Dr. Anthony Fauci is among several other experts from President Joe Biden's administration who will testify Wednesday before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions.

The Senate will question the group concerning the current federal response to the COVID-19 new variant, Omicron, amid the latest conspiracy theory that Fauci allegedly helped create the virus at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

The Independent reported Dr. Rochelle Walensky — director of the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Fauci — director of the National Institue of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Janet Woodcock — acting commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration — and Dawn O'Connell — assistant secretary for preparedness and response at the Department of Health and Human Services will be appearing in the Senate for hearing today.

The group was called into the hearing after some health policymakers believe the administration needs an urgent reboot in the way they are handling the new variant of COVID-19.

Recently, Fauci had been the target of far-right conspiracy theory group Project Veritas, who accused the doctor of being involved with the Wuhan Institute of Virology in creating the novel coronavirus.

Although their claims regarding the COVID-19 invention were fabled, Fauci denied the allegations.

However, the right-wing figures were invested in the accusation after the group claimed they obtained documents from a "top secret share drive" at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Fauci called Senator Marshall a "moron" following their heated exchange.

The medical adviser also made headlines on Tuesday when he stated the Omicron variant "with its extraordinary, unprecedented degree of efficiency of transmissibility, will ultimately find just about everybody."
