Crucial Points on the Origins of COVID-19

Sam Husseini writes: “With the ‘intelligence community’ providing the results of its alleged ‘investigation’ as to the origins of the pandemic, reportedly ‘inconclusive’ -- it's important to keep some critical things, and some possibilities, in mind. Among them: 

"The US Congress can investigate without Chinese involvement. While many are calling for deeper inquiry (an overdue, good thing) they are doing so in a manner that places the burden purely on China. This is wrong for a number of reasons. Richard Ebright at Rutgers has stated: "Many threads of investigation are available in the US and would be accessible to a Congressional inquiry with subpoena power. At EcoHealth. At funding agencies (USAID, DTRA, DARPA, DHS, and NIH). At publishers (Springer-Nature and Lancet). No cooperation from China needed." See my piece on Peter Daszak's EcoHealth Alliance, which funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology's dangerous lab work and itself received over $100 million in USAID, Pentagon and NIH money… 

“While some House Republicans are apparently pushing for a Congressional inquiry, Pelosi is preventing it. Where is Schumer, Carolyn Maloney (chair of House Oversight) and Frank Pallone (chair of House Energy and Commerce) -- will they get behind a real investigation? An honest inquiry would almost certainly expose dangerous lab work by US institutions that could be seen as biowarfare -- akin to the Church Committee of the 1970s… It is possible that some of the Republicans are pushing for it in part because they know Pelosi will block it. Thus, both arms of the US establishment are served: Leverage against China and US government continuing dangerous lab work."
