Dr. Anthony Fauci an “unelected technocrat who has distorted science and facts in order to exercise authoritarian control over millions of Americans”

Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday called Dr. Anthony Fauci an “unelected technocrat who has distorted science and facts in order to exercise authoritarian control over millions of Americans” after Fauci blasted the Texas Republican for suggesting he be investigated for statements he made about COVID-19.

“He lives in a liberal world where his smug ‘I REPRESENT science’ attitude is praised,” Cruz tweeted.

The lawmaker also called for the Justice Department to investigate the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for making false statements to Congress.

During an interview with CBS News, Fauci told host Margaret Brennan that “anybody who spins lies and threatens and all that theater that goes on with some of the investigations and the congressional committees and the Rand Pauls and all that other nonsense, that’s noise, Margaret, that’s noise.

“I’m just going to do my job, and I’m going to be saving lives and they’re going to be lying,” Fauci said.

Some Republicans, including Cruz and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., have accused Fauci of lying to Congress when he denied in May the National Institutes of Health funded “gain of function” research at a virology lab in Wuhan, China. Cruz has urged Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Fauci’s statements.

Cruz on Sunday listed four “facts” as to why he called for a DOJ probe into Fauci, and concluded that “no amount of ad hominem insults parroting Democrat talking points will get Fauci out of this contradiction.”
