Sen. Paul: ‘Dr. Fauci Has a Self-Interest in Obscuring Any Relationship or Responsibility for Anything Done in the Wuhan Lab’

‘Without question, the evidence we presented in committee yesterday shows that the NIH was funding research in Wuhan’

EXCERPT:

PAUL: "Well, I think it’s important to know that Dr. Fauci has a self-interest in obscuring any relationship or responsibility for anything done in the Wuhan lab. Without question, the evidence we presented in committee yesterday shows that the NIH was funding research in Wuhan. We showed the exact numerical series of numbers that goes with the grant numbers. So yes, they were funding the Wuhan lab. The second question is whether or not the research was gain of function. The NIH actually defines gain of function — and I read that definition to him, but he didn't listen — the definition is that any kind of animal virus that occurs in nature, that affects animals only or infects animals only, if you recombine it or mutate it or adapt it in the lab with other viruses so it has characteristics that change it from being an animal-only virus to being a virus that now can infect humans, that you’ve gained in function, you've gained pathogenesis or you've gained virulence, you've made it more dangerous. Without question, this is what happened in the Wuhan lab. We have a number of professors who have said so.”
