Appearing with Mike Allen during an interview with “Axios on HBO” that aired Sunday,” Kentucky Senator Rand Paul called for Dr. Fauci to be fired.
Paul argued Biden should fire Fauci over U.S.-funded research in Wuhan “just for lack of judgment, if nothing else.”

Fauci fired back while appearing on ABC saying “Well, I obviously totally disagree with Senator Paul. He’s absolutely incorrect. Neither I nor Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the NIH lied or misled about what we’ve done.”
“The framework under which we have guidance about the conduct of research that we fund, the funding at the Wuhan Institute was to be able to determine what is out there in the environment, in bat viruses in China. And the research was very strictly under what we call a framework of oversight of the type of research,” Fauci added.
Paul tweeted last week ‘“I told you so” doesn’t even begin to cover it here.’
