As America emerges from the pandemic, politicians and lawmakers have plenty of questions. Maybe the biggest question that remains is, “where did this come from and how did it get here?”
At first, Democrat leaders ridiculed the idea that it originated in a Chinese laboratory, saying such claims were fueled by “racism” and xenophobia.
But things have changed recently, and now 200 House Republicans demand answers.
Led by House Republican Whip Steve Scalise, this large group of GOP members requests a full investigation into the origins of the 2020 crisis.
They want to learn the truth once and for all.
And they don’t want to spare any expense — they’re demanding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi use congressional investigatory resources to get this done.
Republicans need to know if the coronavirus came from a lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. They also want to know if the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “covered it up.”
And the only way that’s going to happen is if we take a deep dive into the evidence.
In a letter Scalise sent to Pelosi, he made his request plain (courtesy Fox News):
We request that you instruct the appropriate Democrat committee chairs to immediately join Republican calls to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for its role in causing the global COVID-19 pandemic…
If that’s the case, the CCP is responsible for the deaths of almost 600,000 Americans and millions more worldwide.
These questions about the CCP’s liability are not a diversion, as you falsely claimed.
The letter further cites “mounting evidence” that China did everything they could to hide the truth from the world.
Perhaps even worse, Republicans accuse Democrats of constantly refusing to use resources to get answers. And “every American family that lost someone deserves answers about the origin of this terrible virus.”
But this isn’t the first time the GOP has called for an investigation.
In fact, Scalise claims they’ve “repeatedly” asked for probes into China, but their pleas were always “ignored:”
After more than a year of inaction in light of mounting evidence against the CCP, it raises serious questions as to why House Democrats continue to cover for the CCP’s lies and obfuscation.
The good news is that the Biden administration might be coming around to this way of thinking.
Just this week, President Biden released a statement that said U.S. intelligence has zeroed in on “two likely scenarios” for the origin of the virus. And they want “additional follow-up.”
This being the case, we might get those answers we’ve been seeking for over a year.
Let’s just hope Pelosi agrees to the request because right now, the questions aren’t political. Everyone simply wants to know what happened; where the virus came from, why, and how.
And everyone deserves the truth, plain and simple.
- 200 House Republicans sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, demanding a full investigation into the origins of the 2020 crisis.
- They want to know if the virus leaked from a lab in Wuhan, and if the CCP worked to cover it up.
- The Biden administration appears to be considering the Republican argument, and says they’re requesting “additional follow-up” from U.S. intelligence.
