Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows accused Dr. Anthony Fauci of ignoring requests to probe a possible leak at a Wuhan lab that could be related to the outbreak of the coronavirus in 2019, during an interview with Fox on Thursday.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
'He was putting out more press releases than he was signing checks to figure out where this virus started," Meadows told the cable network.
'Dr. Fauci not only had probable cause to look that it was a lab leak, but he looked the other way. You know, it’s time that we hold him accountable,' Meadows said on Fox News Primetime.

This is not the first time Fauci has received accusations regarding the alleged origins of COVID-19 at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Earlier this week, Sen. Rand Paul questioned Fauci on gain of function – and the U.S. indirectly funding that research in China – on a few occasions. The theory has emerged in conservative circles as a potential answer to the origins of COVID-19.
Last month, the Kentucky Republican also accused Fauci of lying and demanded he be fired after a slew of his emails were made public.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
Paul claimed to Fox News early in June that thousands of emails revealed by Buzzfeed News and the Washington Post proved Fauci may have been in-part responsible for the development of COVID-19.
The emails reveal that Fauci was warned privately of the possibility that the origins of COVID-19 were due to a lab leak in Wuhan – even though he publicly dismissed the ideas and allowed Democrats to call it a conspiracy.
The email revelation did not show Fauci’s personal take on the theory.
Fauci lashed out at Paul on Tuesday during a Senate hearing as he accused the Kentucky Republican of being a 'liar' who 'doesn't know what you're talking about' when it comes to COVID origins and gain-of-function research.
