Rand Paul: Fauci is lying about job status because he’s ‘worried about being indicted’

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said new information shows Anthony Fauci continues to work for the federal government in an effort to protect himself amid investigations into the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases’ handling of the coronavirus.

“There’s a massive cover-up going on, and the lead in all of the cover-up has been Fauci,” Paul told Hannity. “We now have information that he’s still working for the government, even though he says he’s retired.”

“It is my belief that he is worried about being indicted, and so he continues to work so he will get legal protection under the federal government,” Paul added. “This is wrong on every level of it, and we are going to get to the bottom of it.”

Paul said that as part of his investigation, he sent a letter requesting an explanation of “what the actual status of his employment is. Is he retired? Is he still getting a federal detail?”

The Kentucky senator added that he is “100% confident that Fauci lied” regarding the origin of the virus and his involvement in research taking place in Wuhan, China.

When asked about the risk of myocarditis as a result of the coronavirus vaccine, Paul said that the push for the vaccine is “really malpractice.”

“You have to weigh the risk and benefit. If you are over 65 or over 70, the risk of the disease, at least for the last couple years, has been much greater than any perceived or any real risk of the vaccine, I believe that,” Paul explained. “But if you are younger, the risks of the vaccine, even though they’re rare, can actually exceed the risk of the disease.”

“We’ve got universities mandating three vaccines,” Paul added. “I think that’s malpractice because the risk of the myocarditis increases with each vaccine. There’s a lot of compromises that could happen here, one vaccine, no vaccine if your kid’s already had it. But instead, the government says do as you’re told, don’t think about this, don’t listen to any dissent, just do as you are told. And that’s a recipe for bad medicine and really malpractice.”


Paul also recently blasted Fauci for using his position to “weaponize the government” in a cover-up regarding the origin of the coronavirus and profit financially as a result.

In September, watchdog group OpenTheBooks issued a report noting Fauci’s net worth just about doubled during the pandemic.
