Americans recently learned that former White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci and his wife have amassed enormous personal wealth during the COVID-19 pandemic. The couple’s combined net worth now exceeds $11 million.
At the same time, Fauci notoriously called for economic lockdowns and overly restrictive COVID-related policies that financially ruined many American families and small businesses.
Fauci’s skyrocketing net worth is causing Americans to take a closer look at his long history of lies, hypocrisy, and flip-flops.
The disgraced medical expert is officially the subject of a criminal referral sent by Congressman Rand Paul to the U.S. Department of Justice. Senator Paul says there has never been “a clearer case of perjury in the history of government testimony” after Fauci allegedly lied under oath.
Here’s a look at Fauci’s 3 biggest lies to America:
Number One: At a Senate hearing in May, Dr. Fauci said, “The NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.’ That was under oath, under testimony. On October 20th, the NIH principal deputy director in writing directly contradicted it.” (Poll: Is Joe Biden Fit to be President? VOTE)
Often referred to as Fauci’s “biggest lie,” Americans were told that our taxpayer dollars were not being sent to China to fund gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. During an important moment for the country, critics say Fauci was more concerned about protecting himself than telling the truth to Americans.
Rand Paul tears into Fauci:

In doing so, Fauci sunk to a level of dishonor and disgrace that few people saw coming. As the nation’s top medical advisor, Fauci had a duty to be truthful and forthcoming to Americans. On the other hand, as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), it would look very bad if his agency was part of the problem. Fauci apparently found the latter to be unlivable and he opted instead to lie to America and save himself.
Fauci continues to claim that he “never lied before Congress.”
Senator Paul said, “I don’t think there’s ever been a clearer case of perjury in the history of government testimony, and I don’t say that lightly. He said adamantly that the government never funded this gain-of-function research. We now have the Government Accountability Office, the GAO, has admitted that the funding came from the NIH,” he continued. “We have the acting director [Lawrence] Tabak, of the NIH, admitting it in writing that it came from the NIH. But now we have, really, the smoking gun, and that is Fauci in private saying the opposite of what he was saying in public when he was publicly telling me that absolutely, we do not fund gain-of-function research in China,” Paul added.
“He says privately we are suspicious that the virus has been manipulated and we are suspicious because we know they are doing gain-of-function research,” the senator said. “He then goes on to describe the research, and it’s exactly the research that the NIH funded. So he’s caught dead to rights here, but we have an incredibly partisan Attorney General [Merrick] Garland, who is refusing to act, so I’ve taken the extraordinary step of actually going to the local U.S. attorney in D.C. to see if he will act.”
“The problem is there are partisans littered throughout the legal system, and people are seeing this. You don’t get prosecuted if you’re a Democrat under this administration, no matter what you do,” Paul concluded.
Number Two: In February 2023, at 82 years old, Fauci said, “We must all keep an open mind to all possibilities [about the origins of the coronavirus]. We may never know [the source of the outbreak]. I don’t see any data for a lab leak.”
To this day, Fauci lies that there is no data to show the Wuhan lab in China is responsible for the origins of COVID-19. Again, Fauci has developed a habit of lying to protect himself.
Multiple federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Energy as well as the FBI, have officially declared that they have confidence that the COVID-19 pandemic was caused by a lab leak in Wuhan, China. FBI Director Christopher Wray did not mince words on the topic. “The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan,” Wray said.
FBI Director Wray pointed the finger at the Chinese Communists for interfering with any investigation into the lab. “Here you are talking about a potential leak from a Chinese government-controlled lab,” the FBI director said. “I will just make the observation that the Chinese government, it seems to me, has been doing its best to try to thwart, and obfuscate the work here, the work that we’re doing, the work that our U.S. government and close foreign partners are doing. And that’s unfortunate for everybody.”
Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan agreed that it’s not possible for the leak to have occurred accidentally. “Of course, it was not an accident. I can tell you based on the protocol and also the other surveillance system it will be impossible for the lab leak accidentally happen in such a lab and also cause the Wuhan outbreak and also the pandemic.”
Fauci cannot admit to himself and to Americans that COVID-19 originated in a lab that his agency funded with U.S. tax dollars. This conclusion is too much to bear.
However, Fauci likely never believed that his private email correspondence would fall into the hands of Americans. “They only took about 10,000 emails from me, of course I remember,” Fauci complained. “I remember all 10,000 of them. Give me a break,” he said sarcastically about not remembering what he wrote over email.
In 2020, Fauci wrote multiple emails confirming that he was aware of data pointing to the possibility of a lab leak as the origins of COVID-19. Fauci suggested to NIH director Francis Collins and others that he needs top medical advisors to publicly downplay this lab leak theory.

In February 2020, Fauci wrote an email that he is aware of the “sequences of several isolates of the nCoV, there were mutations in the virus that would be most unusual to have evolved naturally in the bats and that there was a suspicion that this mutation was intentionally inserted. The suspicion was heightened by the fact that scientists in Wuhan University are known to have been working on gain-of-function experiments to determine the molecular mechanisms associated with bat viruses adapting to human infection, and the outbreak originated in Wuhan.”
Ultimately, not only was Fauci willing to lie publicly, he was privately telling others to lie for him.
Number Three: In June 2021, Fauci said, “Attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science. All of the things I have spoken about, consistently, from the very beginning, have been fundamentally based on science. Sometimes those things were inconvenient truths for people.”
In what crisis have dubbed “the most narcissistic statement of all-time,” Fauci argued that criticism of him is really a critique of science itself. It’s evident that Fauci views himself as the embodiment and true personification of science. He believes that when Fauci speaks, it’s really science speaking. And thus, his statements must always be factual and true.

In reality, Fauci is human and flawed like the rest of us. He regularly makes mistakes and even lies. In fact, it’s precisely Fauci’s dangerous level of narcissism and egomania that can makes him more prone to mistakes and lies as he aims to protect himself above all else. This is why Fauci predominantly lies about things that would personally make him look bad. (Poll: Should Athletes Kneel During National Anthem? VOTE)
I just finished the Fauci documentary on Disney+ so you don't have to. Here is what was, for me, the defining image: Fauci at work in his home office, beneath a larger-than-lifesize oil painting portrait of himself. pic.twitter.com/hugD4EgLY8

Inside Fauci’s home, his gigantic office walls are “adorned with portraits of him, drawn and painted by some of his many fans.” Reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg says, “It was a revealing glimpse into the psyche of America’s most loved and hated doctor.”
