Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) suggested on Thursday that Dr. Anthony Fauci should face perjury charges for “lying under oath” to Congress about the origins of COVID-19.
The Texas Republican made the comments condemning President Biden’s former chief medical advisor at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, just days after the Wall Street Journal reported that the Department of Energy now believes that COVID-19 originated from a Chinese laboratory.
“There has been no person who has done more to destroy trust in the scientific and medical community than Dr. Anthony Fauci, who told millions of Americans lies willingly, knowingly, glibly and supremely arrogantly,” Cruz told the crowd at CPAC.
“In any sane system, he would be prosecuted for lying under oath, and he would go to jail for lying under oath to Congress,” Cruz said.
Fauci — who retired at the end of last year after more than five decades in government – has long dismissed the so-called “lab-leak theory” of COVID-19’s origin, calling it at one point a “shiny object that will go away in times.”
On numerous occasions he also put forth that “the most likely origin” of the virus “is from an animal species to a human,” and has claimed that it was “molecularly impossible” for the viruses being worked on at the Wuhan Institute of Virology to have mutated into the one responsible for the pandemic.
Fauci has also been accused by Republicans of lying about funding the National Institutes of Health provided the Wuhan laboratory for “gain-of-function” research.
Cruz doubted on Thursday that the Biden administration’s Justice Department would bring up charges against the former head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, calling it “0.000%” likely and deriding the DOJ under Biden as “lawless.”
However, Cruz vowed the the Republican-led House would investigate Fauci to figure out how he allegedly “misled the American people and the corruption that drove that.”
Fauci should be pulling a jail sentence for much more than that.
Anthony Fauci, a corrupt, self aggrandizing schizoid, who should be in prison for all the crimes he and his NIH committed. Fauci has some serious ethical issues. He also made the fatuous claim that HIV/AIDS would explode in the heterosexual population.
Fauci’s NIH spent thousands of dollars on Frankenstein operations, grafting scalps from aborted fetuses on rats and mice and conducting cruel experiments on dogs, monkeys, and children. He and HHS officials discussed how to enforce vaccines by exploiting viruses from China. He funded the ChiComs’ creation of a bioweapon in a military lab. First, he denied the origin then he pushed a toxic vax.
He was motivated by power and greed, and lied about his involvement under oath before Congress.
Fauci should have been indicted already. God knows there’s an abundance of evidence. A trove of emails was released showing that he was warned that COVID 19 was engineered in a ChiCom lab, which he repeatedly denied, and launched a campaign to cover it up.
The Covid cabal went to great lengths to cover for the ChiComs and politicize the virus.
This country was shut down over a virus with a 98% recovery rate. 26 million Americans were unemployed. People lost their jobs, homes, livelihoods, and businesses because of this induced panic. The economic impact will take years to overcome.
The coronavirus will come and go. But the government will never forget how easy it was to take control of your life; to control every event, restaurant, sports facility, classroom, church, and even if you are allowed to leave your house.
Every one of the shitbags who had a part in the Covid dystopia—Biden, Fauci, the CDC, and the NIH— should be held accountable. They belong in prison.
That won’t happen, though. The Dems will defend this motherfucker regardless. They care as much about America’s well being as they do about laws and ethics.
