In a trove of newly leaked emails, one seems to show that Dr. Fauci was in a panic that the NIH, where he was deeply involved, might have ties to the coronavirus leak in China revealed.
Here’s the first email from Fauci to Hugh Auchincloss at NIH on February 1st, 2020:
There’s definitely a sense of urgency and alarm in Fauci’s email.
Below is the reply from Auchincloss:
The response from Auchincloss is key, where he says “The paper you sent me says the experiments were performed before the gain of function pause but have since been reviewed and approved by NIH. Not sure what this means since Emily is sure that no Coronavirus work has gone through the P3 framework. She will try to determine if we have any distant ties to this work abroad.”
Other emails have shown that Fauci was trying to downplay the Wuhan lab leak at the same time.
Phil Kerpen pointed out how the “fact checkers” were quick to cover for the NIH with this article from Nature Medicine:

People apparently discovered that article in March of last year and circulated it as proof that the virus could have originated in a lab. THOSE DAMN CONSPIRACY THEORISTS! “Scientists believe that an animal is the most likely source of the coronavirus”, therefore Nature editors promptly appended an addendum noting there’s no indication it came from a lab.
Of course now we have the article and the emails above, and according to Tom Cotton, Fauci’s got some answering to do:
Fauci has some questions to answer.

The question is will Fauci tell the truth about this? Let’s just say I hope they swear him in the next time he’s before Congress.
