Sen. Rand Paul begged to differ Thursday with a Washington Post interview characterizing Dr. Anthony Fauci as a “hero” and a victim, contending evidence shows the retiring director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases funded research directly responsible for a pandemic blamed for the deaths of millions worldwide.
Fauci funded gain of function research at a Chinese Communist Party-run lab in Wuhan, creating “super viruses, that in all likelihood leaked into the public and caused 7 million people to die,” he told Fox News host Jesse Watters.
“This is right up there with decisions, some of them malevolent or military, to kill millions of people,” Paul said.
In the Washington Post interview, Fauci said he couldn’t think of anything he would “do over,” but Paul insisted the Biden health adviser who has led the NIAID for nearly 40 years owes the world an apology.
“For the last two years he’s been covering his tracks, but we’ve caught him red-handed and he won’t get away,” Paul said.
“Historically, he will be remembered for one of the worst judgments in the history of modern medicine.”
The Kentucky lawmaker also addressed the Biden administration, under Fauci’s counsel, maintaining its COVID vaccine mandate on military personnel despite the ineffectiveness of the shots.
“We know this, and this is a scientific fact, the vaccine does not prevent you from getting an infection, it doesn’t prevent you from transmitting an infection, and for young people there isn’t significant evidence to show that it reduces the severity or hospitalization,” he said.
In June, the “fully vaccinated” and twice-boosted NIAID director was diagnosed with COVID-19. Last week, the Washington Post reported “a majority of Americans dying from the coronavirus received at least the primary series of the vaccine.”
Paul said the military “has become so ‘woke’ and they’re demanding you get a vaccine that you don’t need, so something’s got to change.”

Paul is among seven senators who have vowed to withhold support for Defense Department funding if the Democrat-led chamber won’t vote on ending the COVID-19 vaccination mandate for service members.
Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced in August 2021 the COVID-19 vaccine would become mandatory for all service members on active duty or in the Ready Reserve, including the National Guard.
See the interview with Paul:
Amid evidence that the U.S. government funded research that made coronaviruses transmissible among humans and more lethal, federal health officials, including Fauci, have pushed the theory that the pandemic had a natural origin, “spilling over” from animals.
Fauci, in fact, according to emails, was part of an effort that began early in the pandemic to dismiss proponents of the lab-leak theory as conspiracy theorists.
But an interim report released in late October of a Senate investigation has concluded there is “substantial” evidence the virus that causes COVID-19 leaked from a lab in China.
Last week, during seven hours of questioning in a landmark lawsuit alleging the federal government colluded with social media companies to censor speech, Fauci confirmed the communist Chinese government convinced him to press for the crippling COVID-19 lockdowns, according to attorneys and plaintiffs who were at the deposition.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?
Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”
Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
