Dr. Fauci instantly regretted what a hot mic caught him saying about this Republican Senator
Dr. Fauci experienced a grilling like never before.
The tyrannical bureaucrat faced tough questions about his falsehoods and failures.
And now Dr. Fauci instantly regretted what a hot mic caught him saying about this Republican Senator.
Kansas Senator Roger Marshall, who is also a medical doctor, got into a heated back-and-forth argument with Dr. Fauci about his financial disclosure form being a matter of public record.
It ended with a hot mic picking up the power-mad Fauci calling Marshall a “moron.”
As the highest paid employee in the federal government, Dr. Fauci makes more than the President.
But Fauci’s connection to the dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology is now a matter of much debate.
Emails show other scientists told Fauci that the lab leak theory was the most likely origin of the virus, which led many to believe Fauci tried to dismiss it as a conspiracy theory to cover up any culpability by the National Institute of Health in funding the research that made coronaviruses more transmissible.
Senator Marshall pressed Fauci about gain-of-function research and also about why his financial disclosure form was not a matter of public record.
“My financial disclosures are public knowledge, and have been so. You are getting amazingly wrong information,” Dr. Fauci claimed.
But Senator Marshall interjected that his office was unable to find any such public financial disclosure form.
Dr. Fauci and Marshall argued back and forth on this point, with Fauci claiming his finances were publicly available and Senator Marshall insisting they were not.
When Chairman Senator Patty Murray informed Marshall that his time was up, Fauci muttered “Jesus Christ” into the microphone and smeared Marshall as a “moron.”
Senator Marshall later released a statement mocking Fauci for lashing out during the hearing.
In the statement, Senator Marshall noted that Fauci emerged from the hearing awash in scandal as new evidence proved he funneled taxpayer dollars to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to fund gain-of-function research.
“I understand that Anthony Fauci had a very frustrating day: having a bombshell report show he in fact did award U.S. tax dollars for gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and being called out about his personal financial disclosure during the COVID pandemic NOT being publicly available must be very frustrating,” Senator Marshall’s statement began.
“Calling me a moron during a Senate hearing may have alleviated the stress of the least trusted bureaucrat in America, but it didn’t take away from the facts,” Senator Marshall concluded.
