Dr. Anthony Fauci was in the hot seat this week during a congressional hearing.
When Senator Rand Paul’s (R-KY) microphone was turned on, he went right after Fauci with the accusation we have all been waiting to hear.
Fauci, given the opportunity to retract his statement regarding gain of function research, declined.
Now Paul says he will bring a criminal referral against Fauci.
Fox News recently looked at a brief part of the exchange, but you can clearly see that Fauci was rattled and completely lost his cool…
I am not a medical expert, but my understanding of the funding and the reports I have seen thus far seem to fit the “gain of function” definition.
Senator Paul agrees, and he is done playing games with Fauci.
When Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked Paul if he believes Fauci lied and if he broke the law, Paul did not hesitate in his answer.
The Kentucky Senator stated, “Yes, and I will be sending a letter to the Department of Justice asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to Congress.
“We have scientists that were lined up by the dozens to say that the research he was funding was gain-of-function. He’s doing this because he has a self-interest to cover his tracks and to cover his connection to Wuhan lab.
“Now, does he deserve all the blame? No, there’s still some conjecture as to whether or not it came from the lab.
“But he’s lying about whether or not he funded gain-of-function research, and yes, he should be punished.”
Personally, I cannot wait to see him move forward on this.
It will be very interesting to see if Biden sticks his nose in here or what justification Attorney General Garland gives if they decide to shoot down Pauls’ referral.
