Four months before the Obama administration suspended federal funding for research that would benefit U.S. soil, the process by which virologists manipulated viruses to make them more widely transmitted to humans, was a subagency of the National Institutes of Health ( NIH) – led Anthony Fauci Dr. – effectively transferred this research to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) through a present of the nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance, led by Peter Daszak.
The first $ 666,442 The $ 3.7 million NIH payment provided to EcoHealth was paid in June 2014, with the same annual payment until May 2019 under “Understand the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Outbreak“Project, as we noticed in April.
As we are noticed in April, the WIV “to openly engage in research to gain expertise in collaboration with U.S. universities and institutions” in the years of the leadership of Dr. Shi ‘Batwoman’ Zhengli, agreed with Washington Postthe Josh Rogin.
Now, Daszak refused to comply with a month -long document request from House Republicans in connection with his lab work in Wuhan, according to Just the News.
As investigators and government reporters dig to determine the full scope of Daszak’s connections to the WIV, Daszak continues to deny a congressional request for that information.
In April, Republicans on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce sent a letter to Daszak who directed him to submit, among many other documents, “all letters, emails, and other communications between [EcoHealth] and [the WIV] related to terms of agreements, bat coronaviruses, genome or genetic sequencing, SARS-CoV-2, and / or laboratory safety methods”In line with NIH’s key research funding through EcoHealth’s Wuhan lab as a sub-recipient donor.
Although Daszak himself did not cooperate with the request. An aide to the Energy and Commerce Committee confirmed to Just the News this week that the committee “has not received a response since the EcoHealth Alliance and Peter Daszak’s April 16 letter from Leader Rodgers, Guthrie, and Griffith. ” -JTN
“We are asking Daszak to provide information that we know there is with him that sheds light on the origins of this pandemic,” Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, too noticed by the public Daszak’s refusal to play ball.
“Dr. Daszak, you received American funds that you used to do research on coronavirus bats at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, “Rodgers continued at a subcomm Committee meeting last week.” You owe the American people a debt of gratitude. transparent. “
Meanwhile, Congressional Democrats are not really interested in going under things – as they themselves hold the power of subpoena in the same rooms. The final authority, as JTN note, rest at that party – particularly the Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee Frank Pallone – who is more famous increased funding at Fauci’s NIH in 2015 up to $ 2 billion annually by 2020.
Why a subpoena was not issued for more than two months is unclear, but we can speculate…
