U.S. Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) has published Dr. Fauci’s unredacted financial records and is accusing him of being misleading when he claimed his financial disclosure forms were publicly available in Senate testimony.
Fauci’s financial disclosure documents were evidently not in the searchable database as other federal officials’ documents are. They can be requested from the National Institutes of Health which can refuse to provide them or delay handing them over. The disclosures are supposed to be available for review by the public and Fauci had insinuated that they were easily obtainable.
“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 and holding China accountable for the COVID pandemic that has taken the lives of almost 850 thousand Americans,” Marshall remarked to Fox News Digital in a statement.
“Just like he has misled the American people about sending taxpayers dollars to Wuhan, China, to fund gain-of-function research, about masks, testing, and more, Dr. Fauci was completely dishonest about his financial disclosures being open to the public — it’s no wonder he is the least trusted bureaucrat in America,” the senator asserted.
“At the end of the day, 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,” Marshall proclaimed.
🚨🚨 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 Fauci’s previously unpublished financial disclosures.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.

Marshall’s office only received Fauci’s financial information after filing an Office of Government Ethics request with the National Institutes of Health (NIH). At that point, it was either release the documents or be guilty of an ethics violation and get exposed for blatant non-disclosure. To say that Fauci was being knowingly deceptive appears to be an understatement. Obtaining Fauci’s records from the NIH can take months.
For instance, the Center for Public Integrity submitted a request for Fauci’s financial disclosures to the NIH in May of 2020 but they did not receive the information until August. When the organization did receive the documents under the Freedom of Information Act, they were partially redacted. Again, transparency is an issue it would seem with Fauci.
OpenTheBooks.org is suing the NIH for the full disclosure of Fauci’s financial records.
When Marshall pointed out during a Senate hearing on Tuesday that Fauci’s financial disclosures were not publicly available online after the White House chief medical advisor claimed otherwise, Fauci lost his temper. A hot mic caught him calling the senator a “moron” and taking the Lord’s name in vain. He also called Marshall “so misinformed, it’s extraordinary.”

“We cannot find them. Our office cannot find them. Where would they be if they are public knowledge?” Marshall asked during the hearing.
“It is totally accessible to you if you want it,” Fauci sneered.
“For the public? Is it accessible to the public?” Marshall continued to ask.
“To the public, to the public!” Fauci insisted.
“Great, we look forward to reviewing it,” Marshall stated.
Marshall has now announced that he will introduce the Financial Accountability for Uniquely Compensated Individuals (FAUCI) Act forcing elected officials to make their financial disclosures public and available to all Americans.
The act would also require the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) to publish a list of government officials whose financial disclosures are not publicly available.
I plan to introduce the FAUCI Act to hold Anthony Fauci and other high-paid government officials accountable. If you’re an unelected bureaucrat, and you make hundreds of thousands of dollars, America needs to know if you have any conflicts of interest. pic.twitter.com/AmhbViegrC

Marshall fired off a letter to Fauci that cited a New York Post article where a spokesperson for him was unable to produce the disclosures. Forbes reported that Fauci’s salary, stock, bond purchases, and royalty payments for this year and last year are not available to the public.
“As the highest-paid employee in the entire federal government,” Marshall asked Fauci during Senate testimony, “yes or no, would you be willing to submit to Congress and the public a financial disclosure that includes your past and current investments?”
“I don’t understand why you’re asking me that question,” Fauci angrily replied. “My financial disclosure is public knowledge and has been so for the last 37 years or so, 35 years.”
