Energy Department: COVID-19 most likely emerged from lab leak

In an exclusive report, the Wall Street Journal has cited a classified intelligence report provided to the White House and members of Congress with bombshell, albeit unsurprising, information regarding the origins as COVID-19.

What the left and liberal media once lambasted as conservative propaganda or irresponsible suggestions by former President Trump, is indeed, factually true. The Energy Department has now concluded the COVID-19 pandemic likely began after an unintentional laboratory leak in China, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Last week, the Health and Human Services (HHS) Department released 900 pages of records to the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic origin, according to an HHS official.

The Republican-led panel, headed by chairman Representative Brad Wenstrup from Ohio, requested “records from the agency, including from National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins, former White House COVID adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Beccera” reports CBS News.

CBS News reports:

The panel, which was previously controlled by Democrats, said it is probing whether COVID-19 originated from a lab in Wuhan, China and the Chinese Communist Party covered it up, as well as whether U.S. taxpayer dollars were being sent to the lab. 

The committee requested phone records, calendars and dozens of sets of internal records from top federal health officials. Though HHS did not specify what records it shared with the panel Tuesday evening, an agency spokesperson told CBS News, “The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is committed to working in good faith to address the Select Subcommittee’s oversight requests.”

China has responded defensively, stating Monday that studies into the origins of COVID-19 “should not be politicized” after a new assessment led to fresh scrutiny into a possible laboratory accident in late 2019 in the central Chinese city of Wuhan.

Mao Ning, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, pointed to the March 2021 findings of a joint WHO-China report that called the lab leak theory “extremely unlikely.” That verdict was “a science-based, authoritative conclusion,” she said at a regular press briefing in Beijing.

“Certain parties should stop rehashing the ‘lab leak’ narrative, stop smearing China and stop politicizing origin tracing,” Mao said after The Wall Street Journal and The New York Timesreported that the United States Department of Energy concluded, with “low confidence,” that SARS-CoV-2 had emerged as a result of a lab mishap.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol data Border Patrol agents detained over 30,000 Chinese individuals for illegally crossing the border from January to November 2023, sparking concern.

Just The News reports that National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd on Wednesday said the United States should be incredibly concerned by the influx of military-aged Chinese men coming across the southern border.

“Why are we seeing this influx?” Judd asked on the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “At best, they’re just coming here for a better life or for a better job. At worse, they’re coming here to be part of the Chinese government, and that’s what scares me an awful lot.”

“We know that the Chinese have huge gangs here in the United States, and they control certain parts of our country,” he later said. “They control the drug flow. They control the prostitution. They control everything that’s illegal in certain portions of the country. We have to look into that. It’s very important that we understand why we are having so many people from China, especially military-aged men, from China.”

“I don’t want to cause mass hysteria where United States citizens are violent towards people from China,” Judd said. “However, we have to … allow the intelligence community to do their job. We’ve got to let law enforcement do their job and look into these individuals.”

Many Chinese immigrants are leaving due to economic conditions in China and its strict lockdowns, Yahoo News reported.

“Again, at best, they’re here for a better life,” Judd said. “At worst, they’re here to be part of the Chinese government to infiltrate our own country.”
