According to the CDC, the COVID-19 pandemic has claimed the lives of over 1.15 million Americans. However, after nearly four years of death and economic carnage, there’s been an underwhelming effort to get to the bottom of where it originated, so this may never happen again.
Independent presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr. attests that COVID-19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. And that a deliberate cover-up by powerful individuals who stood to benefit financially and professionally obscured the truth from the world.
Mary Holland asked Kennedy in a recent interview, “So, you’re a litigator, Bobby. If you could depose any of these cover-up co-conspirators, which ones would you depose, and what would you ask?” Listed below are the “principal villains,” according to Robert Kennedy Jr.
Several serious accusations have been leveled against Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former NIAID Director who led the U.S. government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, with respect the COVID cover-up:
Influencing CIA Review on the Origins of COVID-19: Reports suggest Fauci visited CIA headquarters to influence its review of COVID-19 origins, the House Oversight Committee reported. There are also allegations that the CIA did not record Fauci’s entries and exits at their building, implying an attempt to conceal his visits. This claim is based on information from a CIA whistleblower.
Pushing a Bunk Paper: Fauci is accused of promoting the “Proximal Origin of SARS CoV-2” paper, published in Nature Medicine, at meetings in the State Department and the White House. The purpose of this paper was to dismiss the lab leak theory of COVID-19’s origin.
Funding the Wuhan Lab: Fauci had motivations to push for a zoonotic origin theory of the virus, as his agency had funded research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. And if the origins of COVID-19 were publicly traced back to his doing, Fauci knows there would be grave consequences.
History of Bug Escapes: Kennedy mentioned earlier in the interview that in 2014, following the high-profile escape of three bugs from U.S. labs, 300 scientists sent a letter to President Obama, urging him to shut down Anthony Fauci’s gain-of-function research. Obama issued a moratorium and shut down 18 of the worst projects by Anthony Fauci. In the end, he really didn’t shut them down. Instead, Obama moved the research offshore to places like Ukraine, the former Soviet State of Georgia, and the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China.
Now, it is widely accepted that COVID-19 originated from that very lab in Wuhan, China. It appears the 300 scientists were right when they said Anthony Fauci would start a global pandemic.
Fauci’s boss, Francis Collins, former Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is also accused of playing a major role in the COVID-19 cover-up:
Dr. Francis Collins is accused of suppressing information and discussion about the lab leak hypothesis. It is alleged that Dr. Collins, in cooperation with Dr. Anthony Fauci and others, was involved in a “whole of government” propaganda campaign to avoid political blowback from this hypothesis.
Dr. Robert Kadlec implicitly acknowledged involvement in a conspiracy to defraud the public about the lab leak theory of SARS-CoV-2’s emergence, stating that the intention was to avoid political accusations and allegations. The allegations suggest that Collins and Fauci were aware of and possibly involved in covering up the lab origins of the virus, using tactics like suppressing discussion and conspiring with others using “burner” cell phones.

Jeremy Farrar, the Chief Scientist of the World Health Organization and the former director of the Wellcome Trust (akin to a U.K. version of the Gates Foundation), played a major role in shaping the narrative surrounding COVID-19:
Role in Dismissing Lab Leak Hypothesis: Farrar was one of the signatories of a letter published in The Lancet in February 2020, which dismissed the possibility of a lab origin of COVID-19, condemning theories suggesting a non-natural origin of the virus as “conspiracy theories.” He also played a significant role in the authorship of a piece in Nature Medicine, which claimed that SARS-CoV-2 was not a laboratory construct or a purposefully manipulated virus.
Involvement in Propaganda Campaign: Accusations suggest that Farrar was a central figure in a propaganda campaign to convince the global public that COVID-19 could not have originated from a lab. This involved the coordinated release of scientific statements and publications to support this narrative.
Secret Communications: Farrar is reported to have used clandestine methods such as burner phones and secret meetings to discuss the COVID-19 origin narrative. There are claims that these actions were part of an effort to manage the global perception of the virus’s origins, potentially as a response to concerns about bioterrorism.
Bill Gates, known for co-founding Microsoft and his “philanthropic” activities through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has an odd obsession with public health. Gates has been deeply involved in vaccine development and distribution, particularly in Africa. With no exception, he was also thoroughly involved with the development of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Influence on Global Health Policy and Funding: The Gates Foundation is a major donor to the World Health Organization, contributing more than several countries combined. Gates’ investments in global health initiatives, like Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), have shaped policies and funding in the health sector. This begs the question: are the policies based on the interests of public health or in the interests of pleasing Bill Gates?
