The spat between Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Dr Anthony Fauci continued this week when the White House’s chief medical adviser was accused of holding “significant investments” in China.
The pair clashed during a recent Senate committee hearing over Fauci’s salary and financial records. The senator requested and received further financial disclosures, which he then published through his office on January 14.
During a Fox News appearance on Tuesday, Marshall told Sean Hannity that Fauci had lied about his financial records being publicly accessible. Fauci said his earnings have been a matter of public record for nearly four decades.
“But now we know why. Dr Fauci and his spouse made almost $2 million during 2020,” Marshall said. “So during 2020, you’d recall, if you were a bartender or a barber, you couldn’t make a living, but Dr. Fauci managed to squeak together almost $2 million.”
“A significant amount of these investments are investments in China and Hong Kong,” said Marshall. Asked again by Hannity, the senator said: “He had significant investments in China through one of his mutual funds.”
