Judicial Watch Uses FOIA To Reveal US-Funded Wuhan Lab

As many likely already know, it is no secret that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) actively routed U.S. government money to fund research on a bat coronavirus at the Wuhanh lab prior to when the World Health Organization officially declared the start of a COVID-19 pandemic.

Now, a recently answered Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request has found that the U.S. government elected to send more money to the Wuhan lab in July 2020, months after the COVID-19 virus likely emerged from the same building.

A document uncovered by the leak, which was reported on by PJ Media, discussed government funding for an initiative called, “Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergence.” It lists the name of Peter Daszak, who serves as the president of EcoHealth Alliance. Inside that file is a “Notice of Award” to fund “activity with Wuhan Institute of Virology in the amount of $76,301.”

Perhaps even more damning than the wired cash is the file’s date: July 13, 2020.

This news comes after the former director of national intelligence John Ratcliffe more or less agreed that Fauci had lied under oath when he testified to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) that there was no type of gain-of-function research taking place at the NIH.

At one point, Fauci was seen quite literally shaking as he continued to deny that the U.S. government took part in putting money behind gain-of-function research. Those interested in taking a trip down memory lane can do so below:

In other recent developments, Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) put out a “bombshell” report on the origins of COVID-19 earlier this week that put forth further evidence pointing to the virus emerging from a Chinese lab in Wuhan. Marshall claims there were two outbreaks from the Wuhan lab, initially occurring around September or October 2019 and maybe even as early as July 2019.

A similar reveal from Judicial Watch came in March of last year when a FOIA request by the group uncovered that U.S. officials were assisting the Chinese in supporting the Wuhan Institute of Virology for years prior to the commencement of the COVID-19 virus outbreak, according to Fox News.
