One of the questions all of us have had during the past year has been, “Where did the coronavirus come from?” There are a log of theories, some more believable than others. The current theory is that is was a mistake in the Wuhan Lab when the Lab was doing ‘gain of function’ research on viruses.
Yesterday Breitbart posted an article about one aspect of the discussion.
The article reports:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) claimed Dr. Anthony Fauci committed perjury over his gain of function comments related to Communist China’s Wuhan lab.
Paul was asked on Real America’s Voice’s The Water Cooler show, “do you believe he [Fauci] perjured himself?”
“Absolutely, he lied to the America people. There was gain of function research going on with Dr. Shi Zhengli at the Wuhan Institute,” Fauci explained.
In her paper, she actually thanked Dr. Fauci and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is a part of National Institutes of Health (NIH) that Dr. Fauci runs,” Paul continued.
“It’s listed at the end of the paper. This paper was fined by NIAID research and it lists a ten digit number that identifies the research money she got from from the United States. Was it gain of function?” Paul asked.
“Well it took a SARS virus, which is a coronavirus, that’s 15 times more deadly than COVID, and it added to it S protein, which is something in the surface of it, to make it more easily infectious to epithelial cells for the respiratory tract. That to me is gain of function,” he said.
Paul went on to highlight two scientists, one from Rutgers University and another from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who confirmed the paper studies gain of function.
Senator Rand Paul is a doctor and has paid close attention to this epidemic.
Yesterday YouTube posted a video of the Senate cheering after an amendment Senator Paul added to a bill passed unanimously. The amendment bans all U.S. funding of gain of function research in China.
Here is the video:
That’s good news for America.
