I wouldn’t call this a smoking gun, but it’s pretty telling.
Who threatens people with death over some idea or theory they are supporting?
People with something to hide, or something terribly dear to lose.
According to reports, the former Director of The CDC received death threats because he supported the theory that Covid-19 originated from a lab leak in Wuhan.
Personally, I never thought that was a far fetched claim, and I am a strong supporter of the theory myself.
We of course know that there are people both here and abroad who have everything to lose by the truth coming out, so the death threats are perfectly fitting.
Here is what we currently know:
Facebook banned all discussions on Wuhan lab leak theory for over a year & people talking about it were ostracised!
The ban is now lifted & there is some credence to the theory by mainstream media.

Former CDC Director Redford tells @VanityFair that he received death threats (while a federal employee) from scientists for suggesting the lab theory should be looked at.

The Epoch Times had this to say:
Saying he was “threatened and ostracized because I proposed another hypothesis,” Redfield told the magazine that he “expected it from politicians. I didn’t expect it from science.”
Redfield noted that some death threats came from individuals who thought he was being racially insensitive, but other threats came from prominent scientists, whom he didn’t name.
In March, Redfield said that it is “not unusual for respiratory pathogens that are being worked on in a laboratory to infect a laboratory worker,” noting that he’s “spent [his] life” studying viruses.
“Normally, when a pathogen goes from a zoonot to human,” he added, “it takes a while for it to figure out how to become more and more efficient in human-to-human transmission.”
CDC or should I say fauci lied at the beginning about the origin of the virus. The former CDC director has death threats because he suspecting foul play in China. Do we really want to trust people who are in bed with China?

Washington Examiner wrote about Redfield’s conviction in the theory:
On March 26, Redfield went public with his theory that COVID-19 escaped from the Wuhan lab accidentally and hinted that the mishap followed “gain-of-function” research, which intends to bolster the infectious capacity of viruses.
“That’s my own view. It’s only an opinion. I’m allowed to have opinions now,” he said during an interview with CNN. “You know, I am of the point of view that I still think the most likely etiology of this pathology in Wuhan was from a laboratory. You know, escaped. Other people don’t believe that. That’s fine. Science will eventually figure it out. It’s not unusual for respiratory pathogens that are being worked on in a laboratory to infect the laboratory worker.”
He added: “That’s not implying any intentionality. It’s my opinion, right? But I am a virologist. I have spent my life in virology. I do not believe this somehow came from a bat to a human, and at that moment in time, the virus came to the human, became one of the most infectious viruses that we know in humanity for human-to-human transmission. Normally, when a pathogen goes from zoonotic to a human, it takes a while for it to figure out how to become more and more efficient in human-to-human transmission. I just don’t think this makes biological sense.”
