Anthony Fauci defeats Ted Cruz in revolt against the Capitol

Dr. Anthony Fauci lashed out at Senator Ted Cruz after the Texas Republican announced that Fauci should face federal indictment for some of his testimony before Congress.

During an interview with Face the Nation that aired on Sunday, CBS’s Margaret Brennan noted that Cruise “told the attorney general that you should be prosecuted.”

“Yeah. I have to laugh at this. Should I be held accountable? What happened on January 6, Senator?” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, responded.

Cruise was among the Republican senators who voted against confirming Joe Biden’s victory in the January 6 elections, the same day that a violent crowd of Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to overturn the election results.

Last month during Congressional hearings Cruz asked Attorney General Merrick Garland, if he appoints a special attorney to investigate whether Fauci lied to Congress when he said the National Institutes of Health did not fund the “functionality enhancement” study at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China prior to COVID-19. The National Institutes of Health said they did not provide money for such research, but Cruz and other GOP senators pointed to the agency’s October research funding letter sent by an official from the National Institutes of Health to accuse Fauci of lying to Congress.

It was the latest Republican effort to question Fauci’s integrity.

Fauci, Biden’s top medical adviser, responded on Sunday, saying his Republican critics are spreading lies and misinformation to distract from their Trump connection and support.

“If they stand up and really point their bullets at Tony Fauci, well, people can find out that there is a person there,” he added. “There is a face, there is a voice that you can recognize, you see it on TV. So it’s easy to criticize, but they really criticize science because I represent science. This is dangerous “.
