Donald Trump and officials in his administration were some of the first to suggest that COVID-19 originated from a lab.
But the media quickly silenced any talk of the lab leak theory.
Now this former Trump official just dropped a bombshell about the COVID lab leak theory.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, mainstream media elites have been pushing the narrative that COVID-19 came from a “wet market” in Wuhan.
They were all too happy to absolve the Chinese Communist Party of any wrongdoing.
And they vilified President Trump for suggesting otherwise – so much so that scientists have even admitted they didn’t want to give credence to the lab leak theory for fear of being associated with Trump.
This happened all while it was common knowledge that the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is located a stone’s throw away from the “wet market,” routinely manipulated bat coronaviruses and conducted secret experiments for the Chinese military.
And one former Trump official is setting the record straight.
Brett Giroir, a former four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps and former member of Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force, made it clear that the theory that COVID escaped from a lab was the most likely case.
“I assess that the most likely origin was an accidental infection of laboratory personnel from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, with secondary transmission to the local population and subsequent spread to hundreds of millions of people around the world,” Giroir said to House Republicans.
“There is now an increasing body of circumstantial evidence pointing to a lab leak origin of the virus,” Giroir said. “The bottom line is: I believe it’s just too much of a coincidence that a worldwide pandemic caused by a novel bat coronavirus that cannot be found in nature started just a few miles away from a secretive laboratory doing potentially dangerous research on bat coronaviruses. Sometimes, the most obvious explanation is indeed the correct one.”
Of course, the media will never be brought to justice for their slander, libel, and lies so long as radical leftist Joe Biden is in office.
