Dr. Anthony Fauci’s retirement won’t stop him from being investigated over the origin of the coronavirus, according to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
Paul shared the warning following Fauci’s retirement statement on Monday.

No rest for the wicked
“Fauci’s resignation will not prevent a full-throated investigation into the origins of the pandemic,” Paul wrote.
“He will be asked to testify under oath regarding any discussions he participated in concerning the lab leak,” he added.

Paul has served as a long-time critic of Fauci, confronting him in multiple hearings about the origin of COVID-19. If Republicans win a majority of the House in November, it could open the door for further investigation.
The Kentucky lawmaker has accused Fauci of removing the discussion of gain-of-function about the virus from the NIH website, asking tough questions about Fauci’s connections to its origin.
Rand Paul isn’t the only one that has been attempting to take Fauci to task for his actions over the last several years of the pandemic.
Dr. Richard Ebright, a Rutgers University chemistry professor and Waksman Institute of Microbiology laboratory director, claimed that Fauci has made “demonstrably false” claims about NIH funding of gain-of-function research in Wuhan.
“I stand by my statement. The statements made on repeated occasions to the public, to the present policymakers, by the NIH and director Dr. Fauci have been untruthful,” Ebright told Congress earlier this month. “I do not understand why those statements are being made because they are demonstrably false.”
Fauci’s retirement may not mean much when it comes to further investigation of the origin of the illness behind the pandemic.
