Republican: ‘Retirement can’t shield Dr. Fauci from congressional oversight’

Rep. James Comer (R-Kentucky), the top republican on the Oversight Committee, released the following statement after Dr. Fauci announced his intent to retire from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in December 2022.

Retirement can’t shield Dr. Fauci from congressional oversight. 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.

We need to know if Dr. Fauci concealed anything from government officials in order to shield the NIH’s cozy relationship with EcoHealth Alliance, a grantee that awarded taxpayer funds to the Wuhan lab to conduct dangerous research on bat coronaviruses. The American people deserve transparency and accountability about how government officials used their taxpayer dollars, and Oversight Committee Republicans will deliver.

  1. I pray the Republicans will step up to the plate. They , so far have done nothing to stop the spread of lies about the shots being safe. Thousands have died and been injured from the shots. The Republicans have not done enough. Senator Johnson has done more than anyone to bring out the information of how bad these shots are, but not enough Republicans are helping. What are they waiting on????Stop the propaganda of the shots being safe, stop the censorship of the truth, stop the shots!!!! Don’t wait till November! Republicans inaction now is causing more hurt and death to Aamericans. God help us.
