Rand Paul Takes Well-Deserved Victory Lap After Documents Prove Fauci Lied His A** off to Him – Opinion

Rand Paul (Republican from Kentucky) and Anthony Fauci (Democrat COVID poster). It was a thrilling experience to witness the Senate hearings. Democrats ridiculed Paul’s credentials; Paul is an ophthalmologist, Fauci is an “emerging and infectious diseases” expert. Paul said Fauci had lied to him about funds for gain-of-function research in the Wuhan lab. Fauci was furious and called Paul a fool. In the end, Paul was right — and Fauci was still a liar.

We reported Wednesday that the National Institutes of Health confirmed the claim by Fauci, National Institute of Allergens and Infectious Diseases Director (NIAID), to Paul at a May 11th hearing. Fauci disputed the claim that the NIH or the NIAID had ever supported gain-of function research at Wuhan Institute of Virology. We now know this was pure crap.

The best thing about this story is that Paul was aware at the time Fauci was lying. Fauci knew Paul was lying. Paul also knew Fauci that he knew Paul was lying. It’s all good, gang.

Consider the following: 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.

According to Daily Caller’s report, EcoHealth Alliance received a grant by the NIH. However, the NIH corrected the error and admitted that EcoHealth Alliance had violated the terms of grant funding gain-of function research.

The NIH described an experiment conducted by EcoHealth Alliance that “was testing if spike proteins from naturally occurring bat coronaviruses circulating in China were capable of binding to the human ACE2 receptor in a mouse model,” the letter reads. “All other aspects of the mice, including the immune system, remain unchanged.”

Richard H Ebright, Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at the Board of Governors tweeted:

NIH rectifies untruthful statements made by Director Collins, NIH Director and Director of NIAID Fauci that NIH has not supported gain-of-function research at Wuhan.

NIH has determined that EcoHealth Alliance broke the terms and conditions of NIH grant AI110964.

Oops, Keebler Elf.

Several mice in the experiment infected with the “SHC014 WIV 1 bat coronavirus became sicker than those infected with the W1V1 bat coronavirus,” the letter dated Oct. 20 continues, noted Daily Caller. “This was an unexpected result of the research, as opposed to something that the researchers set out to do.”

Here’s more:

The letter explains how the NIH reviewed the research prior to giving the funds and determined the research did not involve “enhanced pathogens of pandemic potential” because the bat viruses had not been shown to infect humans and therefore the research was not subject to departmental review.

Still, the NIH said they did include specific terms and conditions that outlined criteria for another review, such as requiring EcoHealth Alliance to report even just “one log increase in growth,” which would trigger a second review.

According to the letter, EcoHealth Alliance failed to submit their findings in accordance with the grant.

As noted by Daily Caller, The NIH claims the “published genomic data demonstrate that the bat coronaviruses studied under the NIH grant to EcoHealth Alliance, Inc. and sub-award to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) are not and could not have become SARS-CoV-2.”

It was there. Paul realized it when Fauci confronted him in July.

“Dr. Fauci, as you are aware, it is a crime to lie to Congress,” Paul said during a July congressional hearing.

Daily Caller transcribed his conversation:

“Viruses that in nature only infect animals were manipulated in the Wuhan Lab to gain the function of infecting humans. This research is consistent with the definition of research that the NIH claimed was affected by the pauses in 2014-2017 in funding gain-of-function research. But the NIH failed to recognize this, defines it away, and it never came under any scrutiny.”

Fauci got unglued and fired back.

“Sen. Paul, I don’t know what you’re talking about. You do not know what you are talking about.”

Ah! But Sen. Paul Did you know?He was talking about. That’s exactly what he was referring to.

Paul again accused Fauci of lying “dozens of times” during a September interview on “Hannity” while discussing a report about the NIH’s funding of gain-of-function research, as Daily Caller noted.

On Wednesday, the senator from Kentucky got his sweet “I told you so” revenge.
