RedState: Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Democrat COVID poster boy Anthony Fauci. The Senate hearing battles were epic. Democrats ridiculed Paul’s credentials; Paul is an ophthalmologist, Fauci is an “emerging and infectious diseases” expert. Paul accused Fauci of lying about funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab; Fauci lost his cool and called Paul a liar. In the end, Paul was right — and Fauci was still a liar.
As we reported Wednesday, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) confirmed that Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergens and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), lied to Paul during a hearing on May 11th, 2021. Fauci vehemently insisted that neither the NIH nor the NIAID ever funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Now we know that was a complete crock of crap.
And what I believe to be the best part, Paul knew Fauci was lying, at the time. Fauci knew Paul knew he was lying, and Paul knew Fauci knew Paul knew he was lying. That, gang, is good stuff.
Given the crap Rand Paul took from the Democrats and their sock puppets in the “mainstream” media, the Kentucky senator on Wednesday took a yuuge victory lap. Damn right he did — I would’ve done exactly the same thing, although most likely in front of CNN headquarters or Don Lemon’s house.
“‘I told you so’ doesn’t even begin to cover it here,” Paul tweeted. MORE
