(Summit News) After Anthony Fauci announced that he will retire right before the mid term elections, Republicans responded by asserting that his stepping down will not deter them from investigating his role in gain of function research that potentially led to the global COVID pandemic.

“Fauci’s resignation will not prevent a full-throated investigation into the origins of the pandemic,” tweeted Senator Rand Paul, who has become Fauci’s arch nemesis through repeated questioning of Fauci’s obfuscation of the meaning of gain of function.


“He will be asked to testify under oath regarding any discussions he participated in concerning the lab leak,” Paul further noted.

Paul’s comments come a day after he told reporters “I think most of the mainstream media has kept off of the airwaves a discussion of gain-of-function research or the origins of the virus, but we will get to the bottom of this,”

“It’s going to take control of committees,” Paul further noted, adding “I’ve talked to Jim Jordan and others about investigating this. I think there’s a great deal of interest in investigating the origins of the virus. I’m very interested in it, but it depends on elections. Elections have consequences. We’ll have to see what happens in November.”

In addition to Paul, Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, released a press statement on Monday vowing to continue investigating Fauci, stating: “Retirement can’t shield Dr. Fauci from congressional oversight.”


In addition , Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), the ranking member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said in a Monday press release that, “We need answers to many questions around the government’s failed COVID-19 pandemic response, how this pandemic started, and his [Fauci’s] role in supporting taxpayer-funded risky research without proper oversight in China.”
