Republicans issued a 301-page Senate report concluding that the COVID virus leaked accidentally from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China and that there could actually have been two leaks from separate facilities due to “failures of biosafety containment during vaccine-related research.”

Axios obtained the report titled “Muddy Waters: The Origin of COVID-19” which highlights the fact that there are no known naturally-occurring incidents of COVID-19 despite massive claims from the left to the contrary.
The report was released by Sen. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) who raised the prospect that millions of lives could have been saved, including more than 1 million Americans, if not for a “coverup” by the Chinese government during a theorized initial outbreak.
“This report concludes most likely this was two leaks [including] a lab leak in the September-October  timeframe, even as early as July or August,” Marshall told a small group of journalists ahead of the release of the document, according to the New York Post.
“The preponderance of information affirms the plausibility of a research-related incident that was likely unintentional resulting from failures of biosafety containment during vaccine-related research,” the report contends while also noting Chinese military involvement.
My new bombshell report has evidence that supports:
❌ There were most likely not one but TWO leaks of the virus dating back to 2019.
❌ The CCP was responding to the coronavirus months before the rest of the world knew it existed.

“It is clear that the convergence of sophisticated coronavirus research, government demands for scientific breakthroughs, and biosafety problems at the WIV appears to have peaked in the late-summer or early-fall 2019,” the Senate investigators stated. “From June to August 2019, WIV leadership published multiple reports expressing concerns about biosafety shortcomings due to limited availability of equipment and trained personnel. Multiple PRC government medical and public health entities in Wuhan began procuring pathogen detection instruments and conducting infectious disease outbreak exercises and drills.”
The authors of the report noted that the evidence is “circumstantial.” Despite that fact, there is just so much of it that the leaks are almost assuredly what took place. Investigators claimed that they were hampered by a lack of cooperation from China. They are absolutely confident that the virus escaped from the Wuhan lab.
Chinese researchers began developing at least two COVID vaccines in November 2019. That was a month before the first cases appeared in China according to the report. The first US case surfaced on January 20, 2020.
The revelation of the Chinese vaccines “means SARS-CoV-2 would have been present at the WIV (Wuhan Institute of Virology) before the known outbreak of the pandemic,” the authors logically conclude.
A new Senate report from @RogerMarshallMD concludes that #COVID19 may have leaked from TWO Chinese labs.
Why’d Fauci continue to support your tax dollars going to labs like these?

Despite being sure of their conclusions, the authors point out that it is highly probable that we will never know for sure exactly where COVID originated. The claim by the Chinese that the virus passed naturally from animals to humans, however, is not plausible.
The report was championed by Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) who retired in January. It was authored by Robert Kadlec, who is a former HHS assistant secretary for preparedness and response during the Trump administration.
Kadlec is a physician and a retired Air Force colonel. He asserted that China was motivated to explore the COVID-19 virus after their country was battered by SARS from 2002-4. SARS killed approximately 8,000 people worldwide and more than 5,000 of them were in China.
“I think there is a really reasonable logic to what the Chinese might be doing with regard to SARS coronavirus vaccines because they saw the impact SARS had on their country,” he claimed.
“They had more than enough reason — as we did post 9/11 — to try to do things to protect ourselves,” Kadlec told Axios in an interview.
The Covid report comes out and “I told you so“ comes to mind. But, it’s OK, it was “unintentional“. The United States/Fauci/Obama funded the Wuhan institute and knew full well that gain of function research was happening there!

In September 2020, Michael McCaul, who is a Republican serving as minority leader of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, also released a report by did not blame the Wuhan lab. He blamed the Chinese authorities for covering up the outbreak.
“It is beyond doubt that the CCP actively engaged in a cover-up designed to obfuscate data, hide relevant public health information, and suppress doctors and journalists who attempted to warn the world,” McCaul charged.
“By responding in a transparent and responsible manner, the CCP could have supported the global public health response and shared information with the world about how to handle the virus. It is likely the ongoing pandemic could have been prevented had they done so, saving hundreds of thousands of lives and the world from an economic meltdown,” he added.
In January, the Department of Energy concluded with “low confidence” that the pandemic “likely” originated from the laboratory in Wuhan, according to a classified report shared with those sitting on the House and Senate Intelligence committees.
A month later, Christopher Wray, the FBI director, claimed that the FBI believed COVID probably originated from a “potential lab incident” in Wuhan.
Robert Redfield, a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic in March that he believed the virus originated in the Wuhan lab.
“Based on my initial analysis of the data, I came to believe and I still believe today that it indicates that COVID-19 more likely was a result of an accidental lab leak than the result of a natural spillover event,” Redfield told the committee at the time. “This conclusion is based primarily on the biology of the virus itself.”
