The majority of Americans say they want to see Dr. Anthony Fauci fully investigated for his handling of the pandemic and the inconsistent statements he’s made during testimonies, a new national study has revealed.
Respondents were asked if they support an investigation by Congress into Fauci’s “inconsistent testimony about his research leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic” and his “actions in managing the pandemic.”
Over 52% of respondents said “yes.”
Meanwhile, nearly 46% responded with “no.”
Just over 3% said they were “not sure.”
The responses across party lines were wildly different but still resulted in a majority in favor of such an investigation.
Just 25.5% of Democrats supported an investigation, with a resounding 70% against it.
For Republicans, the gap was even wider between the responses.
Over 80% of GOP members were supportive of Congress looking into Fauci, while just under 17% were not.
Respondents who do not identify with either major party, who made up a significant portion of those surveyed (25.1%), were still in favor of an investigation by a majority of 56%.
The majority of those surveyed were women (53.3%), and Democrats represented the largest portion of party members who participated (39.3%).
The survey was conducted between January 9 and 12, 2023.
It was approximately a week before it was revealed that Fauci made efforts to shut down theories around the origins of COVID-19.
The effort was revealed in unredacted emails between himself and the National Institutes of Health.
The NIH emails revealed that some officials thought that the Covid virus seemed to be “engineered.”
Actor-political commentator Russell Brand interviewed a whistleblower who said NIH “leadership and 2,400 of its scientists” have benefited from “$1.4 billion of these hidden, secret third-party royalties” over the past 12 years.
The whistleblower, Adam Andrzejewski, also said that the billions in grants and funding that the NIH receives each year buy a lot of influence.
He alleges that Fauci has massively benefited from public money for his own inventions.
“In 2005, the Associated Press got an unredacted database and they found that Fauci had burned down all the firewalls,” Andrzejewski said.
“He had received $45,000 of royalties for an AIDs therapeutic that he had invented.”
Fauci “had invested another $36 million of taxpayer money to enhance his invention,” he added.
“And once this was exposed, he said he would donate his royalties to charity.”
