Last week a bombshell letter from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) revealed Dr. Anthony Fauci’s previous claims about dangerous gain-of-function funding with the Wuhan lab were lies. The stunning revelation from Fauci’s own agency revealed that funding did in fact fund gain-of-function research on the coronavirus. Now, Senator Rand Paul is calling for Fauci to immediately be fired, or at the very least investigated by Congress.
Fox News reports:
Paul was interviewed by Axios and mentioned a letter from the NIH to Ranking Member Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., that admitted to “limited experiment” conducted in order to test if “spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model,” which critics say contradict Fauci’s long-held claim.
“He [Fauci] should be fired, Paul said. He continued, “just for lack of judgment if nothing else.”
“He’s going to continue to disassemble and try to work around the truth and massage the truth,” he said.
Mike Allen, the interviewer for Axios, told Paul that it is unlikely that President Biden would fire Fauci. Paul said that he would be content with an investigation into the gain-of-function research that he has been calling on for months.
Fauci is now battling another scandal after news broke that he also allegedly permitted experimental research on puppies.
