Documents obtained by the Washington Examiner revealed that Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has asked Attorney General Merrick Garland to criminally investigate Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden. Paul has sent the criminal referral to Garland because he argues that Fauci lied to Congress when he said at a Senate testimony that the National Institutes of Health never funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Examiner reported Saturday. “I write to urge the United States Department of Justice to open an investigation into testimony made to the United States Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions by Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on May 11, 2021,” Paul’s letter to Garland, obtained by the Examiner, stated. Paul had announced his intention to seek the criminal investigation on Tuesday. On May 11, Paul and Fauci had a rough exchange where Paul questioned Fauci about whether he supported NIH funding of research at the advanced biology institute in Wuhan, China, which included, according to Paul, “gain of function” research.
