Dr. Fauci was told that Republican Senator Ted Cruz thinks the doctor should be prosecuted. Fauci laughs and then deflects the conversation back to January 6th and the incident at the United States Capitol.

It sorta went like this:

Margaret Brennan: “Sen. Cruz told the Attorney General you should be prosecuted.”

Dr. Fauci: I should be prosecuted? What happened on January 6th, senator? … That’s okay, I’m just gonna do my job. I'm gonna be saving lives, and [Republican lawmakers] are gonna be lying."
