Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) sent a criminal referral on Dr. Anthony Fauci to the U.S. Department of Justice. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal editorial board called on Congress to investigate National Institutes of Health funding of controversial research in Wuhan, China.
Paul is asking Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate Fauci for allegedly lying to Congress when he said the National Institutes of Health (NIH) “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
Last week, Paul asked Fauci if he wanted to retract the statement he made to Congress during a May 11 hearing. Paul said, “Dr. Fauci, knowing that it is a crime to lie to Congress, do you wish to retract your statement of May 11, where you claimed the NIH never funded gain-of-function research and move on?”
