An investigation into Dr. Anthony Fauci’s finances has uncovered evidence that the former top federal health official’s net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic.
The Washington D.C. watchdog group Open the Books has been investigating Fauci during the time he served as the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) from 1984 to 2022 and as the chief medical advisor to Democrat President Joe Biden from 2021 to 2022.
The probe found that during Fauci’s almost four decades in federal service, his net worth more than doubled during the pandemic.
Fauci’s net worth suddenly increased from $7.6 million to $12.6 million dollars in the last couple of years of his career.
The spike means Fauci’s personal wealth soared by 65 percent during the pandemic.
Open the Books founder Adam Andrzejewski detailed the investigation during an appearance on Fox Business’s “The Evening Edit” on Tuesday night.
Andrzejewski joined the show to discuss the Energy Department’s latest admission that the COVID-19 virus originated from a laboratory leak in Wuhan, China.
During his appearance, Andrzejewski discussed how Dr. Fauci’s wealth has skyrocketed.
Adam Andrzejewski: We’re letting China get away with too much.
And it’s been going on for decades. It’s a Chinese strategy.
For example, last fall, our organization at OpenTheBooks.com openthebooks.com, we highlighted the strider technologies report, where up to 150 former employees of the los alamos national lab, our crown jewel national lab, aren’t working in America anymore.
They’re working back in China on behalf of the Chinese communist party and against our military national interests…
…We investigated Dr. Fauci because I don’t even think it’s arguable that he is one of the most powerful bureaucrats ever in the history of the country.
And obviously, in crafting America’s COVID response during the pandemic, we gave oversight to the Fauci family finances.
Here’s what we found, Liz:
We found that Dr. Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee, and he out-earned the president.
Last year, he made $480,000.
And Mrs. Fauci, Christine Grady, she’s employed as the chief bioethicist at Fauci’s employer, the National Institutes of Health.
So while Fauci was crafting national healthcare pandemic policies, she was backstopping those policies through her office on ethics and moral studies.
She actually out-earned the vice president of the United States.
Now, Dr. Fauci’s retired at the end of the year, and he’s retired on the largest pension in federal history. We estimate that pension at $375,000 a year…
…We’ve researched a 50-page document that empirically shows that as Dr. Fauci’s positions during the Pandemic changed Mrs. Fauci’s positions on ethics studies during the Pandemic changed to match her husband’s positions.
And so we’ll be ready in a couple of weeks to release that report.
Look, Dr. Fauci’s net worth, we showed that during the Pandemic years of 2019 through 2021, it increased from $7.6 million to $12.6 million.
We show exactly how Fauci profited during the Pandemic.
Fauci’s personal wealth expanded massively during the period when his decisions put millions of Americans out of work.
While it may have been a struggle for many, the pandemic was certainly very good for Fauci.
