Dr. Fauci at Deposition Insists Misinformation and Disinformation Should Not Be Tolerated Unless It Comes from Him

The day before Thanksgiving, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, along with Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, deposed Anthony Fauci (head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases [NIAID]) at the National Institutes for Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported in May that the Missouri and Louisiana Attorneys General filed a lawsuit (Missouri v. Biden) against the Biden Administration, including Joe Biden himself, Anthony Fauci, the Department of Homeland Security and nearly a dozen federal agencies and Secretaries.

Fauci was deposed on Wednesday.  And The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft and attorney John Burns were present at the deposition and witnessed the questioning for seven hours.

Back in November 2021. Dr. Fauci famously said, “I represent science,” and condemned the voices who pointed out his numerous lies, flip-flops, and inconsistencies.

During questioning on Wednesday Dr. Fauci was asked repeatedly on what he thought of criticism of his management of the pandemic and his failed policies.

Dr. Fauci gave this shocking statement considering his own well-documented record on disinformation and outright lies.

Fauci told the panel, “Well, it is very clear that, as I’ve said 10 multiple times before, that misinformation and 11 disinformation, particularly that encourages people to avoid lifesaving interventions can certainly result in the unnecessary death of people whose lives would have been saved. So when misinformation and disinformation leads people to avoid a lifesaving intervention, that is equivalent to contributing to the death of that person.”

Fauci added this, “It is very clear that, as I’ve said multiple times before, that misinformation and disinformation, particularly that encourages people to avoid lifesaving interventions can certainly result in the unnecessary death of people whose lives would have been saved. So when misinformation and disinformation leads people to avoid a lifesaving intervention, that is equivalent to contributing to the death of that person.”

Mr. Sauer asked Dr. Fauci if he thought that allowing both sides to openly debate their positions on hotly contested issues is important, like the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine or the origins of the COVID-19 virus?

Dr. Fauci responded, “You know, when you say allowed to debate, I think honest debate is important.  But then he added that “when it goes beyond debate and leads people who are unwitting about these things to do things that are clearly detrimental to their life and their safety, I find that disturbing.” Fauci then alleged that how this is mitigated “is not in my lane.”

Fauci used this argument to shut down thousands of voices who opposed his unscientific dogma and totalitarian edicts.

The Gateway Pundit will continue to report on the Fauci deposition in the coming days.
