(Natural News) Leading Republican politicians and other conservative figures are calling on White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci to resign or be fired by the administration of President Joe Biden.
People are calling on Fauci’s resignation or firing after his emails were released through Freedom of Information Act requests. The emails revealed his changing recommendations regarding the use of face masks and his early dismissal of the lab leak theory. This theory argues that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) was engineered in a lab in China, where it leaked after infecting an employee.
Additionally, these figures want Fauci to step down following revelations that the National Institutes of Health sent grant funding to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
“Fauci needs to step down,” said Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn during an appearance on Fox News.
“The Biden administration should ask him to step away from his post,” she added. Her colleagues in the Senate, Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, have also called for Fauci to be removed from his post as Chief Medical Advisor to Biden and as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
“For 16 months we have seen Dr. Fauci withhold information, dismiss plausible explanations of COVID’s origin and outright lie to Congress,” said Rubio during a different interview on Fox News. “He is supposed to be a fact-based public health official, not a pundit distorting the truth to conform with his personal judgment.”
