Sen. Rand Paul: Fauci "Has Definitely Lied To The American Public And He Should Be Held Responsible"

|

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci lied to Congress about the origins of COVID-19 and about the nature of the grant the National Institutes of Health (NIH) gave to the Wuhan Institute of Virology on Wednesday in an interview with FOX News host Sean Hannity. In a heated argument at a Senate hearing earlier this year, Fauci called Paul a liar when the Senator accused him of being responsible for gain-of-function research that the NIH funded.

Documents from the Wuhan lab should Fauci was not correct about gain-of-function research.

"It's a felony punishable by five years in jail," Paul said. "WE've referred it to the Department of Justice. I don’t think Biden’s Department of Justice will do anything with it but yes, it is very dangerous to have public officials who we need to have trust in coming and lying to us, but he has lied dozens of times."


"Usually, he tells us that it’s for our own good but yes, he has dissembled, he has obfuscated - there’s other nicer words, but he has definitely lied to the American public and he should be held responsible but not just that," Paul said. "The judgment that we should continue to fund this lab and—that the virus in all likelihood came from the lab. I think it’s such incredibly poor judgment that he should be immediately removed."
