HOUSTON (CW39) Now that he’s back in the spotlight, many may be curious about how much money Dr. Anthony Fauci actually makes.Forbes” recently revealed that he’s actually the highest-paid federal employee in the United States.

As it turns out, Fauci earned $417,608 in 2019. In comparison, the President earns $400,000.

Fauci even a little over twice as much as Senators and members of the House of Representatives who make $174,000 a year. Excluding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who will earn $223,500 this year.

Who makes more between Pelosi and say, a Supreme Court Justice? Chief Justice John Roberts makes $270,700, and a four-star military general rake in $268,000.

Incase you’re wondering is Fauci is pulling stock and investments in what he spouts about the pandemic and COVID-19 vaccine… the answer is no. Absolutely not, because he is a government employee earning a government salary.
