Republicans introduce ‘Fire Fauci Act’ to oust the ‘political scientist’ from his top job
Several Republicans – led by congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene – have introduced the “Fire Fauci Act” to oust embattled Dr Anthony Fauci from
his job as chief medical adviser to the president. “He’s a political scientist, he is not a scientist,” said RepublicanThomas Massie.
“He’s admitted that he fudged his own answers about what level would constitute herd immunity.”
Mr Massie said the US needed to “fire” Dr Fauci and called for an investigation into the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The act would reduce Dr Fauci’s annual salary as NIAID director to zero. Dr Fauci has been in the firing line for his decisions during the COVID-19 pandemic and has been accused of downplaying the origins of coronavirus.
“From his emails and much more we can see the extend of these mandates were unnecessary and not in the best interest of the American people,”
said Republican Mary Miller.
“Americans deserve to know and fully understand how COVID came to be and make sure this never happens again.”
