(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The government’s quadrupled-boosted pandemic adviser was addressed in a Senate session by his adversary, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, one day after the country heard he had tested positive for COVID-19.
Dr. Anthony Fauci acknowledged on Thursday that there were no studies to back up the claim that booster doses will lower the risk of hospitalization and mortality in children when questioned about the security and effectiveness of COVID vaccinations.
Fauci declined to say whether drug makers paid members of the FDA vaccine advisory group royalties.
According to government records obtained through a lawsuit, over a decade, the National Institutes of Health, agency scientists, and executives like Fauci collected a total of $350 million in royalties from third parties, like pharmaceutical corporations. Only the total amount received by each scientist and the overall amount for each NIH agency are given in the heavily redacted NIH papers. The dollar amount of each payment is obscured.
Paul questioned Fauci on Thursday about his ability to say that he has not received a royalty from any organization that he ever controlled the distribution of money and research funding.
The senator asked if anyone on the vaccine committee had ever taken money from the people developing vaccines? Please let me know. Would you please let me know if the vaccine’s manufacturers have ever compensated any members of the vaccine approval committees?
Fauci cut him off, saying he wanted to offer Paul some information. According to the regulations, Fauci noted that those who earn royalties are not compelled to disclose them even on their financial statement according to the Bayh Dole Act.
The law permits people to own their patents from publicly supported research and make money from them. According to Fauci, he earned very modest royalties between 2015 and 2020 for the monoclonal antibodies his group produced.
Fauci informed the senators that during that time, his royalties ranged from $21 to $7,700 annually, with an average of $191.46.
Paul questioned Fauci about research demonstrating COVID booster doses lower hospitalization and child mortality.
Fauci was unable.
The senator noted, with no refutation by Fauci, that no studies show a reduction in hospitalization or death with taking a booster.
Still, the government wants to vaccinate children.
