On Friday, Dr. Anthony Fauci the top US infectious disease expert has hinted at his retirement from the position that he held for nearly four decades.
During the ABC podcast interview, the 81-year-old Fauci responded after being asked if he had any thoughts about retiring or potentially shifting to a lesser role within the government.
Fauci answered, “I have said that I would stay in what I’m doing until we get out of the pandemic phase, and I think we might be there already if we can stay in this.”
Fauci has served as the public health expert in various capacities for more than 50 years and has advised every president since Ronald Reagan. And during the current administration, he’s holding now the position as the post of chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden and has been facing the public ever since the pandemic began.
”I can’t stay at this job forever. Unless my staff is going to find me slumped over my desk one day. I’d rather not do that,”
“I, unfortunately, am somewhat of a unidimensional physician-scientist-public health person. When I do decide I’m going to step down — whenever that is — I’m going to have to figure out what I’m going to do. I’d love to spend more time with my wife and family that would be nice.”
His answer is quite different from what he answered way back in November last year when he was asked the same question where he said that he would not leave his post until Covid is “in the rearview mirror,” while he claimed that he, himself, is the embodiment of sCiEnCe.
“I have said that I would stay in what I’m doing until we get out of the pandemic phase, and I think we might be there already. If we can stay in this, then we’re at a point where I feel that we’ve done well by this but I don’t have any plans right now to go anywhere, but you never know.”
One of Fauci’s vocal critics was Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) who has been leading to remove him as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — saying no one should be “dictator in chief.”
The Gateway Pundit noted:
One of Fauci’s most vocal critics over the past few months, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), has been leading the charge within the federal government to hold him accountable. This week, Sen. Paul, who has hammered Fauci during multiple congressional hearings and caused him to perjure himself repeatedly, said Fauci has become a “dictator-in-chief” and introduced a measure that would have removed Fauci as the director of NIAID. The measure would have also scrapped the agency altogether in favor of three new institutes that would collaborate to make public health decisions.
Unfortunately, the legislation did not have enough support in the Democrat-controlled Congress to pass, but that does not mean Fauci is in the clear – he’s far from it.
In addition to Sen. Paul’s efforts, several notable lawyers and doctors who have been outspoken critics of the US public health response to Covid, most notably Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Naomi Wolf, and Attn. Thomas Renz, are coming out swinging against Fauci, looking to finally pin him down for his crimes.
