Dr. Anthony Fauci testified before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, claiming not to recall pertinent COVID-19 information or conversations more than 100 times.

Lawmakers described “drastic and systemic failures in America’s public health systems” during the hearing.

The committee expressed concerns about Fauci’s lack of oversight and accountability at the NIAID.

“Dr. Fauci claimed he ‘did not recall’ pertinent COVID-19 information or conversations more than 100 times” throughout the hearing, the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic wrote.

“Today, he repeatedly played semantics with the definition of gain-of-function in an attempt to avoid conceding that NIH funded this dangerous research,” they stated, noting that Fauci confessed to providing signatures on “every foreign and domestic [National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases] NIAID grant without reviewing the proposals.”

“Dr. Fauci was unable to confirm if NIAID has ANY mechanisms to conduct oversight of the foreign laboratories they fund,” the committee stated.

Subcommittee chairman Rep. Brad Wenstrup emphasized the discrepancy between public health leaders’ responsibilities and accountability.

“Clearly, the American people and the United States government are operating with completely different expectations about the responsibilities of our public health leaders and the accountability of our public health agencies,” Wenstrup said.

Wenstrup plans to question Fauci further about mandates, lockdowns, and masks during the next closed-door session.
