(PatrioticPost.com)- It was revealed in January that Dr. Anthony Fauci was the highest-paid employee in the federal government. In 2019, Dr. Death was pulling in $417,608 a year. In 2020, his annual salary jumped to $434,312.
And why exactly was this man getting paid so much?
According to the watchdog group OpenTheBook, the reason this scandal-plagued, lifetime bureaucrat is the top-paid federal employee is because of his work on vaccine development and bioterrorism research.
Obtained through a FOIA request, OpenTheBook found new documents from the NIH that show back when George W. Bush was president, Fauci received a big pay increase for his biodefense research activities.
In short, Anthony Fauci was paid the big bucks to prevent future pandemics.
How’d that work out?
OpenTheBook found that in December 2004, Fauci was approved for a “permanent pay adjustment” in excess of his regular salary. From 2004 through 2007, Fauci’s pay went from $200,000 a year to $335,000 a year, a 68 percent increase. This award was permanent and carried forward through 2020.
Fauci’s permanent bump in pay was to “appropriately compensate him for the level of responsibility… especially as it relates to his work on biodefense research activities.”
Some documents released by OpenTheDoor highlight Fauci’s central role in pandemic preparedness funding and biodefense strategies in the years leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic, including a letter, dated December 15, 2004, from then-Deputy Director Dr. Raynard S. Kingston, which highlights the details of the permanent pay adjustment.
Given the explosive reports that have come out over the last couple of weeks, Fauci’s pay, while infuriating, is not the most horrifying and egregious thing about this odious man.
Last week, in a letter to Congressman James Comer (R-KY), the National Institutes of Health made a startling admission that they had in fact provided funding that went to gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This despite the fact that Dr. Anthony Fauci repeatedly denied the claim under oath before Congress.
Then, through a FOIA request, the watchdog group White Coat Waste Project revealed that from October 2018 until February 2019, NIAID, of which Fauci is the director, spent $1.68 million in taxpayer funds on drug testing involving 44 beagle puppies.
The White Coat Waste Project report claims that the researchers locked the dogs in cages with hungry sandflies so that the insects could eat them alive. Other dogs were also injected with disease-causing parasites.
The man is a highly paid monster.
