Judicial Watch Files FOIA Lawsuit for NIH Emails of Dr. Fauci’s Spouse, Christine Grady

(Washington, DC)Judicial Watch announced today that it has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for the emails of National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Chief of the Clinical Center’s Department of Bioethics Christine Grady referencing the COVID-19 vaccine and antibody enhancement. Grady is the spouse of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (Judicial Watch. v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (No. 1:22-cv-02112)). The FOIA lawsuit also seeks all emails sent between Grady and Fauci.  

The lawsuit was filed after NIH responded to Judicial Watch’s September 9, 2021, FOIA request on October 6, 2021, by stating that it had recently processed a similar third-party FOIA request and asking if Judicial Watch would limit its request to mirror the third-party’s request. Judicial Watch denied this request.

Judicial Watch’s FOIA request asks for:

  • All emails sent to and from NIH Clinical Center/Department of Bioethics Director Christine Grady regarding vaccines for the prevention and/or treatment of SARS-CoV-2 and/or COVID-19.
  • All emails sent to and from Ms. Grady referencing the terms “Antibody Dependent Enhancement,” “ADE” (when used to represent Antibody Dependent Enhancement), “pathological priming,” “pre-priming,” “paradoxical immune enhancement,” and/or “disease enhancement.”
  • All emails sent between Ms. Grady and [National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease] Director Anthony Fauci.

“NIH has been hiding Ms. Grady’s emails for almost a year in violation of FOIA law. This is the very definition of a cover-up,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The unlawful cover-ups of Fauci family government records strongly suggest that there is something to hide.”

This is part of Judicial Watch’s ongoing investigation into the U.S. Government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the activity of Dr. Fauci and his wife, Christine Grady.

Last week, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit on behalf of American Transparency (OpenTheBooks.com) against the HHS for Grady’s employment and financial disclosure records.

An October 2021 lawsuit uncovered that over a 10-year period, Fauci and others at NIH received more link to than $350 million in secretive “royalty” payments from drug companies and other third parties.

Another Judicial Watch lawsuit also just uncovered that an infamous Fauci agency grant tied to the Chinese Wuhan Institute of Virology and gain of function research had been under FBI investigation.
