Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former chief White House medical adviser, is set to testify before Congress next year regarding the origins of COVID-19 and the United States’ response to the pandemic.

It is part of a long-standing investigation by Republicans into these matters. Dr. Fauci, who retired last year after serving as the nation’s top infectious disease expert, will engage in transcribed interviews in January, followed by a public hearing at a later date. This will mark his first appearance before the Republican-controlled House.

The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic initially requested Fauci’s presence in February, but a recent agreement with his attorneys has finalized the timing and details of the interviews.

Representative Brad Wenstrup, the GOP chairman of the committee, states that it is time for Dr. Fauci to address the controversies surrounding the pandemic. House Republicans have explored whether Fauci or other U.S. government officials participated in a cover-up regarding the virus’s origin.

However, Fauci has consistently dismissed these criticisms from the GOP. Wenstrup, who serves as a member of the House Intelligence Committee, has accused Fauci and U.S. intelligence of withholding crucial information concerning the investigation.

In a staff report released last year, Republicans on the committee suggested that the virus might have been developed as a bioweapon within China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology.

This contradicts the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment, which states that the virus was unlikely to be a bioweapon but may have resulted from a lab accident.

Fauci, along with numerous scientists, including those who worked under the Biden administration, believes that the virus emerged naturally and transferred from animals to humans.

There has been no significant new scientific evidence supporting the lab-leak hypothesis. However, Republicans have accused Fauci of misleading Congress when he denied funding “gain of function” research at the Wuhan lab. Senator Ted Cruz has even called for a special prosecutor to investigate Fauci’s statements.
