Pompeo-led effort to hunt down Covid lab theory shut down by Biden administration over concerns abou

Source: CNN

about quality of evidence

President Joe Biden's team shut down a closely-held State Department effort launched late in the Trump administration to prove the coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab over concerns about the quality of its work, according to three sources familiar with the decision.

The existence of the State Department inquiry and its termination this spring by the Biden administration -- neither of which has been previously reported -- comes to light amid renewed interest in whether the virus could have leaked out of a Wuhan lab with links to the Chinese military. The Biden administration is also facing scrutiny of its own efforts to determine if the Chinese government was responsible for the virus.

Those involved in the previously undisclosed inquiry, which was launched last fall by allies of then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, say it was an honest effort to probe what many initially dismissed: that China's biological weapons program could have had a greater role in the pandemic's origin in Wuhan, according to two additional sources.

But the inquiry quickly became mired in internal discord amid concerns that it was part of a broader politicized effort by the Trump administration to blame China and cherry-pick facts to prove a theory.

3. Can't blame 'em there. I would not have taken the vaccine if Trump were still in office . . .

Don't trust those criminals with anything, let alone my health.

4. "quality of its work"

Choking and gasping for air! Oh! That was GOOD!

Would that be like Rudy Giuliani, or Paul Manafort type of 'quality?'

5. "cherry-pick facts to prove a theory" - that's a mighty generous characterization of the Trump

administration's modus operandi. They usually don't bother with facts at all, they just make everything up.

6. Honestly, I don't dismiss the possibility,

that the virus escaped the lab. With that said, if so, it was accidental. With that said, if the virus escaped the lab the Chinese should have immediately let the world know about what happened. The Chinese tried to hide the virus but so did Trump try to hide the virus. Trump even said at the onset that the Chinese had the situation under control.
