(WATCH) Rand Paul Says Fauci ‘Should Go To Prison For Five Years’ (VIDEO)

On Thursday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) called for the imprisonment of Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, for “lying” to Congress about his department’s financing of gain of function research.

In an interview with Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Paul claimed Fauci should be sentenced to five years in jail. He also expressed his doubt that Attorney General Merrick Garland would “objectively look at Fauci’s lying,” saying he doesn’t “have a lot of hope”.

In addition, Paul added, “we’ve referred him to the Department of Justice, but then again, Merrick Garland is the one now going after parents that go to school board meetings, so I don’t have a lot of hope that Merrick Garland is objectively looking at Fauci’s lying”. He continued, “But Fauci should go to prison for five years for lying to Congress. They have prosecuted other people. They have selectively gone after Republicans, but in no way will they do anything about him lying. But he should be prosecuted for lying”.

Paul continued to tear into Fauci: “[A]t the very least the taken out of position because I think he cost people lives through misinformation. Every time he tells people, ‘Oh, wear a cloth mask,’ he is actually endangering people. If you are around someone with COVID, you don’t want to wear a mask because they don’t work”.
