The exchange between Fauci and Marshall was as follows (quoted from a Reuters message):

Senator Roger Marshall: Doctor Fauci, according to Forbes in 2020 you earned $ 434,000. You control $ 5 billion in grants. As the highest-paid employee of the entire federal government, are you willing to provide Congress with your financial statements?
Dr. Antony Fauci: Do not understand the question. My financial statements for the last 37 or 35 years are publicly available.
Marshall: Big corporations are doing their best to hide them. We will continue to look for them.
Fauci: Just ask for them, it’s amazing someone must have misled you.
Marshall: My office can’t find them. Where are they if they are available to the public?
Fauci: They’re available if you like.
Marshall: I can’t wait to see them.
When the discussion was over, the doctor, convinced that his microphone was off, said to himself:
“Jesus, what a retard”
