ICYMI: Comer Joins The Ingraham Angle, Informs Dr. Fauci that Retirement Can’t Protect Him from Congressional Oversight

WASHINGTON — House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) joined “The Ingraham Angle” with Laura Ingraham on Fox News to discuss Dr. Fauci’s announced retirement from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and why that will not help him skirt congressional oversight.

“We have a lot of questions for Dr. Fauci,” said Ranking Member Comer. “We’ve already told Dr. Fauci to preserve all of his documents and all of his emails. One thing the House Oversight Committee has already unearthed were the initial emails back in January and February of 2020 when his earliest advisors said by looking at this gene sequence, it appears that this was man-made, so it had to come from the Wuhan Lab. Dr. Fauci never told the public that there were advisors to him that said this originated in the Wuhan Lab.”

On January 11th, 2022, Ranking Member Comer and Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) called for a transcribed interview with Dr. Fauci after new information revealed he may have concealed information from government officials about the possibility of COVID-19 originating from the Wuhan Lab and the virus appearing to be genetically manipulated.
