Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said recently leaked documents showing Fauci financed “chimeric Coronaviruses” demonstrated he lied to Congress once again.
Fauci has refused the NIH-funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan on numerous occasions.

Through a FOIA request, The Intercept got 900 pages of Wuhan papers, indicating Fauci lied about his role in supporting gain-of-function research.
Rand Paul remarked on Tuesday, “Surprise, surprise – Fauci lied again.”
The Kentucky Senator said, “And I was correct about his agency financing innovative Coronavirus research at Wuhan.”

According to Fox News:
Paul’s tweet followed a story in The Intercept that revealed the U.S. government pumped $3.1 million into American health organization EcoHealth Alliance to back bat coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).
According to the report, almost $600,000 of that federal moneywas partially used by the WIV to find and alter bat coronaviruses that could jump to humans and infect them.
Additionally, the documents revealed that experimental research on genetically engineered mice with human cell receptors was conducted at the Wuhan University Center for Animal Experiment, and not the WIV as previously thought.
“The documents make it clear that assertions by the NIH Director, Francis Collins, and the NIAID Director, Anthony Fauci, that the NIH did not support gain-of-function research or potential pandemic pathogen enhancement at WIV are untruthful,” Rutgers University chemical biology professor Richard Ebright said.
