Republicans Pledge To Investigate Dr. Fauci Regardless Of Resignation

  • Dr. Anthony Fauci plans to resign at the end of this year, but his announcement sparked a series of pledges from House Republicans to investigate him, regardless of his resignation.
  • Fauci announced Monday he will step down in December from his roles as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, and chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden.
  • “Retirement can’t shield Dr. Fauci from congressional oversight,” House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., said.
  • “Emails obtained by Oversight Committee Republicans reveal what Dr. Fauci said publicly about COVID origins was very different than what was said privately.”
  • “Dr. Fauci was warned by top scientists early on that the virus looked genetically manipulated and likely leaked from the Wuhan lab. Despite these facts, Dr. Fauci dismissed these ideas in public as conspiracy theories,” Comer said.
