"People are tired of hearing Fauci and all these idiots, these people, these people that have gotten it wrong. Fauci is a nice guy, he's been here for 500 years, he called every one of them wrong," Trump told campaign staffers. "Every time he goes on television there's always a bomb.

"Earlier this year, the New York Times reported that the GRU successfully hacked Burisma’s computers.
'The timing of the Russian campaign mirrors the G.R.U. hacks we saw in 2016 against the D.N.C. and [Clinton campaign chairman] John Podesta,' Oren Falkowitz, co-founder of Area 1, a security firm that discovered the hacking attempts, told the Times.

Remember 2016 and the news stories surfacing about Hillary Clinton and her emails? Remember the document dumps on her emails and Trump jumping all over the documents ultimately proclaiming “Lock her up”. Well, consider this from CNN:
"’Remember that Hillary Clinton gave Russia 20 percent of American uranium and, you know, she was paid a fortune,’ Trump said on the campaign trail in October 2016. ‘You know, they got a tremendous amount of money.’
