Wonder who made the request and what they were hoping to uncover.

TLDR:
Fauci was warned as early as 1-4-2020 that Covid 19 was engineered in a Chinese lab
He always denied those claims and said that C-19 jumped from bats to humans
He sent emails to colleagues in April 2020 that suggested the virus was engineered [despite these emails, he still stated publicly that the virus was transmitted naturally]
Fauci got a personal 'thank you' for backing the “natural origin” theory from the head of a nonprofit that used a $3.4 million government grant to fund research at the Chinese lab suspected of creating the virus, emails show

Lots of the emails are blacked out, so a lot of his opinions can't be exactly stated, fwiw

Are any legitimate news outlets reporting anything that truly damages credibility here, because I'm not seeing it.

Personally, I'd love the lab leak to eventually prove to be correct so that maybe China could finally be held accountable by the world for their recklessness. "Owning Fauci" is not part of my motivation. In working with Chinese colleagues, I'm sure he had to be diplomatic at times. Chinese scientists are not immune to state retribution. Just like that doctor who tried to warn people and got in trouble with the authorities and then eventually died.

I don't get why Fauci is some sort of boogeyman to certain conservatives. And I'm sure he'd only need to be wrong once to permanently lose all credibility. At worst, he gave his opinion based on the evidence available to him at the time. Being willing to change your mind when presented with compelling countervailing evidence is not a sign of weakness, but of intelligence. It's hard to argue with people who don't think this way. If there's really something nefarious in his actions, let's see it.

because he’s the polar opposite of their lord and savior Donald J. Trump and they’re looking for anyone other than him to pin blame for the pandemic on

I can't believe he parroted not to hoard masks when it started.

I can't believe he parroted the latest opinions of medical professional community.

I can't believe he endorsed safe and effective vaccines.

The people that want him to be wrong already think he's been "wrong" repeatedly, so it's just more fuel for the fire.

This, to me, is the most important issue. Fauci seemed to act honestly and faithfully the entire time, given his resources. China needs to be held responsible for bio-terrorism or put on notice by the rest of the world.
