House Republican Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy became the latest and highest-ranking elected Republican Saturday to call for Dr. Anthony Fauci to depart his role as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
“The American people don’t have trust in Dr. Fauci,” McCarthy told the Breitbart News Saturday radio show. “Let’s find a person we can trust. Take politics aside, I mean we’re talking about American lives here.”
When the interviewer asked him if that means “you think he needs to go,” McCarthy said yes.
“Yea, because you do not have the trust in him,” he replied.
