Even though Dr. Anthony Fauci has decided to resign, charges of crimes against humanity remain a possibility, and Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is not keeping quiet about his plans to attack Fauci and other government health officials.
“One way or another, if we are in the majority, we will subpoena his records and he will testify in the Senate under oath.”
Paul is not the only one who wants an investigation into Fauci, though. Now all they need is for Americans to cast Republican ballots in the upcoming election.
Since 1984, Fauci has held the position of head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Last year, he was appointed chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden.
Early in the pandemic, Fauci, along with the CDC, called for Americans to socially distance and wear masks, but he also cautioned about the potential dangers of protracted lockdowns. He became a lightning rod for criticism from Republicans, especially from then-President Donald Trump.
Paul has been one of Fauci’s sharpest critics, and the two have repeatedly clashed in Senate hearings when Fauci testified,” according to a January article in The Hill.
Paul, a physician, has insisted repeatedly that Fauci erred by failing to take into account people’s prior infections when evaluating the COVID-19 vaccines, and Rand is not engaging in political posturing and excusing Fauci.
Rand criticized Fauci once more during a recent hearing for the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Commission by alleging that the members of the government vaccine committee had not reported if they had received any royalties from the vaccine manufacturers.
Further, Paul claims that if the GOP regains control of the Senate in the midterm elections in November, Republicans would open an inquiry into that issue.
Paul replied, “We’ve been asking you and you refused to answer whether anybody on the vaccine committees gets royalties from the pharmaceutical companies.
Paul was told by Fauci “They are not my committees”. Fauci recently made the announcement that he would step down from his positions as president Joe Biden’s main medical advisor and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the end of this year.
“I am announcing today that I will be stepping down from the positions of Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Chief of the NIAID Laboratory of Immunoregulation, as well as the position of Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden. I will leave these positions in December of this year to pursue the next chapter of my career,” stated Fauci.
In a report for Conservative Brief, Martin Walsh stated:
Biden released a statement praising Fauci, saying he had an “unwavering” commitment to the work and an “unparalleled spirit, energy, and scientific integrity.”
“Because of Dr. Fauci’s many contributions to public health, lives here in the United States and around the world have been saved. As he leaves his position in the U.S. Government, I know the American people and the entire world will continue to benefit from Dr. Fauci’s expertise in whatever he does next,” according to Biden.
Biden continued, “Whether you’ve met him personally, he has touched all Americans’ lives with his work. I extend my deepest thanks for his public service. The United States of America is stronger, more resilient, and healthier because of him.”

Copied verbatim from the bible. Frighteningly accurate alignment with current occurrences. Must see.
Given that Republicans have stated they intend to open an inquiry into Fauci if they regain control of Congress in November’s midterm elections, the timing is intriguing.
Paul has often stated that if the Republicans reclaim the Senate, he intends to subpoena Fauci’s files.
“If we win in November, if I’m chairman of a committee, if I have subpoena power, we’ll go after every one of [Fauci’s] records,” Paul declared. “We’ll have an investigator go through this piece-by-piece because we don’t need this to happen again.”
Similar claims were made by Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan, who asserted that Republicans will “uncover” what Fauci knew on the causes of the coronavirus pandemic.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
Republican Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, an ally to Jordan, released Fauci’s financial records. The records appear to show that Fauci and his wife have a combined net worth of around $10 million.
Records also showed that Fauci and his wife were paid tens of thousands of dollars to attend four galas and ceremonies — three of them virtual — during the pandemic. CONTINUE READING…
