Fauci Is All Out Of Luck And Fresh Out Of Time- GOP Is On A Warpath

Senator Rand Paul announced on Twitter that pandemic doc Anthony Fauci can run but he can’t hide. Fauci announced that he was stepping down to chase other dreams or some such crap but no one is buying it. The GOP has made it known that they want him to answer for the mishandling of the pandemic and for his part in the gain of function research that potentially created the virus in the first place.

Paul, who has been on to Fauci from the beginning vowed that the GOP will have justice and said Fauci will be asked to testify under oath. Paul noted that Fauci’s swift departure changes nothing.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), however, warned that an early retirement will not stop Republicans in the House from putting the spotlight on Fauci as they investigate the origins of the coronavirus.

“Fauci’s resignation will not prevent a full-throated investigation into the origins of the pandemic. He will be asked to testify under oath regarding any discussions he participated in concerning the lab leak,” Paul stated.

Paul had a tense exchange with Fauci in November 2021 over Fauci essentially changing the definition of gain-of-function research to better suit his purposes.

“We’re aware that you deleted gain-of-function to the NIH website,” Paul said during the exchange, as it is clear that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) did, in fact, fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab:

“You’re simply saying it doesn’t exist because you changed the definition on the NIH website. This is terrible and you’re completely trying to escape the idea that we should do something about trying to prevent a pandemic from leaking from a lab. And what you’ve done is change the definition on your website to try to cover your ass, basically. That’s what you’ve done, you’ve changed the website to change the definition that doesn’t include the risky research that’s going on. Until you admit that it’s risky, we’re not going to get anywhere. You have to admit that this research was risky. The NIH has now rebuked them, your own agency has rebuked them. You’re still unwilling to admit that they gained in function when they say they became sicker. They gained in lethality. It’s a new virus. That’s not gain-of-function?”

Fauci’s statement that announced his nearing departure claimed that he plans to move on to better things but most of us know that he’s trying to get as far away from this pandemic mess as possible. I’m sure his hope is to dodge any repercussions the GOP plans to enforce if they’re successful in regaining the majority—Which looks to be a slam-dunk at this point.
