Defiant Fauci defends his record, dares Republicans to investigate him if party retakes Congress

A defiant Dr. Anthony S. Fauci scoffed at the idea that he could face investigations by Republicans if the party regains control of Congress in the critical midterm elections, defending his record and inviting GOP lawmakers to take their best shot.

The 81-year-old career bureaucrat who has headed up the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984 and who was recently infected with COVID has been laying low but recently resurfaced with a string of media appearances as the fear machine is revving up over Monkeypox as well as the latest variant.

On Tuesday, he showed up on CNN’s “New Day” where he spoke with host John Berman.

The primary topic was whether a declaration of a public health emergency over Monkeypox – which has been largely spread through homosexual male group sex – is in the cards but the good doctor was also asked for his reaction about the prospect of being made to testify before GOP-led committees if the Democrats get shellacked in November as most analysts are predicting.

“Senator Rand Paul – a Republican – and some Republicans are talking about what they might do if they retake the House or the Senate in the fall,” Berman inquired. “Senator Rand Paul says of the Republicans if they retake the House, ‘one way or another, if we are in the majority, we will subpoena his -your- records and he will testify in the Senate under oath,’ your reaction to Rand Paul and others saying they’re going to investigate you if they take power?”

Fauci, who has arrogantly proclaimed that he is “the science” responded, “Well, there’s no reason to do that but if they want to, go ahead.”

“My records are an open book, they are talking about things that are really bizarre John, like crimes against democracy by shutting down the government. All I have ever done, and go back and look at everything I’ve ever done, was to recommend common sense, good, CDC-recommended public health policies that have saved millions of lives,” he said.

“If you want to investigate for me for that, go ahead,” Fauci said, daring Paul and other Republicans to put him on the stand.

While Fauci was defiant about his performance during the hellish years of the COVID crisis, some sought to set the record straight including Tom Elliott of multimedia marketplace Grabien who posted the clip of the segment to Twitter.

Elliott rattled off a list of things that President Joe Biden’s top medical adviser could have to answer for including accidentally creating and then covering up COVID, engineering the destruction of civil rights with lockdowns and mandates, lying to Congress, weaponizing the government to suppress dissent, impairing the development of a generation of children, spewing conflicting advice at every state of the pandemic and using his position to profit.

Other reactions to Fauci’s CNN interview were not favorable.

Fauci’s return to regular media appearances also included an interview with The Hill’s “Rising” show where he expressed regret over there not being even more onerous lockdowns and other restrictions brought to bear against asymptomatic people in 2020 while also throwing his support behind the forced masking of children for the upcoming school year.

There is plenty to be investigated and Dr. Fauci may eventually come to regret waving a red cape in front of a charging bull.
