The NIH received the relevant documents in 2018 and reviewed the documents in 2020 and again in 2021. The NIH--specifically, Collins, Fauci, and Tabak--lied to Congress, lied to the press, and lied to the public. Knowingly. Willfully. Brazenly.

How many times can one grantee violate the Terms and Conditions of one NIH grant without being penalized? (Apparently, if the grantee is EcoHealth Alliance, the number is at least four.) theintercept.com/2021/10/01/…

The NIH are clearly feeling the heat, which can only be a good thing. Maybe someone at the EHA is going to squeal.

So is the CREID pro quo next on the chopping block?

Happy to see EHA being held to account. But bad idea to cite chimps and humans as analogies. Primate mutation rate would be orders of magnitude slower than coronaviruses. Second some of our politicans may not like to be reminded of the 96% similarity

"decades removed" [assuming natural evolution]:
Your 40 years estimate assumes natural evolution. But serial passaging in the presence of a mutagen like ribavirin or remdesivir can accumulate the same number of mutations in months.
