The Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee held a hearing on the efforts to combat COVID-19 on Tuesday.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into Dr. Fauci on Tuesday about funding the Wuhan lab.
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.
It’s also important to note that back in 2017 we had solid intelligence about a viral leak in a high-security Chinese virology R&D center that resulted in the SARS virus getting out and killing people.
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.
Last month Washington Post columnist Josh Rogan said Fauci needs to provide answers about his involvement with the Wuhan lab.
“Dr. Fauci and the National Institutes of Health were responsible for using taxpayer dollars for gain of function research, to weaponize viruses to make them more contagious and more deadly.” he said.
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.”
Rand Paul would not back down and really got under Fauci’s skin!
