SMOKING GUN: Fauci Caught In Gain-Of-Function Lie… Rand Paul Demands Investigation

Written by Wes Walker on September 8, 2021

A FOIA request from the Intercept vindicated what Rand Paul has been saying about Gain-of-function research all along. Meaning, Fauci has been caught lying to Congress.

That happens to be a federal crime.

Perjury and lying to the federal government are both crimes that could land a person in some serious legal trouble. If convicted of either crime, a person could be looking at up to five years in prison. This means that if a person is found to have lied during a congressional hearing or investigation, or simply lied to an FBI or other federal agent, actual jail time could result. —FindLaw

We have seen several very publicized clashes between Fauci and Paul in Congressional hearings in which each man has made accusations against the other. Seeing as he is medically trained, with a background that enables him to read and understand studies cited, they have clashed over the finer points of studies, procedures, and language.

With Paul, Fauci hasn’t been able to hide behind his smug smile and ‘superior expertise’ that would intimidate others for whom such technical research becomes an inscrutable wall of meaningless text on a page.

The clashes — especially those about the specific question of funding gain-of-function research in China — have been remarkable and somehow left both sides claiming their guy owned the other guy.

For anyone needing a reminder about those clashes, here are some stories we ran on that dispute … in chronological order.

Now, with a newly-released FOIA, Fauci has run out of room to dance his way around this issue. It looks like he’s been KNOWINGLY slinging BS to Congress this whole time.

The 900 pages of records obtained by the news outlet address the work of EcoHealth Alliance, a U.S-based nonprofit group that received federal grant money toward bat coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

“The bat coronavirus grant provided EcoHealth Alliance with a total of $3.1 million, including $599,000 that the Wuhan Institute of Virology used in part to identify and alter bat coronaviruses likely to infect humans,” the news outlet reported.

…Paul sent a referral to the Justice Department after Fauci rejected the assertion he lied to Congress during testimony in May when he denied the NIH funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab. Fauci, who has been the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases since 1984, said at the May 11 Senate hearing that the NIH “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

…”The documents make it clear that assertions by the NIH Director, Francis Collins, and the NIAID Director, Anthony Fauci, that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement at WIV are untruthful,” Ebright wrote at the end of the thread. —WashingtonExaminer

This is awkward. After all, it was only last year that people actually wanted Fauci to be named ‘sexiest man alive‘. Ugh.

First Avenatti, now Fauci.

Has anyone else noticed a trend about the empty-suit ‘heroes’ the left embraces to ‘own’ the Right have a way of flaming out in spectacular fashion?

Not that we seriously expect the DOJ — now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the DNC — to take any action against their beloved St. Fauci.

But his lies about gain of function research funding sent to Wuhan are now officially a matter of public record. Any honest historian to come along someday wanting to chronicle what happened will have access to that.

Not the biggest of wins, perhaps. But you gotta start somewhere.

More importantly, Biden’s faced with the problem of having a proven liar as the face of his COVID response. If he complains there is any problem with ‘hesitancy’, he’ll have only himself to blame.

He’s using a man who has repeatedly lied to the people as the voice of authority. Even Joe might be able to see how stupid THAT plan is.
