It’s been almost four years since the COVID-19 pandemic swept the globe, but we still don’t know exactly where the virus came from. Was it really a pathogen spawned in a bat cage? Or did it come from a lab with sinister intentions?
Army Reserve officer, war veteran, doctor, and COVID subcommittee member Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) joins Glenn Beck to discuss this most serious issue.
Wenstrup tells Glenn that when the pandemic began, he began looking into how to effectively treat patients, and during this research, he “discovered that we were actually engaging with China in the lab in Wuhan to create gain-of-function viruses.”
Fast forward three years, and now “we have somebody coming forward as a whistleblower ... to both the Intelligence Committee and to the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, which I chair, and he's made many allegations,” says Wenstrup.
“The CIA, in trying to figure out whether this came from a lab or from nature, put together a COVID discovery team,” he tells Glenn.
Here were their results:
“Six of the people — they came to the conclusion with some level of confidence that this came from a lab,” Wenstrup explains, “and the senior person, according to these charges, said it came from nature.”
So it was a 6 to 1 vote.
But was that shared with the public? Of course not.
But they didn’t just conceal the findings; they outright lied.
“What they ended up doing at the end of the day [was] releasing to the public and to the Intelligence Community ... [that] the CIA was unable to determine” the origins of the virus, explains Wenstrup.
“Well, it sounds like they had a really high number of people who were able to determine,” he says.
Granted Wenstrup’s committee has a responsibility to “follow up on everything to do with the with the pandemic,” it’s now “seeking documents, communications,” and to speak with “Andrew Makridis, who the whistleblower says was the chief operating officer and had a lot to do with constructing this.”
Wenstrup admits that it’s deeply concerning to find out “our own intelligence department is changing things from what people actually did and said to fit a narrative that they want.”
