Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul, Dr. Fauci’s nemesis, called an emergency hearing to discuss gain-of-function (GoF) research once again.
What resulted in Wednesday’s Senate hearing was quite shocking as it exposed the depth of Fauci’s lies vis a vis NIH funding of gain-of-function research. The testimony provided by Dr. Ebright spurred GOP action as lawmakers vow to investigate Fauci after November’s midterm elections.
Dr. Richard Ebright, a microbiologist from Rutgers University, virtually testified during a Senate hearing on Wednesday. He essentially blew up Dr. Fauci’s cover on GoF research, admitting under oath that public health officials lied to lawmakers and the American public.
Ebright testified that Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other U.S. federal agencies funded research that fit the definition of GoF at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) without proper oversight. This bombshell directly contradicts Dr. Fauci’s previous testimony, but we all know how liberals view definitions. If it doesn’t fit the narrative, change them!
According to Ebright, Fauci’s NIH violated a 2014-2017 measure pausing all GoF research at the WIV. The microbiologist testified that GoF projects funded by the NIH continued after the pause but did not make their way through the agency’s regulatory oversight process. In other words, Facui used federal grant money (taxpayer dollars) to fund experiments in China without any regulation whatsoever.
Fauci claims GoF experiments were not conducted based on a flimsy definition of the term. Bat-based experiments were made even more dangerous by Chinese scientists by increasing the infectiousness of certain coronaviruses, thus meeting the definition of GoF research and the oversight required by law.
“Gain-of-function research of concern involves the creation of new health threats–health threats that did not exist previously and that might not have come to exist by natural means for tens, hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of years,” Ebright said.

Lest we forget, in May 2021 Dr. Fauci emphatically testified that his NIH “does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” but we now know that’s a total fabrication.
NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins and Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed the NIH did NOT fund gain-of-function research in Wuhan.

Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has frequently clashed with Fauci over whether or not the federal government funded GoF research. Fauci called Paul “entirely and completely incorrect” on the subject.
Despite his endless denials, it’s been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Dr. Fauci and other public health officials did in fact engage in gain-of-function research experiments conducted in China, which resulted in the spread of COVID-19.
The walls continue to cave in for Dr. Fauci as more evidence emerges exposing his role in the China Virus pandemic.
