The release of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s emails has proven to be a gold mine for those willing to actually report on them. While the White House press corps asked zero questions today of Jen Psaki on the matter because they are left-wing hacks, right-leaning outlets that have consistently been ahead of the curve are busy mining the documents, and what’s been discovered so far is nothing short of shocking.

No, he was telling his colleagues that masks weren’t necessary and giving scientific reasons for his assertion, which undercuts his present claim that what he was saying publicly was just a lie to influence public behavior.
Fauci defended his initial public statements downplaying the efficacy of masks as something he had to do to keep the PPE supply available to front line medical personnel. This is a private message to a colleague, saying the same thing. He lied to all of us – he has always held… https://t.co/ekvRQwVzQS

No matter how you slice this, Fauci lied multiple times about masks. If what he’s saying privately in this email is true (and it is), masks don’t work anyway, so why would first responders need huge amounts of them? Given that,
