US Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) is calling on Dr. Anthony Fauci to resign from his government position after the controversy sparked by the release of emails from the government’s top immunologist regarding the coronavirus pandemic. Hawley is also asking for an investigation into the origins of COVID-19.
On Friday, Hawley took to social media to mention the revelations from Fauci’s released emails.
“Anthony Fauci’s recently released emails and investigative reporting about #COVID19 origins are shocking,” and he called for him to step down as the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). “The time has come for Fauci to resign and for a full congressional investigation into the origins of #COVID19 – and into any and all efforts to prevent a full accounting.”
Over 3 million people died worldwide from COVID-19 and it’s starting to look like Fauci funded the research and was involved with others in the federal government to cover it up.
Hawley followed up with another tweet.
“The public deserves to know if persons within the US govt tried to stop a full investigation into #COVID origins, as recently reported,” the Republican Senator of Missouri said. “And Congress must also find out to what extent Fauci’s NIAID was involved in financing research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

More than 3,000 pages of Fauci’s emails were released to the public through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the Washington Post and BuzzFeed News. There are multiple concerns regarding the emails, including Fauci’s opposition to wearing face masks when the COVID-19 pandemic started and the fact that he told us that there was no need to worry about the virus.
We reported yesterday on major concerns of whether Fauci was involved in a cover-up of money funneled by Fauci through a nonprofit group called EcoHealth Alliance to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, money that was possibly used for gain-of-function research that created the COVID-19 virus that may have possibly escaped from the Wuhan lab. It just always looks nefarious when third parties are used to transfer money. Think Hillary Clinton and the Steele dossier.
Hawley is demanding a full congressional investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 virus. On one of his infamous flip flops, Fauci had originally dismissed the lab leak theory and the idea that the virus was created by man through gain-of-function engineering, saying that it naturally evolved. But then the flop from that flip occurred in late May when Fauci reversed course and said there should be an investigation into the COVID-19 virus’s origins and he finally acknowledged that the pandemic virus was leaked from the Wuhan lab, making Donald Trump right from the very beginning. Remember how everyone called Trump a racist for saying that the virus came from China? Remember how leftists and their media went bonkers over Trump calling it the China virus calling Trump a racist?
Fauci, if nothing else, is a survivor of the worst kind. He will do and say anything to keep the power that he loves, and so now, after completely dismissing the lab leak theory, has said of the virus evolving naturally, “No, I’m not convinced about that. I think that we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we find out to the best of our ability exactly what happened.”
The most disturbing part of the released emails, at least for me, was the email from Mark Zuckerberg to Dr. Fauci with a section of it that started with “Finally” and the rest was entirely redacted. When information is redacted they have to give a reason and the reason they face for Zuckerberg’s email redactions fell under trade secrets. What exactly was Zuckerberg offering to do for Fauci?
Fox News host of the show “The Ingraham Angle” Laura Ingraham tweeted out the correspondence.
“What’s the offer Zuckerberg made to Fauci? The redaction references ‘trade secrets.’ Must be challenged.”

Remember later, Facebook pulled a live feed of medical doctors around the world discussing the use of hydroxychloroquine and how they were treating their patients with it with great success. Facebook labeled it misinformation or whatever line they were using at the time to get rid of anything that didn’t fit the let’s blame Trump for COVID narrative. These were real medical doctors simply having a discussion about an effective treatment for the pandemic virus. Fake News wrote stories about the incident claiming Facebook took down the video labeling it a false cure for coronavirus that was touted by Trump. I wonder if they ever spoke to any of the millions of people worldwide who were helped by the drug? Probably not.
Others have called for an investigation into the origins of coronavirus, including 18 high-profile scientists who published a letter asking for an inquiry to “determine the origin of the pandemic,” noting that “theories of accidental release from a lab and zoonotic spillover both remain viable.”
“Knowing how COVID-19 emerged is critical for informing global strategies to mitigate the risk of future outbreaks,” the scientists proclaimed.
House Republicans, 209 of them, are calling for a congressional investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 virus and they want to know if the Chinese government tried to cover it up.
Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), the top Republican on the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) demanding a probe.
“We request that you instruct the appropriate Democrat committee chairs to immediately join Republican calls to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for its role in causing the global COVID-19 pandemic,” the letter reads. “There is mounting evidence the pandemic started in a Chinese lab, and the CCP covered it up. If that is the case, the CCP is responsible for the deaths of almost 600,000 Americans and millions more worldwide.”
Don’t hold your breath because Pelosi will do nothing unless the Democrats can figure a way to cover it up for Fauci or to blame Donald Trump.

I believe the whole thing was done to get rid of Trump in the 2020 election, but I’m a cynic.
