There are valid questions about the lab-leak theory and whether funding the Wuhan lab was a good idea, in light of all we know. And Fauci acknowledges it’s worth figuring out whether the lab and China more broadly played a role. But as always in politics, it’s worth being skeptical of a conveniently erected boogeyman.
There is still no evidence that there was or wasn’t a lab leak. I still think it highly unlikely. This effort to paint Fauci as engineering the pandemic for his own ends is just spectacularly cynical and stupid.
