New revelations emerge about renowned doctor Anthony Fauci, who invested in Chinese companies with ties to Xi Jinping’s regime.
It was recently revealed that Fauci kept quiet about the possible origin of the COVID-19 pandemic in order not to harm “science in China in particular” and “international harmony.” A week later, it comes to light that Fauci also made investments in companies related to Beijing and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Fauci’s financial disclosure was published by Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS), whom Fauci called a “moron.” The publication revealed that the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) had $10.4 million in investments, including holdings in several funds as of the end of 2020.
A report by journalist Frank Fang, published in The Epoch Times, notes that one fund in particular, Matthews Pacific Tigers, invested 42.7% of the capital in companies based in Hong Kong and China.
Which were the companies that benefited from Fauci’s investments?
According to a fact sheet (here in PDF) released by private investment firm Matthews Asia in September 2021, companies benefiting from investments include Tencent Holdings, Alibaba Group Holdings, Hong Kong Exchange & Clearing Ltd. and Wuxi Biologics Cayman. Some of them have been mentioned by U.S. officials as threats to U.S. security.
Relates Fang that Tencent Holdings is a technology and entertainment conglomerate based in southern China and owns the popular messaging app WeChat, scrutinized by the U.S. government for national security reasons, as the company complies with the Chinese regime’s censorship rules by extending its monitoring to American users of the app.
Alibaba, also benefiting from investments involving Fauci, was named in 2017 by China’s Ministry of Science and Technology as part of the communist regime’s “national team” for the advancement of artificial intelligence.
Another company the fund invested in is Wuxi Biologics Cayman, a Hong Kong-listed biopharmaceutical company with ties to the CCP.
According to a 2021 article published by China’s NetEase news portal, the company was among several Chinese corporations that signed a partnership agreement with the municipal government of Wuxi, a city near Shanghai, to form a “party-building alliance.”
Fauci provided his investment documents to Senator Marshall after the two clashed during a Senate hearing when the congressman confronted him about his financial information.
