On Tuesday the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee held a hearing on the efforts to combat COVID-19.
As Cristina reported earlier, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into Dr. Fauci about funding the Wuhan laboratory in Wuhan, China.
In May 2020, TGP reported this: The leader of the US task force overseeing the country’s response to the China coronavirus, Dr. Tony Fauci, was the one who funded the Wuhan bat virus work and kept it going.
Since May 2020, The Gateway Pundit has been reporting on Dr. Anthony Fauci’s likely illegal funding of coronavirus projects at the Wuhan Virology Center.
It is clear that they successfully isolated the coronavirus in the lab and were actively experimenting with species-to-species transmission.
Rand Paul confronted Fauci on Tuesday: “Dr. Fauci, do you still support funding of the NIH funding of the lab in Wuhan?”
Arrogant Fauci shot back at the Kentucky lawmaker: “Senator Paul, with all due respect, you are entirely and completely incorrect that the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan institute.”
Watch the video:
Tuesday night on Rob Schmitt Tonight Senator Rand Paul responded to Dr. Fauci’s statements from today’s hearing.
Senator Paul rightfully accused Dr. Fauci of being dishonest.
Senator Rand Paul: He was being dishonest. In fact, one of the main papers published by Dr. Shi in the Wuhan Institute says in the byline, “Funded by the NIH,” and funded specifically by the NIAI which is AID, which is Fauci’s group. So, no, he completely dissembled on that. He’s leading you on to believe something that’s not true.
