Fauci Finally Admits What Everyone Already Knew About 6-Feet COVID Rule in Humiliating Testimony


Former White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted there was no scientific basis for the rigid 6-foot social distancing rule he rabidly pushed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bombshell admission came to light on Friday when Republican Rep. Brad Wenstrup of Ohio — the chairman of the House select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic — released transcripts of Fauci’s two-day congressional testimony from January.

During the closed-door deposition, Fauci admitted he essentially made up the 6-foot rule and it was not based on scientific research.

When asked how the rule came about, the liberal icon replied, “You know, I don’t recall. It sort of just appeared. I don’t recall, like, a discussion of whether it should be 5 or 6 or whatever.”

Fauci was then asked: “Did you see any studies that supported 6 feet?”

In response, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said, “I was not aware of studies. That, in fact, that would be a very difficult study to do.”

Fauci’s flippant answer appears to contradict his somber warnings during the pandemic for Americans to stay 6 feet away from each other.

Do you think Fauci should be punished?

At the time, the government bureaucrat’s word was treated like a commandment from God: Whatever he recommended was tyrannically enforced by countless federal, state and local officials.

Many who dared to question Fauci’s edicts were attacked by the corporate media, fired from their jobs, banned from social media and ostracized as anti-scientific “conspiracy theorists.”

Meanwhile, the arbitrary 6-foot social distancing rule was enforced with despotic authority in businesses, schools, gyms, playgrounds, restaurants and other venues.

Americans were told not to visit their ailing parents in nursing homes, attend church services or hold family gatherings such as funerals, weddings and Christmas reunions.

In another damning part of his closed-door testimony, Fauci said he didn’t recall if he saw any scientific evidence supporting mask mandates for children.

“Do you recall reviewing any studies or data supporting masking for children?” he was asked.

“I don’t recall specifically that I did,” Fauci replied. “I might have.”

As a reminder, not only did Fauci push mask mandates, but he also said we might have to wear masks forever.

Fauci is scheduled to testify before the subcommittee again on Monday.

This will be the first time he will testify publicly since retiring in December 2023.

This shameless charlatan has a lot to answer for.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
