If everything goes according to plan, then Dr. Anthony Fauci’s days in the federal government could be coming to an end.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) just predicted that, if Republicans win either the House or the Senate in 2022, then Fauci will retire.
Paul’s prediction came during an appearance on the “Ron Paul Liberty Report.”
He said: “I predict this: If Republicans take over either the House or the Senate, Fauci will retire.”
“We’ll get to the root of everything”
Paul’s prediction came as part of his response to the question “How big of an issue will Fauci be in next year’s election?” Paul believes that Fauci will be a “huge” issue, and he took an opportunity to do a little campaigning.
“One of the things I have told people is that if I win in 2022, I will be chairman of a committee in the Senate,” Paul said. “We will use the subpoena power to bring forth all the records. Right now they send us records, if we ask about their discussions, covering up where the virus came from, its origins in the lab, they white it all out, they redact all of the information and send us a blank piece of paper and they won’t tell us about their conversations. We’ll get to the root of everything.”
It’s at this point that Paul predicted Fauci’s retirement.
And, he added:
And that would be the best thing for the country because he’s been so damaging because it’s not just through force of law. All these blue state governors listen to him and think that it’s science to close a restaurant at 10 o’clock at night or to say that we have to have 25 percent of patrons. There’s no evidence that any of the mitigation, any of the rules or mandates changed the trajectory of the virus at all.
Paul is now, at least, the second congressional Republican who recently made it clear that a Republican House or Senate victory in 2022 will result in an investigation into Fauci. The other is Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
“The top investigation — which I think will primarily be done on the Oversight Committee — is on Fauci and the gain of function and the lab leak, which is the most likely scenario how we got this virus,” Jordan said.
The good news here is that Republicans are expected to win at least the House in 2022.
The bad news is that, according to a new report, Fauci would be set to make more than $350,000 per year if he retires. It is the largest pension in federal government history. Paul, Jordan, and other Republicans need to prevent this as much as they need to rid the American government of Fauci.
