(JustPatriots.com)- Libertarian Republican Senator Rand Paul has promised to bring controversial public health official Dr. Anthony Fauci to justice over the repeated lies told under oath about the COVID-19 pandemic, the origins of the virus, and whether or not the National Institutes of Health funded gain of function research in Wuhan, China.
During an interview with his father, former Rep. Ron Paul, Senator Paul – who is also a medical doctor – said that if the Republican Party takes back the Senate in this year’s midterm elections, he will be the chairman of a Senate committee.
“We will use the subpoena power to bring forth all the records,” he said.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, repeatedly claimed under oath that the federal agency – and its umbrella agency, the National Institutes of Health – did not fund gain of function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology that could have potentially led to the outbreak of COVID-19 at the end of 2019.
However, it has since been revealed that hundreds of thousands of dollars from the NIH were in fact spent on gain of function research in Wuhan. The NIH even admitted it.
Paul said that whenever the NIH and NIAID send records that they ask, they redact important information. Whenever senators ask about discussions public health officials have had about the origins of the virus, the documents sent back to them are essentially blank, and those conversations are never revealed.
However, if subpoena power is transferred back to Republicans, then these agencies won’t be able to hide.
“We’ll get to the root of everything,” he said.
Paul also predicted that Fauci would likely retire from his position before they ever got to this stage – potentially escaping some of the blame. However, as the chief advisor to the president on this pandemic, he’ll never truly escape.
