The origin of the Wuhan virus is a topic that's been debated for well over a year now. As Church Militant's David Nussman shows us, Republicans in Congress are laying out even more evidence that this was leaked from a lab in China.
A new congressional report says there's "ample evidence" the Wuhan Institute of Virology was modifying viruses to make them more infectious.
Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee released the report Monday morning.
Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX: "I think they were involved in a cover-up. It's the greatest cover-up in human history. I think the Chinese Communist Party are very concerned about this report."
The report illustrates China's lab was seeking major repairs to a waste treatment system — and an air safety system — just two years after the facilities began operating.
The fact that the lab needed repair lends credence to the idea of the virus escaping through a faulty system.
Republicans have long suspected the virus leaked from the lab in Wuhan.
Mike Pompeo: "Every piece of evidence points to a leak from this laboratory — it's all circumstantial to be sure."
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) insists the virus originated from a wet market in Wuhan — and has pumped this message out in state-run media.
Chinese media report: "The U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, says he has a significant amount of evidence that the coronavirus came from a lab in Wuhan. ... It's obvious now he lied to say that the virus came from a lab in Wuhan."
But critics say the CCP's lack of transparency means the world may never know for certain the true origins of COVID-19.
