If you think you are as mad as you can possibly be at the labs in Wuhan, China, wait until you hear about this.
Suspicions have been raised that the U.S. government may have paid tens of millions of dollars in superfluous payments to those Chinese labs.
The payments were made through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), according to reports from CBS News.
“What I’ve found so far is evidence that points to double billing, potential theft of government funds. It is concerning, especially since it involves dangerous pathogens and risky research,” said former federal investigator Diane Cutler.
She examined 50,000 documents including U.S. government grants for high-risk research in China.
Now Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS), who hired Cutler to investigate, wants to create a 9/11-type commission to investigate what has really happened.
“I think there’s 1.1 million reasons that American taxpayers should care,” he said. “You’ll have a plane [crash]. We want to find out why the plane crashes. We go to any lengths to do that. And the hope is we don’t have another plane crash for the same reason.”
The former director of the CDC, Robert Redfield, testified that the NIH, the State Department, USAID, and the Defense Department-funded high-risk virus research in Wuhan.
Redfield was questioned by Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) about Dr. Anthony Fauci testifying in 2021. He said that there was no U.S. funding for gain-of-function research in China.
“Do you think that Dr. Fauci intentionally lied under oath to Sen. Paul when he vehemently denied NIH’s funding of gain-of-function research?” Malliotakis asked
“I think there is no doubt NIH was funding gain-of-function research,” Redfield answered.
“Is it likely American tax dollars funded the gain-of-function research that created this virus?” Malliotakis asked.
“I think it did, not only from the NIH but the State Department, from USAID, and from DOD,” Redfield replied.
