Republican Sen. Rand Paul called for Dr. Anthony Fauci to be removed from his position leading the Biden administration’s coronavirus response, saying he “in all likelihood has been lying to us.”
Fauci “shouldn’t be in part of government” because he has been “unwise, naive, and in all likelihood has been lying to us,” Paul said during an interview with Newsmax TV’s White House Correspondent Emerald Robinson.
Paul said the recently released Fauci emails vindicate him and show that he, not Fauci, was right about different aspects of the pandemic.
“One of the email chains is between Peter Daszak of EcoHealth and Ralph Baric saying we need to get people to sign a letter saying we shouldn’t … you know, that there was no lab leak. We need to get all this organized, but maybe we shouldn’t sign it, so it looks as if this were an independent effort.
