Fox News host Steve Hilton said during his show on Sunday that Dr. Anthony Fauci lied to Congress and should be prosecuted.
During The Next Revolution, Hilton said, “Frankly, unless Fauci is prosecuted, and unless he and Collins have fully investigated Biden’s sudden conversion to finding out what really happened to cause this pandemic will be completely hollow.”
Hilton is not the first to call for Fauci’s prosecution. Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul also recently attacked the coronavirus spokesman for his alleged lies concerning the pandemic.
Paul received death threats in connection with the events. “This week, I’ve had five death threats just for being outspoken on it,” Paul said on Fox News.
“I don’t know what the world’s coming to, you can’t ask honest, difficult questions that in the end have proved out that Dr. Fauci was not being honest with us, but as a repercussion, my family had white powder sent to our house, and five death threats phoned in.”
According to The Hill, “The National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded a $3.4 million grant to the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance from 2014 to 2019. The Wuhan Institute of Virology was awarded a $600,000 subgrant under that contract, for the purpose of researching bat coronaviruses over five years.”
Fauci appears to have a conflict of interest and to have misled congress on certain issues related to the coronavirus. Some have called for his firing or resignation, but Hilton’s attack suggests a harsher response is warranted.
Fauci’s days may be numbered following the release of new information in the emails that have come out about his pandemic leadership. Whether he’ll face tougher punishment will be a matter for legislators rather than news hosts to decide.
