National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci has become the new target for Democrats.
House Democrats desperately want Fauci to testify about President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, but the president officially said a few days ago that he is blocking that.
When asked about his decision on Tuesday, the president told a group of reporters that it’s nothing but a trap from Democrats to pick apart Fauci’s words to attack him.
“The House is a setup. The House is a bunch of Trump-haters,” Trump said.
He continued, “They put every Trump hater on the committee, the same old stuff. They frankly want our situation to be unsuccessful, which means death. … The House has put on an oversight committee Maxine Waters and Maloney, the same people, and it’s just a setup.”
While Trump has blocked Fauci from testifying before the House, he did say that, “Dr. Fauci will be testifying in front of the Senate, and he looks forward to doing that.”
“The House, I will tell you, they should be ashamed of themselves. And frankly, the Democrats should be ashamed. Because they want us to fail so they can win an election, which they’re not going to win,” Trump added.
his has already been quite the week for Fauci.
On Monday, Judicial Watch announced that it filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit on behalf of the Daily Caller News Foundation against the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services for communications between Fauci and Deputy Director H. Clifford Lane with and about the World Health Organization (WHO) concerning the coronavirus.
In other words, they want to know if there’s anything suspicious or concerning that Fauci has been told or said to WHO, the organization that President Donald Trump has been railing against lately for, as he argues, covering for China.
