VIDEO: Fauci Scrambles To Explain Emails After Explosive Confrontation By Sen. Rand Paul

The highly unpopular Biden regime medical advisor Anthony Fauci scrambled to explain himself after Sen. Rand Paul confronted him over using his “$420,000 salary to attack scientists that disagree” with him, as revealed in a recent email exchange that was released to the public.

Anthony Fauci, the highly unpopular Biden regime medical advisor, was grilled once again by Paul over newly released emails purportedly showing that he used his government position to smear three accomplished epidemiologists who disagreed with him.

“The idea that a government official like yourself would claim unilaterally to represent science, that any criticism of you would be considered a criticism of science itself is quite dangerous,” Senator Paul told Fauci.

“A planner who believes he is ‘the science’ leads to an arrogance that justifies in his mind using government resources to smear and to destroy the reputations of other scientists that disagree with him,” he continued.

“In an email exchange with Dr. [Francis] Collins, you conspire, and I quote directly here from the email, to create a ‘quick and devastating’ published takedown of three prominent epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford. Apparently there’s a lot of ‘fringe’ epidemiologists at Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford,” Paul said to Fauci.

Paul attacked Fauci for refusing to engage with fellow scientists “on the merits” and instead labeling his opponents as “fringe.” Paul called it the “epitome of cheap politics” and called Fauci’s behavior “reprehensible.”

Fauci, taken aback by such criticism, nervously replied that in “usual fashion, Senator, you are distorting everything about me…There you go again.”

“You do the same thing every hearing,” Fauci croaked.

Paul slammed Fauci for previously dismissing the notion of COVID-19 originating from the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a “conspiracy theory,” despite mounting evidence that the theory is closer to fact than previously admitted by government health officials.

Paul pointed to the fact that more people have died from COVID-19 under the tenure of Fauci and Joe Biden than had under President Donald Trump, and slammed the unpopular medical advisor for using his status to encourage controversial policies such as vaccine mandates.

Dr. Fauci then accuses @RandPaul of showing little concern for the 900,000 Americans who’ve died from COVID and instead leveling “personal attacks on me that have absolutely no relevance to reality.”

This comes after Project Veritas revealed military documents about gain-of-function research that directly contradict Fauci’s previous testimony under oath.

Dr. Fauci has repeatedly maintained, under oath, that the NIH and NAIAD have not been involved in gain of function research with the EcoHealth Alliance program. But according to the documents obtained by Project Veritas which outline why EcoHealth Alliance’s proposal was rejected, DARPA certainly classified the research as gain of function.

“The proposal does not mention or assess potential risks of Gain of Function (GoF) research,” a direct quote from the DARPA rejection letter.
