Dr. Anthony Fauci was caught on a hot microphone mumbling that Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) was a “moron” during his testimony in a Senate proceeding Tuesday. Fauci was fuming after Senator Marshall inquired about his 2020 financial disclosures which he repeatedly suggested was public information.
However, the information was not public until Senator Marshall released them publicly Friday night; it turns out Fauci is a wealthy, wealthy man with $10.4 million in investments. In a statement, Marshall said:
“Dr. Fauci was completely dishonest about his financial disclosures being open to the public…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 has recently come under scrutiny as it was revealed that he is 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” reports the New York Post.
According to OpenTheBooks.com, Fauci’s 2021 and 2022 salaries have still not been released. Fauci claimed Senator Marshall was “misinformed” and only had to “ask for” his 2020 disclosure which he said was open to the public.
Marshall tweeted Friday evening: “BREAKING! I obtained Dr. Fauci’s previously unpublished financial disclosures. Dr. Fauci was completely dishonest about his disclosures being readily accessible to the public which is why I am releasing them now.”
The New York Post reports of the finances disclosed:
In a mix of trust and retirement accounts, he and his wife hold Atlas large-cap mutual funds, Pimco’s investment-grade bond fund, and a tax-exempt municipal debt fund.
Other holdings include the Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Leadership Fund — which invests in companies highly-rated for “advancing women through gender-diverse boards, senior leadership teams and other policies and practices” — and the Matthews Pacific Tiger Fund, which focuses on East Asian nations, in particular China, but excluding Japan.
The filing also disclosed between $250,000 and $500,000 in a money-market account and between $50,000 and $100,000 in a 529 tuition account.
Fauci also reported a stake worth between $1,000 and $15,000 in Jackson Fillmore, a trattoria in San Francisco, within the district of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “The pasta dishes at Jackson are simple and straightforward, but taste like they are made with love,” an Infatuation reviewer wrote.
On the income side, Fauci was paid between $100,000 and $1 million in royalties by McGraw-Hill. And he reported $8,100 in honoria and travel reimbursements for virtually appearing at three galas, including the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation’s “Ripple of Hope.”
He also got $5,198 from the Partnership for Public Service after being named the non-profit’s 2020 federal employee of the year.
