Sen. Rand Paul has become Dr. Fauci’s worst nightmare.
He has exposed him for lying, and continues to fight back his agenda.
And Dr. Fauci is shaking with anger after what Rand Paul just did.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) infuriated the Left in recent weeks after he exposed that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded “gain of function” research at a lab in Wuhan, China that likely leaked the coronavirus into the world.
Fauci lied about the funding, only to be called out by Paul.
After that, Paul faced a series of threats, including a threatening package at his front door containing a white powder.
But Sen. Paul hasn’t stopped fighting.
And just this week he scored a huge win, ending federal funding for gain of function research in China, which was the research being conducted in the infamous Wuhan lab.
The Kentucky Senator filed an amendment to ban the research, and it passed on Tuesday in a historic vote.
“We don’t know whether the pandemic started in a lab in Wuhan or evolved naturally,” Paul said in a press release.
“While many still deny funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, experts believe otherwise. The passage of my amendment ensures that this never happens in the future. No taxpayer money should have ever been used to fund gain-of-function research in Wuhan, and now we permanently have put it to a stop,” he added.
Paul had allies in this fight, with a number of Republican Senators co-sponsoring Senate Amendment 2003, which prohibits the federal government from funding “any research project that may be reasonably anticipated to confer attributes to influenza, MERS, or SARS viruses such that the virus would have enhanced pathogenicity or transmissibility in mammals” in China.
The Senators co-sponsoring the important amendment were Ron Johnson (R-WI), Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), Roger Marshall (R-KS), Mike Braun (R-IN), and Thom Tillis (R-NC).
In the amendment, Dr. Fauci’s NIH was specifically named, as they were the worst offenders in funding this controversial research.
Paul called on the government to admit that the Wuhan lab was doing gain of function research with federal funds previously.
“Gain-of-function research, as you know, is juicing up naturally-occurring animal viruses to infect humans. To arrive at the truth, the U.S. government should admit that the Wuhan virology institute was experimenting to enhance the coronavirus’ ability to infect humans,” Paul said.
Since then, it has been proven, and this amendment was a no-brainer move following that revelation.
