White House Blocks Dems Attempt To Drag Dr, Fauci To Testify Before Congress

The Hill reports that the White House has blocked Dr. Anthony Fauci from testifying before an influential subcommittee of the House Appropriations Committee to discuss aspects of the Trump Administration’s handling of the response to the pandemic.

Last time he appeared before Congress back in March, Dr. Fauci described the failure to test more thoroughly during the early days of the outbreak was “a failing”. This sparked rumors about a falling-out between Trump and the good doctor.

House Democrats seeking Anthony Fauci’s testimony next week on the coronavirus crisis have been rebuffed by the White House, which is blocking the nation’s top infectious disease expert from appearing before Congress.

Democrats had invited Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House coronavirus task force, to appear before an Appropriations subcommittee examining the Trump administration’s response to the global pandemic, which has killed more than 60,000 people in the United States alone.

Evan Hollander, a spokesman for the panel, said Friday that Democrats “have been informed by an administration official that the White House has blocked Dr. Fauci from testifying.”

Moments later, the White House said it would be “counter-productive” to have officials involved in efforts to defeat the novel coronavirus testify at congressional hearings at this time but that the administration would work with Congress to make them available at the appropriate time.

“While the Trump Administration continues its whole-of-government response to COVID-19, including safely opening up America again and expediting vaccine development, it is counter-productive to have the very individuals involved in those efforts appearing at Congressional hearings,” White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere said in a statement. “We are committed to working with Congress to offer testimony at the appropriate time.”

Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx have rebuffed the media’s attempts to portray them as the lone voices of reason trapped by the whims of a unstable leader who doesn’t value scientific input. But we have no doubt that the White House’s decision will only stoke the Dems’ outrage and elicit even more of these types of accusations.

  1. ARE THE DEM ASSES EVER GOING TO GET OFF THEIR NEGATIVE STENCH TO DO ANYTHING FOR ANY BENEFIT IN THE U.S.A. ? For 11 years of supporting bo and hilary treason to create their own wannabe dictatorship the dems have done absolutely “0” & became a #1 U.S. enemy trying to create their islam socialistic, commie, abused power to destroy U.S. Constitutional Freedom & Rights ! A treasonous coup created by dem leaders is their crime & execution is their over due justice ! Hang ’em as public examples !

  2. Maybe we will see some of these negative demonrats voted out of office in November, and the taxpayers can have a break from all the endless investigations. I for one (conservative-minded taxpayer), would really love to see my hard-earned dollars put to better use than the stupid demonrats’ war on Christianity, and conservatives in general. Everything they do is to promote secular Socialism, with wannabe kings and elitists in command of all of us ‘serfs’; who always believed in working for a living.

    I think the “COVID-19” panic pandemic was (and still is) nonsense and based on lies; mostly because of what the demonrats have done since Trump was elected. It was just another tool to be used by our corrupt CIA and FBI.

    The U.S. has NEVER shut down for any ‘pandemic’ before. The evil demonrat minions (Clapper, Brennen) discovered the info about it, and designed a plan to use the fear against Trump.

    The evidence is everywhere, and more and more about the Wuhan virus is coming to light that it is nowhere near as bad as first thought (promoted). It really WAS a hoax.

    All the ‘concerned government’ needed to do was INFORM the citizens of the potential outbreak; just like they did in ALL prior outbreaks. (But it was a chance to do an experiment on the people, to see just how compliant we would be.)

    We haven’t lost any more citizens to this outbreak, per-capita, than Sweden, who did not ruin their economy over it. Our current losses are proving to be less than 0.02%, the more testing is tabulated; STILL less-than the NORMAL flue season.

    Hopefully the CDC will be more observant of recorded “outbreaks” and produce a better option for the people next year.
    Nah; too much money to be made . . .

    I think it’s time to quarantine Fauci and Brix.

  3. hussein and hussein 1.0 (who lost even do to comey and strozk’s failure to convict her of treason) are still committed to impeaching OUR duly elected President during his first term. But the day is coming soon that they will rue the day that they committed these crimes. With U.S. A.G. W. Barr and John Durham having uncovered FBI written notes of how they intended to “get” (General Flynn with operation crossfire razor), many in the swamp will have their day of reckoning coming in the very near future. And as many know from some of the records with new ones coming in fast and furious that these operations came directly from the top meaning hussein.

  4. Dr Faucet needs to be kicked out Check out how many cases of the plain old flu we had and they have a vaccine for it. Well all this hey di was the democraps work just to try and rid us if one of the most fantastic presidents we have ever had. Vote for TRUMP
