Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), a ranking member on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, is requesting data, notes, and emails from the intelligence community’s report on the origins of COVID-19.
On Wednesday, Comer wrote a letter to Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines, requesting “all raw intelligence reports, meeting notes, and emails” from the intelligence community on which the report was based.
On Aug. 27, The report from the intelligence community (IC) was released but did not provide a conclusive assessment about the virus’s origin.
Comer wrote Haines in the letter posted by Politico, “Unfortunately, the Assessment on COVID-19 Origins (the Assessment) only served to provide more confusion providing the American public with a vague, two-page unclassified summary.”
“This is an unacceptable response that gives the American people little confidence our country is prepared for the next pandemic.”
The committee should get the requested documents by Sept. 29, Comer told Haines.
President Joe Biden requested a review into COVID-19’s origins, which led to the creation of the report. COVID-19 originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology with “moderate confidence,” The findings concluded, despite the fact that the four unnamed intelligence agencies cited in the report couldn’t agree on the virus’s origin.
Comer said in an Aug. 30 statement, “The Biden Administration’s failure to reach a definitive conclusion on the origins of COVID-19 underscores the need for an immediate congressionally-led investigation, Oversight Republicans have repeatedly called on Democrats to join our efforts, but they’ve refused.”
“The Chinese Communist Party has spent almost two years misleading the world, spreading propaganda, and intentionally concealing the severity of COVID-19. Failing to hold the CCP accountable for a virus that has taken the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans would be a stain on this institution. It’s past time for Democrats to join us in holding China accountable for their ongoing efforts to hide the truth.”
Comer on Wednesday told Newsmax that he and fellow GOP Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., are asking the Food and Drug Administration for documentation concerning Biden’s push for booster shots so they can determine the motivation behind his demand.
Comer said on Wednesday’s ”Wake Up America,” “Joe Biden’s been in office for eight months [and] he has never nominated an FDA commissioner, What he has over there are a bunch of career bureaucrats that it appears he’s trying to strong-arm on this booster shot issue.”
