Biden keeps faith in Fauci, despite email revelations

The capital city has been a sleepy place this week as a lazy, relatively normal summer seems at hand. President Biden is away celebrating the birthday of the first lady and Congress is out on recess. Meanwhile, the haggling over infrastructure is detailed and slow.

The White House would very much like things to stay that way.

So, when asked about the recently released controversial emails of Dr. Anthony Fauci — detailing what the coronavirus point man was doing and saying in the early days of the pandemic — White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki reiterated that the doctor remains Biden’s man. And as far as his past words and actions are concerned, the White House seemed to say, it’s best to leave well enough alone.

“It is obviously not that advantageous for me to relitigate the substance of emails from 17 months ago,” Psaki said when asked about the issue for the first time on Thursday. Biden has ordered a 90-day review “to get to the bottoms of the origins” of the pandemic, she continued, adding that the administration would talk once that three-month survey is complete.
