A leading virologist who emailed Dr Fauci in January 2020 to tell him that the COVID-19 virus looked like it had been engineered in a lab has gone dark on Twitter, after deleting thousands of posts, then terminating his entire account completely.
Dr Kristian Andersen of the Scripps Research Institute recently hit headlines after his comments were highlighted in the FOIA released Fauci emails:
Andersen’s comments prompted Fauci to order his deputy Hugh Auchincloss to expect a call from the former to discuss the matter. Fauci attached a paper to the email concerning previous ‘gain of function’ research and wrote “Read this paper as well as the email that I will forward. You will have tasks today that must be done.”
Just two months after suggesting that the virus was “inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory,” Dr Andersen published a paper throwing his full weight behind the ‘natural origin’ theory.
The scientist then received a CREID grant totalling almost $2 million from Fauci’s NIH, at the same time that Dr. Peter Daszak, President of the EcoHealth Alliance, the organisation that was intimately involved with the gain of function studies in Wuhan, received the same funding.
In the wake of the email reveal, the scientist was under bombardment to explain his initial findings. It appears that he responded by blocking those asking questions:
Andersen then began to delete past tweets in their THOUSANDS:
Andersen then claimed that the tweets were auto-deleting, a suggestion that many found laughable, reasoning that 5000 tweets don’t just suddenly ‘auto-delete’ all at once:
After this was pointed out, Andersen deleted his ENTIRE ACCOUNT:
