The federal government will soon begin producing some previously-hidden records of meetings by National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, covering the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Production will begin Feb. 1 of some records sought by Judicial Watch and OpenTheBooks.com in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed in federal court last year.
According to JW, the suit seeks “the employment contracts; financial, conflict of interest, and financial disclosure documents; and job description of Dr. Fauci, as well as royalties paid to NIH employees by outside entities.”
JW is also seeking “all calendars or calendar entries for Dr. Anthony Fauci, including calendars maintained on Dr. Fauci’s behalf” for the period between November 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020, as well as the names of those invited to the meetings and notes.
A previous JW suit against uncovered confirmation Fauci’s agency funded gain of function research in Wuhan, China.
“It’s an understatement to say that Dr. Fauci’s daily calendar from the earliest days of the pandemic is in the public interest. By not producing it, NIH is acting like it has a lot to hide,” said Adam Andrzejewski, CEO and founder of OpenTheBooks.com.
“Fauci wields enormous power and the American people have a right to know what he has been up to,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
