Fauci Plotting Exit Strategy as Republicans Threaten Probe Following Midterms


America’s most untrusted doctor, Anthony Fauci, may be plotting his exit strategy following reports that republicans are planning in investigation after the midterms.

The GOP are already considering their options into investigating Fauci, as well as the Biden Administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Senator Rand Paul, Fauci’s worst nightmare, is leading the charge:

“One way or another, if we are in the majority, we will subpoena his records and he will testify in the Senate under oath,” said Paul.

Paul and several other republicans have remained steadfast in opposing Fauci, who has lied to the American public on several occasions.

Here’s that latest on the potential republican-led Fauci probe from the Hill:

Congressional Republicans are eagerly floating investigations into Anthony Fauci and the Biden administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic if they win back control of the House or Senate in the midterm elections.

“One way or another, if we are in the majority, we will subpoena his records and he will testify in the Senate under oath,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who is in line to become the chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee if Republicans win the majority with the panel’s current ranking member, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), retiring.

Republicans have not been shy about launching probes into the U.S. response to the coronavirus pandemic, focusing on the origins of the virus and whether the federal government — and by extension, Fauci — helped fund controversial research that might have played a role in its creation.

While Republicans have been in the minority, those investigations have not gained much momentum. But with the majority, the GOP would have the authority to lob subpoenas at the administration to force it to hand over documents.

“If we win in November, if I’m chairman of a committee, if I have subpoena power, we’ll go after every one of [Fauci’s] records,” Paul said earlier this year.

Fauci might already see the writing on the wall.

reports are he’s already planning his departure before republicans take back Congress.

More on that from the Post Millennial:

In an article published Monday, Politico announced that Dr. Anthony Fauci is “plotting his departure” from both his roles as Chief Medical Advisor to the President and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a role he’s held since 1984.

The 81-year-old whom Politico calls a “disease fighter” also said he “wants to put Covid’s politicization behind him.” In a November 2021 interview with Face the Nation’s Margaret Brennan, Fauci publicly called Republicans “liars,” invoked January 6, and said, “if you’re attacking me, you’re really attacking science.”

Fauci also said he’s “prepared for the onslaught of attacks that could come in a Republican-controlled House or Senate next year.”

Republican calls for accountability from Dr. Fauci grew in 2021 amongst calls for his removal. Republican Representative Guy Reschentaler from Pennsylvania said it was because the doctor was “wrong over and over again.”

Fauci admitted last week that he plans on retiring before Biden’s current term ends.

That may be sooner than later.
