Sen. Rand Paul Says There Should Be Bipartisan Investigation Into COVID Pandemic

Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul told Newsmax that for months now he’s been calling for a bipartisan investigation into COVID-19.

“I’ve been calling for an investigation for months now,” Paul went on to say during a conversation with , “Spicer & Co.”

“We should have a bipartisan investigation into the origins of the virus to try to make sure this never happens again,” he continued.

On Sunday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, told CBS’s “Face the Nation,” in an appeal to authority fallacy that those “people who scattered around misinformation … they’re really criticizing science because I represent science. That’s dangerous.”

The Kentucky senator then said, “Dr. Fauci doesn’t want us to question him, his dictates, his mandates, or science, but … we now know that more people died under Biden during last year than died under the first year of the pandemic under Trump.”

Paul then said that this is probably due to the ineffective nature of the current crop of vaccines.

Additionally, Paul illustrates, Fauci has “never really admitted any responsibility for funding the research in Wuhan. He’s never admitted the possibility that it could have leaked from the lab.”

Paul then points out that Fauci has never “admitted his personal culpability in funding this research. And this research goes on as we speak. There’s still sending money to China, but they’re also doing this research in Galveston and in North Carolina, we could have another leak of a worse virus, and we need to get to the bottom of this.”

Despite theories pointing toward the wet market as an origin of COVID-19, in late Oct. the Office of the Director of National Intelligence issued a report, mentioning how “four [intelligence community] elements and the National Intelligence Council [assessed] with low confidence that the initial SARS-CoV-2 infection was most likely caused by natural exposure to an animal infected with it or a close progenitor virus — a virus that probably would be more than 99 percent similar to SARS-CoV-2. These analysts give weight to China’s officials’ lack of foreknowledge, the numerous vectors for natural exposure, and other factors. “

The report then goes on to add that, “one [intelligence community] element [assessed] with moderate confidence that the first human infection with SARS-CoV-2 most likely was the result of a laboratory-associated incident, probably involving experimentation, animal handling, or sampling by the Wuhan Institute of Virology. These analysts give weight to the inherently risky nature of work on coronaviruses”

The IC judges ultimately came to the conclusion that without any new data they would not be able to determine the “specific pathway for initial natural contact with an animal or to determine that a laboratory in Wuhan was handling SARS-CoV-2 or a close progenitor virus before COVID-19 emerged.”

Paul is right on the money. We need to know where this whole thing started from and who is responsible for it spreading. If all of the information points to China and it really is true they lied about the spread of the illness, they need to be held accountable for their actions.
