New COVID-era revelations show attempts to hide information

by sam

Republicans in Congress grilled a health official following the release of emails showing an attempt to seemingly hide certain information.

A select subcommittee within the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability held a hearing Wednesday featuring Dr. David Morens, the senior adviser for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. That subcommittee’s chairman, Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio), laid out some of the evidence held against Dr. Morens.

The emails also appeared to show Morens as a sort of intermediary for Dr. Anthony Fauci on multiple occasions. One of his comments was brought by Chairman Wenstrup, which Morens said was only “a joke.”

Morens was also accused of helping EcoHealth Alliance to reinstate a grant after it was previously suspended. The Alliance was accused of being involved in some capacity with the origins of the virus that causes COVID-19.
