Anthony Fauci spent the entire pandemic lying to – and intentionally misleading – the American people with his COVID mandates and restrictions.
Senator Rand Paul vowed to hold Dr. Fauci accountable for his crimes.
But Anthony Fauci just said two words on CNN that Rand Paul will make him live to regret.
Republicans only need to flip one seat to take back the U.S. Senate and just five seats to take back the House this fall.
With Joe Biden’s Presidency dragging down Democrats across the board, some Republicans are discussing plans for when they retake the majority.
Republicans are promising to hold investigations into Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) January 6 witch hunt, President Biden’s failure in Afghanistan, and Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland’s politicization of the Department of Justice.
Dr. Anthony Fauci is also in the crosshairs of the GOP, as Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has promised to lead an investigation into his mishandling of the pandemic.
During a recent interview with CNN, Fauci pretended to not care about Senator Paul’s promise to investigate him if Republicans take back Congress this fall.
CNN host John Brennan began the conversation by pointing out to Dr. Fauci that Paul had recently said Republicans plan to subpoena Fauci’s records next year once in the majority.
“Your reaction to Rand Paul and others saying they’re going to investigate you if they take office?” Brennan asked Fauci.
“Well, there’s no reason to do that, but if they want to, go ahead,” Fauci replied.
Of course, there are numerous reasons for Republicans to subpoena Fauci’s records.
Fauci lied when he said “two weeks to slow the spread.”
He lied about the effectiveness of wearing a facemask and the effectiveness of the vaccine.
But the biggest reason to investigate Fauci is because he lied about funding gain-of-function research on coronaviruses – which is simply the process of manipulating the virus to make it more contagious and deadly in order to learn how to stop it – at the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology.
During a Senate hearing, Dr. Fauci told Senator Paul that the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which Fauci has led since 1984, never funded gain-of-function research on coronaviruses at China’s Wuhan Lab.
After a report proved the NIH did, in fact, fund gain-of-function research, Paul called Fauci out during a follow-up hearing and offered him an opportunity to retract his statement to avoid being charged with perjury.
Of course, the arrogant, supposedly infallible Dr. Fauci rejected the Senator’s offer to correct the record, instead choosing to double down on his lie while attacking Senator Paul as a liar.
With Democrats in control of Congress, there is little Rand Paul can do at the moment to hold Fauci accountable.
If Republicans take back Congress this fall though, Senator Paul is promising to hold hearings and subpoena Fauci’s records.
But Fauci dismissed Paul’s threat during his interview on CNN, saying, “My records are an open book.”
“All I have ever done, and go back and look at everything I’ve ever done, was to recommend common-sense, good, CDC-recommended public health policies that have saved millions of lives,” Fauci continued, before adding, “if you want to investigate me for that, go ahead.”
There is a good chance Republicans will take back Congress in November.
And if they do, Dr. Anthony Fauci will live to regret daring Senator Rand Paul to “go ahead” with his investigation.
