Why is a career civil servant worth eight figures? And if he is that rich, why does he need a $350,000 pension from taxpayers?
That’s the situation of Joe Biden’s coronavirus advisor, Anthony Fauci, who has over $10 million, notes law professor Glenn Reynolds. “Not that there’s anything wrong with having or making money, but I don’t think he’s worth it. In fact, I think his value to society is negative,” Reynolds says.
Fauci’s 2020 financial disclosure was released publicly Friday night by Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), who Fauci had called a “moron” after he inquired into Fauci’s financial disclosures during a Senate proceeding Tuesday.
“Dr. Fauci was completely dishonest about his financial disclosures being open to the public,” Marshall said in a statement. “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.”
Fauci’s 2020 filing — not previously available to the public — details the finances of the nation’s highest-paid federal employee, who reportedly made $434,312 in 2020 and is on track for a $350,000 annual pension upon retirement…
The conservative non-profit Judicial Watch sued the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services — NIH’s parent — for documents related to Fauci’s financial affairs in October 2021 [after the agency violated the statutory deadlines contained in the Freedom of Information Act]. HHS has proposed beginning monthly releases starting on Feb. 1, according to court papers.
Thomas Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, accused the NIH of playing a “shell game” with Fauci’s records….NIH did not return a requests for comment.
