On Friday, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) called on White House senior medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci to resign after recently released emails suggest that Fauci has misled the American public throughout the pandemic.

“Anthony Fauci’s recently released emails and investigative reporting about #COVID19 origins are shocking. 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,” Hawley tweeted.

“The public deserves to know if persons within the US govt tried to stop a full investigation into #COVID origins, as recently reported. And Congress must also find out to what extent Fauci’s NIAID was involved in financing research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Hawley added.

The emails reveal that Fauci was warned as far back as January 2020 that COVID-19 had “unusual features” and “looks engineered,” but he repeatedly told the American public that COVID-19 originated naturally and that it was “totally consistent” with natural evolution.

In March 2020, Fauci also received an email from an expert “modeling this outbreak since January,” who warned, “I’m confident that China stop counting dead COVID-19 infected bodies since ~January 7, 2020. They’ve been adding fabricated data daily to show (to save face) the world and their own people an impressive flattening of China outbreak curve.” Fauci forwarded the email, writing “too long for me to read.”

According to Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), “These emails show that Dr. Fauci coordinated with one of the Wuhan Lab’s funders to cover-up the plausible notion that the virus could have come from inside the lab. Dr. Fauci needs to stop playing games and answer questions about his role in funding the very lab that may have unleashed this pandemic on the world.”
