More than 200 House Republicans demand that Pelosi FINALLY investigate China’s complicity in a pandemic
House Republican Whip Steve Scalise and more than 200 of his GOP colleagues have called on Nancy Pelosi to lead her Democratic-led committees to investigate China’s complicity in causing the COVID pandemic.
In a letter to the Democratic House chairman, Republicans said there is “growing evidence that the pandemic started in a Chinese laboratory” and that the Chinese Communist Party “covered it up.”
If so, the CCP is responsible for the deaths of nearly 600,000 Americans and millions more worldwide. These questions about the CCP’s liability are not a distraction, as you falsely claimed, ”the letter reads.
On the contrary, every American family that has lost someone deserves answers about the origins of this terrible virus, and the House Democrats’ continued refusal to allocate investigative resources to get those answers is an insult to them.
House Republicans repeatedly called for a full investigation to address the CCP’s complicity in covering up the origins of COVID-19. Repeatedly our requests were ignored. Instead, House Democrats pursued a radical left-wing agenda pushing the economy towards its highest inflation rates since 1979. ‘
Republicans raised their demands for an investigation because members of the House would introduce two new COVID-related bills, one that would allow the victims’ families to sue China and another that would set up a 9/11 style committee to investigate the origins of the to investigate the matter. the pandemic.
It follows that President Biden’s call for US intelligence to report within 90 days on the origin of the virus was fueled by claims that they have a slew of “unexamined evidence.”

This evidence requires additional computer analysis and could lead to more information about the lab leak theory, the lab workers infected before the pandemic spread around the world, and how COVID spread in Wuhan, The New York Times reported.
Fox News reported Friday that Democratic Rep. Conor Lamb and Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, both from Pennsylvania, will release the Never Again International Outbreak Prevention Act, which will quash China’s sovereign immunity from lawsuits.
The bill also targets other countries “that deliberately misled the international community in the outbreak.”
A second bill, the Made in America Emergency Preparedness Act, had also been tabled by Fitzpatrick at the last congress.
Chinese virologist Shi Zhengli (left) is seen in the laboratory in Wuhan, China. The White House said on Wednesday that US intelligence services are divided over their beliefs about the origin of COVID-19, with some officials believing it to have escaped from a laboratory.
He will be joined by four additional Republicans and five Democrats for the version presented in this Congress.
The bill would form a 9/11 style bipartisan committee that would look at the origins of COVID-19 and the US response, Fox said.
It would be responsible for making recommendations to the White House and Congress as to which supplies should be US-made to combat a future physical or medical national disaster.
A shortage of personal protective equipment at the start of the pandemic last year adversely affected the ability of medical workers to safely care for infected Americans.
“In response to this current crisis, we should never again be caught off guard, unable to protect our communities,” said a press release announcing the bill. “We should never again see nearly 600,000 American lives lost at risk and everyday life turned upside down.”
Fitzpatrick sent out a strongly worded statement on Monday – even before the White House shared information about bachelor, saying the U.S. intelligence community could not come to an agreement on the origin of the virus – urging “ we need answers now. ”
The intelligence community is divided as to whether COVID-19 originated naturally, traveled from animal to human, or escaped from a Wuhan lab.
There are strong reasons to believe that false reporting and cover-ups about the true origin of the coronavirus have taken place. We deserve answers. Whether it’s hell or high tide, I won’t stop until we get them, ”said the Pennsylvania Republican.
