Fauci Royalties are raising serious concerns with an estimated $350 Million Royalty payment seemingly hidden by NIH.
Acting NIH Director, Dr Lawrence Tabak admits that there does appear to be a conflict of interests in secret royalty payments made to Fauci scientists.
The undisclosed payments estimated in the millions come from pharmaceutical and other firms to Fauci and NIH scientists. Dr Tabak took over as director in Dec 2021, he reported that federal law allows royalty payments but admitted to House Appropriations Committee that these payments did not appear ethical.
NIH gave out $30 billion in grants last year to approx. 56,000 recipients. Dr Fauci is an employee of NIH. Following an investigation, it was revealed that payments also flow the other way, back to NIH and scientists.
These Royalty payments of more than $350 million were paid to NIH scientists, the payments come from third-party, allegedly pharmaceutical companies.
Every payment received has the potential for conflict of interest, millions of dollars are being secretly paid without having to disclose what they are for or how much they are. Federal lawsuit and investigation revealed a withholding of 3,000 pages of royalty information so far.
Agency leadership and top scientists at NIH have received royalty payments.
Andrew Fauci, the highest-paid federal bureaucrat received 23 payments.
Francis Collins NIH director from 2009 to 2021 received 14 payments
Clifford Lane, Fauci’s deputy at NIAID received 8 payments.
The amounts paid are unknown because the figures were deleted.
NIH is reluctant to disclose details, concerns have been raised that as its taxpayer money it should be transparent.
NIH defied the federal Freedom of Information Act law, refusing to acknowledge requests for royalty payment details, and using taxpayer-funded litigation to slow-release documents.
NIH has so far declined to comment.
