House Democrats on Tuesday blocked a GOP bill which would require the Director of National Intelligence to declassify information related to the US government's investigations into the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic - and in particular, what role the Wuhan Institute of Virology may have played in the outbreak.

The bill failed in the House by a vote of 216 - 207.

The COVID-19 Origin Act was introduced in the Senate by Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Mike Braun (R-IN), and was passed unanimously in May, according to Townhall. Then, it was brought to the House floor by Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) along with Reps. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) and Darin LaHood (R-IL).

"The best disinfectant is sunlight and that's what we can provide today," said Wenstrup. "The bill first establishes that we must identify the precise origins of COVID-19 because it is critical for preventing a similar pandemic in the future."

"I cannot stress enough that this bill is not controversial by any means," he continued. "In fact, it passed the Senate in May with unanimous consent — not one senator objected. Not Senators Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, not Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren. If those four members can get on board with this bill, should not we be able to do the same?"

Rep. LaHood further explained the legislation's purpose, saying it "would require the Biden administration Director of National Intelligence to declassify intelligence information related to any potential links between the Wuhan Institute of Virology — also known as the Wuhan lab — and the origins of COVID-19 in order to better prepare and avoid future pandemics."

"The bottom line is Americans deserve a full accounting of the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic," he added. -Townhall

In April, Hawley noted that "for over a year, anyone asking questions about the Wuhan Institute if Virology has been branded as a conspiracy theorist," adding "the world needs to know if this pandemic was the product of negligence at the Wuhan lab but the [Chinese Communist Party] has done everything it can to block a credible investigation. That's why the Biden administration must declassify what it knows about the Wuhan lab and Beijing's attempts to cover up the origin of the pandemic."

As The Federalist notes, "House Democrats’ vote against transparency comes just days after the World Health Organization urged China to cooperate with their second inquiry into the virus’s origins, citing previous difficulty working with the communist regime when China refused to share raw patient data with the WHO during the first round of investigations.

Poster Comment:

This is a Republican limited hangout position. The rest of the story is the origin of covid in a lab at the University of North Carolina.

This was planned as a contingency should Hillary lose the election, and should anyone other than the designated and approved president be up for re-election. If anyone believes that this was not a planned event, they would have to be completely delusional. Everything is scripted and planned to a degree of precision that no matter what, the plans are in place no matter what the outcome is.

That said, Trump was supposed to be removed and spend 4 years giving us all the illusion that America was going to turn around and become a world power again, and for 4 years we watched the media and the treasonous democrats pillory him. For 4 years we watched a movement be built to return our country to one of laws, and one of a constitutional mindset only to have it completely be undone on January 6th.

That day, and that event was when I realized that the previous 4 years were about demoralizing the people who wanted their country to be America, instead of yet another socialist hell hole. Now that the socialists are running things into the ground and they are doing so at the behest of China who is buying up our farms, and our country faster than we can stop them, we are going to be living in Western China very very soon, as they will soon be exporting to us, their dregs, their criminals, and their less than stellar compatriots. After all, who will work those Chinese owned farms? Mexicans????

We are a nation being destroyed by liars, traitors, murderers and thieves and they do not care as America has outlived its usefulness.
