Fauci, top scientist called to brief House committees; phone call questioned

A top scientist emailed Dr. Anthony Fauci during the early days of the COVID-19 outbreak that the virus seemed like it may have been engineered. 

The following evening, the scientist joined other experts on a call with the top disease doctor and days later dismissed the idea of an engineered virus as a "crackpot" theory.

Two top House Republicans now want to know how a scientist can have such a dramatic change in opinion -- so quickly -- about a virus that continues to baffle top experts.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said in a letter Thursday to Kristian Andersen, a virologist at California’s Scripps Research Institute, that he's interested in learning what was discussed during the call that may have contributed to the change of opinion.
