(SNews) – Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has just made a campaign pledge that will have Dr. Anthony Fauci sweating bullets.

On Monday, RFK Jr. said during an appearance on Fox News’s “Jesse Watters Primetime” that, if elected president, he would order the prosecution of Fauci.

Kennedy said that Fauci must be held accountable for his actions before and during the pandemic.

The comments come as evidence continues to mount to suggest that Fauci played a role in the origins of the virus and later tried to cover up his own involvement.

Kennedy said: “If there were crimes that he committed, of course, I would tell the attorney general to prosecute him, not hold off.

“I think that he caused a lot of injury.

“I think that he particularly, by withholding early treatment from Americans, we racked up the highest death count in the world.

‘We only have 4.2 percent of the globe’s population, but we had 16 percent of the Covid deaths in this country.

“That was from bad policy.

“There are countries that did the opposite of what we did that provided Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, other early treatments to their populations and had 1/200th of our death rate.

“There are many, many things we did wrong in our country and some of those were I would say … some of the things that were done by health officials at that time, that they knew they would be harmful.”
