During the first hearing to determine whether U.S. taxpayer-funded gain-of-function research contributed to the spread of Covid, Paul reconfirmed that “Dr. Fauci is not being honest with us,” and “yes, the NIH funded gain-of-function research.”
Not one Democrat showed up to the hearing held by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Subcommittee— something Paul questioned why there is significant lack of curiosity from the left. That alone should sound alarms.
Following the hearing, Paul joined Jesse Watters Primetime to stress how a committee formed in 2017 to investigate gain-of-function research blatantly looked past its responsibilities, ignoring the research.
