Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene will today introduce a new bill entitled the “Fire Fauci Act,” seeking to strip the highest-paid U.S. federal employee and COVID-19 “father” of his position as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Despite insisting upon universal mask mandates in late 2020 and 2021, Fauci infamously told Americans in March of 2020 that “people should not be walking around with masks,” adding “there’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”
His multitude of “flip flops” over the course of the pandemic, as well as his overtly partisan positioning in recent weeks has led Greene to demand his termination from the NIAID.
Dr. Fauci is closely connected with Dr. Peter Daszak, the World Health Organization inspector who recently admitted to links with the Chinese Communist Party.
Fauci has held his position since 1984. The bill would effectively cut his salary to $0 while his replacement is settled on and confirmed by the Senate. The bill would also trigger a Government Accountability Office audit into Fauci’s digital communications and financial transactions from October 1, 2019 to December 31, 2021.
In addition to Fauci’s bungled COVID-19 response, the NIAID Director is also a long-time advocate and funder of gain of function research – a scientific practice that increases the virulence and transmissibility of diseases like COVID-19. What’s more, Fauci funneled millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance group, which collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology on this form of research and also spoke repeatedly at their events.
