‘Cheap Politics’: Rand Paul Puts Fauci On Blast During Heated Senate Showdown

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) unloaded on Dr. Anthony Fauci during a Tuesday hearing, accusing him of using his position to assist in the public smearing of epidemiologists with whom he disagreed.

Paul, citing an email exchange initially authored by former National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins, said that Fauci had agreed with Collins and either allowed or assisted in the “takedown” of epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford — whose ideas Collins suggested should be painted as “fringe.”