Control Over Pandemic Response: Accusations suggest that Gates, through his foundation and associated organizations, exerted significant influence over the global response to COVID-19. Organizations founded or directly involved with Gates, such as Gavi and CEPI, have been central to the pandemic response, leading to claims that Gates effectively directed the world’s approach to tackling the virus.
Financial Gain from Vaccinations: Investing in global health organizations aimed at increasing access to vaccines created a 20-to-1 return in financial benefit, Bill Gates told CNBC in 2019, turning $10 billion into a staggering $200 billion. The COVID-19 vaccine was no different. “Bill Gates secured hundreds of millions of dollars in profits from his foundation’s impeccably timed investment in BioNTech,” The Dossier reported. In the third quarter of 2021, after dumping 86% of his shares, Gates reversed course and started to publicly acknowledge the shortcomings of the COVID-19 vaccines.
Pandemic Simulation Exercises: Gates’ Foundation has been involved in pandemic simulation exercises like Event 201 and Catastrophic Contagion. Event 201 was conducted just months before the reported outbreak in Wuhan. These exercises, conducted in partnership with organizations like the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and the WHO, have been interpreted by some as evidence of Gates’ foreknowledge or planning for a pandemic scenario.
Public Image and Media Influence: Gates has also been accused of shaping his public image through strategic media partnerships and funding. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation spends millions on media partnerships, influencing coverage of global health issues, including the coronavirus pandemic.
Former Deputy Director of the CIA, Avril Danica Haines, now the nation’s Director of National Intelligence (DNI), participated in Event 201 in October 2019. There is evidence that at that time COVID-19 was already circulating.
Instead of promoting healthier lifestyles or Vitamin D, the Event 201 panel discussed how to use “this pandemic as a pretext for clamping down totalitarian controls.”
“And the first thing they said is, ‘We got to limit free speech; we can’t allow people to criticize government policies.’ And particularly, ‘We cannot allow people to talk about a lab leak.’ They’re doing this in October of 2019. Before any of us have ever heard of Wuhan!” Kennedy exclaimed.
Peter Daszak is the President of EcoHealth Alliance, a nonprofit organization that funds research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Daszak is credited with organizing a letter published in The Lancet, which denounced the lab leak theory of COVID-19 as a conspiracy theory. This letter was used by Facebook to justify censoring discussions related to the lab leak hypothesis. Recently-released documents also show his group had been soliciting – and receiving – taxpayer money to prepare for a lab leak involving a lab-enhanced virus before the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2015, he made the statement that Dr. David Martin calls an “admission to domestic terrorism.”
Daszak said, “To increase the public understanding of the need for medical countermeasures, such as a Pan-Coronavirus vaccine, a key driver is the media, and the economics will follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of the process.”
Ralph Baric and Shi Zhengli
Ralph Baric is a prominent American virologist and a professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is recognized for his extensive research in the field of coronaviruses.
Shi Zhengli is a Chinese virologist affiliated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where she heads up the Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases. Zhengli is often referred to as “the Bat Lady” due to her extensive research on bats as the source of several viruses that can infect humans, including the SARS coronavirus.
In a 2022 interview, the late Dr. Vladimir “Zev” Zelenko brought to light a troubling series of events connected to Mr. Baric, alleging that he, alongside, Shi Zhengli, created the COVID-19 virus.
1998/1999: Dr. Ralph Baric perfected cross-species transmissibility.
2002: A patent by Dr. Baric describes how to take a bat coronavirus and make it lethal to human lung tissue.
2015: Dr. Baric and Dr. Shi Zhengli perfected the technique of making a bat coronavirus infectious to human beings.
Gain-of-function research was outlawed in the United States, so it was outsourced to Wuhan, China, where Baric and Zhengli finished the job.
“In March of 2020, I [Dr. Zelenko] used a paper to build my treatment protocol. What I didn’t realize [about] that paper [which] was authored in 2010, [it] was written by Dr. Ralph Baric. In other words, the guy who made the bomb also made the antidote to the bomb.”
“Those, I think, are kind of the principal villains in the book,” Kennedy concluded.
“There are a lot of others, too.” Kennedy’s new book, The Wuhan Cover-Up: The Terrifying Bioweapons Arms Race, is available for purchase on skyhorsepublishing.com and Amazon. The full interview with Robert Kennedy Jr. is included below:
