New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R) warned Dr. Anthony Fauci and others he will get to the bottom of the origins of COVID after an explosive report in the Wall Street Journal claimed the U.S. Energy Department concluded the virus came from a lab leak in China.
Jeff said: “We’re going to dig in the House of Representatives. The House really wants to know true answers. These are some of the things we talked about even during the campaign. It’s enough. People are tired. They want a government that tells them the truth.
“They want a government that works for them. We don’t work for the government. I hate to say it this way, but this is sick stuff. It’s been lie after lie, misinformation after misinformation.
“And it’s about time we crack this egg open and really find what’s actually going on.
Jon Stewart was one of the first people who made it acceptable to publicly talk about the lab leak “theory”.

“What’s most hurtful, not only did the Chinese and we and we know the real truth, poison the world and the United States, I mean, let’s just tell the truth.
“Hopefully it was an accident.
“But not only did they do this, but they lied about it.
“And we have an administration that doesn’t have the guts to go forward and get the truth out of them.
“And we paid for that part of it all.
“We paid for the damn lab.”
According to The WSJ:
The U.S. Energy Department has concluded that the Covid pandemic most likely arose from a laboratory leak, according to a classified intelligence report recently provided to the White House and key members of Congress.
The shift by the Energy Department, which previously was undecided on how the virus emerged, is noted in an update to a 2021 document by Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines’s office.
The new report highlights how different parts of the intelligence community have arrived at disparate judgments about the pandemic’s origin.
The Energy Department now joins the Federal Bureau of Investigation in saying the virus likely spread via a mishap at a Chinese laboratory.
Four other agencies, along with a national intelligence panel, still judge that it was likely the result of a natural transmission, and two are undecided.
Holy Shit!! I love Woody Harrelson.
