The other day Anthony Fauci accused Senator Roger Marshall of being a moron because he didn’t know his financial disclosures were already public record.
Marshall had said his office could not locate the data. Turns out Marshall is not wrong.
According to Forbes, the most recent information is not public record and NIH is refusing to share the data:
It’s not public what Dr. Fauci’s salary was last year or this year. (The latest published salary is from FY2020.)
It’s not public what stocks and bonds Dr. Fauci bought and sold in 2020 or 2021, as he influenced Covid policies.
It’s not public what Fauci received – or didn’t receive – in royalties. (There are up to 1,000 current and former NIH scientists receiving royalties.) Each payment could be a potential conflict of interest.
Yes, all of this information resides with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), but isn’t “public knowledge,” despite Dr. Fauci’s claims otherwise in his sworn U.S. Senate testimony yesterday.
We know this because our organization at OpenTheBooks.com is suing NIH for production of these records. In fact, NIH admits it holds approximately 1,200 pages relating to Fauci’s financial information and conflict of interest disclosures.
NIH should post these documents online immediately.
At Forbes, last January, we published our investigation that Fauci was the most highly compensated federal employee and out-earned the President and four-star generals in the U.S. military.
Many people questioned how Fauci’s pay could exceed 4.3 million federal employees.
So our organization at OpenTheBooks.com starting filing Freedom of Information Act requests on January 25, 2021 with the National Institutes of Health. Here is a list of Fauci’s documents that NIH refused to produce:
- employment contract (with all amendments, changes, or modifications)
- job description
- confidentiality agreements
- conflict of interest disclosures
- financial disclosures
- royalty payments.
In May, we threatened litigation and 51 pages of somewhat-redacted information was released. Within that release, we found the important “permanent pay adjustment” memo from 2004 that revealed for the first time that Fauci was paid to prevent the next pandemic.
Then, NIH went silent and wouldn’t correspond for months. So, last fall, we sued them in federal court. Our lawyers are the public interest, non-profit Judicial Watch in Washington, D.C.
Even with the admission that NIH is holding 1,200 pages of Fauci disclosure information, the agency will only produce 300 pages per month and not even begin to produce documents until February 1st.
What else will we discover about Dr. Fauci with an additional 1,200 pages of disclosure?
So, Fauci lied again. And he did it with such disdain for the Senator, showing great contempt by insulting him under his breath and then going on TV to explain how much of an idiot Marshall is.
Marshall retweeted the article yesterday when it came out and went on Laura Ingraham’s show to explain that Fauci lied:

Why is NIH hiding these disclosures? Is Fauci trying to get rich off the pandemic? Is that what is guiding his decisions about masks and vaccines?
