Vindicated senator takes victory lap after Fauci’s corruption definitively revealed.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul (R) took a victory lap Tuesday following the release of documents revealing the extent of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab in China.
“Surprise surprise – Fauci lied again,” Paul said in a tweet, which included a link to an Intercept report with 900 pages of FOIA documents revealing Fauci funded coronavirus gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.
“And I was right about his agency funding novel Coronavirus research at Wuhan. Read this thread and the papers released.”
Paul was the first lawmaker to directly confront the National Institute of Health director about his funding of gain-of-function research at Wuhan.
In the first tense exchange during a Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions hearing in May, Paul noted the NIH was funding gain-of-function research through the EcoHealth Alliance group.
aul accused Fauci of committing perjury during another hearing in July for lying about the NIH’s role in gain-of-function research in Wuhan.
“Senator Paul, you do not know what you’re talking about, and I want to say that officially,” Fauci snapped.
These newly-released FOIA documents from the NIH reveal definitively that Paul was right; Fauci lied to Congress on numerous occasions.
But don’t expect Joe Biden’s Department of Justice to act.
