A group of 300 scientists warned that Anthony Fauci would start a global pandemic as far back as 2014, according to independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
“300 scientists sent a letter to president Obama, asking him to shut down Anthony Fauci’s research on gain-of-function, saying that it was highly likely that he would start a global pandemic,” said Kennedy last week.
Kennedy’s comments came as part of programming for Children’s Health Defense, a non-profit he runs.
The group of scientists, known as the Cambridge Working Group, were concerned because Fauci’s gain-of-function research, which seeks to artificially enhance the virulence of viruses, had led to three lab-leaks in 2014 alone.
In response to the scientist’s letter, Obama ordered 18 of Fauci’s most dangerous projects shut down.
Fauci moved his projects overseas instead.
“In the end, he really didn’t shut them. He instead moved the research offshore, where he would be out of the oversight of these troublesome scientists,” said Kennedy.
The most deadly research was moved to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, run by the Chinese military, from which COVID-19 is widely believed to have escaped.
Some of Fauci’s other gain-of-function projects were moved to biolabs in Ukraine and the former Soviet state of Georgia, Kennedy said.
The technique allowed scientists to remove evidence that a virus had been modified by human intervention.
“It’s the inverse of what you would do if you’re actually interested in public health,” said Kennedy. “They used this cutting edge weapons research and they transferred it to China.”
Kennedy, who has authored two books attempting to reveal the truth surrounding COVID, The Wuhan Coverup and The Real Anthony Fauci, believes that Fauci’s gain-of-function research was an attempt to develop bioweapons.
“What is the rationale for them doing that? The only real rationale, if you think about it, is to develop bioweapons,” said Kennedy.
He also cited a 68 percent pay raise that Fauci received from the military during his gain-of-function research as evidence for the military purpose of the research.
Kennedy, who left the Democratic party to run as an independent, may command 22 percent of the 2024 vote, according to Politico.
