Dr. Fauci tears up during congressional testimony as Republicans tear into him for Covid 'lies**

The pandemic patriarch Dr. Anthony Fauci got emotional when detailing death threats against him and his children, while also insisting taxpayer dollars were not used for risky gain-of-function research in China and he never used personal email for 'official business.'

His bombshell admission came before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic that has been seeking for over a year now to determine the origins of the pandemic that killed over a million Americans and millions more globally. 

The fast-paced hearing slowed down briefly when Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., asked Fauci about the personal toll his role on the White House Coronavirus Taskforce cost him. 

'Myself, my three daughters, they have had credible death threats, leading to the arrests of different individuals,' he said. 'Credible death threats meaning someone who clearly was on their way to killing.'

'It's very troublesome to me,' he continued. 'It is even more troublesome because they involve my wife.'

Fauci said such threats have require his family to have 'Protective Services essentially all the time.' 

Later, the hearing roared back to life as firebrand Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene , R-Ga., told Fauci to his face that she believes he is lying and 'belongs in prison.'

'We should be recommending you to be prosecuted ... for crimes against humanity,' the Georgia Republican said.  

She also claimed that his 'repulsive, evil science,' led to school children having to endure class with masks, causing detrimental impacts on the kids. 

Freshman Democrat Rep. Robert Garcia, D-Calif., slammed Greene for her 'ridiculous' attacks on Fauci.

He said this has been the most unruly conference in his 1.5 years in Congress.

Greene's outburst earned her the scorn of Democrats and briefly the committee chair Brad Wenstrup, R-Ohio, who raised his voice to demand she quiet down. 

Shortly after the chairman wrangled the lawmakers back to speaking in level tones, a woman in the audience wearing a white dress began yelling at Dr. Fauci.
