No one has gone after Dr. Fauci more aggressively than Senator Rand Paul, and he recently made a prediction.
Paul said that if Republicans take back the House or the Senate, that Fauci woould retire.
He also vowed to investigate Fauci over his gain of function research.
He made the comments on his father Ron Paul’s Freedom Report.
Real Clear Politics provides a transcript:
RON PAUL: How big of an issue will Fauci be in next year’s election?
RAND PAUL: I think huge. One of the things I have told people is that if I win in 2022, I will be chairman of a committee in the Senate. We will use the subpoena power to bring forth all the records. Right now they send us records — if we ask about their discussions, covering up where the virus came from, its origins in the lab — they white it all out, they redact all the information and send us a blank piece of paper and they won’t tell us about their conversations. We’ll get to the root of everything.
I predict this. If Republicans take over either the House or the Senate, Fauci will retire. And that would be the best thing for the country because he’s been so damaging because it’s not just through force of law. All these blue state governors listen to him and think that it’s science to close a restaurant at 10 o’clock at night or to say that we have to have 25% of patrons. There’s no evidence that any of the mitigation, any of the rules, and mandates changed the trajectory of the virus at all.
Here’s the video. It’s cued to start at the 25:42 mark:
If Republicans take back the House and Senate, they should create a special COVID investigative committee and put Rand Paul in charge of it.
