During the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Americans became suspicious that Big Government was getting too cozy with Big Pharma. Now, newly revealed information has shown that they have been lying to the American public.

According to shocking data from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the agency and its scientists received at least $710 million in royalties during the COVID-19 pandemic from late 2021 to 2023.

Data showed that these were payments made by private companies, such as pharmaceuticals, to license medical innovations from government scientists.

The bulk of the royalties, totaling at least $690 million, went to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the institute led by Dr. Anthony Fauci, and 260 of its scientists.

Information about this vast private royalty complex is kept under wraps by the NIH. However, Adam Andrzejewski’s organization was forced to sue to disclose the royalties paid from September 2009 to October 2021.

Overall, the royalties amounted to $325 million over 56,000 transactions.

OpenTheBooks was also forced to sue a second time, with Judicial Watch as their counsel, to push for the recent release. (Related: Cancer cases are increasing due to COVID vaccines, but Big Government and Big Pharma want you to look the other way.)

Payments were at their peak during the COVID-19 pandemic. Those years saw more than twice the amount of cash flow to NIH from the private sector, compared to the prior 12 combined. Overall, the payments totaled $1.036 billion.

However, it’s still unknown if any of the COVID-19 vaccine royalties from Pfizer and Moderna, the latter of which settled with NIH by agreeing to pay $400 million, is included in these new figures.

The NIH is refusing to give more details about the matter.

Andrzejewski, the founder of, aims to “capture and post all disclosed spending at every level of government – federal, state and local.”

In 2022, OpenTheBooks filed 50,000 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and gained access to 25 million public employee pension and salary records. The organization also broke open the California state checkbook for the first time in American history.

Lawmakers condemn health officials for evading public record laws

In May, House Republicans accused NIH officials of coordinating “a conspiracy at the highest levels” of the agency to hide public records linked to the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. Lawmakers also vowed to expand an investigation that produced damning emails wherein senior health officials freely discussed their efforts to avoid federal records laws.

The latest accusations represent the effort of lawmakers to link American research groups and the country’s top medical research agency with the beginnings of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To date, that push has yielded no evidence that American scientists or health officials had anything to do with the pandemic.

However, the House panel, the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, released several private emails that suggest at least some NIH officials deleted messages and tried to elude public records laws because of scrutiny of the origins of the pandemic.

Some emails have even implied that the NIH officials who had to produce records under the FOIA may have helped their colleagues avoid their obligations under that law. The Freedom of Information Act ( gives people the right to obtain copies of federal records.

In February 2021, Morens emailed that he “learned from [their] foia lady here how to make emails disappear after [he] am foia’d but before the search starts.”

The email chain included Dr. Gerald Keusch, a scientist and former NIH official, and Peter Daszak, the president of EcoHealth Alliance, a virus-hunting nonprofit group. In the past, EcoHealth has been criticized by lawmakers for its work with Chinese scientists.

Referring to his personal Gmail account, Morens added that he had “deleted most of those earlier emails after sending them to gmail.”

House Republicans released additional emails that they claimed implicated another NIH official in what was described as “efforts to evade public records laws.”

In one of those emails from June 2021, Greg Folkers, a former chief of staff to Fauci, was discussing global biosafety practices and referred to a fact sheet from EcoHealth.

Folkers wrote the group’s name as “Ec~Health,” a misspelling that lawmakers claimed was intended to keep the email from being caught in keyword searches to fulfill FOIA requests related to EcoHealth.

Andrzejewski warned that the NIH is still redacting pieces of the data that would help organizations like OpenTheBooks connect therapeutics with their government-paid inventors.

For example, the agency refuses to show OpenTheBooks the amount of royalties paid to each scientist, making it hard for the nonprofit to follow the money as closely as possible.
