Sen. Rand Paul On Gain-of-Function Hearing: Fauci Is Lying to Us
Sarah Arnold / Townhall Tipsheet
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is not letting Dr. Anthony Fauci disappear quietly without questions regarding the Wuhan Coronavirus’s origin being answered. 

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.

Democrats say they’ve reached agreement on economic package

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats have agreed to eleventh-hour changes to their marquee economic legislation, they announced late Thursday, clearing the major impediment to pushing one of President Joe Biden’s paramount election-year priorities through the chamber in coming days.

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., a centrist seen as the pivotal vote in the 50-50 chamber, said in a statement that she had agreed to revamping some of the measure’s tax and energy provisions and was ready to “move forward” on the bill.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he believed his party’s energy, environment, health and tax compromise “will receive the support of the entire” Democratic membership of the chamber. His party needs unanimity and Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote to move the measure through the Senate over certain solid opposition from Republicans, who say the plan’s tax boosts and spending would worsen inflation and damage the economy.
