Dr. Fauci melted down when Rand Paul asked one question about criminal conduct
Millions of Americans are fed up with Dr. Fauci’s falsehoods, misleading statements, and horrific advice on the pandemic.
That all came to a head on Tuesday.
And Dr. Fauci melted down when Rand Paul asked one question about criminal conduct.
During a Senate Health, Education, and Labor Committee hearing, Rand Paul confronted Dr. Fauci with allegations that Fauci lied to Congress when in May, Fauci claimed the National Institute of Health never funded gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology to make coronaviruses more transmissible.
In fact, the NIH funneled money through EcoHealth System that went to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to study making coronaviruses more easily transmissible from animals to humans.
“Dr. Fauci, as you are aware, it is a crime to lie to Congress,” Paul stated. “On your last trip to our committee on May 11, you stated that the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” he added. Citing research that was conducted in the Wuhan lab and asking that a copy of the WSJ article be given to Fauci, Paul asked, “Knowing it is a crime to lie to Congress, do you wish to retract your statement?”
Dr. Fauci began shouting about how he would not retract his statement, but Senator Paul pressed forward demanding an answer about how the NIH funded gain of function research.
“You take an animal virus and you increase transmissibility to human, you’re saying that is not gain of function?” Senator Paul asked.
That’s when Fauci completely lost it as the arrogant bureaucrat began lecturing an elected Member of Congress.
“That is correct,” Fauci snarled. “Senator Paul, you do not know what you’re talking about, quite frankly, and I want to say that officially. You do not know what you’re talking about!”
Fauci revealed what his real worry was when he whined that Senator Paul exposed the fact that this dangerous gain of function research could be responsible for the deaths of millions.
“You are implying that what we did was responsible for the deaths of individuals,” Fauci ranted.
When Senator Paul calmly pointed out this could be the case, Fauci exploded calling Paul a liar.
“I totally resent that. If anybody is lying here, Senator, it is you,” Dr. Fauci thundered.
