Missouri Senator Josh Hawley is calling for Dr. Anthony Fauci to step down and answer questions related to the emails he sent and received related to COVID-19.
Hawley is calling for a full congressional investigation into the origins of COVID-19 and to determine NAID’s involvement in funding research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
“Anthony Fauci’s recently released emails and investigative reporting about #COVID19 origins are shocking,” Hawley wrote on social media. “The time has come for Fauci to resign and for a full congressional investigation into the origins of #COVID19 – and into any and all efforts to prevent a full accounting.”
“The public deserves to know if persons within the US govt tried to stop a full investigation into #COVID origins, as recently reported,” Hawley continued. “And Congress must also find out to what extent Fauci’s NIAID was involved in financing research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
Last week, the Senate unanimously passed a bill that would declassify intelligence related to any links between the Wuhan lab and the viral pandemic.
