Fauci Household Worth $10.4M+, Made $1.7M, Unredacted 2020 Financial Disclosures Reveal

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Remember the other day (Tuesday, January 11th) during a Congressional hearing, when Senator Roger Marshall demanded the Fauci “submit to Congress and the public a financial disclosure that includes your past and current investments?” It makes perfectly reasonable sense that the public should be made aware of any potential conflicting interests, ulterior financial motives, or outside pressure influencing the good doctor, who is probably the most powerful un-elected official in the country over the last two years, and provably the highest paid. In the exchange, Fauci insists that Sen. Marshall has no idea what he’s talking about and insists that all of his relevant financial information is “totally accessible to you, if you want it. To the public.” Fauci was then caught on a hot mic calling the Senator a “moron” for asking these questions and pressing him like that.

Here’s the exchange, in case you missed it.

Not surprisingly, Fauci was entirely misleading, if not outright dishonest, during that exchange with Sen. Marshall. His financial disclosures are certainly not “totally accessible” to the public, as he emphatically and condescendingly stated. In fact, Fox News explained  that

“The Center for Public Integrity submitted a request for Fauci’s financial disclosures with the NIH in May 2020, but did not receive the information until August of that year. When the organization did receive it, it was produced under the Freedom of Information Act and came back partially redacted.

The NIH is currently being sued for the production of Fauci’s financial records by watchdog organization OpenTheBooks.com.”

If you have to sue government organizations over a period of many months in order to obtain only heavily redacted versions of financial disclosures about one of the most powerful un-elected men in the country, who also happens to also be the highest paid government employee in the country, then that information is not “totally accessible” to the public.

Sen. Marshall said,

“Just like he has misled the American people about sending taxpayers dollars to Wuhan, China, to fund gain-of-function research, about masks, testing, and more, Dr. Fauci was completely dishonest about his financial disclosures being open to the public — it’s no wonder he is the least trusted bureaucrat in America.

At the end of the day, Dr. Fauci must be held accountable to all Americans who have been suing and requesting for this information but don’t have the power of a Senate office to ask for it.”

Almost immediately, Sen. Marshall introduced the FAUCI Act “so financial disclosures like these are made public and are easily accessible online to every American.” Which is honestly a great idea, regardless of political party. The American people should have total financial transparency from the people who run the country, especially when we’ve seen a disturbing pattern of “civil servants” becoming shockingly wealthy off of salaries which the public knows are inconsistent with that kind of wealth.

Well, last night, Senator Marshall’s office received the unreacted version of his fiscal year 2020 financial disclosures and, big surprise–

Fauci lied.

To Congress.

And the American people.

Again.

According to a Forbes’ report,

“The financial disclosures contain a wealth of previously unknown information. For example, the Fauci household’s net worth exceeds $10.4 million.

During the pandemic year of 2020, their household income increased by $1,782,807 — including federal income and benefits of $868,812; outside royalties and travel perks totaling $119,626; and investment accounts increasing by $794,369.”

The details are interesting and worth a read, but my favorites are the $8,100 in travel reimbursement he received for virtually appearing at three different galas (expensive travel from his bedroom to his computer desk, I guess), as well as almost $5,200 from the Partnership for Public Service after being named that non-profit’s “federal employee of the year.”

But those are just pennies compared to the hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of royalties and fees he collected, as well as his portfolio gains. Insider information and timing advantages are apparently extremely lucrative. Just ask Nancy Pelosi.

What makes this all worse is the knowledge that the taxpayers are actually footing the bill for Dr. Anthony Fauci’s hefty salary and his hundreds of media events, where he spews partisan, inconsistent, manipulated information on which he often flip-flops in subsequent media events.

Best of all (for him), he got a National Geographic documentary out of it, as well as several books (children and adult), and an action figure of himself.

As though he is a hero.
