an attempt to dodge any future Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

This possibility is bolstered by comments on "making emails disappear."


Dr. Morens appears to have forwarded at least one email marked "Government Use Only" to an outside email address:

And finally, there were even apparent discussions of "kickbacks," which are difficult to distinguish from "bribery."


All of these communications, taken together (read the entire thread here), spin a tale of government employees who are out of control; they were: 

  • Communicating through back channels about an issue that wreaked havoc on the American economy, ruined businesses and lives, damaged the education of many of our nation's kids
  • Conspiring to conceal those communications from the American people, whose salaries pay their wages
  • Joking (at least, we can hope it was only joking) about receiving financial kickbacks

These are items that should be sending people off to stand before a grand jury, and hopefully to stand trial. But we all know none of that will happen here.

Fox News' Janice Dean made an interesting suggestion:

That's an idea — but when was the last time we saw any prosecutions arise from such a commission?

The full cost of the COVID-19 mess will likely never be known. Aside from what's mentioned above — the losses to the economy, to small businesses, to education — disclosures like this do inestimable damage to whatever faith and credit any American citizens still have in our federal government — which one would think isn't much. The release of documents paints a vivid portrait of corruption, and the best recourse the American people have the next time the government attempts anything like his is defiance. One of the most powerful statements in the English language is "I will not comply," and that would appear to be the primary recourse left open to us in the face of an overbearing government.
