Rep. Madison Cawthorn: White House Is Talking about Fauci's 'Exit Strategy'
'This person has destroyed so many lives'
Rep. Madison Cawthorn said White House insider says officials are talking about an exit strategy for Dr. Tony Fauci following his recent explosive unearthed emails.
Madison Cawthorn, who joined Greg Kelly on Newsmax TV on Thursday night, said:
"His days are numbered."
"I know an insider in the White House who has spoken very openly to me that they are talking about exit strategies for Anthony Fauci," Cawthorn said.
"But it’s very, very clear, I’m happy that his book deal is probably going to get destroyed because this person has destroyed so many lives."
"There were so many inconsistencies," he added.
"It seems like he was a megalomaniac."
Fauci acknowledged that a “typical mask you buy at the drugstore is not really effective in keeping out virus” and also asked a colleague to “please handle” the narrative surrounding the Wuhan Lab theory.
The emails also reveal the close relationship with Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention Director George Gao.
Excerpts obtained from The Washington Post showed Fauci’s cozy email exchanges with George Gao, his Chinese counterpart:
The released emails show that Fauci indeed tried to answer many queries, sometimes hitting “send” well after midnight. And even as Trump ratcheted up attacks on China for not containing the virus after it was first discovered there, Fauci sought to maintain ties with Gao, a well-regarded Chinese scientific leader.
Recently, Fauci claimed that he was never "anti-Trump" while working with the 45th POTUS but alleges that supporters of President Donald Trump "resent" him because they just don't "understand" how science works.
Speaking during a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was responding to the backlash of his published emails.
