Republican Senator Rand Paul has officially referred Dr Anthony Fauci to the Department of Justice’s Attorney General Merrick Garland in the hope he will launch a criminal investigation into whether the disease expert lied under oath to Congress.
According to the Washington Examiner Senator Paul wrote to the DOJ last week. “I write to urge the United States Department of Justice to open an investigation into testimony made to the United States Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions by Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on May 11, 2021,” he wrote.
Last week Dr Fauci was probed by Senator Paul over whether the National Institutes of Health funded dangerous gain-of-function research at Wuhan Institute of Virology. The research is a major theory into how coronavirus originated as it’s the medical procedure of “altering an organism or disease in a way that increases pathogenesis, transmissibility, or host range”.
Dr Fauci strongly denied this and told Congress no funds under his watch went towards the research. However Senator Paul dismissed his denial and said he should be investigated by the DOJ over charges of lying to Congress. “If this virus came from the lab and it becomes clear he was funding dangerous research moral culpability responsibility attaches to him and he does not want that,” Senator Paul told Fox News. Despite Senator Paul’s determination for a criminal investigation, he believes the DOJ will act in a “partisan” way and won’t pursue his recommendation.
The senator said if the public wants the truth they should “convene a panel” of scientists and ask them if President Xi was operating gain-of-function research in China. “Right now Fauci is getting away with this because no one is questioning him,” he said. “He only goes on left wing networks – they give him easy questions like ‘isn’t Rand Paul so out there?’ “That’s the kind of questions he gets. Nobody asks him why it isn’t it gain-of-function research. “And if this science says it’s the epitome of gain-of-function research, how are you still denying it?”
