CCHF Denounces Dr. Fauci’s Testimony and Demands Accountability for Pandemic Mismanagement 

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF) Co-founder and President Twila Brase, RN, PHN provides the following statement on Dr. Fauci’s testimony before the House Oversight Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic: 

“Dr. Fauci’s role during the COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented harm and confusion. His testimony on Monday only reaffirmed the significant damage for which he is responsible. His claim that a more targeted approach, such as the Barrington Declaration, would have led to a million more people dying is not based on science. His claim is also not based on publicly available statistics from around the world, including from Sweden, which wisely refused to shut down their economy or keep their children out of school.  

“Dr. Fauci’s shifting guidance—such as claiming that masks don’t work; masks work; two masks are better than one—and baseless recommendations led to widespread fear. His insistence on science-free lockdowns, mask mandates, and injections—without sufficient regard for individual rights, vaccine safety, and long-term impacts on public health—has had devastating consequences. 

“The New York Post recently revealed that Dr. Fauci’s division made nearly $700 million in pandemic royalties from 2021 to 2023. Might these financial inducements be the reason his handling of the pandemic response ignored safe alternative treatments such as ivermectin and dismissed legitimate scientific dissent, while promoting policies with severe economic and social repercussions? Small businesses were shuttered, mental health crises surged, and educational disruptions have left lasting scars on our children. 

“Dr. Fauci’s connections to gain-of-function research, and his continued obfuscation about what credible scientists told him they suspected about the origins of the virus, raise serious ethical and legal questions.  

“Republican lawmakers rightfully highlighted the lack of consistent messaging, the suppression of credible alternative viewpoints, and the harmful effects of prolonged lockdowns. These points resonate with countless Americans who feel betrayed by the very public health officials entrusted to protect them. 

“Dr. Fauci and other public health leaders must be held accountable for their actions. CCHF remains committed to advocating for health care policies that respect personal choice and medical freedom. We will continue to expose the failures of those, like Dr. Fauci, who misuse their authority and undermine the public’s trust.”
