The arrogant Fauci was slammed by Senator Dr. Rand Paul (R-KY) during the hearing on the nation’s Covid response efforts on Tuesday.
Fauci testified and answered questions about the NIH’s role in funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.
Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate over Fauci’s connection with the funding of the Wuhan lab’s gain-of-function research that probably led to coronavirus.
Once again, Fauci rejected the claim that he funded gain-of-function research.
“There will be responsibility for those who funded the lab, including yourself.” Rand Paul said to him.
“I totally resent the lie that you are now propagating, Senator.” Fauci sharply responded.

As reported by The Gateway Pundit since early 2020, the COVID-19 outbreak likely originated from the Wuhan lab and the lab was funded by Dr. Fauci for years.
Dr. Fauci denied the claims under oath regardless of the fact that documents exist that prove the US was funding the Wuhan lab under his direction.
