The words #ArrestFauci began trending on Twitter over the weekend as new and disturbing details have emerged over his former involvement with extreme and barbaric experiments on dogs.

As Fox News reports:

Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) sent a letter to Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institutes of Health demanding answers to reports that taxpayer money from his department was used to subject dogs to abusive testing.

“Yesterday, I sent a letter to Dr. Fauci regarding cruel, taxpayer-funded experiments on puppies; debarking before drugging and killing them,” the South Carolina Republican tweeted Saturday along with a copy of the letter. “Thankful to my 23 democrat and republican colleagues who signed on. This is disgusting. What say you @NIH.”

A report from the White Coat Waste Project that was based off a Freedom of Information Act request with the National Institutes of Allergy & Infectious Disease found that more than $400,000 in taxpayer money was spent on canine experiments during which beagles were infected with parasites via biting flies.

In a statement to Fox News, Rep. Mace said that “using taxpayer money to de-bark, drug and kill beagle puppies is both inhumane and a disgrace to this country.”

The accusation follows another scandal in which Fauci seems to have been caught in a lie: claiming to Congress that US tax dollars were not used to support ‘gain of function’ research in Wuhan, China. A claim which has been openly contradicted by new evidence.
