A CIA whistleblower testifying before Congress says the agency offered a “significant monetary incentive” to a team investigating COVID’s origins to change their narrative after six of the seven-member team concluded that it likely came from a lab.
The six were given the incentive to say instead that there was uncertainty as to where the virus originated. The official reports from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence since then have gone on record as “The intelligence community has not come to a conclusion on whether the pandemic was spurred by a lab leak or from “natural exposure” by an infected animal — like at one of the wet markets in China,” according to Fox News.
The Energy Department and the FBI, on the other hand, believe COVID-19 originated from a lab leak.
House Coronavirus Subcommittee Chairman Brad Wenstrup and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner said “the [whistleblower’s] allegations come from ‘a seemingly credible source,’ and requires the committees to conduct further oversight of ‘how the CIA handled its internal investigation into the origins of COVID-19.’”
