Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor in the White House, is flush with cash after newly released financial records show that he raked in $10.4 million in investments at the end of 2020, a year when most Americans were financially struggling because of the devastation caused by the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent shutdowns.
On Tuesday, Dr. Fauci attended a Senate Hearing on Capitol Hill to discuss issues regarding Covid and was lambasted by Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., who accused Fauci of being, “A planner who believes he is ‘the science,’ leads to an arrogance that justifies, in his mind, using government resources to smear and destroy the reputations of other scientists who disagree with him.”
During the Senate trial, Fauci claimed that “My financial disclosures are public knowledge and have been so. It is totally accessible to you, if you want it. To the public.” However, until Friday, U.S. Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., revealed in an official statement that the documents had not been made public until he requested them.
The financial disclosures also reveal that the $10.4 million investments that Dr. Fauci possessed were held in different mutual funds. According to the New York Post, Dr. Fauci also made $434,312 in 2020 and is set to draw $350,000 from his pension when he retires – a massive sum that most Americans could only dream of having.
Sen. Marshall continued in his official statement, “Dr. Fauci lied to the American people. He is more concerned with being a media star and posing for the cover of magazines than he is being honest with the American people…”
