Dr. Anthony Fauci is facing a criminal scandal being pushed by GOP rep. Madison Cawthorn.
According to Fox News, “Cawthorn says he stands by his criticism of Dr. Anthony Fauci after the doctor appeared on Fox News and rebuked Cawthorn’s suggestion that legal action should be taken against Fauci.”
“Dr. Fauci broke his oath,” said Cawthorn. “Not only his oath in Congress, but his Hippocratic oath as a doctor, to do no harm. I stand by my statements, and justice will be served.”
Cawthorn expounded on why he believes Fauci is guilty:
U.S. Code sections 1621 and 1001 of Title 18 are the two relevant legal standards at play here,” Cawthorn said. “Section 1621 states that anyone who ‘willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true’ is guilty of perjury and shall be fined or imprisoned up to five years, or both. Section 1001 stipulates that ‘whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the government of the United States, knowingly and willfully” falsifies or conceals information, including before a congressional committee’s inquiry, may also be fined or imprisoned up to five years.’
