In the ever-changing mind of top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, three feet of distance may now be enough between individuals.

In a Sunday CNN interview, Fauci was asked by host Jake Tapper if a new study that found “no significant difference” in schools which had six feet of distance and three feet of distance” suggests that three feet may be enough, Fauci answered, “It does indeed.”

“Does this study suggest to you that three feet is good enough?” Tapper asked.

“It does indeed, and that’s exactly the point I’m making,” Fauci answered.

Tapper noted that the six feet requirement is one of the “major hurdles” schools are facing to reopen. He asked Fauci if schools are correct to open up with three feet of distance now to which Fauci gave a non-answer.

“I don’t want to get ahead of official guidelines. I can tell you and promise you that I talk to the CDC…every single day,” the doctor said.

Fauci told the audience to “stay tuned” on new guidelines. At that point, Tapper laughed and said, “Well we are staying tuned, for a lot of us, that want schools to open safely.”

There is no word on if, or when, this will become an official mandate or guideline from the CDC.

The news comes as Rand Paul called out Fauci for telling “noble lies” to the public on Laura Ingraham’s show Friday.

“But you have to remember that his lies are noble lies, Laura. He’s not telling you this because he’s a mean man,” the senator said. “He’s telling you this because he feels sorry for you because you don’t understand, and Americans aren’t smart enough to make informed decisions. So, he fashions himself some sort of Greek philosopher. He tells you these noble lies.”

The Tate Brothers and Associates Face Human Trafficking Charges in Romania

In a recent development, the Tate brothers, Andrew and Tristan, along with two associates, find themselves at the center of a high-profile case involving human trafficking allegations.

The charges leveled against them indicate the formation of an organized criminal group in 2021 with the intent to carry out human trafficking operations not only in Romania but also in the United States and the United Kingdom, according to the BBC.

The investigation, which led to their arrest in December last year, has culminated in an indictment filed with the Bucharest court. According to the indictment, the Tate brothers are accused of luring their victims with false promises of love and marriage. Seven individuals have been identified as alleged victims, who were later coerced and subjected to a harrowing ordeal.

Prosecutors contend that the victims were taken to locations in Ilfov county, Romania, where they faced constant surveillance, intimidation, and control. The defendants allegedly forced the victims into debt and coerced them into participating in pornographic activities, with the explicit material subsequently shared on social media platforms. Shockingly, one of the defendants is accused of raping a woman on two occasions in March 2022, further amplifying the gravity of the charges.

While the trial is not expected to commence immediately, as a Romanian judge is granted 60 days to inspect the case files, it is anticipated to be a protracted legal battle. The complexity of the case and the severity of the charges will undoubtedly result in a lengthy trial process, with several years potentially passing before a verdict is reached.

Representatives for the Tate brothers released a statement acknowledging the unsurprising nature of the news but maintaining their belief in their innocence.

As reported by the BBC, the Tate brothers media team stared, “While this news is undoubtedly predictable, we embrace the opportunity it presents to demonstrate their innocence and vindicate their reputation.”

They expressed their eagerness to present a comprehensive body of evidence meticulously collected over time, which they believe will substantiate their claims of innocence and restore their tarnished reputation.

However, it should be noted that additional charges, such as money laundering and trafficking of minors, are still under investigation. If evidence is uncovered to support these allegations, a separate indictment could be filed, further complicating the legal proceedings for the defendants.

Andrew Tate, who gained notoriety through his participation in the reality television show Big Brother, has a controversial past, having been removed from the show in 2016 following a video that appeared to depict him assaulting a woman.

Despite subsequent bans on social media platforms due to his contentious statements, he has managed to amass a following, particularly among young men, by promoting an ostentatious and hyper-masculine lifestyle.

As the case unfolds, public attention will undoubtedly be drawn to the trial, with many eagerly awaiting the outcome and hoping for justice to be served for the alleged victims. The complex web of charges and the high-profile nature of the defendants ensure that this trial will be closely monitored and scrutinized by the media and the public alike.
