Ted Cruz, Anthony Fauci Engage in War of Words

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, have traded criticisms and accusations over the origins of COVID-19 and partisan politics.

In an interview over the weekend, Fauci criticized Cruz for suggesting that he be investigated for statements he made to the U.S. Senate regarding COVID-19's origins and gain-of-function experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Cruz responded by saying that Fauci is an "unelected technocrat" who engages in "distorted science and facts" in order to exercise control over the public.
