( Jacob Bruns , Headline USA ) Unsurprisingly, Sen. Rand Paul , R-Ky., will not be decorating retiring COVID czar Anthony Fauci with laurels when he steps down from his post at the National Institutes for Health in December.
Sen. Paul clashed with Fauci during a hearing Wednesday for the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee—ostensibly to discuss the monkeypox virus.
Paul, a medical doctor by trade, has confronted Fauci repeatedly over lies he spread during the coronavirus pandemic —including his own role in helping to fund controversial gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology .
This time, he warned that investigators would be sure to look into royalties that Fauci recieved from pharmaceutical companies during the pandemic.
“We’ve been asking you, and you’ve refused to answer, whether the vaccine committees get royalties from the pharmaceutical companies,” Paul told Fauci.
“I asked you last time, and what was your response? ‘We don’t have to tell you,’” Paul continued. “We’ve demanded them through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and what have you said? ‘We are not going to tell you.’” SEN. PAUL TO DR. FAUCI: “When we get in charge, we’re gonna change the rules and you will have to divulge where you get your royalties from, from what companies and if anybody on the committee has a conflict of interest, we are going to learn about it. I promise you that.” pic.twitter.com/7r2Q89pnQR — Breaking911 (@Breaking911) September 14, 2022 Paul said the conflicts of interest would expose Fauci as a fraud when Republicans regain control of Congress, as many expect will be the case following November’s midterm elections.
“But I’ll tell you this, when we get in charge, we’re gonna change the rules and you will have to divulge where you get your royalties from, from what companies—and if anybody on the committee […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
