Dr Fauci talks on the Threats He Faced Working For Trump

Dr. Anthony Fauci,  Chief Medical adviser and the United States’ top infectious disease expert for Joe Biden’s  has opened up on how hard it was working for Trump. He also revealed that he faced so many death threats and last year he opened a letter that was filled with a “puff of powder.” While the substance later turned out to be benign, he said he feared it was either lethal anthrax or ricin. In a wide-ranging interview with The New York Times, Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, stated his relief at now working for Biden and said despite the enormous political pressure he faced from Trump he never considered retiring. Detailing his experience, Fauci said when he opened the letter, a powder immediately covered his face and chest. His beefed-up security detail, which was brought on after he began receiving threats , advised Fauci to stay still before a hazmat team “sprayed him down.” “It was a benign nothing,” Fauci said of the substance found in the envelope. “But it was frightening. My wife and my children were more disturbed than I was. I looked at it somewhat fatalistically. It had to be one of three things: A hoax. Or anthrax, which meant I’d have to go on Cipro for a month. Or if it was ricin , I was dead, so bye-bye.” Fauci said he began receiving death threats on March 28 last year, not long after Trump gave him a high-profile role in the fight against COVID-19. Fauci and Trump often seemed at odds during the former president’s final year in office as Trump was unhappy with Fauci’s science-driven approach to the pandemic. Fauci said Trump would sometimes call him after he gave an interview, asking why he didn’t provide a more “positive” outlook on the pandemic . Other advisers, like former chief of staff Mark Meadows, would call Fauci to ask why he had contradicted the president, according to the NY[…]

Trump Vs Biden: US Attorney General takes action,issue fresh orders over fraud claims.

US Attorney General, William Barr has authorized the Justice Department (DOJ) to look into the claims of voting irregularities made by incumbent President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. The Attorney General made the authorization in a memo he signed on Monday and addressed to U.S. Attorneys; the assistant attorneys general for the DOJ’s criminal division; civil rights division; the national security division; and the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Christopher Wray. “Now that the voting has concluded, it is imperative that the American people can trust that our elections were conducted in such a way that the outcomes accurately reflect the will of the voters,” the memo read. The memo comes after 39 House Republicans sent a letter to the Attorney General pressing him to allow available DOJ resources to look into allegations of voting irregularities across the country in several key states. The President Donald Trump campaign has filed a number of lawsuits in some of those states where the incumbent believes he had won “massively.” The Attorney General noted that although states are primarily responsible for the conduct and supervision of elections, the DOJ has “an obligation to ensure that federal elections are conducted in such a way that the American people can have full confidence in their electoral process and their government.” He said concerns that overt actions taken by the DOJ in this case are greatly minimized, since the voting has concluded. He also said he has already authorized the DOJ to pursue substantial allegations of voting and voting tabulation irregularities in specific instances. “Given this, and given that voting in our current elections has now concluded, I authorize you to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions in certain cases, as I have already done in specific instances,” he said. He said inquiries and reviews may be conducted if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if[…]

US election: Protesting Trump supporters reject Biden’s victory

As some streets of many American cities danced in joy Saturday at the news of Joe Biden’s victory in the presidential election, Donald Trump supporters refused to accept the result, alleging fraud and conspiracy. In some cities like Phoenix, Philadelphia and Atlanta, the outgoing president’s loyalists gathered under the slogan of #StopTheSteal, repeating Trump’s unfounded allegations that Biden’s win was based on cheating. These particular group of supporters wore red Trump hats, held signs reading “Stop The Steal” and waved American flags or Trump banners bearing the slogan: “Keep America Great.” “I think they’re way too early,” said Donna McCollum, a retired 77-year-old who said she can trace her family history back to the American revolution. “The electoral college is the one to decide. And that has not been decided just yet. And there’s a lot of fraud here. It needs to be either redone totally or recounted.” She added: “Look at these people out here. There’s no way Biden won Arizona.” “This is ground zero for cheating in this election. I thought it was important to be here,” said Steve Padgett, a 57-year-old who works in sales. Sophia Rotunno, a 52-year-old administrative worker, said: “I have faith that our President Donald Trump did win a fair election.” “But the Democrats are not allowing a fair election to be had,” she said, falsely. “So I feel it has to go to the courts.” “There’s too much smoke and some fire in a lot of places,” said Huff Croxton, a 51-year-old who wore an American flag as a cape, referring to groundless allegations of electoral fraud. “I want to see all this settled out and let’s see at the end who wins. And if Biden wins fair and square, then I’ll jump on board with the media.” In Phoenix, Shannon Morris, a 51-year-old trauma recovery life coach, said she would “fight” for Trump, but in a “peaceful way.” I think that Trump fought for our country, and I’m going to fight[…]
