Rand Paul says they have a smoking gun showing Dr. Fauci broke the law 

‘We have Anthony Fauci in his own words admitting that he lied.’

In July 2021, Senator Rand Paul said to Doctor Anthony Fauci, who was being questioned by Congress, “Knowing that you lied to Congress, would you like to retract your statement on May 11th where you claimed that the NIH never funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan?”

“Senator Paul,” Fauci began, “I have never lied before the Congress and I do not retract that statement.”

“You do not know what you are talking about,” Fauci shot back at Paul.

Turns out… Paul knew what he was talking about.

The House Oversight Committee possesses emails that show Fauci knew, from his own emails, that gain-of-function research was being funded by the NIH.


He said this in writing before he told Congress this was not happening.

Sen. Paul joined Fox News’ Jesse Watters on Tuesday to discuss.

“Rarely do you catch someone lying to Congress with their own words proving that they’re a liar,” Paul told Watters.

“So this is an extraordinary event here that we have email from before, he lied to us in Congress, with admitting, yes, gain-of-function research,” the senator said. “Research where they take two viruses, combine them and make them more infectious or more dangerous for humans.”

“Yes, they were doing that,” Paul continued. “Yes, he knew it. And then he came to Congress and lied about it.”


Paul recalled the exchange with Fauci two years ago.

“At first he implied ‘no, we weren’t even funding it,’” Paul said. “And then we showed him the research paper with the grant number from NIH, and he just said ‘well, I guess we were funding it. But it wasn’t gain-of-function. Which all my experts tell me wasn’t gain-of-function.’”

Paul continued, “So the thing is, he was lying and we’re looking for the paper trail on this. Because the big lie and the big judgment error was, there was supposed to be a committee. A safety committee to look at research to see if we should fund it. And none of the research in China ever went to committee.”

“Why?” Paul asked. “Only one person had the power to go around the committee. That was Anthony Fauci. So it’s not just mistakes by other people. He indirectly gave them an exemption which allowed the research to happen and ultimately the pandemic. He bears some culpability for the leak of a virus from this lab because he funded it.”

Paul then noted what makes Fauci’s alleged lie before Congress unique.

“The sad thing about it is there’s never been a lie before Congress where we actually, where we can prove that someone lied by their own word,” he noted.

Paul added, “Usually somebody else came in and there’s some other evidence. We have Anthony Fauci in his own words admitting that he lied, and yet Merrick Garland, the most partisan attorney general in the history of the United States, is not doing a thing about it.”
