Fauci adviser who allegedly ‘deleted fed records’ subpoenaed in House C-19 origins probe


A longtime top adviser to Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been accused of deleting federal records by Republican lawmakers, has been subpoenaed by the House panel investigating the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. David Morens, the recipient of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic’s Friday subpoena, served as Fauci’s senior adviser at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases from 1998 until former NIAID chief’s retirement at the end of last year.

The GOP-led panel alleges that Morens [Pictured below] “likely used his personal email to delete COVID origins documents and evade [Freedom of Information Act] laws.”

The subpoena against Morens comes after the National Institutes of Health failed to respond to a request for information issued by the panel last month, and then produced a “lackluster” amount of documentation – “only two pages” – responsive to separate October request, according to COVID subcommittee Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio).

“This obstruction will not be tolerated,” Wenstrup warned in a letter informing NIH Acting Director Lawrence Tabak about the subpoena issued to Morens, which called the allegations against the NIAID employee “highly concerning.”

“The documents of Dr. Morens are potentially necessary to inform this investigation, including but not limited to his knowledge of information regarding the origins of COVID-19,” the letter continues.

Wenstrup argues that the documents potentially deleted from on Morens personal email account may point to an effort by government officials to cover up evidence that the virus which led to the coronavirus pandemic came from a Chinese lab.

“Further, these documents may shed light on efforts from within the government to suppress or otherwise disregard the possibility COVID-19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China,” the letter states.

“It is therefore necessary for the Select Subcommittee to obtain the documents that Dr. Morens produced to the NIH as well as to ensure that all of his relevant documents have been secured and retained.”

Wenstrup also demanded that NIH Records Officer Anthony Crawley Gibson appear before his panel for an interview later this month.
