Senator Cotton: China Refusing to Hand Over Evidence About Wuhan BioLab

New report says lab was likely source of coronavirus outbreak.

Senator Tom Cotton says that China is refusing to hand over evidence concerning the bio-safety level 4 research lab in Wuhan despite a new report from biological scientists at the South China University of Technology saying it may have been the source of the coronavirus outbreak.

During an appearance on Fox News, Cotton told Maria Bartiromo that new evidence confirmed the source of the virus was not the meat market in Wuhan.

“Here is what we do know. This virus did not originate in the Wuhan animal market,” said Cotton. “Epidemiologists who are widely respected from China published a study in the international journal Lancet have demonstrated that several of the original cases did NOT have any contact with that food market. The virus went into that food market before it came out of that food market. So we don’t know where it originated… We also know that only a few miles away from that market is China’s only bio-safety Level Four Super Laboratory that researches human infectious diseases.”

Cotton said that China’s “duplicity and dishonesty” meant that questions needed to be asked about the lab but that “China right now is not giving any evidence on that question at all” and Beijing was being “very secretive” on what happens at the lab.

Cotton also accused China of consistently blocking American scientists from traveling to Wuhan to assist in discovering the origins of the virus.

A new report by scientists at the South China University of Technology in Guangzhou, China concludes that “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.”

One of the laboratories named in the report which was conducting research on bat coronavirus was located just 280 meters from the site of the Wuhan meat market.

For weeks, the media has demonized anyone who suggested the lab could have been responsible for the coronavirus outbreak as a dangerous conspiracy theorist peddling fake news.

However, now that CNN/NY Times journalist Ezra Cheung tweeted precisely that yesterday, one wonders whether they will begin to change their tune.

Rep. Devin Nunes: Remove All Obama Holdovers from NSC — Move NSC Out of White House and Across the Potomac River (VIDEO)

 

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures yesterday morning.

Rep. Nunes ripped the liberal media after their disastrous three years of lying and misleading the American public.

The leftie mainstream media TRULY is an enemy to Truth.

Rep. Nunes also urged President Trump to move the entire NSC apparatus out of the White House and across the Potomac River.

Rep. Nunes: I believe we’re going to get accountability. I believe Durham is going to get to the full story… I’ve been saying for a long time that the National Security Council that’s there at the White House, 400 and some people, he would be best to take all of those people, ship them across the Potomac, quarantine them, get them the hell away from the White House, because we know that a lot of the leaks for the last three plus years have been coming from that National Security Council. The President really only needs to have Trump appointees with him in the White House.

Via Sunday Morning Futures:

On Monday morning Devin Nunes expanded on his request — The California Republican called on President Trump to FIRE all Obama holdovers in the NSC and in the White House.

Rep. Nunes: We know that it is highly likely that many of the leaks that started at the very beginning of President Trump’s administration came from the National Security Council.
