Republicans in the United States House of Representatives asked their President, Nancy Pelosi, this Friday to set up a committee of inquiry to examine theories that the COVID-19 virus appeared in a laboratory in Wuham and could detain the Chinese Communist party responsible for the pandemic.
“We ask that you direct the chairs of the relevant democratic committees to immediately join Republican calls to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for its role in creating the global COVID-19 pandemic,” the signed letter said including the new President of the Republican Conference in the House of Commons, Elise Stefanik.
“There is mounting evidence that the pandemic started in a Chinese laboratory and that the Chinese Communist Party covered it up. If it does, the Chinese Communist Party is on the verge of killing nearly 600,000 Americans and millions more responsible all over the world. ” The Republicans dared.
The text also reads that House Democrats “to every American family who has lost someone” would commit an “affront” to the pandemic by not “allocating research resources to get answers to these questions”.
The letter, which was ratified by 209 Republican officials, contains the key signatures of minority leader Kevin McCarthy. the Vice President Steve Scalise; and Stefanik, who supported these theories back in March 2020 and was originally launched by former President Donald Trump.
The umpteenth Republican initiative in this regard comes days after United States President Joe Biden announced that the White House intelligence community does not have enough information to determine whether COVID-19 originated from or with comes from contact with an infected animal or from a laboratory accident.
Last week, The Wall Street Journal published a report using as its source a report from the US intelligence system during Donald Trump’s final days, saying that in November 2019, China hid the infection of three Wuhan workers at the institute . Beijing described the news as a “nonsensical lie”.
Earlier this year, the WHO expert group traveled to Wuhan to conduct an on-site investigation into the origin of the virus, which has already left 169 million positive cases and 3.5 million deaths. extremely unlikely to “ensure it came from a lab.”
