NEW DISCLOSURES SHOW FAUCI’S HOUSEHOLD MADE $1.7 MILLION IN 2020: INCLUDING INCOME, ROYALTIES, TRAVEL PERKS & INVESTMENT GAINS
From our friends at OpenTheBooks.com
BREAKING: During the pandemic year of 2020, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s household income, perks and benefits, and unrealized gains totaled $1,776,479 — including federal income and benefits of $868,812; while outside royalties and travel perks totaled $113,298; and investment accounts increased by $794,369.
We’ve been persistent for the last 12-months – and now Dr. Anthony Fauci’s financial disclosures are finally posted online.
Here is how it all came together last week:
TUESDAY, JANUARY 11th
Congressional hearing: U.S. Senator Roger Marshall asked Dr. Fauci about his salary – the highest at the federal level (Marshall cited our research published at Forbes). Then, Marshall raised questions about the lack of financial disclosure (we are suing for those records represented by Judicial Watch).
Later that day, we broke the fact that Dr. Fauci records were NOT available – in an interview on Sinclair Broadcast (a Fortune 500 company with 190 ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox local stations across America).
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12th
A full breakdown of what Fauci records were and weren’t available published in my piece at Forbes: No, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s Financial Records Aren’t Available. Why Won’t NIH Immediately Release Them?
Simultaneously, we filed a second Federal Freedom of Information Act lawsuit along with Judicial Watch to force the NIH to produce copies of Dr. Fauci’s daily calendar from the earliest days of the pandemic.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 13th
PolitiFact fact-checked Fauci and Marshall: Fauci Said All You Have To Do Is Ask For His Financial Disclosure. Yes, But It Could Take A While. The Forbes piece was used as primary source material for the Trust-O-Meter column.
Sen. Marshall wrote a one-page demand letter to NIH and Dr. Fauci to release the 2019 and 2020 financial disclosures. Again, my Forbes column was used as primary source material and footnoted at the base of the letter.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 14th
At 5pm ET, the NIH released Fauci’s unredacted records from 2019 and 2020. This was the first time anyone ever saw the 2020 record – we had previously received the 2019 record with heavy blackouts.
Sen. Marshall announced legislation to cure the lack of financial disclosure among senior level federal bureaucrats: Financial Accountability For Uniquely Compensated Individuals (FAUCI Act).
SATURDAY, JANUARY 15th
Thanks to your support of our mission, there is A LOT more transparency today at the National Institutes of Health and on Dr. Fauci.
Thank you for playing a key role in our fight for transparency – we look forward to many more successes in 2022!
Remember, It’s Your Money!
