Republican Senator Rand Paul sends an 'official criminal referral' to the DOJ over Dr Fauci


Rand Paul has submitted an 'official criminal referral' to the Department of Justice in regards to the nation's former top doctor, Dr. Anthony Fauci, over testimony he gave about the coronavirus and whether it came from a Chinese lab.

Senator Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, claims Dr Fauci, 82, committed perjury when he testified in front of a Senate committee in 2021. Perjury is a federal offense that carries up to five years in prison.

Paul has now written to Attorney General Merrick Garland calling for an investigation into whether Fauci lied under oath over his knowledge of dangerous virus research that was taking place at the Wuhan lab, in China.
