The federal Office of Special Counsel has concluded that it was a “close call” whether Anthony Fauci violated the federal Hatch Act which bars a federal employee from “us[ing] his official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election.”
The conclusion was that with all the circumstances considered, Fauci came down on the safe side of the law after he appeared to slam President Trump and praise Joe Biden in an interview about COVID just before the election.
A complaint had been filed by the group called Protect the Public’s Trust over Fauci’s statements in October 2020 to the Washington Post, which appeared just days before the election.
