Calls for Fauci to be JAILED for 'lying dozens of times to Congress about Wuhan lab research funding'

ANTHONY Fauci is facing calls to be jailed after he was accused of "lying dozens of times to Congress about research funding at a Wuhan lab."

Senator Rand Paul said the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases should be incarcerated for five years.

Republican Paul told Sean Hannity: "He has definitely lied to the American public, and he should be held responsible." 

He added: "I don’t think Biden Department of Justice will do anything with it.

"But it is very dangerous to have public officials who we need to have trust in coming and lying to us.

"He has lied dozens of times. Usually he tells us it’s for our own good.

"It’s a felony punishable by five years in jail."


In a heated exchange with Senator Paul during his congressional testimony in July, Dr. Fauci denied that his Agency provided funding for “gain-of-function” research, which modifies biological agents, at China’s Wuhan lab.

But documents, obtained by The Intercept and first reported this week, seem to contradict Dr Fauci’s claims.

Senator Paul of Kentucky then shared the bombshell article on social media.

He had has even asked Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate.

The documents appear to show the National Institute of Health did give grants to a nonprofit that funneled federal funds to the Wuhan Institute of Virology for bat coronavirus research, as reported by the New York Post.

According to the documents, the US government gave $3.1million to health organization EcoHealth Alliance which went into research on bat coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.


"Surprise surprise – Fauci lied again," said Senator Paul on Tuesday. "And I was right about his agency funding novel Coronavirus research at Wuhan."

The grant proposal, filed with Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and included in the newly-released documents, was for a project named “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence."

The project included the testing of thousands of bat samples for novel coronaviruses, and nearly $600,000 of the $3.1million in US funding was used in part to find and alter bat coronaviruses that could infect humans.

“Fieldwork involves the highest risk of exposure to SARS or other CoVs, while working in caves with high bat density overhead and the potential for fecal dust to be inhaled," reads the proposal.


The grant was awarded between 2014 and 2019, when funding was renewed before being suspended by the Trump administration in 2020.

Dr. Fauci reportedly even pushed back before relenting on a Trump White House directive to cancel the National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to the nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance.

Meanwhile, a federal watchdog is set to "conduct an extensive audit reviewing how NIH monitored selected grants," according to Department of Health and Human Services inspector general spokesperson Tesia Williams.
