Madison Cawthorn: If the GOP retakes the House we’re gonna ‘prosecute Fauci to the fullest extent of the law’

During an appearance on the pro-Trump Real America’s Voice network, Rep. Madison Cawthorn said he’s going to make sure Dr. Anthony Fauci faces “consequences” for “directly” lying to Congress if the GOP gains control of the House in 2022.

“When Dr. Rand Paul actually gave [Fauci] the opportunity to recant his statements, he declined,” Cawthorn said. “Then when Rand Paul started pressing him further and said there will be consequences for those responsible, I’m not sure if you noticed in that clip — you see his hands start to shake uncontrollably.”

Cawthorn is referring to a shouting match between Paul and Fauci this Tuesday during a hearing where the two argued over whether the bat coronavirus research the National Institutes of Health funded in Wuhan could be defined as “gain of function” research. According to Cawthorn, Fauci’s hand weren’t shaking due to anger over Paul’s line of questioning. They were shaking due to “fear.”

“Dr. Fauci knows he has been working as a pawn of the Chinese communist party … so I think it’s very well founded that we refer this to the DOJ,” he continued, adding that it’s unfortunate that the DOJ is currently “under the control of the Biden administration.”

“So, what’s going to come of it? I don’t know. But what I can tell you is when we take back the majority back in 2022, I’ll make sure the consequences are doled out.”

“We want to prosecute this guy to the full ability of the law, because I’ll tell you, to lie to the American people just to get your name in the news, just to see your face on the cover of books, just to get fame and fortune, I’ll tell you, Dr. Anthony Fauci does deserve either fame or fortune.”
