Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Wednesday he believed Dr. Anthony Fauci should receive up to “five years in jail” for allegedly lying in his testimony to Congress.
“It’s a felony punishable by five years in jail,” Paul said in an evening interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. “I don’t think Biden Department of Justice will do anything with it, but … it is very dangerous to have public officials who we need to have trust in coming and lying to us. But he has lied dozens of times. Usually he tells us it’s for our own good.”
Paul has maintained for months that Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), lied to Congress
