When it comes to investigating government corruption, Judicial Watch is on the forefront. One of the organization’s latest investigations looks at the COVID crisis, where it is seeking to uncover potential conflicts of interest that might have affected or might be affecting the work of Dr. Fauci’s agency, the National Institutes of Health. As Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton discusses in the Judicial Watch Weekly Update, “Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit on behalf of our allies in the movement for transparency –‘openthebooks.com’ – against the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for the employment contracts, conflict of interest, and confidentiality disclosure documents; and job description of Dr. Fauci. Plus, we want details on the royalties paid to NIH employees by outside entities.” As Fitton reminds viewers, “certain government officials have side jobs that result in income to them … but because of the potential conflicts of interest, that income needs to be disclosed.”
As Fitton states, “Anthony Fauci wields unrivaled political power in our Federal government, so it is urgent the American people have full access to his financial disclosures. That we had to file a federal lawsuit about Dr. Fauci’s financial disclosures and other basic employment information raises a host of concerning questions.” As Fitton reminds viewers, Judicial Watch previously uncovered how Fauci’s agency “sign[ed] off on confidentiality terms dictated by China,” and how Fauci “personally approved a press release that went out of its way to praise China.” Fitton adds that Judicial Watch “also uncovered the full scope of the spending on the Wuhan Institute by Fauci’s agency.” Judicial Watch latest lawsuit for Fauci’s financial and other employment information is on behalf of OpentheBooks.com.
“If you want to hold Dr. Fauci accountable,” Fitton concludes, “you’ll want to support Judicial Watch.”
