Top Fauci Adviser Wanted to Hide Emails From the Public, Documents Show
- June 23, 2023
A top adviser to Dr. Anthony Fauci sought to shield his emails from the public, a newly disclosed document shows. Dr. David Morens, a longtime official at the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH’s) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), told a group of scientists that he used his personal email because he did not want his messages to be released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
“Unless there’s much more to the story than is reflected here, this looks like a pretty brazen effort to avoid public records requirements,” Michael Chamberlain, director of Protect the Public’s Trust, told The Epoch Times via email.
“Transparency is one of the primary expectations that Americans have of their public servants. The American public’s trust in its government is already at dangerously low levels and if officials are deliberately and audaciously attempting to evade their obligations and hide their activities, it’s bound to become even worse,” Chamberlain added.
