The revelations that Dr. Anthony Fauci may have lied about his participation in a February 2020 conference call about the origins of COVID-19 have raised serious concerns among House Republicans.
The Coronavirus Pandemic Select Subcommittee has released documents that suggest Fauci was in charge of deciding who was and who was not on the call, despite his repeated denials that he had any say in the matter.
The former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director, Robert Redfield, told the committee earlier this month that he was excluded from the conference call by Fauci.
This has led to speculation that Fauci excluded Redfield because he wanted to investigate the theory that the virus may have originated in a lab.
Fauci has denied any involvement in excluding Redfield from the call and has also denied any involvement in deciding who participated in the call. However, the committee has released emails that suggest Fauci may have played a larger role in the call than he has claimed.
These developments have raised serious concerns about Fauci’s credibility and leadership, as well as public trust in him.
If it is found that Fauci did indeed lie about his involvement in the conference call, it could have serious implications for the ongoing efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is clear that House Republicans are taking this matter seriously and are determined to get to the bottom of what happened.
The committee has requested that Fauci produce all documents and communications related to the conference call, and it remains to be seen how this situation will develop.
