In a scathing attack on Dr. Anthony Fauci, Republican Senator Rand Paul has exposed the fact that the “retired” ex-director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is still enjoying the luxury of a taxpayer-funded security detail. This revelation came to light when documents obtained by the “Jesse Watters Primetime” show revealed that the US Marshals Service took over the responsibility for Fauci’s security at the beginning of 2023, after the Department of Health & Human Services handed it over. This news has left Sen. Paul outraged and demanding answers from the Biden administration.

During his show, host Jesse Watters revealed that a source’s tip prompted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the US Marshals, which uncovered the shocking truth about Fauci’s ongoing security arrangements. The documents not only confirmed the existence of a taxpayer-funded security detail but also revealed other perks that the retired bureaucrat is enjoying, such as limousine transportation. Sen. Paul expressed his surprise at the fact that Fauci, who is allegedly retired, is receiving such extravagant treatment. He questioned why the government is providing a retired official with a limo driver security detail, a privilege typically reserved for former presidents.
This scandal took an even stranger turn when it was discovered that while the Department of Health & Human Services claimed they were not directly funding Fauci’s security detail, the US Marshals were indeed footing the bill. This revelation exposed a classic example of the government lying to its representatives and the people. Sen. Paul expressed his frustration and concern, demanding an explanation for why someone who is supposedly retired is still receiving such a high level of security and why the taxpayer is being burdened with the expense.
To add insult to injury, Sen. Paul questioned whether Fauci is also receiving pro bono legal representation in his retirement. He pointed out that Fauci’s wealth has actually increased by 30% during the pandemic, suggesting that he should be able to afford his own security without relying on taxpayer money. This raises important questions about Fauci’s current employment status and whether he is still entitled to certain taxpayer-funded benefits associated with active public services. Sen. Paul’s determination to hold Fauci and the Biden administration accountable for these discrepancies is commendable.
It is not surprising that Sen. Paul is skeptical about Fauci’s retirement status. After all, Fauci himself has given conflicting statements about his future plans. While he claimed to be leaving his position in order to start “the next chapter” of his career, he also stated in media appearances that he is not retiring. These mixed messages have raised doubts about Fauci’s true intentions and have prompted Sen. Paul to seek clarification from the Biden administration. He rightly pointed out that Fauci’s ambiguous statements leave room for interpretation and raise questions about his continued receipt of taxpayer-funded benefits.
In conclusion, Sen. Rand Paul has exposed a troubling truth about Dr. Anthony Fauci. Despite being labeled as retired, Fauci continues to enjoy taxpayer-funded security and other perks. This raises serious concerns about the government’s honesty and the fairness of these arrangements. Sen. Paul’s demand for answers and his determination to hold Fauci and the Biden administration accountable is a testament to his commitment to transparency and the responsible use of taxpayer dollars. Fauci should not be treated like a president when he is no longer serving in a government position, and it is high time that the truth about his employment status and tax-funded benefits be revealed.
