Rand Paul Promises GOP-led Senate Will Investigate Fauci: ‘We’ll Go After Every One of His Records’

Expect Dr. Rand Paul to go after Dr. Fauci to investigate him formally and thoroughly if the GOP wins the midterm elections in November.

In his most recent interview with the conservative podcast host Lisa Boothe, Rand Paul revealed his plans for the investigation, saying, “If we win in November, if I’m chairman of a committee, if I have subpoena power, we’ll go after every one of his records,” Paul said in an interview with podcaster Lisa Boothe.

“We’ll have an investigator go through this piece-by-piece because we don’t need this to happen again.”

Senator Rand Paul, a Representative from Kentucky, has always been critical of Dr. Fauci since the advent of the pandemic. He has publicly called out Dr. Fauci for allegedly being responsible for the spread of the Coronavirus from Wuhan to the world.

He believes like some other people GOP representatives in power, that Dr. Fauci deliberately funded research in a virology lab in China, which lead to the ‘leak’ of the virus from the same lab due to a safety lapse or some dark intentions. 

GOP Passionate for Probes Against the Biden Administration

It is not uncommon for public representatives to investigate people in power through subpoenas and other committee practices. Usually, this helps in the process of accountability, yet there are some obvious advantages involved here.

The GOP stands to benefit from the narrative put out by the Republican Senator. Numerous probes into the works of the Biden administration are already planned by the Republicans if they manage to turn the current 50-50 Senate representation into their favor this November. 

If the GOP wins back the Congress in 2022, there will be an “onslaught of Biden probes”. They will be looking into the paperwork and other legalese, the Republicans are hoping that they find some deliberate errors or blunders made by the Democrats. This might help them to gather some material for campaigning in the next Presidential Elections.

Dr. Fauci’s Frustration – Death Threats and Hate

Dr. Fauci is frustrated by the way things are going. According to him, he has worked day and night to put forward a response against a novel virus as the White House’s chief medical advisor,  and the top infectious disease expert.

America’s COVID response has been formulated by him and his team. Yet, he continues to be maligned by the Republicans. He was visibly frustrated at the latest Senate hearing on Tuesday, in which he went after both Rand Paul and Sen. Roger Marshall. He accused Rand Paul of having political gains from campaigning against him.

Dr. Fauci alleged in a pointed tone that Rand Paul was spreading misinformation and hate against him.

He said, “What happens when he gets out and accuses me of things that are completely untrue, all of a sudden that mindless the crazies out there, and I have threats upon my life, harassment of my family, and my children will have seen phone calls because people are lying about me”.

” This happens all the time. You attack me with absolutely no shred of evidence of anything you say. So I would like to make something clear to the committee: you’re doing this for political reasons.”

Dr. Fauci then went on to describe how Dr. Rand Paul is allegedly cashing in from the hate that he has spread against Fauci. He continued, “So I asked myself, ‘Why would Senator want to do this?’ So, go to Rand Paul’s website.

And you see, ‘Fire Dr. Fauci’ with a little box that says, ‘contribute here,’ you can do $5, $10, $20, $100. So you are making a catastrophic epidemic for your political gain.”

Argument With Sen. Roger Marshall

Later that day, Dr. Fauci was seen confronting Sen. Roger Marshall. The Kansas Republican had alleged that Dr. Fauci was withholding his financial disclosure forms from the public, to which Dr. Fauci responded that his financial information had been made public for 4 decades. He told the Senator that he was extraordinarily misinformed.

Dr. Fauci went as far as calling the Senator a “moron” after the brutal back-and-forth exchange took place.

Dr. Rand Paul’s Opinion on the Spread of Covid-19

An interesting thing to note is that Sen. Dr. Rand Paul is a libertarian and an ophthalmologist, an eye specialist, yet he has always been concerned about how the virus spread across the globe. He has also been seen arguing about masks and vaccinations.

In a Fox News opinion piece, Dr. Rand Paul wrote that he does not know whether the virus originated in a lab but that his point was to investigate the truth about the virus as he fears that the government bureaucrats “brutally squashed” any attempts to discover the origin of the virus because it conflicted with their self-interests.

That is why Dr. Rand Paul aims to investigate this matter once he comes into power as the head of Senate Health Committee, for which he is one of the candidates as Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.) retires.
