Representative Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio, says that he and House Republicans will launch an investigation into the Covid-19 pandemic when the new Congress convenes in January.
They plan to demand testimony from several of the Biden administration officials and other “experts” on the origins of the virus in China and the funding of the lab in Wuhan.
Dr. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the top medical advisor to the president, has categorically
denied any wrongdoing.
Congressman Jordan said that “The American people deserve the facts and the truth about the origins of COVID-19.
He continued, “COVID-19 disrupted our lives and livelihoods for over two years: kids couldn’t go to school, small businesses and churches were closed, our economy tanked, and our freedoms were restricted.
“If we had known the truth about the virus’s origins, we could have combatted the virus in a more meaningful way at the outset of the pandemic.
“It is our Constitutional duty to conduct oversight and thoroughly examine the facts so this type of gain-of-function research and bad behavior never happens again.”
James Comer (R-Ky.) said:
“Discovering the origin of COVID-19 is vital to providing accountability and protecting Americans in the future. Mounting evidence points to the virus originating from a leak at the Wuhan lab.
“EcoHealth Alliance, a U.S. National Institutes of Health grantee, passed taxpayer funds to the Wuhan lab to conduct gain of function research on bat coronaviruses – research that may have started the pandemic. Dr. Fauci was warned early on that the virus appeared man-made and pointed to a lab leak and instead of blowing the whistle may have attempted to cover it up.
“The American people deserve answers and accountability.
“We will continue to follow the facts to determine what, if anything, could have been done differently to guard against the harms Americans have endured during the pandemic.
“We will continue this oversight to hold U.S. government officials accountable for any wrongdoing and ensure Americans’ tax dollars aren’t being used on risky research at unsecure labs.”
Republicans on the House Oversight Committee made a statement in regard to Covid and its origins.
They claim to have uncovered “three key facts.” One is that there is “growing evidence” to back up the claim that Covid-19 came from the Wuhan Lab and that the Chinese Communist Party covered it up.
The tax dollars of hard-working Americans “were being funneled to the lab” for “risky experimental research on novel bat coronaviruses.”
And the big one, St. Fauci knew this all along. They speculate that he may have tried to conceal this information by “intentionally downplaying the lab leak theory.”
As ranking members of the House Oversight Committee, Jordan and Comer are requesting all pertinent information including documents and communications related to the origin of Covid.
The virus protocols ruined people’s lives, killed millions of people, allowed people to die alone, set children back years in their education, and divided friends and families. Americans deserve answers.
