The Center for Public Integrity submitted a request for Fauci’s financial disclosures with the NIH in May 2020, but did not receive the information until August of that year. When the organization did receive it, it was produced under the Freedom of Information Act and came back partially redacted.
The NIH is currently being sued for the production of Fauci’s financial records by watchdog organization OpenTheBooks.org.
Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit on behalf of https://t.co/h4AxlvT1ZF against the HHS for the employment contracts; financial, conflict of interest, and confidentiality disclosure documents; and job description of Fauci. READ: https://t.co/rxbCjsuEIe

Fauci is already the highest-paid federal employee and he’s going to have a huge retirement package.
He was the single highest-paid federal employee for the second consecutive year in 2021, earning more than President Joe Biden, four-star generals and roughly 4.3 million other government workers. As director of the NIAID, Fauci earned $434,312 in 2020, the latest year available, up from $417,608 in 2019 and $399,625 in 2018.
The U.S. Office of Personnel Management says federal employees with Fauci’s length of service can retire to earn 80% percent of their highest 3-year average salary, plus credit for their sick leave. While admitting his (as yet unavailable) 2021 and 2022 salaries are likely higher, using his 2018-2020 salaries, Forbes auditors calculated that if he’d retired at the end of FY 2020, he’d receive a federal pension of $333,745 a year, plus cost-of-living increases.
