In his speech on the House of Representatives floor today, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) criticized the actions of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, in response to comments made by former CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield. Dr. Redfield had recently suggested that a laboratory release of SARS-CoV-2 was the most likely cause of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jim Jordan just unleashed on Dr. Fauci for his role in covering up the COVID lab leak theory.

At the House of Representatives, Rep. Jordan raised concerns about Dr. Fauci's preference for one theory over another and then directed a question to Dr. Redfield. Jordan asked if Dr. Redfield had been labeled as a "crackpot" by the same scientist who had earlier suggested to Dr. Fauci that the virus originated from a lab. Dr. Redfield confirmed that he had been accused of racism for holding such beliefs.
JUST IN: Fauci's NIAID gave scientist $2M in grant money after he was pressured by Fauci to stay quiet about COVID lab theory back in January of 2020.

During his speech, Rep. Jordan highlighted the case of Kristian Andersen, a virologist from Scripps Research Institute in San Diego. According to Jordan, Andersen had suspected early on that the virus had leaked from a laboratory but kept quiet about it in early 2022. Jordan further alleged that Dr. Fauci had paid off Andersen and three other virologists for their silence on the matter. Andersen had apparently studied the genome sequence of SARS-CoV-2 and concluded that the virus was not a result of bat-borne transmission but was instead created in a laboratory.
In his address, Rep. Jordan leveled accusations against Dr. Fauci, claiming that he had attempted to conceal the possibility of a lab leak and used U.S. taxpayers' money to fund a Chinese laboratory that did not meet regulatory standards and engaged in gain-of-function research. Jordan further alleged that Dr. Fauci had disseminated misleading information and profited from his position.
It is clear that Dr. Fauci is attempting to cover up his involvement in the lab-leak theory and the potential for U.S. tax dollars to have funded a Chinese lab that was not up to code and was doing gain of function research. It is also clear that he is using his position to spread inaccurate information and make money off of it. This is yet another example of the liberal agenda attempting to deceive the American people and push their own agenda, while disregarding the truth. It is time for Dr. Fauci and other liberal elites to be held accountable for their actions and for the truth about this pandemic to be revealed.
