Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has written a formal letter to the National Institutes of Health demanding that the organization retain all of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s communications —especially those regarding COVID.
Paul says the request is to allow Congress to “conduct proper oversight.”
“In light of this announcement, I formally request you ensure the preservation of all documents and communications within Dr. Fauci’s possession related to his tenure at the National Institutes of Health (NIH),” Paul wrote shortly after Fauci’s retirement announcement.
“This information is critical to ensure that Congress has access to information necessary to conduct proper oversight regarding events that took place during Dr. Fauci’s tenure with the agency. Specifically, I request you preserve all records, e-mail, electronic documents, and data created by or shared with Dr. Fauci during his tenure at NIH that relate to COVID-19 including, but not limited to, NIAID-funded coronavirus research. This preservation request also includes all records of official business conducted on non official accounts,” he added.
Paul previously promised Fauci’s retirement would not prevent an investigation into the origins of COVID.
“Fauci’s resignation will not prevent a full-throated investigation into the origins of the pandemic. He will be asked to testify under oath regarding any discussions he participated in concerning the lab leak.”
