According to a classified report sent to the White House and key members of Congress from the Department of Energy, the COVID-19 virus most likely originated from a lab leak in China. The head of the FBI, Christopher Wray, said his agency backed up the report. But not everyone is convinced. According to the Wall Street Journal, four other agencies, which officials declined to identify, along with a national intelligence panel, still believe the virus was transmitted from an infected animal to a human.
Straight Arrow News contributor Newt Gingrich believes there’s a lot of blame to go around for misinforming the public about what really happened and thinks there should be consequences for people like Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates.
The Department of Energy report that it’s almost certain that the COVID virus came out of a laboratory, had been manipulated by scientists and was in fact the Wuhan virus from China, confirms what the Federal Bureau of Investigation had already concluded —which was that, in fact, this was a man-made disaster caused by a Chinese laboratory.
Ironically, some of the funding for that laboratory came from us, the taxpayers. and it raises a series of interesting questions. First, did Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates and others methodically lie to the American people early on? Second, what’s the Chinese responsibility? The virus got released from China. The Chinese lied about it for months. It got to be much worse because of the way the Chinese handled it. Something like a million Americans died. If we were very tough about 9/11, and we were very tough about the Lockerbie bombing, and we were very tough about other activities, including the Iranian hostage crisis, should we be equally tough with China? And if so, how would that occur? Should we, for example, confiscate all bonds owned by the Chinese and turn them into a fund that Americans could apply to? Or should we create a special tariff and have all the money from the tariff go into a fund that Americans could apply to?
Furthermore, here at home, what’s the responsibility of someone like Bill Gates, who’s worth $104 billion? Should he, in fact, put a good bit of that to compensating all the people that he lied to? What’s the responsibility of Dr. Fauci or the Center for Disease Control? All of these institutions lied to the American people while Americans were dying. They all helped make it worse. And I think you’re gonna see this story grow and grow and grow. And I think it’s going to become one of the biggest stories of the next 10 years.
