Fauci Deposition report: “he can’t recall practically anything dealing with his Covid response!”

Fauci Deposition report: “he can’t recall practically anything dealing with his Covid response!”

The deposition of Anthony Fauci took place today in the lawsuit commenced by Louisiana and Missouri, alleging that numerous Biden administration officials colluded with and directed big tech and social media giants to censor dissenting scientific and medical voices with regard to Covid.

We covered the case and the court order for Fauci (and others) to testify under oath in these posts:

We don’t know much about what happened. The deposition, while it was recorded, was not streamed. And there apparently is a protective order prohibiting the parties or those in attendance from separately recording.

In advance of the deposition, Missouri Attorney General (and Senator-elect) Eric Schmitt promised they would attempt to get answers from Fauci:

“Tomorrow, along with my colleague from Louisiana, my Office and I will depose Dr. Anthony Fauci in our lawsuit against the Biden Administration for allegedly colluding with social media companies to censor freedom of speech,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “Since we filed our landmark lawsuit, we have uncovered documents and discovery that show clear coordination between the Biden Administration and social media companies on censoring speech, but we’re not done yet. We plan to get answers on behalf of the American people. Stay tuned.”

Well, it’s not clear how many answers were given. Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry, who attended the deposition, tweeted that Fauci had a lack of memory

Wow! It was amazing to spend 7 hours with Dr. Fauci. The man who single-handedly wrecked the U.S. economy based upon “the science.” Only to discover that he can’t recall practically anything dealing with his Covid response!

At least he doesn’t feel guilty.

Having sat through, and given, several depositions over my lifetime (none of which litigation I was a party to) that is what lawyers tell you to say. “I cannot recall”, and “do you have any documents that might refresh my memory” after which you basically say “I can’t recall” again.

In his defense, it would be hard to remember just what he said at any given time since he’d often contradict himself.

Play him the video of his statements before asking him each of the next questions about it so he can’t squirm out of having said it.

I know it wouldn’t work in a court of law, but...

To everybody else...

Take whatever Fauxi says, and assume that the opposite is true.

Same with Biden and Pelosi and Schumer and most democrats and the left-wing media.

That’s how depositions go. You don’t answer any questions. You just “don’t remember.”

“Play him the video of his statements”

Considering his addiction to the camera and being an attention hound you’d think they would use that to be his undoing........you’d think

He's going to get eviscerated in Congress. I mean, talk about putting conservative media back on the map. This guy squeals like a stuck pig every time he sits under oath.

But damn, there better be a plan other than just stomping an old retiree in a Select Committee (and there needs to be a Select Committee).

--- “he can't recall practically anything dealing with his Covid response!”

Why not? It worked for the Clintons, and besides, "at this point, what difference does it make."

As Hannah Arendt reminded us, evil can be very mundane. Very, very mundane and "in your face" too.

Always suspected Fauci was not really “science”.

He’s using the love of his life, Hillary Clinton’s “I don’t recall” defense.

Why is anyone surprised?

His exaggerations and hyperbole back in the 1980s during the AIDS pseudo-scare should have gotten him fired or at least relegated him to the basement. He never should have been allowed access to the press ever again. This was no secret! Putting him in the limelight again is all on Trump!

Trump or his staff seem to have forgotten the 1980s!

I like your enthusiasm but with McCarthy at the helm, have no faith in GOP.
Unless they put this POS under oath & get the heavy hitters to grill him, Fauci will walk free.
