Republicans Vow To Investigate Fauci Amid His Suspicious Retirement

Bad News for FAUCI – Retirement Won’t Save Him!

(RepublicanDaily.org) – President Biden’s controversial chief medical advisor has just announced his resignation — but Republican lawmakers insist that won’t get him off the hook for his performance during the COVID pandemic. If the GOP regains control of Congress after November’s midterm elections, Fauci could face an uncomfortable time as he’s asked to explain exactly what he knew about the origins of the Wuhan virus.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has been saying for months that he’ll quit his government jobs at the end of Biden’s term, but on August 22, he moved that date forward and announced that he plans to step down in December. The Republican response was swift. Almost immediately, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) tweeted that Fauci’s departure “will not prevent a full-throated investigation into the origins of the pandemic.”

Paul has been a long-standing critic of Fauci’s vagueness about the origins of the disease, especially his insistence that the virus likely escaped from a Chinese laboratory were “conspiracy theories.” He and other Republicans have also criticized Fauci’s enthusiasm for mask mandates, after initially saying that masks didn’t work, and his scaremongering about fatality rates. Now, backed up by Representative James Comer (R-KY), he wants Fauci to tell Congress exactly what he knew about COVID’s unexpected appearance and rapid spread — and he’s not going to let him wriggle out of it by retiring.
