Republicans Want Questions Surrounding High-Risk Coronavirus Research Answered

Dr. evaded Kansas Sen. ’s questions at a recent U.S. Senate Health Committee hearing thanks in no small part to the mainstream media.

Earlier in January, a exposé exposed a DARPA report about gain-of-function research that contradicted Fauci’s prior testimony before congress. (RELATED: Project Veritas Exposé Contradicts Fauci’s Testimony)

At a Senate hearing in May, Fauci testified under oath that the National Institute of Health (NIH) “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

Though the media doesn’t hold Fauci accountable, Marshall’s questions from last Tuesday’s questions remain foremost in the minds of many congressional Republicans. (RELATED: Fauci Cleared of Hatch Act Violation Days Before 2020 Election)

As RedState reports:

Six members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and CDC Director Walensky with a list of questions they’d like answers to. Madison Cawthorn, Bill Posey, Diana Harshbarger, Lisa McClain, Randy Weber, and  signed the letter, and didn’t specify from whom the answers to these questions should come, just that they demand answers.

Sen. (R-WI) is also demanding answers. He sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin with a list of questions and a couple of requests, but his first paragraph adds a little information to what came out Monday night. Many have wondered what happened once Maj. Joseph Murphy’s report was received by the DoD’s Office of the Inspector General. Johnson writes:

According to the document, Major Murphy sent the disclosure to the Department of Defense (DoD) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for investigation. It is my understanding that the disclosure was subsequently referred by the DoD OIG to the DoD’s Research and Engineering office for further investigation.
