Alabama U.S. Representatives Robert Aderholt (R-Haleyville), Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) and Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) signed on to a letter from U.S. Rep. Tom Tiffany (R-Wisc.) sent to President Joe Biden that called for the United States to withdraw from the World Health Organization (WHO).

The letter, dated May 26, 2022, also requested documents and communications between the Biden administration and the WHO.

The three Alabama GOP lawmakers joined Tiffany and 85 other Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives in the letter, first obtained by The Daily Caller, that also criticized the Biden administration for reversing a Trump-era policy to withdraw from the WHO without urging reforms to the organization.

"I signed on to this letter because the World Health Organization has morphed well beyond its charter," Aderholt said in a statement sent to 1819 News. "It has lost its focus on world health and has become highly political. There are numerous examples, but I would put at the top of the list, the way they refused to stand up to the Chinese about COVID-19 and its origins."

The letter also questioned Russia's role in WHO and deemed the organization a "corrupt international bureaucracy."

"In short, the WHO is not working in the interests of the American people -- if it ever was," Tiffany wrote in the letter. "We are committed to holding your administration accountable for wasting taxpayer dollars by continuing to fund this corrupt international bureaucracy."
