Report: Email shows Fauci planned dinner with friend despite COVID recommendations

Following a series of lawsuits filed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), thousands of emails from Dr. Anthony Fauci have been published by news outlets seeking to provide an inside look into the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director’s thoughts and actions in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, one such message is garnering considerable scrutiny.

According to the Daily Caller, among the newly published messages is one exchange in which Fauci, who also serves as a top adviser to the White House on the coronavirus, apparently made plans to get together with a friend in early May 2020, even as the pandemic was in full swing in Washington.

A friendly dinner

On May 1, 2020, Dr. Ezekiel Emmanuel, known widely for his staunch support of the Obama-era Affordable Care Act (ACA), had invited Fauci over for a dinner — an invitation the doctor appeared to accept the following day, even as he was publicly urging the American people to refrain from gathering amid a rise in coronavirus cases nationwide.

“You are a national — international — treasure. And we are depending on your sanity and smarts. We can have you and [redacted] over for dinner on the porch and order in from [redacted] or something. Anytime you are ready,” Emmanuel reportedly wrote.

On May 2, Fauci replied: “Let us try to do this next weekend.”

“We really should be”

According to the Daily Caller, Fauci had said just a month prior that he supported the idea of a nationwide “stay-at-home” order to help curb the spread of COVID-19 — a mandate that his friendly get-together would have violated.

During the interview, which aired on CNN, Fauci even seemed to dismiss concerns about states’ rights in light of federal public health mandates. Speaking on a national stay-at-home order, he reportedly said: “If you look at what’s going on in this country, I just don’t understand why we’re not doing that. We really should be.”

Violating orders

Conservative columnist Phil Kerpen, who first drew attention to the email exchange between Fauci and Emmanuel, noted in a follow-up tweet that Washington had been under its own lockdown order at the time of the exchange, one that didn’t expire until a month later, in June.

The order doesn’t seem to include an exception for people named “Fauci.”
