Rand Paul triggers the hell out of Fauci…
Dr. Rand Paul reminds Fauci it’s a crime to lie to congress
“Senator Paul, you do not know what you are talking about, quite frankly, and I would like to say that officially. You do not know what you are talking about,” Fauci said.
Paul countered: “No one is saying those viruses caused the pandemic. What we’re alleging is that gain of function research was done in that lab and NIH funded it. You can’t get away from it, it meets your definition and you are obfuscating the truth.”
“You are implying that what we did resulted in the deaths of individuals,” Fauci responded as he pointed his finger at Paul. “I totally resent that, and if anyone is lying here, senator, it is you.”
In May, the Senate passed legislation that prohibits U.S. agencies from funding the Wuhan lab, and lawmakers in the House of Representatives have a similar bill in the works. The House Appropriations Committee last week approved an amendment to the the NIH funding bill for 2022.
The bill would also prohibit funding for gain-of-function research in Russia, China, Iran and North Korea.
