Among the handful of emails relating to the COVID-19 pandemic that Dr. Anthony Fauci exchanged with Mark Zuckerberg since last year was one from the Facebook CEO that contained several offers—with one mysteriously hidden part that appeared to be a controversial deal.
The bulk of emails that contain more facts than ever about the real picture of the lethal pandemic was published by Buzzed and Washington Post on June 1, obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The March 17, 2020 email sent to Fauci, the White House Chief Medical Adviser from Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, began with Zuckerberg thanking him for his leadership on responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I wanted to send a note of thanks for your leadership and everything you’re doing to make our country’s response to this outbreak as effective as possible,” Facebook CEO wrote. “I also wanted to share a few ideas of ways we could help get your message out, but I understand you’re incredibly busy, so don’t feel a need to reply unless these seem interesting.”
Zuckerberg then introduced “a Coronavirus Information Hub,” which he wanted to develop as a means of serving “200+ million Americans, 2.5 billion people worldwide” during the harsh early time of the CCP Virus spread.
Zuckerberg’s plan required Fauci’s participation, as he wanted to get more valid information.
“As a central part of this hub, I think it would be useful to include a video from you because people trust and want to hear from experts rather than just a bunch of agencies and political leaders.”
The Coronavirus Information Hub that Facebook intended to create included Q&A sessions that Zuckerberg said would involve other experts together with Fauci for “authoritative information.”
Then there was one final offer that was mysteriously redacted, which according to the FOIA b(4) exemption, was either “trade secrets” or highly secretive “commercial or financial information.”
Clues from other emails provided that the offer may have been something extra. Responding to the social media titan saying that he would love to join the Coronavirus Hub, Fauci wrote, “Also, your idea about (b)(4) was very exciting.”
In a separate email from an NIAID official, the deal was said to be “an even bigger” bargain than just having “the weight and impact of television—really, more so,” with the Facebook video.
“The sooner we get that offer up the food-chain the better. I gave Bill Hall a heads-up about this opportunity and he is standing by to discuss this with HHS and WH comms, but I didn’t want him to do anything without being aware of the offer,” wrote Fauci’s subordinate Courtney Billet, reports LifeSiteNews.
“Is it OK if I hand this aspect off to Bill to determine who the best point of contact would be so the Administration can take advantage of this offer, soonest?” Billet asked.
Lifesitenews noted the coincidence of the date Billet’s email was sent with the news that location data of social media users were being submitted to federal usage as a collaborative effort to respond to the CCP Virus.
Not the usual catchall b(5) deliberative process here.. but a less common b(4) "trade secrets and commercial or financial information obtained from a person [that is] privileged or confidential" on Zuck's offer to Fauci.— Phil Kerpen (@kerpen) June 2, 2021
