(SNews) – Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci for lying about the pandemic and covering up the origins of Covid.
Cruz blasted Fauci as “abominable” during an appearance on Fox Business.
The senator was responding to reports that another federal government agency has now stated that COVID-19 most likely originated from a leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.
As Slay News reported, the Wall Street Journal obtained classified documents showing the Department of Energy (DOE) concludes in a report that the lab leak is the most likely source of the pandemic.
Cruz argues that the report is evidence that Fauci lied to Congress under oath about the virus’s origin, committing a felony in the process.
“Dr. Fauci’s behavior on this has been abominable,” Cruz said on Fox Business.
“I think he has done more damage than any bureaucrat in the history of the United States,” Cruz continued.
“He has championed policies that have hurt millions of Americans, hurt millions of school kids in particular.”
“And he has also done more to damage the credibility of the United States government when it comes to medical and scientific advice because Dr. Fauci allowed his advice to be politicized,” Cruz further urged.
“We know Dr. Fauci in writing asked Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook to suppress references to the origin of Covid being from a Chinese government lab,” Cruz continued,
“There’s a very real possibility that Fauci himself bears culpability.
“I believe Dr. Fauci has lied to Congress – which is a felony – when he has stated that the federal government did not fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Cruz asserted.
“Since then, the National Institutes for Health in writing has contradicted that.
“And if the Biden Justice Department were enforcing the law, they ought to be investigating Dr. Fauci for lying to Congress, which is a federal crime,” Cruz charged.
“To date, the Biden DOJ has been too political to hold Dr. Fauci accountable.”

In early February, it emerged that Fauci is now profiting handsomely from speaking engagements months after leaving his position in the Biden administration.
Reports indicate that Fauci earns up to $100,000 per appearance.
