Jim Jordan: We’re ‘Definitely’ Investigating Fauci If Republicans Win Back The House

Representative Jim Jordan warned that Republicans will “definitely” investigate Dr. Anthony Fauci should the GOP win back the House in 2022.

Jordan addressed a possible tumultuous future for the infectious disease expert this past weekend.

“Are you going to investigate Anthony Fauci should you take the control and the majority of the House?” Fox News host Maria Bartiromo asked in an interview.

“If the American people put us back in charge, we are definitely going to do this,” vowed Jordan (R-OH).

The congressman seemed to indicate the focus of the investigation would be the government’s alleged attempts to downplay the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We now know without a doubt that Dr. Fauci knew on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 that this thing [coronavirus] came from a lab,” he explained. “The top scientists in the country were saying it came from a lab.”

Investigate Fauci

Jordan proceeded to chastise the Biden administration for their attempts to use the pandemic to increase their own power and control over the American people.

“It’s about power and control. It’s certainly not about the science, it’s certainly not about the truth. It’s certainly not about the facts. It’s about power and control,” he insisted.

Fauci, however, has insisted that any criticism of him is a criticism of science.

“If they get up and really aim their bullets at Tony Fauci,” he said of his many detractors, “well people can recognize that there’s a person there, so it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science because I represent science.”

“And it’s just one more thing that they’ve [the Biden administration] done wrong,” added Jordan. “I mean, frankly, I don’t know that they’ve done anything right.”

Who’s The Moron?

The Political Insider reported last month that the GOP had lined up at least seven potential investigations if they win back the House of Representatives in 2022.

One of the investigations listed centers on the origins of a COVID pandemic the President vowed to “shut down.”

Senator Rand Paul has accused Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases under the NIH, of having lied to Congress about U.S. funding for coronavirus research in Wuhan.

“Surprise surprise – Fauci lied again,” Paul (R-KY) said, sharing an article that showed NIH provided a “bat coronavirus grant” to a group called the EcoHealth Alliance.

“And I was right about his agency funding novel Coronavirus research at Wuhan.”

To Jordan’s point, Fauci frequently downplayed the theory that COVID could have generated from a Chinese lab.

Fauci stated that “most people hold by” the belief that the virus came from a bat in the Wuhan market rather than a lab.

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have insisted there is “significant circumstantial evidence” that the COVID-19 outbreak emanated from a Wuhan Institute of Virology leak.

The debate on the origins of the virus has still not been settled, which in itself is curious in year three of the pandemic.

Last week, Fauci referred to Republican Senator Roger Marshall as “a moron” for prodding the doctor about personal financial disclosures to Congress.

Reports at the time had surfaced that Fauci is the highest-paid federal employee.

Fauci told Marshall that his financial disclosures are public information, but the congressman suggested that ‘Big Tech’ was ‘making it difficult to access.’

“All you have to do is ask for it. You’re so misinformed, it’s extraordinary,” Fauci spat before the mic caught him muttering, “What a moron” and “Jesus Christ.”
