Thank god for the Freedom of Information Act!
Without it, we would’ve known uncovered the truth about Dr. Fauci and the mad science organization he controls, the National Institutes of Health.
The National Institutes of Health received verified royalties amounting to $134 million from 2009-2014, with more yet to be revealed, according to a newly-released report from Open the Books.
Open the Books, a non-partisan and non-profit watchdog group, is currently in the process of uncovering the truth behind Dr. Fauci’s massive paydays behind the scenes.
The nonprofit organization filed the FOIA request last September, receiving 1,200 pages of heavily redacted royalties from 2009-2014 that add up to 22,100 royalty payments to 17,000 NIH scientists. With the redaction, it is impossible to tell how much each scientist received, only the aggregate total of each department, which adds up to $134 million.
According to a non-profit watchdog group called Open the Books, Dr. #AnthonyFauci, Dr. #FrancisCollins, as well as hundreds of other scientists at the #NIH have been paid an estimated $350 million worth of undisclosed royalties.

Another set of 1,800 royalty pages, meant to cover 2015-2020, has yet to be handed over to Open the Books, but it is estimated that payments reached a total of $350 million by 2020. The nonprofit organization is also in a lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services for failing to comply with three FOIA requests, including this most recent one.
Open the Books CEO Andrzejewski claimed that the pages were finally produced as “the result of our federal lawsuit.”
Among the royalty recipients are National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci, who received 23 royalty payments, 2009-2021 NIH Director Francis Collins, who was given 14 payments, and Fauci deputy Clifford Lane, who tallied 8 payments.
Andrzejewski’s organization is also seeking greater transparency regarding Fauci himself and filed a FOIA request in January 2021 to discover what his current job description consists of.
At first, the NIH only turned over 51 pages, but after being ordered by a U.S. district judge to respond to the request fully, it has begun handing over 300 pages a month since April.
A 2015 report found that over 900 NIH scientists received $9 million since 1997. The report prompted the institute to implement a policy to disclose royalty payments from then on.
Where is this money coming from, you ask?
Well, in addition to Fauci’s immense taxpayer-funded salary, the federal government apparently rewards his NIH with million-dollar royalties for unknown reasons. Once the information is recovered via FOIA requests, Congress must act to expose the truth behind the mad scientists we trusted to dig America out of this pandemic.
