Highlights From The House of Foreign Affairs Report on The Origin of The Coronavirus

Executive Summary

  • The House of Foreign Affairs has a highly illuminating report on the origin of the coronavirus.
  • I cover some of the highlights of the report.


In August 2021, the House of Foreign Affairs Committee produced a report titled The Origins of Covid-19. This report is filled with unique and damning information, much of which I had never read before. And predictable, it was barely covered by the mainstream media, who prefer to spend their time bringing Dr. Fauci onto programs to answer questions about wearing masks rather than investigating.  However, the conclusion is precisely written above when this article was published in May 2021.

The quotes I found of interest are included below.

The Report Concludes the Virus Was Released from Wuhan

Based on the material collected and analyzed by the Committee Minority Staff, the preponderance of evidence suggests SARS-CoV-2 was accidentally released from a Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory sometime prior to September 12, 2019. The virus, or the viral sequence that was genetically manipulated, was likely collected in a cave in Yunnan province, PRC, between 2012 and 2015. Researchers at the WIV, officials within the CCP, and potentially American citizens directly engaged in efforts to obfuscate information related to the origins of the virus and to suppress public debate of a possible lab leak.

Such an unequivocal statement from a US government entity is quite remarkable, considering that when the topic of a lab leak was first broached, it was widely called a conspiracy theory, and Big Tech actively censored this conclusion.

The Wet Market Hypothesis Should be Dismissed

Last September, the House Foreign Affairs Committee Minority Staff, under the direction of Ranking Member Michael T. McCaul, released a report on the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic. That report highlighted the possibility SARS-CoV-2 could have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). However, as we continued our investigation and uncovered more information, we now believe it’s time to completely dismiss the wet market as the source of the outbreak. We also believe the preponderance of the evidence proves the virus did leak from the WIV and that it did so sometime before September 12, 2019.

Something to note is that the wet market or zoonotic hypothesis never had any evidence to support it. The CCP and Peter Daszak proposed enormous reasons to try to point away from the Wuhan Institute of Technology. Peter Daszak has continually stated that “blaming” the WIV is a conspiracy theory and that…

Allegations and conjecture are of no help, as they do not facilitate access to information and objective assessment of the pathway from a bat virus to a human pathogen that might help to prevent a future pandemic. Recrimination has not, and will not, encourage international cooperation and collaboration.

However, following the trail of evidence to the WIV is appropriate. Furthermore, the WIV and the CCP have done nothing but cover up the source of the virus and then blame other countries for being the source. Daszak has himself pointed to farms in southern China as the source. Daszak has no problem with this “recrimination” as long as it means away from his baby — which is the WIV. Daszak puts forward the concept of “cooperation”; however, the type of cooperation he is interested in is helping the CCP and WIV cover-up that they are the source of the coronavirus. Secondly, Daszak wants cooperation in assisting the US government in covering up the fact that they irresponsibly and stupidly funded this work — with what is now clear was close to no oversight.

Global mainstream media adopted the lab leak hypothesis without the media asking for any evidence that the hypothesis was confirmed. In my view, this was bizarre, as the CCP has a long history of lying and is not a reliable source of information on any topic. There were also many holes in the hypothesis right from the beginning.

The wet market hypothesis is the plot of the 2011 movie Contagion. However, no evidence was ever presented that coronavirus came from Wuhan’s wet market, which we now know it could not have.
