Fauci retired but still gets limo and security detail

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) confirmed former Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci is receiving government-funded security detail despite his alleged retirement.

While appearing on Jesse Watters Primetime on Monday, Paul said Health and Human Services admitted that the United States Marshals Service is paying for Fauci’s security detail but that HHS is reimbursing it.

“We asked HHS early in the summer — we said, ‘Is he still working, and does he have this limo, and does he have a driver, and does he have a security detail?’ Well, HHS actually came back to us and said they haven’t been paying for it since January,” Paul said.

“But then, we discovered that Fox did a Freedom of Information Act, and a judge forced them to say that while HHS wasn’t directly funding it, the U.S. Marshals were funding it. So can you imagine we asked the government, ‘Are you funding his limo, and driver, and security detail,’ and they say, ‘Oh, we’re not doing it, but oh, somebody else is doing it, and we’re reimbursing them’?” he added. “It’s a terrible example of the government lying to its representatives and to the people.”

Paul said he is unsure why Fauci is receiving such services if he is retired.

“The only retired official I know of that gets this kind of treatment is a former president. So I have no idea why this bureaucrat still has a limo driver, security detail,” Paul said. “And we want to know: Does he still get legal representation? … Because he may need that eventually.”

Paul suggested that Fauci has the financial means to pay for his own security detail and legal defense.

“He’s a rich man. His wealth increased by 30% during the pandemic,” Paul noted.
