Appearing before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, Ratcliffe was questioned by Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.) about Fauci's infamous sworn testimony before the Senate back in November of 2021. Fauci told Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) at the time that the NIH, which oversees the NIAID, did not fund any gain of function research.
(Related: Former National Institutes of Health [NIH] director Francis Collins also lied about gain of function research and other elements of the covid scamdemic.)
Rep. Malliotakis revealed that Fauci knew, as he was told in an email dated from January of 2021, that the NIH had, in fact, formed a monetary relationship with the Wuhan Institute of Virology through the EcoHealth Alliance, which was, in fact, conducting gain of function research in communist China using American taxpayer dollars.
"Some of Dr. Fauci's testimony is inconsistent with some of the intelligence that we have that remains classified as well as inconsistent with some information that is publicly available," Ratcliffe responded carefully to Rep. Malliotakis' questioning – watch below:

Gain of function research, just to get you back up to speed, involves modifying pathogens like coronaviruses with the intent of making them deadlier or more transmissible. The claim is that such research needs to be done in order to ascertain future pandemic threats, or so we are told.
In truth, it appears that a few mad scientist psychopaths embedded within the highest agencies of government commissioned such research overseas, since it is illegal stateside, for the purpose of creating a deadly bioweapon that they could then unleash upon the world.
Domestic funding for gain of function research dried up in 2014 when Barack Hussein Obama was president due to the risks involved. It was at that time that gain of function research appears to have been outsourced to overseas locations in order to sidestep that ban.
Around 2017, the NIH lifted Obama's funding "pause" following the creation of a special oversight framework. American taxpayer dollars were then sent overseas for the purpose of manipulating bat coronaviruses in Wuhan, which is where the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) is believed to have originated.
In his earlier defenses, Fauci tried to claim that the work being done at the Wuhan lab did not constitute gain of function research. This was denied by Dr. Richard Ebright, who clarified that the experiments taking place in Wuhan did, in fact, constitute gain of function research.
To this very day, the Biden regime still openly supports gain of function research, despite widespread concerns about the risks involved. Back in February, National Security Council communications coordinator John Kirby stated that Biden "believes that [the research is] important to help prevent future pandemics."
Congress, meanwhile, continues to probe gain of function research to try to figure out whether or not the "lab leak" hypothesis is the most likely explanation for covid's release.
