If this medicine thing doesn’t work, Dr. Anthony Fauci still got a job on Wall Street.
The president’s chief medical adviser and his wife had investments of $10.4 million at the end of 2020, newly released records show.
That sum – including $2.3 million in unrealized gains – was held in various mutual funds.
Fauci’s 2020 financial disclosure was publicly released Friday night by Senator Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), whom Fauci called an “idiot” after inquiring about Fauci’s financial disclosure during a Senate hearing Tuesday.
“DR. Fauci was completely dishonest in having his financial information released to the public,” Marshall said in a statement. “DR. Fauci must be held accountable to all Americans who have sued and requested this information but do not have the authority of any Senate office to ask for it.”
Fauci’s 2020 filing — not yet publicly available — details the finances of the nation’s highest-paid federal employee, who reportedly earned $434,312 in 2020 and is on track to a $350,000 annual pension in retirement.
In a mix of trust and retirement accounts, he and his wife hold Atlas large-cap mutual funds, Pimco’s investment-grade bond fund, and a tax-exempt municipal debt fund.
Other holdings include the Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Leadership Fund – which invests in companies highly rated for their “empowerment of women through gender-balanced boards, senior leadership teams and other policies and practices” – and the Matthews Pacific Tiger Fund, which focuses on East Asia concentrates nations, notably China, but excluding Japan.
The filing also revealed between $250,000 and $500,000 in a money market account and between $50,000 and $100,000 in a 529 student account.
Fauci also reported a $1,000 to $15,000 stake in Jackson Fillmore, a San Francisco trattoria in the district of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “The pasta dishes at Jackson are simple and straightforward, but taste like they were made with love,” wrote an Infatuation reviewer.
On the income side, Fauci received royalties ranging from $100,000 to $1 million from McGraw-Hill. And he reported $8,100 in honoraria and travel expenses for virtual appearances at three galas, including the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Foundation’s “Ripple of Hope.”
He also received $5,198 from the Partnership for Public Service after being named the nonprofit’s 2020 Federal Employee of the Year.
Fauci’s finances came under fresh scrutiny this week after Fauci said “misinformed” Senator Marshall just had to “ask” his 2020 disclosure, which he says is available to the public.
Fauci’s employers, the National Institutes for Health, turned over the documents Friday in response to a strongly worded letter to Marshall.
But Fauci’s salary for 2021 and 2022 has yet to be released, according to OpenTheBooks.com’s Adam Andrzejewski.
The conservative nonprofit Judicial Watch sued the US Department of Health and Human Services — the NIH’s parent company — in October 2021 over documents related to Fauci’s financial affairs. HHS has proposed starting February 1 with monthly releases, according to court filings.
Thomas Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, accused the NIH of playing a “shell game” with Fauci’s records.
Its 2019 financial disclosure was released by the NIH in 2020 under a Freedom of Information Act Reporter request.
But the NIH never explained the redactions in the 2019 disclosure — or why it processed that document under FOIA when it told media outlets, including The Post, last week that Fauci’s 2020 filing would need to be filed with the Federal Office for Government Ethics for another Process.
NIH has not returned requests for comment.
