Sen. Paul Announces He Is Making ‘Criminal Referral’ To DOJ For Fauci ‘Lying To Congress’

During an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Tuesday night, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he would be referring Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), to the Department of Justice for a criminal investigation over Fauci allegedly lying to Congress.

“You kicked off your questioning of Dr. Fauci emphasizing federal law makes lying to Congress a felony punishable by up to five years in prison,” Hannity said. “Is it your belief based on the evidence, senator, that he lied before Congress and broke the law?”

“Yes, and I will be sending a letter to the Department of Justice asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to Congress,” Paul answered.


Paul’s announcement comes after he had a heated exchange with Fauci during a Senate hearing on Tuesday when Paul suggested Fauci lied about whether the National Institutes of Health-funded gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“On your last trip to our committee on May 11, you stated that the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Paul said to Fauci. He then referenced a paper by Dr. Shi Zhengli of the Wuhan Virology Lab, which claimed the NIH did fund her research into SARS-related coronaviruses and asked Fauci if he would like to retract his previous statements.

“Senator Paul, I have never lied before the Congress, and I do not retract that statement,” Fauci responded. “This paper that you are referring was judged by qualified staff up and down the chain as not being gain-of-function.”

Paul interjected, “You take an animal virus and you increase transmissibility to human, you’re saying that is not gain of function?”

“That is correct,” Fauci angrily replied. “Senator Paul, you do not know what you are talking about, quite frankly, and I want to say that officially. You do not know what you are talking about!”

    Again another person associated with the government who will not be prosecuted for his crimes. It is so tiring to see how corrupt of system is and very rarely does it ever mean persecution.

    My sister called it day one on him and she was right. This man needs to be removed. Notice the “doctor” has been dropped often. Most people have lost all respect him for his lies.

    I agree with William. Just like all the Democrats, they can’t tell the truth and they are killing America. Wake up people!

    Still with your TDS? – Take an extra vaccine shot, Fauci said it works wonders for that, as well as belly fat, hairy ears, smelly arm pits and itchy butt cracks.
