Anthony Fauci was the head of the CDC during the pandemic and he recently announced his departure from public service. Yet during the pandemic his net worth has doubled while American households have decreased their worth.
Town Hall reports. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci made out like a bandit during the Covid-19 pandemic, nearly doubling his net worth when millions of Americans were struggling to put food on the table.
According to watchdog group OpenTheBooks, Fauci and his wife saw a $5 million net worth growth, expanding from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million by the end of 2021.
OpenTheBooks CEO Adam Andrzejewski revealed that “While Dr. Fauci has been a government bureaucrat for more than 55 years, his household net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic… Fauci’s soaring net worth was based on career-end salary spiking, lucrative cash prizes awarded by non-profit organizations around the world, and an ever-larger investment portfolio,”
Fox News went in depth on his recent gain in wealth, and turns out Fauci and Pelosi have a lot in common.
Daily caller reports. Fauci’s gains during the pandemic were estimated by Open the Books based on financial disclosures obtained from Republican Sen. Roger Marshall of Kansas and the National Institutes of Health. Fauci announced his intention to retire as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) on Aug. 22.
It is pretty clear that Fauci has done some things that he needs to be held accountable for. With the millions of dollars pouring in, shady stock trades, book deals, and the kickbacks from the pharmaceutical industry there is a lot of meat on the bone for investigators to look into.
