The American health chief is also unable to cite scientific evidence for flipping his position on masks. One remembers Dr Bloomfield of Jacindaland in March 2020: “You can wear a mask if you want to, but it isn’t really any protection.” That was true, but later he flipped — on recommendation from who?

During seven hours of questioning in a landmark lawsuit alleging the federal government colluded with social media companies to censor speech, Dr. Anthony Fauci confirmed the communist Chinese government convinced him to press for the crippling COVID-19 lockdowns, according to attorneys and plaintiffs who were at the deposition Wednesday.

Fauci, who is retiring as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases after 38 years, also was unable to cite any study backing his sudden change of position on the effectiveness of masks in curbing the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The court ordered that the deposition be sealed. However, California physician Aaron Kheriaty, who is one of the plaintiffs, reported via Twitter that Fauci confirmed NIAID deputy Cliff Lane convinced him to press for the lockdowns after returning in February 2020 from a trip to China with a World Health Organization delegation.

“Lane convinced Fauci we should emulate China’s lockdowns,” Kheriaty wrote.

The joint lawsuit was filed in May by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry. In October, a federal court granted the states’ request to depose Fauci and other top Biden administration officials, including former Biden press secretary Jen Psaki and the current White House spokeswoman, Karine Jean-Pierre.

It’s now well established, Kheriaty noted, that the Chinese Communist Party’s claim that it had contained the virus through draconian lockdowns was false.
