America First Legal Files Formal Demands for Investigations into the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and Dr. Anthony Fauci for Violating Federal Laws Relating to the Use of Personal Emails for Official Government Business

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, America First Legal (AFL) requested that the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and the Office of the Special Counsel (OSC) open investigations into the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) and Drs. Anthony Fauci and David Morens, the former Director and advisor of NIAID, respectively, for allegedly violating the Federal Records Act and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

In May of this year, AFL demanded a multi-front federal government investigation into Dr. David Morens, Dr. Fauci’s senior advisor, for attempting to circumvent FOIA requests by secretly conducting official business through a personal email address. Dr. Morens’ unlawful removal of government records may have included other agency leaders, such as Dr. Fauci, leading to the agency as a whole intentionally bypassing federal laws. 

OSC has the authority to investigate arbitrary and capricious withholding of information by NIAID, and the HHS OIG is authorized to investigate Federal Records Act violations by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and is mandated to expeditiously report evidence of such violations to the Attorney General. 

There can be no tolerance for intentionally disobeying federal law – Dr. Fauci is no exception. 

Statement from Dan Epstein, America First Legal Vice President: 

“AFL’s requests supplement the Oversight Committee’s work and help determine whether Dr. Fauci evaded government transparency and records preservation requirements. The numerous examples of FOIA and records law violations by the current administration would be merely regrettable but for the woeful irony of lawfare against the former President for alleged records violations. Accountability and fairness are therefore key.“ said Dan Epstein.
