What Did The Article Say?

The article stated that "the panel of officers chosen to weigh JAG's case against Anthony Stephen Fauci rendered a verdict of guilty after listening to Vice Adm. Darse E. Crandall's evidence, which summarized 6-hours of witness testimony and hard evidence proving beyond reasonable doubt that Fauci committed treason for profit, betrayed his Hippocratic Oath, caused immeasurable suffering, sickness, and death, preyed on disadvantaged children, and conspired to overthrow President Trump in hopes of seating a president more sympathetic to vaccine mandates."

A day after the article was published, Fauci gave an interview on CBS News on the travel mask mandate.

Confirmation was also sought from the Pentagon to verify the claim made in the article. But a Pentagon official told Lead Stories that the Read Raw News story is a fabrication.
