Rand Paul vows to probe Dr Anthony Fauci's 'secret trips' to the CIA before COVID and says he's 'salivating' at a possible Trump presidency to hold agencies accountable for pandemic 'cover-up' --Sen. Paul claimed Fauci frequently made 'off the books' visits to the spy agency | 10 April 2024 | Sen. Rand Paul told DailyMail.com he will continue his probe into the origins of COVID-19 by investigating Dr. Anthony Fauci's secret 'off the books' trips to the CIA. The Republican from Kentucky - who is also a doctor - has been investigating the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic for years. In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Paul disclosed that Fauci, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), was friendly with the CIA - which is notably one of the few federal agencies that still has not clearly established COVID-19 origins. "The CIA officially still says [COVID-19 is] probably from animals," Paul said. "We also have stories, rumors and innuendo that Fauci was a frequent visitor off the books to the CIA." He pointed to how the CIA disagrees with findings from the Department of Energy and FBI that have said the the pandemic likely originated from a leak at a Wuhan, China, lab. And that though an initial CIA assessment found the lab leak theory was likely, senior officials in the agency overruled their findings.
