Rep. Nancy Mace responded to comments that were made by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy over the weekend during an interview he conducted with “Breitbart News Saturday” in which he called for Dr. Fauci to “leave his post” due to the fact the American people “don’t have trust” in him.
“I loved hearing Kevin McCarthy say that this weekend,” Mace said during a conversation with Newsmax‘s “John Bachman Now” program on Monday, adding, “I fully support it, wholeheartedly support it.”
She said that is because “Fauci hasn’t been honest with the American people.”
“First, it was masks – saying that they ‘wouldn’t protect us from COVID-19, not to wear them’ – then [he] said, ‘Oh, yes, later on you’ve got to wear them’ having more power and control over the American people, doing a great disservice to us,” the congresswoman said.
Now she is taking issue “with those 900 emails that were released last week.”
“They redacted parts of it when it came to the lab leak theory,” she said, “and I want to know what he said; I want to know what he said privately in those unclassified emails and what he said to the American people.”
“Probably 2 very different things,” Mace continued.
And Fauci and his emails are not the congresswoman’s only concern at the moment either.
“It’s been 140 days and border czar [Vice President Kamala] Harris has yet to visit the border. She in fact had to fly over Mexico to get to Guatemala and couldn’t make a stop,” making a reference to Vice President Kamala Harris’ visit to Guatemala where she met with President Alejandro Giammattei on Monday.
“She needs to be held accountable – 140 days in and not a single visit” to the border, she stated.
