Twitter has banned @ExposeFauci, an account set up by Project Veritas to promote the organization’s latest bombshell, a drop of documents regarding U.S. government involvement in gain of function research on bat-borne coronaviruses in China.

Project Veritas’ main account on Twitter was banned in February 2021. Twitter claimed that the journalistic outfit’s attempts to interview Facebook VP Guy Rosen at his home violated the platform’s policies on “posting private information.”

Twitter has not yet given an excuse for banning the ExposeFauci account.

The account was set up to promote Project Veritas’ latest scoop, a leak of military documents about gain of function research.

Via Project Veritas:

The report states that EcoHealth Alliance approached DARPA in March 2018, seeking funding to conduct gain of function research of bat borne coronaviruses. The proposal, named Project Defuse, was rejected by DARPA over safety concerns and the notion that it violates the basis gain of function research moratorium.

According to the documents, NIAID, under the direction of Dr. Fauci, went ahead with the research in Wuhan, China and at several sites across the U.S.

Dr. Fauci has repeatedly maintained, under oath, that the NIH and NAIAD have not been involved in gain of function research with the EcoHealth Alliance program. But according to the documents obtained by Project Veritas which outline why EcoHealth Alliance’s proposal was rejected, DARPA certainly classified the research as gain of function.

You can read the full documents here.

The documents were released a day before NIAID director Anthony Fauci appeared before the Senate for another hearing. At the hearing, Fauci complained that Sen. Rand Paul – who has consistently maintained that the NIAID director is trying to cover up his agency’s involvement in gain of function research – has called for him to be fired.

Twitter has also suspended the account of Eric Spracklen, who is associated with Project Veritas and posts the organization’s content on the platform.
