After only the first hearing to determine whether or not U.S. taxpayer funded gain-of-function research lead to the spread of COVID-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci can't hide from his lies any more. 



Senator Rand Paul summarized what came to light on day one during an interview with Fox's Jesse Watters: 
 
We learned that Dr. Fauci has been lying to us. The three scientists agreed that this was dangerous research. Two of the three absolutely said it was gain-of-function. The third said it was dangerous research and should have gone before a committee. When Dr. Fauci said, "Oh, we’ve reviewed this and the experts have looked at this, and said it’s not gain-of-function," even that wasn’t true. There was a committee that was formed after 2017 to look at this dangerous research. They didn't look at this research at all because they never reviewed it. So no one reviewed this to say it wasn't gain-of-function research. They didn't review it, period. 

We also learned from the scientists today that the committee that is supposed to review these viruses is secret. We don't know the names. We don't know that they ever meet, and we don't have any records of their meetings. It's top-secret. Congress is not allowed to know. So whether the committee actually exists, we're uncertain. We do know that they've met three times and there are thousands of gain-of-function research proposals. They've only met three times, they’ve only reviewed three projects. So we learned a lot of things, but I think we reconfirmed that Dr. Fauci is not being honest with us. Yes, the NIH funded gain-of-function research. Yes, it was dangerous. And yes, nobody looked over this. Nobody reviewed the research. Yes, a million people died. And there still seems to be a significant lack of curiosity on the part of Democrats. 

Sen. Paul has long accused Dr. Fauci about lying regarding the origins of COVID, and these hearings are further bolstering those allegations.

While most of us expected Sen. Paul's claims to be validated, those whose job it is to check the facts got it dead wrong once again. 

Just as recently as October of last year, the Washington Post's fact checker was rating is false that Fauci lied to Congress about gain-of-function research. In August of 2021, FactCheck.org defended Fauci, writing that "There’s no evidence that Fauci lied to Congress" as Sen. Paul had previously assered. Meanwhile over at PolitiFact, they personally interviewed Fauci last year to give him the chance to respond to Sen. Paul's allegations by lying more to the American public.
