Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) unveiled what he believes to be the biggest lie exposed in the emails from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony Fauci.
Senator Paul appeared on “Fox & Friends,” where he broke down what had been learned from the trove of emails. Paul specifically discussed Fauci’s role in funding gain-of-function research at the lab in Wuhan.
Senator Paul said, “Well, he still denies to this day that he was funding it. And as you know, gain of function is where you take an animal virus, and you make it into a super-virus that infects humans. They were doing this at the Wuhan lab. Dr. Fauci still denies it to this day, but in his private e-mails, he puts in the subject line: urgent, we must discuss this gain of function research.”
Dr. Fauci knew about what was going on in Wuhan, yet he hid that knowledge from Americans for over a year. Even after coronavirus claimed the lives of over a million people worldwide, Fauci is still burying his role in this crisis.
Senator Paul continued saying, “There are scientists across America who will dispute what he’s saying, who says that specifically the grant and the money given to Wuhan that Dr. Fauci approved, that it was gain of function research. And we need to talk to these scientists in this field and hear from them about how Dr. Fauci is not being honest with the American public.”
Dr. Fauci was willing to mislead Americans for over a year to protect himself and his interests. Fauci should be in front of Congress setting the record straight on every lie and inconsistency that he is responsible for.
