Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul says he will make a criminal referral to the Department of Justice against Dr. Anthony Fauci.
During an interview Tuesday night on Fox News, Paul told host Sean Hannity that Fauci, the head of the infectious diseases department at NIH, lied to Congress about NIH funding sent to Wuhan, China.
“You kicked off your questioning of Dr. Fauci emphasizing federal law makes lying to Congress a felony punishable by up to five years in prison. Is it your belief based on the evidence, senator, that he lied before Congress and broke the law?” Hannity asked Paul.
“Yes, and I will be sending a letter to the Department of Justice asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to Congress,” Paul answered.
