UPDATED 1:23 PM PT – Sunday, August 1, 2021
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) have ramped up efforts to hold the Biden administration accountable for withheld information about COVID-19. The two Republicans urged Joe Biden’s officials to release all information on Dr. Anthony Fauci’s role in Wuhan lab research.
In addition, Scott and Johnson touted subpoenas for Fauci’s unredacted emails about the gain of function research. This came after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) found Fauci’s National Institute of Health sent $600,000 per year to the Wuhan lab.
Big government has NOT been honest and transparent with America. If you think it has, why hasn’t @NIH complied with the law and released Fauci’s unredacted emails regarding his gain of function funding? The American people have the right to know how their tax dollars are spent.

Meanwhile, GOP senators suspect China could have used U.S. taxpayer money to create the virus and release it onto the U.S.
