Rand Paul Issues CHILLING Threat To Fauci — Day Of Reckoning Looms
(TargetLiberty.org) – Dr. Anthony Fauci has been a controversial figure throughout the pandemic. He could now face a more intensive investigation after a GOP senator threatened to pull out all the stops. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is fed up with Fauci’s attempts to bury the truth and told him as much right to his face.

On September 14, Fauci was testifying before the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee when Senator Paul asked about conflicts of interest between Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials and the pharma industry. Paul asked — not for the first time — if FDA members are paid royalties by drug companies who created the COVID vaccines. He reminded the White House medical adviser the last time he asked that question, Fauci replied, “We don’t have to tell you.”
If Paul gets his way, it’s all going to change. He’s already managed to get some information. In June, he told Fauci he learned thousands of royalty payments have gone to employees of the National Institutes of Health, where Fauci is a senior official, and pointed out he’d had to find that out through a Freedom of Information request.
Last Wednesday, he told Fauci that “when we get in charge, we’re gonna change the rules and you will have to divulge [the source of] your royalties.” Paul promised he was going to follow through. Fauci had nothing to say — and couldn’t even give a straight answer when Paul asked if he himself had ever received royalties from companies to which he’d paid grant money.
Should government officials be able to hide their financial interests like this, or is Paul right to push Fauci so hard? Reply to your email and let us know how you feel. We’d love to hear from you.
