As questions mount, even in the mainstream media, Members of the Republican House are calling for a full Congressional investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 virus.
A letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) signed by over 200 House GOP members including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R -LA) and GOP conference chair Elise Stephanik (R-NY) insists on an investigation into the origins of the virus.
The letter from the GOP lawmakers read in part, “We ask that you instruct the appropriate chairmen of the Democratic Committee to immediately join calls by the Republicans, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for their role in starting the global COVID-19 pandemic to be held accountable worldwide. “
The letter continued, “There is increasing evidence that the pandemic started in a Chinese laboratory and the CCP has been covering it up. If so, the CCP is responsible for the deaths of nearly 600,000 Americans and millions more worldwide. “
The Biden administration now claims it conducted a 90-day review of the origins of COVID, but they were waiting to announce it today. That’s one day after a story emerged that the Biden administration shut down a State Department investigation into the origins of COVID.
It’s not even a good lie.

Intelligence reports could be devastating
On May 19, a Fox News report said Republicans at House Intelligence claimed there was “substantial evidence” that the virus came from the now infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology in a laboratory leak scenario.

US intelligence agencies also reportedly said there was a large amount of “untested evidence” related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Wednesday, President Biden ordered a 90-day intelligence investigation. Biden also said he would publish all results.
🚨🚨 209 Republicans sent a letter to Pelosi asking them to allow tests in the Wuhan laboratory.
Dems have not held a hearing on this.
Big Tech censored posts about it.
The media attacked people who were talking about it.

Media now give belief to the story that was once a “conservative conspiracy theory”
At the beginning of the outbreak, the media were all too happy to brand Trump’s claims that the virus came from a laboratory as “conspiracy theory.” According to the prevailing narrative, the virus started in a wet market and spread from bats to humans. End of the story.
Social media was also only too happy to help. Facebook announced in February that it would restrict posts claiming that the virus could be made, or made, by human hands in some way. Although Facebook recently announced that it would no longer ban such posts.
As the pandemic spread worldwide in April and May 2020, former President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were some of the first to claim the virus was the product of a leak from the Wuhan laboratory.
But as the evidence seems to be mounting, even Dr. Anthony Fauci that it is “possible” that a laboratory leak was the source of the virus.
The laboratory leak theory is gaining new support for a variety of reasons.
In a report by The Hill, three lab workers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology fell ill and were hospitalized as early as November 2019 with symptoms similar to COVID-19.
The Hill report asks a very valid question. Has the media tried to downplay any doubts that have been expressed about the origins of the virus?
The answer may be as simple as this: as President, did Donald Trump have more access to information about this virus than the media?
If the Wuhan Laboratory’s Leak Theory holds true, mainstream media and social media censorship helped facilitate one of the greatest cover-ups in modern history.
All in the name of “eliminating misinformation”.
Why should they be trusted to ever referee the truth again?

Democrats at a second glance
Democrats in both the House and Senate, who originally rejected the theory of a possible laboratory leak as a GOP talking point, are now starting to take a second look.
This rare display of non-partisanship could turn Congress Democrats against Biden government officials who have stated that all investigations should be directed by the WHO or similar agency. But even the WHO said in March that China was not ready to publish laboratory records and data.
It is not yet clear exactly how such a bipartisan investigation would work, but on the surface it seems that both sides of the aisle want some transparency.
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) said, “It is the Chinese Communist Party that was not transparent and allowed for deeper understanding. They disrupted the World Health Organization’s investigation. They weren’t transparent from the start. “
Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) stated: “As we analyze what went wrong and what we can do in the future, we also need to have answers to these questions. And I think you will see that Congress is bringing up some of these matters as well. We have to get to the bottom of this. “
It looks like China is getting a great return on its investment in the Bidens. People better start watching what’s going on !!!
The Biden team has stopped investigating a possible link between laboratory leak theory and China. https://t.co/iSBiceGUmd
