Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky dropped the hammer on Anthony Fauci, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, accusing him of conducting the ‘most massive cover-up in medical history.’
Fauci will be grilled by GOP lawmakers soon and the last time he hid behind semantics. He defined gain of function research in one way, while others like Rand Paul said it is all the same thing. But the facts remain, the US government under Obama banned that type of research. But the bureaucrats thought they knew better.
Paul said: “He felt guilty about funding the research in China that became COVID-19. And so I think, his guilt and his fear of retribution, or his fear of culpability, led him to perhaps the most massive cover-up in modern medical history.”
Paul said that from the first days of the COVID outbreak in the United States Fauci was exchanging emails “all night long.”
“The next day he has a video conference and in that conference, all of the virologists are telling him they think it came from the Wuhan lab.
“And he convinces them that day — we don’t know exactly how, because that’s been redacted — but he convinces them to change their mind and write an article for a scientific journal.”
“Then Fauci uses that very article to justify why this had to have come from nature.
“We also learned that in 2018 the Wuhan lab was asking for money from DARPA, which is part of our Defense Department, and they wanted to create a super virus that was a coronavirus with a furin cleavage site.
“A furin cleavage site is a peculiar thing that helps the virus invade the cell.
“And it just so happens to be in COVID-19.
“So a year before the pandemic the Wuhan lab is asking to create a virus that in the end looked just like COVID-19.
“I think not.”

Sen. Rand Paul: "The reason Dr. Fauci didn't want any attention drawn to this or to his funding of the lab is that ultimately he would have culpability … When this is finally declassified, it's going to be explosive." pic.twitter.com/h9aU36YsRd
