GOP senators demand answers on whether Biden halted COVID-19 origin probe

In response to rumors that President Joe Biden quietly halted a government investigation into the possible origins of COVID-19, Republican Sens. Ron Johnson (WI) and Rick Scott (FL) have sent a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken demanding answers, as the Daily Caller reports.

The outlet obtained the communication in which Blinken is asked a series of questions and is requested to provide documents, names, and other information in connection to a State Department probe of how SARS-CoV-2 originated.

In their letter, the senators requested details related to reports that Biden and his team “shut down” an investigation into the emergence of COVID-19, including an examination of the notion that the virus may have gotten its start in a Wuhan, China laboratory. The reporting referenced by the lawmakers indicated that the defunct probe was the only one taking a serious look at the lab leak theory.

As a result, the senators are seeking details of why the State Department’s probe was stopped and who within the agency supported its termination. They are also seeking draft reports produced during the probe, additional documentation related to the decision making process affecting the continuation of the investigation, the details of any other investigations into COVID-19’s origins that may be taking place, as well as all State Department cables discussing the Wuhan Institute of Virology dating back to 2018.

Johnson emphasized to the Daily Caller that “The world needs to know the origin of the coronavirus. It is critical that this administration does its party by being transparent…All I’m asking for is the truth.”

Scott underscored the conflicting information Americans have received throughout the course of the pandemic about what may have set the cataclysmic chain of events into motion, remarking, “For nearly a year, the press and Washington Democrats said it was crazy to suggest that COVID-19 may have leaked from a lab. It’s about time President Biden acknowledges that the American people deserve answers,” adding, “Communist China is responsible for this pandemic. We must hold them accountable.”

For his part, Biden indicated this week that he had ordered the launch of a 90-day investigation into the lab leak hypothesis, as the New York Post reported, and that he anticipates a public release of those findings, once complete. He also implored the U.S. intelligence community to “redouble their efforts” in determining the true origins of the virus.

Adding urgency to the push for answers, on Wednesday the Senate unanimously passed a bill requiring declassification by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence of “any and all information relating to the potential links between the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the origin of the coronavirus disease,” as The Hill reported.

Echoing the sentiments of millions, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) – a key proponent of the measure – declared, “The American people deserve to know about the origins of the COVID-19. They deserve to know how this terrible pandemic that has ravaged the globe and our country, how it got started and what’s China’s role in starting it.”

  1. COVID 19 is fauci’s child. He was working on Gain of Function experiments with it during the obama administration. Obama did not want the optics of it so he directed him to stop. Instead he took it off shore to Wuhan China where he continued to fund it with tax dollars via NIH and funds from Gates and Soros. This is a plan that has been in the hopper for decades. He is not only the author of it but holds a patent on it. He also holds patents on the so called “vaccines”. He is the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing. He not only should be fired he should be prosecuted for what he has unleashed on not only the USA but the world. He is a criminal.

    Don’t take my word for it. Do your own research. The patents predate the whole issue we are dealing with. He is a monster driven by hate and greed.

  2. We ALL know China is responsible for the epidemic…The President and his cronies…ALL…know it!! So is ANYTHING going to be done about it?? Like everything else, it will get “swept under the rug!!” If it had been Pres. Trump…they would have him mutilated! So there!!

  3. I agree 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 %

  4. In 2017 Dr. Fauci stated on national tv that President Trump was going to go through a pandemic like no one has ever seen before. That statement begs the question of “why would Fauci make such a prediction prior toTrump’s presidency. The only conclusion that can be drawn from this is that the pandemic was orchestrated and that Fauci was directly involved. This is exactly why Biden has stopped thee investigation of the Wuhan Lab. Because to allow this investigation will reveal that Fauci was involved and being paid by the Chinese and American government’s.

  5. I whole heartedly agree with you that we the people have a right to know where this devastating pandemic started! I also believe that we need to know about anyone who tries to hide the truth about this whole mess! Not only where it started but also “WHO” tries to hide the truth about it, tries to hide their involvement in any of this!!

    1. He is going to keep destroying America you can count on it. I just hope there is enough left by 2024 to restart our growth again after 4 years of this incompetent screwball.

      1. Biden belongs in a nursing home not the White House. He can’t say a complete sentence without making a mistake or two.
