(PatriotWise.com)- Republican Senator for Wisconsin, Ron Johnson, claimed on August 1 that the Department of Health and Human Services may be working with White House COVID-19 response chief Dr. Anthony Fauci to hide something from Americans. He said that the redaction of key information in Fauci’s emails, which were released as part of a Freedom of Information Act request, reveal that Fauci isn’t levelling with the public and has something to hide.
Taking to Twitter, Senator Johnson said that the emails must be “transparent” and that the American public deserves to know what is really happening.
The redactions in Dr. Fauci's emails are hiding something.
They need to be transparent.

Senator Johnson is one of six Senators calling on Fauci and the HHS after email correspondence between Dr. Fauci and the head of EcoHealth Alliance, Peter Daszak. The redaction is significant as EcoHealth was the recipient of millions of dollars of funding from the National Institutes of Health, with that funding later being used to fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Technology.
Dr. Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, had repeatedly denied that U.S. money was sent to Wuhan to aid with research that involves the genetic manipulation and editing of viruses.
EcoHealth’s funding amounted to $3.7 million from Fauci’s agency, with at least $600,000 of that funding being directed to the Wuhan lab where the COVID-19 virus is believed to have originated.
The information redacted in the hundreds of internal emails was purposely left undisclosed pending “law enforcement proceedings.”
Senator Johnson recently announced on Fox News that he along with five members of his Senate committee have sent a letter requesting the full emails without redactions. They received the full emails without the redactions, except for one – a single paragraph that has not been released to the public. Johnson confirmed that he has seen the paragraph and that it has “nothing to do with the law enforcement investigation,” begging the question…are they trying to hide something?
Ask yourself…why would Dr. Anthony Fauci want to hide information relating to his agency’s indirect funding of gain-of-function research in Wuhan?
