Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak, one man has been front and center when it comes to addressing the nation, and that man is Anthony Fauci. Fauci has since become a very respected man across the country, which is likely something that Donald Trump resents. See, The Donald can only get deplorables to back him, and he’s just aching to get some decent followers.
House Democrats announced a probe into Trump’s handling of the coronavirus relief effort after stories were published left and right about things that were happening, like the national stockpile somehow being depleted just weeks into a pandemic, and states being left to fend for themselves for protective gear.
Dr Fauci should resign immediately and testify next week.
This is about lives and no one should stand in the way of transparency.
The American people deserve the truth.
Dr Fauci should also request whistleblower protection.

Now, the White House has announced that Trump will not be allowing Anthony Fauci to testify about the relief effort.
Trump has something to hide.
We’ve seen this before, folks, and just like the last time, this means that there are some serious wrongdoings happening at the highest level of government, and Trump knows that if he keeps fighting, eventually Democrats will lose.
Free Dr. Fauci! By subpoena if necessary. https://t.co/zUL2yxKi0Y

Fauci was invited Wednesday to speak before the Appropriations subcommittee. Spokesperson said Friday that Dems “have been informed by an administration official that the White House has blocked Dr. Fauci from testifying.”
The White House released the following statement:
“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. We are committed to working with Congress to offer testimony at the appropriate time.”
BREAKING: The White House just blocked Dr. Fauci from testifying in front of Congress next week. Because they want to cover up how catastrophic Trump’s coronavirus response was, leading us to over a million sick and 65,600+ dead. This is pathetic obstruction. We demand answers.
