Fauci to Testify before Congress for First Time since Retirement

Anthony Fauci will enter the spotlight again in June when he testifies before congressional lawmakers for the first time since he retired from his federal government positions in late 2022.

Fauci has been called to provide testimony to Congress about the origins of the Covid pandemic and his role in crafting the public health response.

Throughout the pandemic, Fauci became the face of the government’s polarizing public health response.

He oversaw policies that included tyrannical lockdowns and mask and vaccine mandates.

Fauci’s ties to coronavirus research in China have also led to accusations that he helped cover up a speculated laboratory outbreak.

Fauci will testify to the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic on June 3.

The panel’s Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) said Fauci still has questions to answer about his role in managing the pandemic.

As Wenstrup notes, Fauci was also instrumental in shaping the public narrative about Covid’s origins.

“Retirement from public service does not excuse Dr. Fauci from accountability to the American people,” Wenstrup said in a statement.

“On June 3, Americans will have an opportunity to hear directly from Dr. Fauci about his role in overseeing our nation’s pandemic response, shaping pandemic-era policies, and promoting singular questionable narratives about the origins of COVID-19,” he added.

Covid is a dark chapter that many would rather forget.

However, some argue that a reckoning is needed to ensure that public health officials who misled the people face consequences.

Fauci tops the list of those seeking accountability.

At the height of the pandemic, Fauci was a pervasive presence in Americans’ lives.

He was seen by some, particularly those of the Left, as a benevolent public servant and a trusted authority on science.

However, he was viewed by many others as a capricious, tyrannical figure who prescribed heavy-handed and pseudoscientific measures.

As former head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci also authorized grant funding for controversial coronavirus research in Wuhan, China.

Many believe the biolab’s research led to the outbreak of the pandemic.

Fauci insisted throughout the pandemic that COVID-19 had a natural origin.

He told Congress during one hearing that it was “molecularly impossible” for the virus to be manmade.

More recently, Fauci admitted in a closed-door interview in January that the lab origin theory is not a “conspiracy.”

During the same interview, Fauci conceded that the “six feet apart” rule – that turned society upside down – was devised arbitrarily and had no basis in science.

Or, as Fauci put it, the rule “sort of just appeared.”
