In the latest edition of “we were right all along,” National Institutes of Health (NIH) director Lawrence Tabak finally admitted that U.S. taxpayers funded gain-of-function research.

While the likes of Anthony Fauci have been denying this for years, which led to some explosive viral exchanges with Senator Rand Paul, the jig is officially up. 

According to the New York Post

NIH principal deputy director Tabak admitted to Congress Thursday that US taxpayers funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China in the months and years before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Tabak was asked by Rep. Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz.) of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, “did NIH fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology through [Manhattan-based nonprofit] EcoHealth [Alliance]?”

“It depends on your definition of gain-of-function research,” Tabak answered. “If you’re speaking about the generic term, yes, we did.”

Like Fauci, Tabak himself had been among those denying that the U.S. funded gain-of-function research for years.
