GOP Sen. Johnson requests Defense Department investigation into COVID-19 origins

RAV: GOP Sen. Ron Johnson has requested information about a Defense Department investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 virus.

The request follows the recent publishing of a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) report.

The Marine who reportedly wrote the report describes a proposal to use controversial gain-of-function techniques to study bat coronaviruses. The proposal, according to the report, was rejected by DARPA and subsequently picked up by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, which funded the research via a sub-grant to the EcoHealth Alliance. 

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of NIAID, has repeatedly claimed that his agency did not fund gain-of-function research into bat coronaviruses, though the agency did provide EcoHealth Alliance grants to conduct research in Wuhan, China, were the virus was first detected.

“It is apparent that Dr. Fauci has not been forthright with the American people regarding his involvement in funding dangerous research,” Johnson, of Wisconsin, recently told the Daily Caller. read more

  1. It would be a lot safer if when they Finally Say WHUHAN LAB, someone else was President.

    Joe would just keep re-drawing lines in the sand like Barky did with Syria/ISIS/ISIL.

    Heck, even Killary would Go Baldwin.
    She’s done it already.

    (I just mini-barfed in my mouth at the thought)

  2. Little napoleanfaucci the genocide king.

    How the hell is he entitled to a retirement if 350k?

  3. I know these guys have a lot on their plate [snark] but right now my biggest concern is saving this so-called republic of ours is to rein in the out of control Jan 6 commission.

    Not only are they triaging the biggest lie since, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan”, but they got subpoenas out for Trump, Pence, and Kayleigh McEnany, with more to come. Executive privilege means nothing now, and with a constant cavalcade of subpoenas with the requisite contempt of congress citations, they are keeping this lie fresh in the news so that the low information voter can be swayed into thinking this is a real thing.
