Elon Musk teases the release of the bombshell ‘Twitter Files’ referring to Dr. Fauci focused
Elon Musk this week denied the release of bombastic Twitter files related to now-ex-director of the Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Dr. Anthony Fauci, teased as part of what he calls the “Fauci Files.”
On Sunday, the Twitter CEO tweeted his followers: “Hope you are having a great day 1 2023! One thing is for sure, it will never be boring.”
Then Juanita Broaddrick, an 80-year-old former nursing home administrator who once claimed she was raped by former US President Bill Clinton in 1978, responded to Musk’s tweet and said she was waiting for #FauciFiles.
“Later this week,” Musk replied, making it clear that it was only a matter of time before his argument with America’s top infectious disease expert resurfaced.

The “Twitter files” are a series of revelations by journalists wiretapped by Musk that uncover recent controversies, including Twitter’s decision to ban former President Donald Trump from tweeting after invading the capital last January .
Twitter also recently leaked internal discussions between employees about its own censorship of stories related to Hunter Biden’s personal laptop during the 2022 presidential election.
Recent revelations from the social media giant include how both the Trump and Biden administrations have relied on Twitter to tone down content during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sunday wasn’t the first time Musk attacked 82-year-old Fauci online. More and more tweets related to the president’s former chief medical adviser (from 2021 to 2022) shared by the Tesla founder appear to be increasing in volume over time.
On Dec. 29, Musk claimed that several Twitter employees have an internal “Fauci Fan Club” Slack channel. He then tweeted that Twitter should change policy and “follow the science, which necessarily involves reasoned inquiry into the science.”
The comments came in response to Fauci’s disregard for the Tesla kingpin barbs in a recent interview, after he called for the doctor to be prosecuted for allegedly starting the pandemic by using illegal, government-sanctioned experiments.
Last week, Musk claimed that several former Twitter employees were part of a Slack channel dubbed “Fauci Fan Club” — in homage to the now-retired US infectious disease expert
The controversial experiments, dubbed “gain-of-function” research, involve manipulating viruses to make them heavier or more transmissible in hopes of forestalling future mutations and outbreaks.
“Despite these glaring issues, Twitter still had an internal Slack channel called ‘Fauci Fan Club,'” Musk wrote in reference to the doctor’s claim that Musk’s theories should be ignored as ‘misinformation.’
Musk — who tweeted “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci” two weeks ago — linked a Newsweek article titled “Fauci was ‘untrue’ to Congress on Wuhan lab research, new documents seem to show.”
However, the story followed up on a September 2021 report by The Intercept, which found that the National Institutes of Health (NIH), then led by Fauci, had received federal grants for the “gain-of-function” research had provided.
Musk then added a May 2021 National Review article that pointed to the fact that in 2012, Fauci had previously argued that the benefits of gain-of-function outweighed the risks of a global pandemic.
Musk claimed in an accompanying caption that Fauci and his team may have accidentally manufactured the virus, writing, “‘Gain-function’ in this context is just another way of saying ‘bioweapon’.”
“Some good nuggets in there [the National Review] article,” Musk added cheekily.
Musk also claimed last week that Dr. Fauci lied about the White House approving the gain-of-function research, and shared a 2012 article reporting on the 82-year-old in which he argued that the benefits of gain-of-function of function outweighed the risks brought by a pandemic
Musk also poked fun at the left-wing acceptance of gender identity to his 12.1 million followers on Twitter, skewing it with his falling out with Dr. Fauci in connection. “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,” the Tesla CEO tweeted Dec. 12
On Friday, in a separate matter, Musk mocked Fauci, calling him “creepy” after The New York Times revealed that the doctor, scientist and immunologist has decorated his home office with fan portraits of himself.
Meanwhile, Fauci — who, after 54 years at the NIH’s helm, said he would step down at the end of the year — has faced fierce criticism for his handling of the pandemic, with Musk leading the charge.
Fauci, who was initially a revered figure during his early lockdowns and mask-mandated measures, has come under particular scrutiny for previously supporting the controversial research while denying his team had secretly funded it during the pandemic.
Fauci, who was not a household name to most Americans until 2020, when he became the face of the county’s Covid-19 response, has also vehemently denied claims that Covid-19 was leaked in a lab — a theory that experts have so far challenged could not rule out.

SSince taking over Twitter in October, Musk has been very open about his belief that Fauci was secretly lying to Congress funded “gain-of-function” research that potentially killed “millions of people.”
In an interview with the scientific journal Nature, Fauci said comments like Musk’s “incite a lot of hate in people” and are the reason he’s been “arming federal agents with me all the time.”
Questions still remain about the origins of Covid. Reporters who asked questions about the issue at Fauci’s farewell speech in November were shut down by White House staffers.
Fauci made his final appearance in the official briefing room last month after 54 years with the NIH.
