EVERYWHERE ELSE, TOO: Fauci Lies in the Senate. “So what was it this time? Easy. It was when Rand Paul asked him if he thought it ‘appropriate to use your $420,000 salary to smear scientists who don’t agree with you?’ Fauci predictably denied the charge, but just about anyone with an ounce of sense could likely guess he was lying. Alas, there is no need for guesswork. An American Institute for Economic Research Freedom of Information request makes it plain: Fauci absolutely used his government position to smear any number of people with whom he disagrees.”
