The Republican Study Committee argued in a policy memo that if Republicans take back Congress in November’s midterm elections, holding “radical” public health officials like Fauci accountable must be a “major oversight priority” for the party.

“If Congress fails to hold the Fauci clique accountable, and fails to reform public health agencies, we will be giving far-left bureaucrats a blank check to shut the country down whenever they want to,” RSC Chairman Jim Banks (R-Ind.) said. “We need to send a message that the restrictions, the mandates, and the school closures can never happen again.”
