Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) revealed new allegations that Dr. Fauci went to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Headquarters to “influence” its COVID-19 origins investigation. This revelation comes on the heels of recently acquired whistleblower testimony alleging that the CIA potentially skewed its COVID-19 origins review by offering six analysts significant financial incentives to conclude that the result of its investigation was inconclusive. Dr. Fauci’s questionable presence at the CIA, coupled with recently uncovered evidence that he, Dr. Fauci, “prompted” the drafting of “Proximal Origin” — the infamous paper that was used to attempt to “disprove” the lab leak theory — lends credence to heightened concerns about the promotion of a false COVID-19 origins narrative by multiple federal government agencies.
Chairman Wenstrup is seeking all documents and communications related to Dr. Fauci’s access to CIA facilities and CIA employees as it relates to these allegations. Also, after becoming aware of additional information, the Select Subcommittee is requesting Special Agent Brett Rowland appear for a transcribed interview regarding Dr. Fauci’s purported movements to and from the CIA. As mounting evidence continues to imply that federal government officials covered-up the origins of COVID-19, investigating any improper influence will ensure future accountability of not only the intelligence community, but also public health officials.
“According to information gathered by the Select Subcommittee, Dr. Anthony Fauci, then-director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, played a role in the Central Intelligence Agency’s review of the origins of COVID-19. The information provided suggests that Dr. Fauci was escorted into Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Headquarters—without a record of entry—and participated in the analysis to “influence” the Agency’s review. Our goal is to ensure the scientific investigative process regarding the origins of COVID-19 was fair, impartial, and free of alternative influence,” wrote Chairman Wenstrup.

Republicans in Congress are now demanding information from the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services about an alleged visit by Dr. Anthony Fauci to the CIA during its investigation into the origins of COVID-19.
Tuesday’s letter follows the subcommittee’s investigation into claims made by a high-ranking CIA whistleblower earlier this month that senior officials offered financial incentives to six of the seven-member CIA COVID Discovery Team tasked with investigating the origins of SARS-CoV-2. In transcribed testimony, the whistleblower said the majority of the team members initially concluded the virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology but were pressured into changing their position in favor of the zoonotic hypothesis.
Wenstrup’s letter to Grimm does not specify where the information about the alleged meeting comes from, nor does it suggest a specific time that it occurred. The letter requests travel records and communications between Fauci and the CIA from January 2020 to December 2022, when Fauci retired from his position at NIAID.
