Fox News contributor and Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich sounded off on Dr. Fauci, who faces questioning from Senators on the continued response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On “The Faulkner Focus,” Gingrich blasted Fauci for what he believes is “dangerous research” being conducted in China.
NEWT GINGRICH: In any reasonable society, Fauci would be gone. He’s violated his own rules. He wrote a paper on this back about 2012, talking about dangerous research and what standards ought to be set, and admitting that in the end, this was more than a scientific question because dangerous research was a threat to the whole society. I’ve known Fauci since he did brilliant work on HIV/AIDS in the 1980s. And I’m sad to say it, but I think he now is destructive. I think he is dishonest. I think he is trying to save his reputation, and he’s doing so at very substantial risk to lives around the planet, and it’s very unfortunate.
