Fauci’s Successor at NIAID is a Partisan Democrat Activist Linked to Gain of Function Cover Up Operation
FEC filings show Hugh Auchincloss is heavily involved in D.C. politics.
Hugh Auchincloss served as Anthony Fauci’s right hand man for almost two decades, and he is currently the top bureaucrat at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). With the Biden Administration showing seemingly no interest in appointing a new NIAID chief, Auchincloss has inherited his post in semi-permanent fashion. His role now includes being the chief decision maker for directing billions of taxpayer dollars into the coffers of research institutes and pharmaceutical companies. And with all of the attention turned to the semi-retired Dr Fauci, Auchincloss has been able to operate as the NIAID’s new head honcho without even a hint of a vetting process.

While Fauci did not directly donate to politicians in order to appear as politically neutral (he had relatives and friends act as proxies), FEC filings show Auchincloss hasn’t followed this unwritten rule. The interim NIAID director has donated the vast majority of his 44 political contributions to democrat candidates for office. Most of these expenditures have gone to finance his son, Congressman Jake Auchincloss (who assumed office in 2021), and his successful congressional campaigns. FEC receipts show the NIAID bureaucrat has spent tens of thousands of dollars on his son’s congressional campaigns. Auchincloss and his ex-wife are the top funders to a Super PAC that was established to successfully vault their son, Jake Auchincloss into Congress.
While serving as Fauci’s deputy, Auchincloss also donated to the presidential campaigns of Joe Biden (in 2020, while serving as a top NIAID director in the Trump Administration), Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama. His most recent political donation went to the “MA 4 Dems PAC.”
