(Congress Report) – If you’re Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former head honcho of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, you should probably be sweating bullets and shaking in your boots, because Republican Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio has announced that House Republicans are currently in the process of building a case against you as a means of holding you accountable for your actions during the COVID pandemic.
According to Jack Davis of The Western Journal, Jordan conducted an interview with journalist Benny Johnson and pointed out that Congress could potentially put out a criminal referral to have Fauci prosecuted, though he did reveal that it might not be acted on.
The Ohio congressman asserted that there “could be a referral, but you would refer it to the Biden Justice Department. I don’t know that — they’re going to pursue that, but you can definitely do that.”
“We could do a referral potentially. I would, frankly, prefer just to have Dr. Fauci come back in and take another round of questions here, but we’re building the case,” he remarked.
He added that House Republicans are “laying the foundation.”
“I do think Dr. Fauci and the CDC changed the definition of gain-of-function research, so that Fauci has, like, this wiggle room, but they were juicing up this virus, no doubt about it, juicing up this virus,” he went on to say during the interview.
In an interview that took place over the weekend, Fauci scornfully mocked the individuals who are calling for him to be prosecuted, a piece from Newsweek revealed.
“There’s no response to that craziness. Prosecute me for what? What are they talking about?” the doctor asked.
“I wish I could figure out what the heck they’re talking about. I think they’re just going off the deep end. It just doesn’t make any sense to say something like that, and it actually is irresponsible. The rest of it is just insanity, the things they’re saying. But it does have a negative effect when people take it seriously and take it out on you and your family,” Fauci declared.
There have been more than a few individuals who have demanded that Fauci be brought in and prosecuted for telling big whoppers before Congress, including Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz.
“There has been no person who has done more to destroy trust in the scientific and medical community than Dr. Anthony Fauci, who told millions of Americans lies willingly, knowingly, glibly, supremely arrogantly,” Cruz went on to say. “Should there be accountability? In any sane system he would be prosecuted for lying under oath, and he would go to jail for lying under oath to Congress.”
Jordan stated that Fauci has been an important instrument in covering up the origin of the virus that ripped through the world several years ago, as per the Washington Examiner.
“During Wednesday’s hearing of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, Jordan noted that Fauci tried to direct attention away from the theory that the coronavirus leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, that Fauci helped fund,” Davis wrote in his report.
“If it may have been a lab, may have been nature, and we’re supposed to look for it, then why did Dr. Fauci work so hard for just one of those theories? Why was it so important to push one over the other?” Jordan stated, returning the mockery contained in Fauci’s statements that the origin might never be determined.
“Three years ago, if you thought it came from a lab, if you raised that, you were called a nutjob, you got censored on Twitter, you were blacklisted on Twitter, you were even called a crackpot by the very scientist who in late January sent emails to Dr. Fauci that said it came from a lab,” he commented during the interview.
Jordan then pointed out the role an $8.9 million federal grant played in shutting down two early voices who divulged that the virus looked like it had been engineered rather than natural.
“So, three days after they say it came from a lab, they change their position, and the only intervening event is a conference call with Dr. Fauci and Dr. [Francis] Collins,” the Ohio Republican then noted, later going on to add, “And then three months later — shazam! They get $9 million bucks from Dr. Fauci. Now isn’t that something?”
