HEARING ADVISORY: Dr. Anthony Fauci to Testify on June 3

WASHINGTON — Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) will hold a hearing titled “A Hearing with Dr. Anthony Fauci” on Monday, June 3, 2024. This hearing is the first time Dr. Fauci will testify publicly since retiring from public service. Earlier this year, Dr. Fauci appeared in front of the Select Subcommittee for a closed-door, two-day, 14-hour transcribed interview. Read more about Dr. Fauci’s transcribed interview here and here. The transcript from this interview will be released prior to the public hearing.

Chairman Wenstrup issued the statement below following the public announcement of Dr. Fauci’s hearing date:

Retirement from public service does not excuse Dr. Fauci from accountability to the American people. On June 3, Americans will have an opportunity to hear directly from Dr. Fauci about his role in overseeing our nation’s pandemic response, shaping pandemic-era polices, and promoting singular, questionable narratives about the origins of COVID-19. During Dr. Fauci’s closed-door interview in January, he testified to serious systemic failures in our public health system that deserve further investigation, including his testimony that the ‘6 feet apart’ social distancing guidance — which was used to shut down small businesses and schools across America — ‘sort of just appeared.’ This raises significant concerns about public health officials and the validity of their policy recommendations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We also learned that Dr. Fauci believes the lab leak hypothesis he publicly downplayed should not be dismissed as a conspiracy theory. As the face of America’s public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic, these statements raise serious questions that warrant public scrutiny. We look forward to Dr. Fauci’s forthcoming and honest testimony and appreciate his willingness to voluntarily appear before the Select Subcommittee for a public hearing,” said Chairman Wenstrup.
