The documents clearly state that ‘gain-of-function’ research was funded, which Dr. Fauci denied under oath.
One may disagree with the law, but still consider that whether or not he will be ever charged for his ‘crime’ is more a matter of politics than the law.
What should concern us is that now that it looking considerably more likely that the lab leak hypothesis is more plausible than some tenuous wet market scenario, we should look very unfavourably on the push for funding to secure more research into gain-of-function, using the pretext of the pandemic. When the very thing one is advocating is more likely than not to be root cause of the very problem one is claiming one wants to solve, then alarm bells should be ringing, resoundingly.
Of course the quiet part is never said out loud, exactly what type of research will people be advocating for? And will there be attempts to redefine and limit what gain-of-function actually means?
