The phrase for 2022 is “don’t mess with people who have power over you.” Dr. Anthony Fauci called Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) a moron and is about to regret it. Marshall released all of the financial documents, unredacted, that Fauci said were public records.
Marshall noted that Fauci makes $434,000 a year and said that with Fauci overseeing “$5 billion in federal research grants,” if Fauci would be “willing to submit to Congress and the public a financial disclosure.”
After exchanging words with one another, Fauci said, “What a moron! Jesus Christ.”
Fauci’s financial record wasn’t searchable by the public, but Marshall obtained the documents and released them. That means that Fauci was lying about his financial record being public, to make that yet another time, Fauci has lied to Congress.
It turns out that Fauci seems to be more concerned with making public appearances for money than solving problems for the country.
Fauci and his wife made $13,298, attending three virtual ceremonies and gala and 1 in person. Let that sink in.
Fauci made $5,000 at another virtual award ceremony hosted by RFK Ripple of Hope, $1,600 to attend ‘An Evening of Hope,’ and $1,500 at a virtual ‘Prepared for Life’ gala. That’s sickening. These are virtual events where Fauci didn’t even have to put pants on, and he’s making thousands of dollars.
Whatever you think of Fauci, there’s no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic and the AIDS outbreak are two areas that would have gotten many other people fired or at least stripped them of their credibility. But, Fauci seems to play by a different set of rules.
Fauci is also set to make a federal pension of $350,000 annually.
Marshall will introduce the Financial Accountability for Uniquely Compensated Individuals Act which will hold public officials like Fauci accountable and allow their financial records to be publicly accessible. The bill would also allow the public to request access and “list all confidential filers within the government whose financial disclosures are not public.” That would be a monumental move toward transparency in the federal government.
Liz Essley Whyte, a reporter for the Center for Public Integrity, said, “I first asked the NIH for Fauci’s disclosure on May 18, 2020, and didn’t receive it until Aug. 5.” Whyte also said it was obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, and the document was partially redacted.
There’s not going to be some magical solution to the problem if the problem is solved at all. Fauci can’t keep continuing the way he has if the United States will have any confidence in the federal government moving forward. There’s already been so much distrust instilled in the public from Fauci’s nonsensical suggestions, mandates, and policies that he’s pushed forward. Fauci’s credibility is shot.
