Psaki avoids questions about Fauci’s emails, selected reporters ignore controversy

Chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci continues to face mounting criticism, most recently in response to the release of thousands of emails, including some that seem to contradict his public statements during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Amid widespread speculation on social media and among conservative pundits, however, not a single member of the White House press corps during Wednesday’s briefing asked about the controversy.

Psaki escapes tough questions

According to the Daily Caller, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also declined to provide a voluntary statement or explanation for any of the perceived discrepancies between Fauci’s private emails and his advice to the American people.

After her opening remarks, Psaki fielded a number of questions from select reporters in the room, and Fauci’s name was reportedly not mentioned even once.

Instead, the scope of topics discussed included the latest Russian-linked cyberattack on a U.S. company and governmental changes in Israel.

While these and other current events are important issues worthy of a White House comment, many Americans believe BuzzFeed’s bombshell release of Fauci’s emails, obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request, also deserved some attention.

Amber Athey of The Spectator was in the room during the briefing and later revealed that she would have asked about the emails if given the chance — but Psaki did not call on her.

“Unfortunately I was not called on”

In a tweet on the matter, she declared: “I was going to ask about Fauci’s emails at today’s WH press briefing but unfortunately I was not called on.”

She went on to reveal that her “second question was going to be about Biden shutting down the State Dept investigation into COVID origins.”

Though clearly disappointed with the missed opportunity, Athey signaled that she expects to “be back in the briefing room in a few weeks depending on how the rotation shakes out.”

The origins of the pandemic have also gained attention in recent weeks in response to evidence that the virus might have escaped from a state-run laboratory in Wuhan, China.

Whether Fauci’s contradictions on issues like face masks and COVID-19’s origins were due to shifting opinions or something more sinister, the release of his private emails is a perfect opportunity to ask tough questions. As Athey later revealed, it was a missed opportunity.

  7. The crazy person who is Psaki should be put totally out of our government and we all know that Dr. Fauci needs to be fired and criminally charged with lying to the people of this country about everything with the Covid Virus and Joe Biden needs to be impeached from office of the president for braking the laws of this country.

  8. Just read that Fauci and the Censorship of our MSM, kept the Truth Hidden from us. Doctors who said Hydroxychloroqine doesn’t work were lying and 450,000 to 500,000 could have been saved if they would have Listened to Trump in the First Place, Dr. Scott Atlas and others. I Always Thought Fauci was Selling Vaccines.
