“It is unclear if the Intelligence Community or any other part of the U.S. government is seeking to determine the truth”

GOP representatives on the House Intelligence Committee have demanded an update from the White House and the Director of National Intelligence on the possibility that the coronavirus leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China.
In a letter, the Republicans say that despite submitting evidence to back up the theory, they have not received further information from the investigation, nor have they been provided with adequate explanation as to what led to “seemingly authoritative statements early in the pandemic about the origins of the virus.”
“This casts doubt on the validity of early judgments as well as the analytic integrity of COVID-19-related intelligence reporting,” the letter states, further demanding that all information on the possibility of a Chinese cover up be disclosed.
It continues “Republican Members are aware of allegations that the IC suppressed dissenting views related to the origins of the pandemic and that the community relied upon ‘outside’ experts with concerning yet undisclosed entanglements.
The Republicans, led by Ranking Member Devin Nunes also want access to any intelligence on the “gain of function” research that was undertaken at the Wuhan lab in conjunction with US agencies.
“I want to call to your attention the fact that U.S. government funds — whether directly or indirectly — are supporting dangerous dual-use scientific research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Our findings, though incomplete, suggest the United States supported such work despite clear evidence of the People’s Liberation Army’s involvement at the WIV,” the letter states.
“It is unclear, however, if the Intelligence Community or any other part of the U.S. government is seeking to determine the truth,” the letter to Biden also notes.
As Infowars reported in April 2020, the NIH awarded a $3.7 million grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to conduct coronavirus gain of function research.
