Senator Rand Paul has demanded that Dr. Anthony Fauci be arrested for lying to Congress on coronavirus gain of function studies in Wuhan, China and should serve serious prison time.
“I find that hard to believe that we still would have someone with such poor judgment, who believes that even a pandemic would be worth it, that this person is in charge of the research for our government, I find that astounding,” Sen. Paul declared on Wednesday’s Hannity show.
“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 continued.
The Kentucky Senator added, “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 [Fauci] has lied dozens of times.”
Paul went on, “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.”
Adding to Paul’s comments, Senator Tom Cotton called for prosecution against Fauci “to the fullest extent of the law.”
“It is a disgrace and it’s time for Tony Fauci to be held accountable,” Cotton added.
Meanwhile, Fauci appeared on both MSNBC and CNN, with neither network even bothering to ask a single question about the new report detailing how Fauci funded the Chinese research and then lied about it.
