Dr. Anthony Fauci thought he was going to have a quiet retirement.
But he was hit with a nasty surprise that he never saw coming.
Now Anthony Fauci is sweating bullets after one shocking number was brought to light.
Dr. Anthony Fauci caused immeasurable economic damage to the country with the lockdowns and closures he pushed during the pandemic.
While he inflicted unprecedented economic misery on the country from his totalitarian policies, Fauci hit the jackpot for himself.
Fauci and his wife, Dr. Christine Grady, saw their net worth increase by $5 million during the pandemic.
Watchdog group OpenTheBooks discovered that Fauci and his wife’s net worth soared from $7.5 million in 2019 to $12.6 million at the close of 2021.
Fauci’s financial gains were driven by awards, investments, royalties, and his compensation as Director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
With a salary of $417,608 per year, Fauci is the highest paid employee of the federal government, bringing home more than even President Joe Biden.
His pension payout of $414,000 a year will be higher than the salary of the President.
“While Dr. Fauci has been a government bureaucrat for more than 55 years, his household net worth skyrocketed during the pandemic,” OpenTheBooks CEO Adam Andrzejewski told Fox News Digital. “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.”
“Despite becoming a figure of controversy, the system has rewarded Dr. Fauci handsomely,” Andrzejewski said. “For example, he is the top-paid federal employee, his first-year golden parachute retirement pension is the largest in federal history, and he’s accepting $1 million prizes from foreign non-profits.”
While families and businesses were struggling from his pandemic policies, Fauci was making out like a bandit.
OpenTheBooks found that, according to government financial disclosure forms, Fauci and his wife’s investment gains topped $900,000 in 2021 after an $800,000 increase in 2020.
At the end of 2021, Fauci’s investment accounts were worth $10.2 million while his wife, Christine Grady, had $2.4 million invested.
Fauci also cashed in on his newfound pandemic fame to rake in award money from various organizations.
He was awarded $1 million in 2021 from the Dan David Foundation for “speaking truth to power” and “defending science” during Trump’s Presidency.
The Eliot Richardson Prize in Public Service and the Abelson Prize from the American Association for the Advancement of Science gave Fauci $12,500 awards.
For editing the medical book Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine and serving on the publisher’s board, he earned $100,000 in 2021.
OpenTheBooks battled to get the bottom of Fauci’s finances.
“We filed four federal lawsuits to follow the money, and documents are starting to be produced,” Andrzejewski added. “Public health guidance during the pandemic has drastically impacted the lives of every citizen, and Dr. Fauci has been its most visible face. It’s critical to know whether any decision-making is tied up in the financial interests of public leaders, whether they’ve made any ethics disclosures to the government, and how they invested.”
Anthony Fauci’s financial bonanza could join the growing list of misdeeds for Congressional Republicans to investigate if they regain control of Congress after November’s Midterm elections.
