House GOP Report Ties COVID Origins To China’s Bioweapons Program

(NRCC News) – Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee are now alleging as part of a brand new report that there are “indications” that the COVID-19 virus that raged across the world could have potential ties to a biological weapons research program in China that “spilled over” to the general human population during some kind of incident that took place at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Well, that’s pretty terrifying, don’t you think? This has some serious earth shattering implications.

The information was released as part of a minority staff report by members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Wednesday evening.

“Contrary to the implication of the [Intelligence Community’s] declassified report, based on our investigation involving a variety of public and non-public information, we conclude that there are indications that SARS-CoV-2 may have been tied to China’s biological weapons research program and spilled over to the human population during a lab-related incident at the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” a summary of the report goes on to reveal. “The IC failed to adequately address this information in its classified Updated Assessment. When we attempted to raise the issues with the IC, it failed to respond.”

According to Fox News, “In a declassified assessment on the origins of COVID-19 by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence in October 2021, the report states that SARS-CoV-2 was ‘probably not a biological weapon,’ adding, ‘We remain skeptical of allegations that SARS-CoV-2 was a biological weapon because they are supported by scientifically invalid claims.'”

“Wednesday’s report released by House Republicans also alleges that its investigation ‘revealed serious shortcomings with both the classified and declassified versions of the Intelligence Community’s, and states that the omissions ‘likely skewed the public’s understanding of key issues and deepened mistrust,'” Adam Sabes wrote for the outlet.

Rep. Brad Wenstrup, an Ohio Republican, spoke with Fox News Digital where he said that Americans deserve to have answers concerning the origins of the coronavirus.

“The American people are owed answers about the origins of COVID-19. Our report states that COVID-19 may have been tied to China’s bioweapons research program and that the Intelligence Community (IC) withheld key information from the American public’s authorized elected officials, deepening public mistrust,” Wenstrup remarked. “Our findings also show that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) bears more responsibility for the COVID-19 pandemic than what has been publicly known or transparently communicated to the American people.”

“As a physician and Army veteran, I believe it is vitally important that we understand the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and strive to do everything within our power to pursue policies that will help prevent our country from being vulnerable like this in the future,” he added.

One important thing to point out in the report is that while it says COVID is probably tied to China’s biological weapons research program, “We have not seen any credible indication that the virus was intentionally, rather than accidentally, released.”

Well, I won’t claim to speak on behalf of every American, but regardless of whether or not the virus was released intentionally, the fact a communist country is conducting research involving biological weapons should be raising alarm bells. China was scary enough before this, but now, this is a whole other level of insanity.

“Nor do we claim the information we have found is a smoking gun that definitively resolves the question of the origins of COVID-19 beyond all doubt. However, the information is important to furthering the public’s understanding, and we will seek to declassify the classified version of our report in the next Congress to further the conversation,” the report goes on to say.
