Republicans promise to investigate White House medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci if they win back control of at least one chamber of Congress in November’s midterm elections.
The promise was made by Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul, according to The Conservative Brief. Paul, himself a medical doctor, has had many conflicts with Fauci over COVID protocols and the origins of the virus.
Paul went on to say that they would o subpoena Fauci’s records as part of their investigation if his upper chamber of congress is taken by Republicans, and he becomes the chairman of a committee with subpoena power.
“If we win in November, if I’m chairman of a committee, if I have subpoena power, we’ll go after every one of [Fauci’s] records,” Paul said. “We’ll have an investigator go through this piece-by-piece because we don’t need this to happen again.”
The Kentucky Republican praised a recent judicial order that overturned the executive order that mandated masks on planes, trains, and other forms of public transit.
Paul was backed by Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan who made similar claims just weeks ago, saying Republicans will “uncover” what Fauci actually knew about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Republican Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, an ally to Jordan, released Fauci’s financial records. The records appear to show that Fauci and his wife have a combined net worth of around $10 million,” Tdhe Daily Wire reported.
Following the realization that Fauci and his wife were paid tens of thousands of dollars to attend four galas and ceremonies — three of them virtual — during the pandemic, Jordan agreed that such revelations, and other emails, need to be investigated.
“If the American people put us back in charge, we are definitely going to do this,” Jordan said, adding that his colleagues would push for a congressional investigation into the origins of the coronavirus.
“Because we now know without a doubt that Dr. Fauci knew on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 that this thing came from a lab,” Jordan argued. “The top scientists in the country were saying it came from a lab. One scientist says we got the notes now from the conference call on February 1st. One scientist says, ‘I don’t see how this can happen in nature, but it would be easy to do in a lab.’”
“And yet just in a matter of days, they changed their position, write the article that appears in Nature of Medicine Magazine, which then gets cited in the now-famous letter The Lancet, which became the gospel for the fact that Fauci can go out and tell people it didn’t come from a lab when in fact they knew it did,” Jordan continued.
“The interesting thing is. We point this out. We just learned this last week, that the two doctors who were most adamant that this thing came from a lab early on: one is Dr. Kristian Anderson. On Jan. 31, 2020, he says this to Dr. Fauci in an email: ‘Virus looks engineered. The virus not consistent with evolutionary theory.’ So, he knew it came from a lab,” he added.
