(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Fox News firebrand news anchor and host Tucker Carlson laid into Dr. Anthony Fauci this week during a segment about his email scandal. It follows the release of thousands of emails between Fauci and various government officials that show his changing opinions on the COVID-19 pandemic and how to respond to it.
Out of the thousands of emails revealed by BuzzFeed News and The Washington Post, courtesy of a Freedom of Information Act request, some of the most shocking revelations included an email to an Obama-era Health and Human Services secretary advising against the wearing of masks.
Tucker Carlson slammed Fauci during an episode of his show this week as a “lying bureaucrat.”
“From the beginning, Tony Fauci was worried that the public might conclude COVID had originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Carlson continued.
That’s another serious point of contention. Fauci has repeatedly claimed that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases did not provide hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to fund Gain of Function research in Wuhan – which refers to the study of viruses and the changing of organisms during those studies. However, it was recently revealed that $600,000 given by the institute, which Fauci is in charge of, was given to an organization named EcoHealth…which in turn gave funds to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to conduct research into whether the coronavirus could spread from bats to humans.
“The utter fraudulence of Tony Fauci is obvious now, and it’s widely acknowledged,” Carlson said. “But it was not always obvious…in March of last year, we interviewed Fauci on this show. We treated him with respect, we took his answers seriously.”
Carlson said that they had assumed Fauci was rational and honest, but that Fox was wrong. He then accused Fauci of being a sleazy bureaucrat who was “deeply political” in his response to the virus, and “often dishonest.”
“More shocking than that, we then learned that Fauci himself was implicated in the very pandemic he’d been charged with fighting,” Carlson continued, saying that Fauci supported the “grotesque and dangerous” experiments that made the COVID-19 virus possible.
He then called for a criminal investigation into Fauci’s alleged involvement with the virus studies…which seems totally appropriate at this point.

Carlson can be brutal, and this is a good example of him being totally brutal…and totally fair.
