Senator Rand Paul said Anthony Fauci is directly responsible for the deaths of millions of people by funding dangerous research.
During a Fox News appearance, Paul said: “Likely there is no public health figure who has made a greater error in judgment than Dr. Fauci.”
“The error of judgment was to fund gain of function research in a totalitarian country.”
Paul declared that Fauci funded “research that allowed them to create super viruses, that in all likelihood leaked into the public and caused seven million people to die.”
“This is right up there with decisions, some of them malevolent or military to kill millions of people,” The Senator added.
The Republican made the remarks after Fauci in a Washington Post interview, where he was labeled a “hero” and even complained about being a victim.
“It goes to judgment, talk about errors, you think he might apologize to the world… to support that kind of research then look the other way and say nothing to see here and to cover it up.”
“For the last two years, he’s been covering his tracks, but we’ve caught him red-handed, and he won’t get away,” Paul added.
“Historically [Fauci] will be remembered for one of the worst judgments in the history of modern medicine.”
Paul also mentioned his efforts to overturn the Biden Administration’s COVID vaccine mandate for military personnel.
“They deserve to have their religious freedom, as well as their medical choices and freedom to decide what goes into their body,” Paul noted.
“We know this, and this is a scientific fact, the vaccine does not prevent you from getting an infection, it doesn’t prevent you from transmitting an infection, and for young people, there isn’t significant evidence to show that it reduces the severity or hospitalization.”
“The military has become so ‘woke,’ and they’re demanding you get a vaccine that you don’t need, so something’s got to change,” the Senator further urged.
