The U.S. Energy Department reportedly assessed that the COVID-19 pandemic likely originated from an accidental lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China. Republicans are calling for accountability from the Chinese Communist Party as evidence mounts. “The American people deserve to see all the information concerning the Chinese lab leak and the origins of COVID. This won’t be forgotten,” Rep Ken Buck, R-Colo., tweeted. Dr Fauci is accused. „We’ve uncovered emails showing Dr. Fauci was warned that the virus looked man-made & came from a lab, but he may have acted to cover it up. Why? We need answers & accountability,” the Twitter account for Republicans on the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability wrote.
The FBI ranked its same conclusion in 2021 that the COVID-19 pandemic was the result of an accidental lab leak and maintains that view. Republicans rushed to call for urgent action against China on Sunday. White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Sunday that the intelligence community has not yet come up with a “definitive answer” on the question.
