Mr Cowthorne, 25, said the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases should be held accountable for being “hostage.” Communist Party of China“And for lying to Congress.
There is no evidence that any of these claims are true, and the House of Representatives does not have the power to prosecute, which does take place in the judiciary.
“I will tell you that when we take the majority in 2022, I will make sure that the consequences are addressed,” Mr Cowthorne told Ms. Ellis. “We want to bring this guy to justice with full force of law, because I’m going to tell you to lie to the American people, to get your name on the news, just to see your face on the covers of books, to get famous. or luck, I tell you, Dr. Anthony Fauci deserves neither fame nor fortune. “
Mr. Paul indicated on Tuesday that he will ask Ministry of Justice to prosecute Dr. Fauci after a senator accused an infectious disease expert of lying to Congress.
“I will send a letter to the Justice Department asking for criminal charges because he lied to Congress. We have scientists who will line up in dozens to say that the research he funded was aimed at improving functionality, ”Paul told Fox News.
Dr. Paul said that Dr. Fauci “does this because it is in his own interest to cover his tracks and hide his connection with [the] Wuhan laboratory “.
Functionality enhancement refers to research done on the virus to develop vaccines and other medical instruments. Dr. Fauci denies that the National Institutes of Health is funding research to increase functionality in Wuhan and refutes Mr. Paul’s claims.
“Senator Paul, to be honest, you do not understand what you are talking about, and I want to say this officially. You do not understand what you are talking about … If someone is lying here, it is you,” Dr. Fauci said during a fiery conversation Tuesday.
“I want to thank Rand Paul, he has always been a champion of justice, always a champion of freedom,” Mr Cowthorne said Thursday. “I consider his appeal to the Ministry of Justice quite reasonable. You can just go back and very simply look at excerpts from Dr. Fauci’s speech in May or even in the months since then, and you can tell that he lied outright to Congress. “
“When Dr. Rand Paul gave him the opportunity to withdraw his claims, he refused. And then when Rand Paul started pushing him even harder and said there would be consequences for those responsible, I’m not sure if you noticed … you see his hands start to shake uncontrollably. “
“A lot of people say, ‘Oh, this is uncontrollable rage.’ No, it’s fear. Dr. Fauci knows that he was a pawn in the Chinese Communist Party, ”said Cowthorn, without providing any evidence. He also claimed that Dr. Fauci is funding “militaristic research” on how to make the animal virus “more transmissible to humans.”
He said that he did not know what the appeal to the Ministry of Justice would lead to, referring to the fact that it was under control. Biden administration.
