Republican Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz has accused the director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases during the COVID pandemic (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci, for lying to Congress regarding the financial assistance for gain-of-function research that he provided to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
Gain-of-function research includes the modification of viruses to make human transmission easier or to examine their effects on individuals.

During the podcast “Verdict with Ted Cruz, the senator revealed that the EcoHealth Alliance was granted funding by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). Later on, EcoHealth Alliance provided funding to WIV for research.
Allegations are coming to surface that this funding was responsible for the origins of COVID-19 virus.
“I have asked Attorney General Merrick Garland whether he intended to prosecute Fauci and he dodges those questions, he refuses to answer those questions. I’ve asked the FBI, they dodge those questions. Look, Fauci flat out told Congress under oath that the federal government was not funding gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute for Virology. … NIH, in writing, confirmed that they were funding gain of function research.”
The GOP Senator also accused Fauci for being dishonest with the Congress during a hearing from July 2021 he claimed that NIH never provided any funding for a gain-of-function research to the WIV.
“If the entire COVID pandemic is the result of manmade changes to a virus to make it more dangerous to people, that is, number one, a powerful warning to stop screwing around and creating the next horrific pandemic that could result in a much, much higher death toll and potentially millions and millions dead, but number two, it goes straight to the culpability of the Chinese Communist government.
“One of the most damning facts is that we know the Chinese lab destroyed their samples immediately after the pandemic happened.”
