Fauci Laughs Off Question About Being Investigated by Department of Justice

Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Biden, laughed off a question about being investigated by the Department of Justice during an interview aired on Sunday November 28.

Fauci is also the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institute of Health.

When the interview on “Face the Nation” turned to the politicization of science and public health, Fauci went on offense.

First, Fauci criticized Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and soon after he went after Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

CBS News host Margaret Brennan told Fauci that Cruz wanted the attorney general to prosecute him.

Fauci reacted by laughing saying, “I have to laugh at that. I should be prosecuted? What happened on Jan. 6, senator?”

In October during a Senate hearing, Cruz told Attorney General Merrick Garland he should prosecute Fauci for lying to Congress over statements he made regarding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan virology laboratory.

Fauci believes he is being made into a scapegoat and added, “I’m just going to do my job and I’m going to be saving lives and they’re going to be lying.”

Fauci’s critics expressed their views on Twitter.

While Fauci claims he is just a scientist doing his job, his comments attacking the Senators totally undermines his assessment of himself.

Attacking Senators and calling them liars is very political and shows he is very defensive of his role in funding gain-of-function research in China.

Fauci has lost credibility in the eyes of many Americans and after his comments on CBS News, he should be fired.
