Paul (R-Kansas), Fauci’s arch-nemesis in the Senate, and other lawmakers who have questioned the veracity of his claims are “really criticizing science,” rather than the official himself, the White House medical adviser insisted during a recent interview with CBS’s Face the Nation. He also dismissed the senators’ opposition as “theater,” “nonsense” and “noise.”
In May, Dr. Fauci said, “The NIH has not ever and does not now, fund gain-of-function research.”
But early this month, the NIH contradicted that.
