Former State Dept investigator on leaked Fauci emails: 'I don't trust these scientists' about Wuhan lab

“I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab from the Wuhan Insitute of Virology,” said Ecohealth Alliance President Peter Daszak in April of 2020.

“From my perspective, your comments are brave, and coming from your trusted voice, will help dispel the myths being spun around the virus’s origins…”

NEW INTEL LENDS MORE CREDENCE TO WUHAN LAB THEORY AS WHO PRESSURED

During an “America’s Newsroom” interview with Bill Hemmer, Asher was asked why the Wuhan lab leak theory was dismissed early in the pandemic by scientific experts. 

“We’ve been told in the last three days that lab leaks happen all the time. We’ve had epidemiologists on the air for 15 months—that was not something we heard a lot and suddenly in the last four days everyone’s talking about it,” Hemmer said. 

Speaking specifically about Daszak, who also served as a member of the WHO-led inquiry into the origins of COVID-19, Asher hypothesized that the Ecohealth president may have been “prompted” to dismiss information indicating that the coronavirus escaped from a lab.

“Can you trust these scientists? I don’t trust these scientists right now” said Asher. “I trust our national lab scientists, I trust our Army scientists. I don’t trust these paid, in the pocket by Chinese scientists.”

In May of 2020, Daszak said there was “zero evidence” that the virus came out of a lab in China during an appearance on “60 Minutes.”
