Rand Paul Rattles D.C with Power Move: ‘I’ve Taken the Extraordinary Step’ to ‘Press Criminal Charges against Fauci’

Republican Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has revealed that he’s been forced to take an “extraordinary step” to hold former White House senior medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci to account.

Paul said he’s contacted Matthew Graves, the U.S. attorney in Washington D.C., to prosecute Fauci for allegedly lying to Congress.

Fauci is accused of lying under oath about the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) involvement with gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China.

The WIV is widely regarded as the source of the lab leak that triggered the first Covid outbreak in Wuhan.

The senator revealed that he has faced severe partisan pushback while trying to hold Fauci to account for making false statements during his congressional testimony.

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Paul said: “I’ve taken the extraordinary step of going to the local U.S. attorney in D.C. to launch a probe and press criminal charges against Tony Fauci.

“The problem is there are partisans throughout the legal system.

“People are seeing that you don’t get prosecuted if you’re a Democrat in this administration, no matter what you do

“We have an incredibly partisan Attorney General Garland who’s refusing to act.

“So I’ve taken the extraordinary step of actually going to the local U.S. attorney in D.C. to see if he will act.

“I don’t think there has ever been a clearer case of perjury in the history of government testimony, and I don’t say that lightly.

“He said adamantly that the government never funded this gain of function research.”

According to The Daily Caller:

Paul said the “smoking gun” of the newest criminal referral is Fauci saying in private emails from 2020 that the NIH suspected coronavirus leaking from the lab because of gain-of-function research experiments.

The NIH admitted in 2021 it did fund gain-of-function research through the global nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance.

The senator originally issued the first criminal referral in July 2021 to the Department of Justice (DOJ) after the two got into a heated argument about gain-of-function research during a Senate hearing.

After the DOJ took no action on the referral, Paul filed a new one in July 2023 after the discovery of Fauci’s emails about gain-of-function.
