Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) says he and his family have received death threats in light of his prominent clashes with Anthony Fauci, the government’s leading infectious disease expert, over the origins of the coronavirus.
“This week, I’ve had five death threats just for being outspoken on it,” Paul said on Fox News Friday night. “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.”
The comment comes weeks after it was revealed that the FBI and U.S. Capitol Police were investigating a suspicious package containing a white powder that was delivered to Paul’s home.
