Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) punched back at Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday after the infectious diseases doctor claimed that criticism against him is "dangerous."
What did Fauci say?
During an interview that aired on CBS News' "Face The Nation," Fauci took aim at Paul and Cruz, two Republican lawmakers who have been some of Fauci's loudest critics throughout the pandemic.
When confronted with Cruz's assertion that Fauci should be prosecuted for allegedly lying to Congress, Fauci invoked the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol.
"I have to laugh at that. I should be prosecuted? What happened on Jan. 6, Senator?" Fauci said.
