Dr. Anthony Fauci took down Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) after Paul accused the medical researcher of lying before Congress on May 11 on whether the National Institutes of Health funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China:
Senator Paul, you do not know what you’re talking about, quite frankly, and I want to say that officially. You do not know what you’re talking about… I totally resent the lie you are now propagating, senator. Those viruses are molecularly impossible to result in SARS-CoV-2 … You are implying what we did was responsible for the deaths of individuals. If anybody is lying here, senator, it is you.
