Did Dr. Anthony Fauci perjure himself in a congressional hearing?
Reasonable people may differ on the answer to that question – but those dissenting may not know the backstory. In a tense, combative series of exchanges in Congress recently, libertarian firebrand Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) grilled Fauci about his consistently inconsistent COVID-19 messaging and the origins of the virus that has paralyzed the planet for more than a year.
America’s doctor adamantly insisted that the federal institutions over which he has presided for decades – National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) -- did not fund gain-of-function studies to increase the transmissibility, pathogenicity, and lethality of coronaviruses for potential use as bioweapons. Paul characterized that claim as “verifiably false.”
