Dr. Anthony Fauci‘s decision to attack Sen. Ted Cruz during an interview last weekend proved that he can no longer pretend to be a non-partisan bureaucrat, Sen. Tom Cotton told “The Ingraham Angle” on Monday.
SEN. TOM COTTON: “It’s just another example of the incompetence of the Biden administration. They think Tony Fauci remains a credible and impartial messenger about the Wuhan coronavirus. You saw this weekend, he went out and became an open partisan—attacking a sitting United States senator who is democratically elected by the people, as are the other 99 senators—as a—nothing but a bureaucrat, who works for those people who democratically elected 100 senators, attacking him in a partisan way. This is not Tony Fauci changing or turning over a new leaf; this is who he has been from the very beginning. And it is a simple fact that he testified to Congress, by the way, that he did not fund—through his agency—gain-of-function research in the Wuhan labs, making the coronaviruses there more dangerous and more transmissible. Yet his agency has since acknowledged that they did, in fact, did fund that gain-of-function research.”
