Dr. Anthony Fauci was heard describing Roger Marshall as a "moron."
Dr. Anthony Fauci clashed with the Republican senator on Tuesday in a tense appearance before a Senate Health Committee.
"My financial disclosure is public knowledge and has been so for the last 37 years or so," Fauci said in response to Kansas Senator Roger Marshall.
"It is wrong to force our daughters, mothers, wives, and sisters to fight our wars," Republican Missouri Senator Josh Hawley said.
"I made a decision based upon the facts that I knew at that point in time," Marshall said. "It's time to move on."
The Kansas City Star's editorial board wrote that Hawley and other Republicans who voted to acquit Trump are "making future sedition more likely."
Republican Senators Josh Hawley (Mo.) and Roger Marshall (Kan.) both voted in favor of objections to President-elect Joe Biden's victory hours after the Capitol riot, prompting Hallmark to demand that they return campaign contributions the company had given them.
Some House Republicans are planning to challenge the electors during the Senate and House joint session to count the votes on January 6. The House members will need one GOP senator to join them in their efforts to overturn the results, which would cause both chambers to meet separately to consider those objections.
Though the explanations for their refusals have been varied, several candidates are in tight races that will determine future control of the Senate.
The last time Kansas had a Democratic senator was in 1939.
