Biden wants US intelligence to investigate the Wuhan lab leak, gives them 90 days to report back – after he shut down “Pompeo-led probe” and dismissed Trump’s claims months ago.
President Biden has asked his intelligence agencies to step up their efforts to get to the truth about the origins of COVID-19 amid growing concern that it emerged from a Chinese laboratory.
Senior scientists have recently admitted they may have leapt to conclusions in assuming the virus jumped from an animal host in the wild to humans.
‘I have now asked the intelligence community to redouble their efforts to collect and analyze information that could bring us closer to a definitive conclusion, and to report back to me in 90 days,’ said Biden.
‘As part of that report, I have asked for areas of further inquiry that may be required, including specific questions for China.’
‘The United States will also keep working with like-minded partners around the world to press China to participate in a full, transparent, evidence-based international investigation and to provide access to all relevant data and evidence,’ he said.
