Appearing on Fox News, Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky presented smoking-gun evidence that former White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci is guilty of perjury.
Paul said it’s a clear case because Dr. Fauci lied while testifying to Congress about funding coronavirus research in China.
“I don’t think there’s ever been a clearer case of perjury in the history of government testimony, and I don’t say that lightly,” Paul began. (POLL: Is Joe Biden Fit to be President? Vote Now)
Rand Paul tears into Fauci:

“He said adamantly that the government never funded this gain-of-function research. We now have the Government Accountability Office, the GAO, has admitted that the funding came from the NIH,” he continued.
“We have the acting director [Lawrence] Tabak, of the NIH, admitting it in writing that it came from the NIH. But now we have, really, the smoking gun, and that is Fauci in private saying the opposite of what he was saying in public when he was publicly telling me that absolutely, we do not fund gain-of-function research in China,” Paul added.
“He says privately we are suspicious that the virus has been manipulated and we are suspicious because we know they are doing gain-of-function research,” the senator said.
“He then goes on to describe the research, and it’s exactly the research that the NIH funded. So he’s caught dead to rights here, but we have an incredibly partisan Attorney General [Merrick] Garland, who is refusing to act, so I’ve taken the extraordinary step of actually going to the local U.S. attorney in D.C. to see if he will act.”
“The problem is there are partisans littered throughout the legal system, and people are seeing this. You don’t get prosecuted if you’re a Democrat under this administration, no matter what you do,” he concluded.
An email in February 2020 revealed that Fauci knew about concerns with “sequences of several isolates of the nCoV, there were mutations in the virus that would be most unusual to have evolved naturally in the bats and that there was a suspicion that this mutation was intentionally inserted.” (Trending: Disney Just Pulled A Bud Light)
In the email, Fauci wrote, “The suspicion was heightened by the fact that scientists in Wuhan University are known to have been working on gain-of-function experiments to determine the molecular mechanisms associated with bat viruses adapting to human infection, and the outbreak originated in Wuhan.”
Fauci continues to claim that he “never lied before Congress.”
Fauci told Paul that “you don’t know what you’re talking about.”
