Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s push to terminate Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), is gaining some traction in the House among her Republican colleagues.
Greene has been a vocal critic of Fauci and introduced the Fire Fauci Act in May, a bill that would reduce his salary to $0. The release of thousands of pages of Fauci’s emails only increased Republican criticism of the infectious disease expert and in the weeks since they were published, more House Republicans signed onto Greene’s bill.
MARJORIE TAYLOR GREENE AND ‘FIRE FAUCI ACT’: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who has expressed sympathetic views towards the QAnon conspiracy theory and has recently compared a Capitol HIll mask and vaccine mandate to the atrocities of the Holocaust, holds a press conference on H.R. 2316, the Fire Fauci Act.
The bill proposes reducing the salary for director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to $0 and calls for an ‘audit of the digital correspondence, policy memoranda, and financial transactions’ of the director’s office from October 2019 to December 2021. She is joined by other pro-Trump Republicans like Rep. Matt Gaetz, Paul Gosar, and Mo Brooks.
