Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has added his voice to the growing chorus of Republicans calling for Dr. Anthony Fauci to face prosecution for his actions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Musk’s comments came in response to Senator Rand Paul’s call for Fauci to be held accountable for funding dangerous research in Wuhan, China, which ultimately led to the outbreak of the virus and millions of deaths worldwide.
Recent revelations have shown that Fauci was not truthful in his statements to the public and in a sworn deposition last year, including his claim that he did not use Twitter. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan has suggested that Fauci could be prosecuted for making false statements to Congress.
Despite Fauci’s denials of wrongdoing, the pressure for accountability continues to mount. With prominent voices like Musk and Paul leading the charge, it is clear that Fauci will face continued scrutiny and calls for prosecution in the weeks and months ahead.
