The Biden Administration Quietly Shuts Down Investigation Regarding The Origin Of The Coronavirus Pandemic

The Biden Administration put an end to an investigation that was attempting to dig down to the origin of the COVID-19 Pandemic to find out if the coronavirus actually came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to Fox News.

“It is U.S. law to engage in effective arms control and nonproliferation, not facilitate it via ‘scientific cooperation’ in the name of threat reduction or refusal to engage in effective compliance with Communist countries that openly aim to incorporate synthetic biology into the future of warfare (apparently with our naive material and scientific assistance),” David Asher stated.

“We don’t know for certain what happened in Wuhan but we had every reason to investigate and ask questions.”

“As the State Department’s Jan. 15 statement said – and as additional disclosures and expert analyses of the last few months have underscored – there is probable cause for deep suspicion.”

“The coverup continues via refusal to allow WHO access, accept CDC offers to assist, and simply tell the truth of this pandemic’s endemic dangerous, incessant and pernicious injurious traits, which has caused huge injury to the American people and citizens of the world, Chinese citizens included.”

“Does anyone sane doubt that?”

“At the State Department in the last months of the last administration we didn’t draw or assert any conclusions, but we worked successfully to reveal certain facts and raise significant questions about the clear plausibility of a lab leak origin.”

“This was a global public service, and it is good that experts and journalists are increasingly turning their own attention to the issue, albeit belatedly.”

“Getting further information about this, getting it from honest researchers, honest investigators and press inquiries and getting it from the U.S. government is absolutely essential to finding out what happened in the origin of COVID, which is not only important for understanding what we’re still living through and for basic questions of responsibility, but most importantly, it’s absolutely essential to the future,” David Feith, a former State Department official said.

“Elevating this now as a political matter, as a diplomatic matter, is overdue but essential,” Feith stated.

“We’re hopeful that we can move into a more transparent, independent phase two investigation,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

“An international investigation led by the World Health Organization is something that we’ve actually been pressing for for several months in coordination with a range of partners around the world,” Psaki stated.

“We need that data. We need that information from the Chinese government. What we can’t do, and what I would caution anyone from doing is leaping ahead of an actual international process.”

“We don’t have enough data and information to jump to a conclusion at this point in time.”

“An international investigation led by the World Health Organization is something that we’ve actually been pressing for for several months in coordination with a range of partners around the world,” Psaki shade.

“We need that data. We need that information from the Chinese government. What we can’t do, and what I would caution anyone from doing is leaping ahead of an actual international process.”

“It would have been almost a dereliction of our duty if we didn’t study this, and the only way you can study these things is you’ve got to go where the action is,” Fauci stated.

“You don’t want to study bats in Fairfax County, Virginia, to find out what the animal-human interface is that might lead to a jumping of species.”

“So we had a modest collaboration with very respectable Chinese scientists who were world experts on coronavirus, and we did that through a sub-grant from a larger grant to EcoHealth.”

Fauci said, “The larger grant was about $600,000 over a period of five years. So it was a modest amount. The purpose of it was to study the animal-human interface, to do surveillance and to determine if these bat viruses were even capable of” infecting humans.”

“They were not approved by NIH for doing gain of function research,” Francis Collins, the director of NIH shared.

“We are of course not aware of other sources of funds or other activities they might have undertaken outside of what our approved grant allowed.”

From Fox News:

The Biden administration terminated the inquiry – which was being led out of the State Department’s arms control and verification bureau and initially launched at the request of former Trump Secretary of State Mike Pompeo – after being briefed on the team’s initial findings in February and March.

A State Department official told Fox News that Secretary of State Antony Blinken did not disband any cell looking into the origins of COVID-19, and that the department only employed a single contractor who was conducting research on several topics – including coronavirus. That contractor, according to the official, left the State Department before Blinken’s confirmation. The official said the inquiry was closed amid concerns about methodology.

The Biden administration’s investigation into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic is currently being led out of the White House National Security Council.

Fox News has learned that David Asher was the contractor leading the investigation. Asher has a history of investigative work tracking money for the AQ Khan network, North Korea’s nuclear program, and top Al Qaeda leaders, but has fallen under scrutiny from former State Department officials.

In a statement to Fox News, Asher defended the investigation, and said that, at the time, some State Department colleagues “were deliberately playing down possible links to China’s biological weapons program.”

Asher, who left the State Department at the end of the Trump administration, had been hired as a contractor, but had helped to put together the Jan. 15 memo released by Pompeo, using declassified intelligence. CNN first reported the shutdown of the probe.

That memo said the Wuhan Institute of Virology collaborated on “secret projects” with China’s military, and claims that “despite the WIV presenting itself as a civilian institution, the United States has determined that the WIV has collaborated on publications and secret projects within China’s military” since “at least 2017.”

Asher told Fox News that “certainly the Chinese Communist Party engaged in a huge coverup over the stealth ability of COVID to transmit human-to-human.”

Asher added that he doesn’t “know why the Biden team would doubt an effort to carry out a fair and accurate investigation into a subject that increasing numbers of leading scientists are now also calling to study.”

David Feith, a former State Department official during the Trump administration, was part of the small team working with Asher on the COVID origin investigation. Feith, this week, underscored the importance of learning how the coronavirus originated.

Feith, though, said there has been a “terrible failure for 15 months” on the part of the public and the U.S. government to recognize “the plausibility of the lab leak possibility.”

The Biden administration is calling for a transparent international investigation into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic, with the White House calling for China and the World Health Organization to provide data and information necessary for U.S. officials to draw conclusions.

The White House has criticized the WHO and China for its “phase one” report for its lack of transparency. That report dismissed claims that COVID-19 had escaped from the lab in Wuhan, and called the theory of zoonotic transmission, or transfer of infection from animals to humans, “likely to very likely.”

The report called the prospect that the virus transmitted from an animal reservoir to an animal host, followed by subsequent spread within that intermediate host that then transmits it to humans, “likely to very likely.” It also said the idea that the virus may have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology “extremely unlikely.”

The report called for further investigation in every area except the lab leak hypothesis.

  1. What your saying is completely genuine. I know that everyone should say the exact same issue, but I just think that you place it in a way that absolutely everyone can recognize. I also really like the photos you set in right here. They in shape so nicely with what youre attempting to say. Im sure youll achieve so many folks with what youve obtained to say.
