Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, vowed Sunday to uncover what Dr. Anthony Fauci knew about the origins of the coronavirus pandemic if Congress flips back to Republican control after the 2022 midterm elections. 

This comes after Jordan and other Republican leaders on the House Oversight and Judiciary committees released excerpts of emails last week that they say reveal Fauci, as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, knew that COVID-19 may have been intentionally modified and leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

"If the American people put us back in charge, we are definitely going to do this," Jordan said during an appearance on "Sunday Morning Futures," vowing to host Maria Bartiromo that he, Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., and Sens. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Ron Johnson, R-Wis., would push for a sweeping congressional investigation into the origins of the coronavirus if Republicans regain control of Congress.

"Because we now know without a doubt that Dr. Fauci knew on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 that this thing came from a lab," Jordan argued on Sunday. "The top scientists in the country were saying it came from a lab. One scientist says we got the notes now from the conference call on February 1st. One scientist says, ‘I don’t see how this can happen in nature, but it would be easy to do in a lab.’"
