(TheRedAlertNews.com) – HAPPENING NOW: After five decades in the employment of the United States federal government, Dr. Anthiny Fauci has announced he is stepping down and will retire before the end of President Joe Biden’s first term as president.
Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Chief Medical Advisor to President Biden.
According to Politico, which conducted an extensive interview with Fauci and broke the news of his leaving:
“After more than five decades of federal service under seven presidents, Anthony Fauci says he’s leaving by the end of President Joe Biden’s term.”
As for why he’s staying that much longer and if he feels a sense of obligation, Fauci told Politico:
“‘We’re in a pattern now. If somebody says, ‘You’ll leave when we don’t have Covid anymore,’ then I will be 105. I think we’re going to be living with this.’”
Fauci also addressed whether he’s retiring because he expects the GOP to take back Congress in the midterms and knows he’ll take heat from the Republicans if they are in control.
“Fauci says he’s prepared for the onslaught of attacks that could come in a Republican-controlled House or Senate next year — with many running in the midterms on campaigns deriding the lockdowns, school closures and masking requirements that Fauci said were necessary pandemic precautions — but insists that is not part of his calculus for retirement.”
Bottom line: By January 2025, Dr. Anthiny Fauci will have stepped down.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS ALERT FROM RED ALERT NEWS.
