Fauci testified and responded to questions about the NIH’s role in funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.
Rand Paul and Fauci got into a tense exchange over Fauci’s involvement in funding the Wuhan lab’s gain-of-function research that likely led to Covid-19. Fauci AGAIN denied he funded gain-of-function research. Rand Paul also warned Fauci that lying to Congress is a crime.
“Dr. Fauci, as you are aware it is a crime to lie to Congress, Section 1001 of the US Criminal Code. Critics say a felony and a five-year penalty for lying to Congress,” Rand Paul said.
Senator Paul is following through with his threats and said he will be criminally referring Fauci to the Justice Department.
