Fauci family fares very well in pandemic

By Jordan Boyd, The Federalist

While Americans who were forced to stay at home by tyrannical politicians and health bureaucrats struggled to make ends meet during the pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s household raked in $1,776,479.

According to Fauci’s financial disclosures obtained by Open The Books, the federal government paid Fauci and his wife Christine Grady, who also works at the National Institutes of Health, $868,812 in combined income and benefits in 2020. In addition to their federal salaries, the Fauci household also received royalties and stipends totaling at least $113,298 while their investment accounts increased by $794,369.

These financial increases pushed the Fauci household’s net worth beyond $10.4 million. Previously released financial disclosures from 2019 had already indicated the federal government paid Fauci $417,608 making him the highest-paid federal employee that year.

In a Senate Health Committee hearing last week, Sen. Roger Marshall asked if the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director would be “willing to submit to Congress and the public a financial disclosure that includes your past and current investments?”

“I cannot find them. Our office cannot find them. Where would they be if they are public knowledge?” Marshall asked.

In response, the health bureaucrat claimed that “my financial disclosure is public knowledge” and said the Kansas Republican was “so misinformed, it’s extraordinary” and called him a “moron” on a hot mic.

The next day, Marshall penned a letter to Fauci and the NIH demanding they hand over the financial disclosures. Marshall even created the Financial Accountability for Uniquely Compensated Individuals Act (FAUCI) which would require government officials’ financial records to be published.

While NIH finally relented and supplied unredacted information to Marshall, the agency did not release Fauci’s government salary for 2021 or 2022. The Forbes report suggests, however, that when Fauci retires, “he’ll reap a retirement pension estimated at $350,000 per year.”

    It is interesting that Fauci’s earnings from 2020 and 2021 were not released. We know what his net worth was in 2019. The question is, what is his net worth now?

    Unrealized capital gains and options won’t show up until later. Shrewd investors can always “park” the income out of sight, they don’t all brag about it like Pelosi.
