G.O.P. Investigating Fauci if It Retakes House in 2022

“He’s missing right now for one reason.”

QUICK FACTS:
  • Several Republican lawmakers indicated that if the GOP regains a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm elections, they plan to open investigations on White House COVID-19 adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, The Epoch Times reports.
  • “When are we going to have accountability for Anthony Fauci?” Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) said on Fox News over the weekend.
  • “Look, he’s missing right now for one reason, and one reason only: The Democrats are looking at the polls.”
WHAT ELSE ROY SAID:

“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,” said Roy.

“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.”

BACKGROUND:
  • Rep. Roy’s remark came just a few days after Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, confirmed to Just The News that the GOP will attempt to investigate Fauci and other federal health officials over how they responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to The Epoch Times.
  • Roy’s remark came just a few days after Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, confirmed to Just The News that the GOP will attempt to investigate Fauci and other federal health officials over how they responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • “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, referring to “gain-of-function,” a controversial form of research that alters an organism in a way that may enhance biological functions such as altered transmissibility, pathogenesis, and host range.
