Adm. Giroir Goes After Fauci for Calling Sen. Rand Paul a Liar: His Questions ‘Deserve to be Answered’

By

As most people know by now Senator Rand Paul and Dr. Anthony Fauci got into a heated exchange yesterday in which Fauci called Rand Paul a “liar” for claiming the NIH funded gain of function experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

During an interview with Brian Kilmeade Brett Giroir, former four-star Admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, gave his take on the Fauci / Rand Paul exchange from the perspective of someone who has had to sit through similar hearings.

“It was a concerning exchange and I do believe probably Dr. Fauci was hiding behind a technical definitions of what the NIH might consider, quote, gain of function research. What they did fund was exactly what Rand Paul said,” Giroir said.

“They funded researchers to go in the hundreds of miles away into the back of bat caves, extract dangerous viruses from bats that have never been seen by humans before, and bring them to a city of 10 million people in the Wuhan lab.”

“Next, they chopped up those viruses and created new Frankenstein viruses to see if they could infect human cells. That that may not technically be quote gain of function research but it’s dangerous research and senator Paul’s questions deserve to be answered.”
