Sen. Rand Paul said Tuesday that National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci has repeatedly lied and should be fired.

Paul said on Just the News' "Water Cooler" show that Fauci lied to Congress when he said the National Institutes of Health did not fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

"He oughta be immediately fired," said Paul, who has repeatedly clashed with Fauci over numerous COVID-19 issues. "He's been lying to us since the very beginning. He first said no masks work, which wasn't true. Then he said all masks work and that wasn't true either. The N95 masks work, the rest of them don't. But he's been dishonest from the very beginning."

The Kentucky Republican Paul also said Fauci has lied "so-called with good intentions, noble lies, but he has been dishonest and he should be dismissed."
