The GOP has some things in store for Fauci that should absolutely make him very nervous! It won’t be long now before his chickens come home to roost…
This is because several GOP lawmakers have made it known that they are planning on opening investigations into Dr. Fauci if they regain a majority in the 2022 midterm elections. The seat for Fauci is going to get very hot indeed.
“When are we going to have accountability for Anthony Fauci?” Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) said on a weekend segment of Fox News.
“Look, he’s missing right now for one reason, and one reason only: The Democrats are looking at the polls.
“It wasn’t dead Americans that made Democrats move. It wasn’t dead Americans that made Fauci go away. It was polls. And I want to hold Anthony Fauci accountable.
“And if you’re watching this, Dr. Fauci, look out because when the Americans give us control in the House of Representatives, God willing, we’re going to get some answers on behalf of the American people.”
Roy’s remarks come in the wake of Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, confirming to Just the News that yes, the GOP is going to attempt to start investigations for Fauci and other health officials in regards to how they responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jordan described how the main thing that the Republican party will be looking for is whether the federal government and Fauci knew whether COVID-19 had its origins in a lab in Wuhan in the central Hubei Province of China.
“That is because they knew from the get-go [that COVID-19] … likely came from a lab, [with] gain-of-function likely done, and our tax dollars were used,” Jordan said in reference to “gain-of-function,” a controversial form of research prevalent in China that will alter that an organism in a way that may enhance biological functions such as altered transmissibility, pathogenesis, and host range.
They pressed Fauci during some of the congressional hearings last year in regards to what some said was false or misleading statements about whether the agency he represents, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), as well as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), had been steering money away from where it needed to go and to the the nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance. This group is widely known to have provided funds to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for the study of bat coronaviruses.
Last September, there were more than 900 pages of documentation purporting to show that federal money had been used by EcoHealth. This has led critics to accused Fauci of misleading congress when he told them that his agency had never funded any gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Lab.
It was the following October that Lawrence Tabak, then the principal deputy director for the NIH, said that the EcoHealth organization provided a five-year report on bat coronavirus research under a grant from his own organization. They found that “in this limited experiment, laboratory mice infected with the SHC014 WIV1 bat coronavirus became sicker than those infected with the WIV1 bat coronavirus.”
Fauci told Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) during an early 2021 hearing that he “never lied before the Congress” and that the NIH didn’t fund the research.
“You do not know what you’re talking about, quite frankly,” he told Paul at the time.
It was also late October that Fauci told ABC News that he continued to insist that the NIH didn’t fund gain-of-function research.
“The framework under which we have guidance about the conduct of research that we fund, the funding at the Wuhan Institute was to be able to determine what is out there in the environment, in bat viruses in China,” Fauci said. “And the research was very strictly under what we call a framework of oversight of the type of research. And under those conditions which we have explained very, very clearly, does not constitute research of gain of function of concern.”
