Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has called for a criminal investigation into Dr. Anthony Fauci, who the senator accused of lying to Congress about the funding of gain-of-function research that many believe led to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Tuesday, Paul asked the U.S. Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into Fauci, who, as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has positioned himself as the face of the government’s COVID-19 response and denied that the National Institutes of Health had funded gain-of-function research at a lab in Wuhan, China.

Paul announced his intention to request that Attorney General Merrick Garland pursue charges against Fauci during an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” Tuesday night: “I will be sending a letter to the Department of Justice asking for a criminal referral because he has lied to Congress.”

The Washington Examiner obtained a copy of the letter that Paul wrote to Garland and shared excerpts from it on Saturday.
