President Trump has openly answered that he will not allow Dr. Anthony Fauci to testify before the House because they are a “bunch of Trump haters.”
He will let him testify before the Senate.
According to The Hill:
President Trump on Tuesday said Anthony Fauci will be allowed to testify before the Senate next week, but that he would prevent the government’s top infectious diseases expert from appearing before the House because he believes it’s full of “Trump haters.”
“The House is a set up. The House is a bunch of Trump haters,” the president told reporters as he departed the White House to visit a Honeywell factory in Arizona.
“But Dr. Fauci will be testifying in front of the Senate, and he looks forward to doing that,” Trump added. “But the House I will tell you, the House, they should be ashamed of themselves. And, frankly, the Democrats should be ashamed, because they don’t want us to succeed. They want us to fail so they can win an election.”
The president also complained about a House oversight committee set up to review the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, noting that some of his staunchest critics were included on the panel. He singled out Reps. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.).
The White House has issued a memo stating that no task force members can accept an invitation to testify unless White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows allows it.
