Fauci: Working with Biden is “liberating” compared to working with Trump

Pres. Joe Biden rolled out a national strategy to combat Covid-19 in his first full day in office. Biden said his plan is “based on science, not politics” and was developed with input from Dr. Anthony Fauci and other experts. In his return to the White House briefing room, Dr. Fauci told reporters working with Biden is a “liberating feeling.” Dr. Leana Wen is an Emergency Room Physician and is the former Baltimore Health Commissioner. She tells Anderson Cooper the Biden administration’s goal to vaccinate 100 million people in the first 100 days isn’t an aspirational goal because the country is already vaccinating one million people a day right now. Plus, seven Senate Democrats filed an ethics complaint against Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley and are called for an investigation into how their objections to the Electoral College votes may have contributed to inciting the Capitol Hill insurrection. Senator Mazie Hirono is one of those Democrats to call for the probe. She joins AC360 to discuss why she thinks there should be an investigation and says neither Senator has shown any contrition.   Airdate: January 21, 2021   Guests: Dr. Leana Wen Sen.
