McSally, Gaetz Push To Ensure US Taxpayer Funding Of Wuhan Lab Stops

Published

A joint letter written by Senator Martha McSally, R-AZ, and Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, was sent to Congressional leaders Tuesday urging them to “ensure funding is cut off” to the Wuhan Virology Institute, which is currently being investigated for potentially being the source of the coronavirus.

“We were troubled by recent media reports that the National Institute of Health (NIH) has been funding secretive and dangerous laboratory research at the WIV for many years,” the two lawmakers wrote. “According to NIH’s website, the WIV is currently authorized by the NIH to receive taxpayer funding for animal research.”

Questions first began to surface after The Washington Post’s Josh Rogin wrote of State Department cables concerning the lab’s inadequate safety procedures and warning of a potential “SARS-like pandemic” stemming from bats, in January 2018, which U.S. Embassy officials in Beijing discovered two years before the coronavirus pandemic began. The lab is a biosafety level 4 facility, which means it conducts experiments on some of the world’s deadliest viruses such as Ebola.

Multiple sources later confirmed to Fox News that the virus likely came from the Wuhan lab and was used “as part of China’s attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States.” Days later, U.S. officials confirmed to the news site that a “full-scale investigation” into whether the virus leaked from the lab was underway.

The recent letter from Capitol Hill echoes the concerns of the intelligence community. Moreover, McSally and Gaetz are encouraging Congressional action in an attempt to further divest U.S. taxpayer dollars from the Chinese government and their nefarious operations.

They wrote, “We’re sure you agree that taxpayers’ money should not be sent to a dangerous Chinese state-run bio-agent laboratory that lacks meaningful oversight from U.S. authorities and is run by adversaries with a history of lab leaks, including SARS, and deception about the causes and extent of deadly disease outbreaks, including COVID-19. Although President Trump has stated that his administration ‘will end that grant quickly,’ we hope to ensure that WIV will not receive federal funds in any future spending package.”

Blood Money: New book shows how Bidens received $5M from Chinese criminal gang leader responsible for fentanyl pipeline to U.S.

Peter Schweizer detailed in his new book, Blood Money: Why the Powerful Turn a Blind Eye While China Kills Americans how Joe Biden is directly connected to the harrowing fentanyl crisis in the United States.

Breitbart.com reports on the revealing new book by Schweizer:

While Joe Biden was vice president, the Bidens developed a business partnership with a Chinese tycoon named Ye Jianming, the chairman of CEFC China Energy Co., which had strong ties to the Chinese Communist Party. Throughout Ye’s relationship with the Bidens, he “showered” some members of the Biden family with money, Schweizer reported. Hunter Biden received a three-carat diamond worth $80,000; and in July 2017, Ye’s company gave the Bidens a $5 million, interest-free, forgivable loan.

…But Ye also enjoyed a partnership with the former leader of a Chinese triad called the United Bamboo Gang (UBG), Schweizer detailed in Blood Money.  Ye’s partner’s name was Zhang Anle or, as he is commonly known, the “White Wolf.”

Ye’s business relationship blossomed with the “White Wolf,” Schweizer explains Blood Money. Schweizer writes that “White Wolf” became an important partner of the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico:

Ye and White Wolf set up the Shanghai Zhenrong Petroleum Company together. White Wolf’s gang, UBG, also has a “partnership” with Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel and helps them in the production and distribution of fentanyl in the United States. UBG helped to turn “the Sinaloa Cartel into the King of Fentanyl,” according to a Mexican investigation of the cartel.

White Wolf had been arrested and convicted in the 1980s on drug-trafficking and racketeering charges in the United States. The UBG is involved extensively in the international drug trade, having sold heroin in the United States for decades. As one government report stated, “It is believed the gang is active in several U.S. cities, including Chicago, Honolulu, Houston, Miami, Phoenix, and various California cities. The UBG has built up a sophisticated network capable of supplying members with guns, narcotics, and fraudulent identifications.” White Wolf also has close ties with the Beijing government; senior Communist Party officials call him “Big Brother.” The fact that a Chinese businessman who showered millions on the Bidens is partners with a crime syndicate partnering in the distribution of fentanyl into the United States might be shocking enough. But there is more.
