REPRESENTING. MIKE GALLAGHER: Fauci lied to us. He lied to Congress. He knew that our taxpayer money was being administered by his organization to third parties like EcoHealth Alliance to do cooperative research, gain-of-office research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. And when asked about it, he hid behind a highly legalistic definition, but more specifically, he was lying. And the fact that he still has a job is an affront to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have suffered if not died from the coronavirus.
I would add that we now have the 90-day intelligence review of the Biden administration, which came back with nothing. This is unacceptable. And it’s sad that we can’t get to the bottom of it until we have the cooperation of the Chinese. It’s wrong. It’s an evasion. There’s a ton of things we can do, and let’s start by subpoenaing Peter Daszak and his entire corrupt organization for answers. We cannot accept that these lies are the final answer …
At least [Dr. Anthony Fauci] should resign. We should have a full and transparent investigation to unravel the complex web of US tax dollars funding this type of research.
But, where is the responsibility of the Chinese Communist Party? Why is this administration effectively covering up the Chinese Communist Party when it comes to this? Are we so afraid of offending their delicate sensibilities that we are not going to demand answers after they perpetrate one of the biggest cover-ups in the history of geopolitical relations? It is absolutely unacceptable. And we have to get to the bottom of things …
All the media went hook and line and lead for this story that was being perpetrated … We had scientists who had deep conflicts of interest, who were writing letters telling everyone it wasn’t coming. not from a lab, and the media have opted for this. And the media have been acting like useful idiots for the Chinese Communist Party, and they are afraid to admit they were wrong.
