ith the Republicans having won a majority in the House of Representatives for the new Congress, leaders inthat chamber are beginning to make some of their plans and priorities known, including investigating Hunter Biden’s business deals and Joe’s involvement, removing Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and potentially removing Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell from the House Intelligence Committee.
According to Representative Steve Scalise, (R-LA), who was elected House Majority Leader for the upcoming session, said on Monday that Joe Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal, Hunter Biden’s “laptop scandal,” and the origin of COVID-19 will be investigated.
Republicans in Congress have made efforts at investigating the origin of COVID-19 and what role the United States possibly played by funding gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology through EcoHealth Alliance. It was back in 2021 when Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) harshly questioned FBI Director Chris Wray, about that agency’s interactions with Chinese virologist Yan Li-Meng, who came to the United States inApril 2020 and presented the FBI with evidence that COVID-19 was an engineered virus (due to a telltale double CGG amino acid sequence), hinting that the FBI was part of a cover-up.
Various Senate committees have looked into U.S. funding of gain-of-function research at Wuhan, and in October the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee Minority oversight staff concluded in an interim report that “SARS-CoV-2 and the resulting COVID-19 global pandemic was, more likely than not, the result of a research-related incident associated with coronavirus research in Wuhan, China.” Without having amajority in either chamber, though, their efforts have been stymied.
