I have no problem testifying – “I can defend everything I say and do”
Former NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci told FNC’s “Your World” on Friday that he has no problem testifying before Congress about his actions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Asked if he would testify to Congress, Fauci said, “Of course. I have a lot of respect for the monitoring process, Neil. I really am. I have nothing to hide. I can explain everything I did during the time I was involved in this process. I have no problem testifying to Congress. As I’ve said before, I have a lot of respect for our government’s oversight process.
Anchor Neal Cavuto: “Because they targeted what you did, how you did it, and the inconsistent moves in the early days, saying you don’t need masks, later than you should. You know, you criticize yourself for saying that maybe this was an isolated problem before it became a big problem, and then it turned out to be a really big problem that you expected. So they want to get to the heart of the matter with you. This can be unpleasant. Are you ready for this?
Fauci: “Yes. Like I said, Neil, I don’t have a problem. I can defend everything I say and do. There was an explanation for this. It was a moving target from the start. People should appreciate it. If something is clear in January or February, it may not be the same in March, April, May, June, or the rest of the summer. This was an evolving issue that we went through several versions of. We had different challenges. By the way, I have no problem defending what I did.
