It’s now Dr. Fauci’s time in the barrel.
The evidence of wrongdoing is piling up.
And a key Senator just accused Dr. Fauci of this stunning crime.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has emerged as the key antagonist of Dr. Fauci.
Paul has repeatedly questioned Dr. Fauci about his agency – the National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) – funding gain of function research on coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
New evidence that lab workers at the institute may have been infected with the coronavirus in November 2019 fueled speculation that the virus escaped from the lab via an accident.
When Dr. Fauci last testified before the Senate, he denied the government ever funded gain of function research in China.
Appearing on Fox News, Rand Paul blasted Dr. Fauci for committing perjury.
“Absolutely, he lied to the American people. There was gain of function research going on with Dr. Shi Zhengli at the Wuhan Institute,” Paul stated.
Paul cited one of the doctors at the Wuhan Institute of Virology specifically thanking Dr. Fauci and the agency he runs.
“In her paper, she actually thanked Dr. Fauci and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is a part of National Institutes of Health (NIH) that Dr. Fauci runs,” Paul added.
Paul noted that Dr. Zhengli’s paper listed the NIAID as a funding source for her research.
“It’s listed at the end of the paper. This paper was fined by NIAID research and it lists a ten digit number that identifies the research money she got from from the United States. Was it gain of function?” Paul continued.
Paul described the types of experiments Dr. Zhengli was running as fitting the dictionary definition of gain of function research.
“Well it took a SARS virus, which is a coronavirus, that’s 15 times more deadly than COVID, and it added to it S protein, which is something in the surface of it, to make it more easily infectious to epithelial cells for the respiratory tract. That to me is gain of function,” Paul concluded.
These new developments only led to increased calls for Dr. Fauci to clarify what he knows about his agency funding gain of function research in China or face criminal prosecution for lying to Congress.
