Rep. McCormick: Evidence Shows Fauci Lied to Congress

Rep. Rich McCormick, a Republican from Georgia, told Newsmax that he holds the belief that Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former head of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, misled Congress regarding government funding at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.

“I do believe on the evidence that we’ve seen that he has lied to Congress,” McCormick conveyed during an interview on “The Record With Greta Van Susteren” with guest host Tom Basile.

Fauci, who served as President Joe Biden’s top adviser on the pandemic from 2021 to 2022, testified before Congress in May 2021 that the National Institutes of Health, including the NIAID, did not support gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Gain-of-function research, as defined by the NIH, involves experiments aimed at enhancing the transmissibility and/or virulence of pathogens.

However, Fauci’s testimony was contradicted on Thursday by NIH Principal Deputy Director Lawrence Tabak during a hearing of the House Oversight Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, in which McCormick participates. Tabak stated that the NIH did indeed fund gain-of-function research through EcoHealth Alliance at the Wuhan lab, where many suspect the coronavirus originated.

McCormick expressed his eagerness to question Fauci, 83, who is scheduled to testify on June 3 before the subcommittee, regarding Tabak’s testimony and other evidence related to the Wuhan lab and government funding.

“We’ll try to … [find out] why he’s mincing words, why he’s trying to deny what the definition of gain of function is,” McCormick stated. “We’ll basically nail him down to all the things he said, all the emails have been released since that time, the tens of thousands of pages of emails that I don’t think he ever thought would come out that they were using in their civilian accounts that we can now have access to and actually expose the truth.”

Dr. David Morens, a top adviser to Fauci at the NIAID, is scheduled to testify before the select subcommittee on May 22 about new evidence suggesting he intentionally impeded the subcommittee’s inquiries into the origins of COVID-19 to shield his former superior.

Emails obtained by the subcommittee reportedly show that Daszak advised Morens’ legal team on tactics to postpone Morens’ public testimony until after Fauci’s hearing.

In an email dated April 20, Daszak wrote, “Each day of delay helps. They’re trying to book David in for a public hearing between mine [May 1] and Fauci’s [June 3]. David’s lawyers are trying to negotiate and delay his til after Tony.”

Two days later, Morens’ attorney informed subcommittee staff that Morens was “unavailable” for a public hearing on May 7, providing four alternative dates, “all of which Dr. Morens and his team seemingly understood to be unacceptable given the public Congressional and Select Subcommittee schedule,” according to the subcommittee’s news release.

During the Trump administration in 2020, government funding to EcoHealth Alliance was suspended, but this decision was reversed under Biden’s presidency.

On Wednesday, Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services once again suspended funding for EcoHealth Alliance, citing issues with EcoHealth’s oversight of work conducted at the Wuhan lab, the delayed submission of a progress report, and concerns that a risky experiment may have violated the terms of a grant.
