Dr. Fauci SNAPS at Sen. Paul saying “I Represent Science” Regrets Immediately

Following the ongoing congress hearing on Covid-19 Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have grilled Dr. Fauci over gain-of-function research.  The hearing that have lasted this long but yet Fauci is a free man.

However, in the latest hearing  Dr. Anthony Fauci escalated his spat with some lawmakers over the nation’s COVID-19 response by claiming they oppose “science.”

Fauci has served as the face of the government’s pandemic response, including the outbreak of the HIV/Aids and some other outbreaks over the years  putting him at odds with lawmakers who remain critical of that response. Sen. Rand Paul, has frequently sparred with Fauci over various statements and policies the president’s chief medical adviser has made or endorsed.

Most recently, Paul blasted Fauci for “obfuscating the truth” about the National Institutes of Health funding gain-of-function research after the organization admitted in a letter to House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer, R-Ky., that a “limited experiment” was indeed conducted.

Fauci, during an interview with “Face the Nation,” dismissed opposition from such lawmakers as “noise,” saying they’re “really criticizing science.”

“It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity,” Paul wrote.

Fauci also dismissed a suggestion from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, that he should be prosecuted by the attorney general over his comments about the gain-of-function research. Cruz tweeted that “It’s a crime to knowingly lie to Congress, so I asked AG Garland if he’d appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Fauci.”

Fauci laughed at the suggestion, asking, “What happened on January 6th, senator?” He said “you’d have to be asleep” not to believe that Republicans are trying to “scapegoat” him.

In a five-tweet Twitter thread issued in response to Fauci’s comment against him on Sunday, Cruz excoriated Fauci as an “unelected technocrat who has distorted science and facts in order to exercise authoritarian control over millions of Americans.”

Saying that Fauci “lives in a liberal world,” Cruz went on to cite the section of the U.S. Code that both he and Paul allege Fauci violated when he testified before a Senate Committee in May that “the NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

Cruz also blasted Fauci for attempting to deflect lawmakers’ criticism against him by resorting to “ad hominem insults parroting Democrat talking points,” and concluded by reiterating that the DOJ should prosecute him.

As crazy as this may sound, why is Fauci still responding from the comfort of his chair? Why is he not being treated as a criminal and held responsible or this whole hearing is going to end like that of Hilary Clinton over Benghazi?
