Rand Paul sends official criminal referral on Anthony Fauci to DOJ

Source: The Hill

By Christian Spencer

Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) made good on his threat to refer Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to President Biden and director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to the Justice Department for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

As Changing America previously reported, Fauci said that the National Institutes of Health “has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology” in response to Paul’s unsubstantiated claims to the contrary during a May hearing.

Last Tuesday, Paul asked Fauci if he would like to retract a previous statement, saying “as you are aware it is a crime to lie to Congress.”

Fauci said he would not retract the statement and was adamant that he has never lied before Congress.

3. What an ass!

More from the article about the process:

The following Wednesday, reported The Washington Examiner, the Kenucky senator officially sent a request to Attorney General Merrick Garland to open a criminal investigation of Fauci’s statement.

"I write to urge the United States Department of Justice to open an investigation into testimony made to the United States Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions by Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on May 11, 2021," Paul wrote in the referral obtained byThe Examiner.


I hope Garland dismisses it immediately.

No criminal referral for Donald Trump who removed the CDC observer they had at Wuhan because Obama had put them there? Trump, who disbanded the pandemic response team because they had been created by President Obama? Trump, who in February 2020 called the pandemic "their new hoax." About all that Rand Paul says nothing.

17. But he never qualified to receive board certification from AAO (American Academy of Opthalmology)

so he had the audacity to create his own "board" (National Opthalmology Board) so that he could claim board certification in the specialty.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2013/11/08/rand-paul-has-another-problem/


So his whole career is one big lie and his ignorance well documented.

53. I didn't know about the certification

Apparently he once was certified by a mainstream board but when renewal came up, they refused to renew him.

That prol'ly never happens but I'd guess tales of his assholery got around to the board.

snip

The Courier-Journal points out today that Paul’s board “is not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties, which works with the American Medical Association to approve such specialty boards.”

The American Board of Medical Specialties does recognize the American Board of Ophthalmology. More than 19 in 20 American ophthalmologists are certified through ABO — but Paul isn’t. He was certified with the ABO from 1995 until 2005, when his certification lapsed, and was not renewed.

96. His neighbor beat him up exactly because he's a festering asshole

His neighbor obsessed over his yard and Paul kept pilling up trash on their property line just to spite him. His neighbor asked him several times to stop and even cleaned it up for him repeatedly and Paul kept doing it. Right or wrong Paul needed his ass kicked and in true festering asshole fashion he pretended he was a completely innocent victim in the whole thing. If a case like this went to trial and I was on the jury, I would not have voted to convict. You can only push so far and not expect a reaction.

.... kept trying to say in between R.P.'s interruptions.

In the larger picture, it's a JOKE for a republican to call for an investigation for lying to Congress. The last US Attorney General (R) for TFG made lying to Congress the default response mode.

Apparently, the repugs want to reserve the practice of lying to Congress and by extension the American People a "right" reserved only for themselves.

Apparently, making false accusations against people is quite popular these days... especially when it serves no good purpose other than to "cover one's ass" and distract from the fact that mistakes have been made.

30. For those who haven't watched the exchange

If you haven't watched it, Paul and Fauci completely discuss his previous statements to Congress and Fauci explains why it isn't inconsistent with what he is saying now(it was all about funding and what represents rain-of-function research). The fact that they both repeat what he said then, and discuss the issue further now, precludes anything he said from being "perjury". Paul was trying to disagree with what constitutes "gain-of-function" and then frame that disagreement as "perjury". Calling it childish doesn't even do it justice.

63. That's research Paul claims to have evidence of. I think the source he quotes

isn't sufficient evidence, and neither does Rand Paul have standing to make a criminal referrall to the DOJ. A criminal referral, as wiki explains it, has to be an agency of government or private counsel, meaning not the formal capacity Rand Paul works in, and it has to be after some formal agency investigation. This has been a topic for interest, but RP's not on any committee that would do a formal investigation of the topic, as far as we know.

In the U.S. federal government, regulatory and law enforcement agencies that investigate crimes must typically refer cases to the Department of Justice for prosecution at its discretion. These referrals may not require formal documentation, but may include a case report. In a direct referral, agencies refer cases to the U.S. Attorney in the district where the crime occurred.[1] The United States Congress and its members, in their investigative role, issue criminal referrals to the Justice Department as well.[2]

90. He has no knowledge that what he's filing is false. It could just be one scientific opinion, is all.

Rand Paul might be dead worried and serious about this, believe he's got probable cause that the DOJ should investigate further. So it's really too early to say Rand Paul himself is in trouble.

And the DOJ might or might not have time to build a case to arrive at a decision that the filer's motives and information are false or malicious, but only what the filer asks to be investigated.
This is not just a case about what Fauci is responsible for saying about the money and programs in Wuhan, it's about what he could possibly have known about the facts of the science labs at Wuhan. It could add up to cock-ups on both ends; as soon as someone in the judiciary decides they've got enough to toss it or go forward, then we can ask about malice and falsity. We're not entitled to know the details of the case, and so we're still a long way from knowing the facts, or anything at all about it, imo.

56. Paul is such a putz. Because Fauci gave him an "ouchie" last week he's

hellbent to get him punished for kicking his ass in open testimony. The guy has got to be the biggest loser in the Senate.

60. Refer Paul for criminal wasting of Justice Department time with bogus referrals


Then refer Paul for lying to Congress. I'm sure in his recent record, say 2020 and 2021, on the floor of the Senate it will be possible to find many lies. Should probably consider his statements looking down from above during Committee hearings similarly under his oath to uphold the Constitution and by extension the prohibitions against lying to Congress.

69. Fauci's lawyer (Justice dept?) should take my lawyer's advice..

...when my landlord tried to evict me. He said we would delay and delay and wait til we got a tenant friendly judge. It worked.

73. I'd love to see Mr Paul be interrogated during discovery on that one...

Somehow, I don't think it would go like he thinks it might. As the accuser, he would be the primary witness.

got over run by C-19.

Otherwise referred to as "Be careful what you wish for."

I know its not a suit. But I wish there is a way Fauci can reciprocate the favor.

was talking about. hence the suit.

88. Doesn't that imply

that Rand Paul knows more about the origin of the virus than he ever revealed? He should be grilled by someone. Otherwise, I think he should be censored for wasting our valuable time.

Good grief, we have a rapidly deteriorating government...

92. this isn't about Fauci per say...

what he wants is for the DOJ to tell him to go piss up a rope.

Why?

because then he can claim they don't do anything.

that they are against "upholding the law".

this is more about him trying to earn cred among the ring wing assholes.
