If Fauci hoped that his bad week was about to end, he got another (bad) surprise!
Right now, GOP is going after him with the fire of a thousand suns!
Namely, Jim Jordan is leading the charge to get to the bottom of what happened with Dr. Ghoul and his spine-chilling “gain of function” research obsession.
The Fauci nightmare puzzle is finally coming together!
According to Daily Caller, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan and Wisconsin Rep. Mike Gallagher launched a congressional investigation Wednesday into the lack of federal oversight of gain-of-function experiments that set out to make dangerous pathogens more transmissible.
Their letter was addressed to Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Senior Science Advisor David “Chris” Hassell, who, during a January 2020 event, admitted that there are flaws with the way his department oversees gain-of-function research.
Hassell is the only known board member of the HHS Potential Pandemic Pathogens Control and Oversight (P3CO) review committee, formed in late 2017 after a three-year pause on government funding of gain-of-function research to provide additional federal oversight into such experiments.
Yet, Hassell’s review committee wasn’t even notified of a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant with the nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance that included the modification of bat-based coronaviruses and the transfer of $600,000 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) before the pandemic.
Moreover, the piece adds that Jordan and Gallagher’s letter asked Hassell to address the “definition issues” he mentioned during his January 2020 talk.
Plus, they demanded Hassell to confirm whether he believes the EcoHealth grant should have been reviewed by his oversight committee.
The Republican lawmakers also asked Hassell to describe his communications with Fauci, as well as any communications linked to the NIAID’s grant with EcoHealth which included subgrants to the WIV.
This came after Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and five other Republican senators sent a letter to NIH Director Francis Collins on May 20 asking why his agency didn’t forward the EcoHealth grant for P3CO review.
The GOP is now well aware of the fact that the smoke billowing around Fauci proves there’s a fire burning!
Yet, we all knew this all this time, and President Trump alluded to all of this before *and after* he was removed from office.
Although the GOP taking down Fauci now is good news, one cannot avoid wondering where they were 6 months, or a year ago, as they clearly had the info.
Therefore, the GOP are not heroes for doing their job, and they are even less praise-worthy because they should have been done months ago.
