Rand Paul Tells Libs To Stuff It, He Was Right About Fauci All Along
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has taken quite a few victory laps recently but here's the thing—He has deserved every one. Paul was recently proven correct when he said people who have had covid previously has an immunity to it now. The media shredded Paul only to eat those words after a Yale study concluded he was right.
Paul also took a ton of criticism for claiming to have information that Fauci lied about 'gain of function funding. Thanks to a breaking report done by the Intercept, we now know for sure that the Wuhan lab was receiving funding for gain of function research.
When asked about possible charges Fauci could face for lying Paul said, "it’s a felony punishable by five years in jail. We’ve referred it to the Department of Justice. I don’t think Biden’s Department of Justice will do anything with it but yes, it is very dangerous to have public officials who we need to have trust in coming and lying to us, but he has lied dozens of times".
Paul continued, "Usually, he tells us that it’s for our own good but yes, he has dissembled, he has obfuscated—there’s other nicer words—but he has definitely lied to the American public and he should be held responsible but not just that."
"The judgment that we should continue to fund this lab and—that the virus in all likelihood came from the lab. I think it’s such incredibly poor judgment that he should be immediately removed," Paul concluded.
The Intercept released a report that revealed the U.S. government pumped $3.1 million into American health organization EcoHealth Alliance to back bat coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
According to the report, almost $600,000 of that federal moneywas partially used by the WIV to find and alter bat coronaviruses that could jump to humans and infect them.
Additionally, the documents revealed that experimental research on genetically engineered mice with human cell receptors was conducted at the Wuhan University Center for Animal Experiment, and not the WIV as previously thought.
"The documents make it clear that assertions by the NIH Director, Francis Collins, and the NIAID Director, Anthony Fauci, that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement at WIV are untruthful," Rutgers University chemical biology professor Richard Ebright wrote in a Tuesday Twitter thread.
Back during June's hearing Fauci called Paul a liar for implying that any 'gain of function' funding took place. Paul at the time said he had inside information that it was true but could not reveal his source:
“You are implying that what we did resulted in the deaths of individuals,” Fauci said back in June as he pointed his finger at Paul. “I totally resent that, and if anyone is lying here, senator, it is you.”
