Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) on Friday urged Dr. Anthony Fauci to resign as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and called for a full investigation into the origins of the coronavirus.

“Anthony Fauci’s recently released emails and investigative reporting about #COVID19 origins are shocking. The time has come for Fauci to resign and for a full congressional investigation into the origins of #COVID19 – and into any and all efforts to prevent a full accounting,” Hawley wrote on social media.

The Missouri Republican added: “The public deserves to know if persons within the US govt tried to stop a full investigation into #COVID origins, as recently reported. And Congress must also find out to what extent Fauci’s NIAID was involved in financing research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
