Rand Paul, Fauci again spar over Wuhan lab funding

Sen. Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci sparred at a Senate hearing Tuesday, this time over the funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Asked by Paul if he supported funding by the NIH of the lab in Wuhan, Fauci shot back at him: ’You are entirely, entirely and completely incorrect. The NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.’

Fauci directly funded that lab over 2 years ago. Hes part of the problem especially wince he admitted to lying multiple times

Fauci showed a few liar tells here. He started with "we do not now fund" and Paul called him out on when they did, because it was a couple years ago. Apparently the NIH funded people who funded the research, and that extra step means they did not fund them, according to his logic. Another tell was (paraphrasing) "Dr. Baric doesn't do gain of function research and if he does, it is according to guidelines." It's pretty bad when you don't even finish the sentence before you start softening the blow of the lie. I am glad that he at least publicly seems to be open to continuing research into what was going on at this lab. We really need to move past the idea that the lab leak hypothesis is some thoroughly debunked partisan conspiracy.

Word semantics. The funding came from the NIAID with Fouci at the head, routed through a EcoHealth Alliance grant which paid the Wuhan Institute of Virology $598,500 over five years to study bat coronaviruses, including from that colony of bats that lives 800 miles from Wuhan.

No one has been as inconsistent as Fauci. No one has been wrong more often then Fauci.… He is useless. Trump should have fired him

So was everything I told by the news in the first months of covid a lie because Fauci said so? He has lied to the public on numerous occasions about masks and social distancing, I don't agree the he could be a reliable source

He was asked and he responded we do not fund gain of function research at Wuhan lab. If you have proof he's lying get him for perjury. Do it now what are you waiting for?

A man named Chris Martinson made a video linking gain a function to dr Fauci over a year ago. A said it then and I'll say it again. Once the smoke has cleared and the fires burned out the truth will come, but it wont be met with thunderous applause for justice or a sigh of relief that those responsible are held accountable. Instead it will be another article sweeped under the rug with people not even having enough will or care to click a link. 3 million people died and we caused it .

So, why the Fauci hysteria ? If he funneled funds to a lab making dangerous research, I doubt it was because he has personal interest there. Look for the source . Military ?
