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.

With a little help from their Democrat friends, a Chinese electric vehicle (EV) battery company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party just announced the opening of its second plant in the United States.

Fox News reports Gotion Inc., whose parent company Gotion High-Tech is based in Hefei, China, unveiled plans to build a $2 billion lithium battery plant in Manteno, Illinois, alongside Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who cheered the project.

The announcement comes amid growing opposition to the company’s plans to build a billion-dollar factory in Mecosta County, Michigan.

In order to make the expansion happen, lobbyists for the Chinese Communist Party-tied electric vehicle company funneled cash to Democrats. “Individuals at a law firm registered as foreign agents to lobby on behalf of Gotion, a Chinese electric vehicle battery company developing a controversial project in Michigan, and wired campaign contributions to several top Democrats” reports Fox News.

“According to state and federal filings, Monique Field-Foster, an attorney at the Lansing office of the Warner Norcross + Judd law firm who is acting as a foreign agent on behalf of Gotion, donated to the campaigns of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Whitmer’s sister Liz Gereghty and Michigan Democratic Senate hopeful Rep. Elissa Slotkin” the Fox News report continued.

“In partnership with the business community and the General Assembly, two years ago we set out to make Illinois a destination for electric vehicle and clean energy companies from across the globe,” Pritzker said in a statement.

“With the right incentives, nation-leading infrastructure, world-class workforce and booming clean energy production, we have transformed ourselves into an attractive location for global manufacturers. Today, we take another leap forward. It’s my pleasure to welcome Gotion to Illinois and to show the world yet again that Illinois is ready to be a player on the world stage.”

Pritzker delivered remarks late last week thanking Gotion for choosing Illinois to call “home” in a ceremony with leaders from Gotion High-Tech, including Li Zhen, the company’s chairman and president, who said he expected the factory to open in less than 12 months.

“All that we see here [in Illinois] are of enormous value to us: an enabling business environment, a supportive state government for the new energy industry and their highly efficient work, as well as the prospects of the State of Illinois in the coming years,” the Gotion president added. “We believe that Gotion’s battery technology will help to boost e-mobility in North America and the economic and trade exchanges between China and the U.S.”
