The Biden administration ended an inquiry into a possible connection between the origins of the novel coronavirus and a lab in Wuhan, a CNN report published Tuesday claims.
The State Department launched the previously undisclosed inquiry last fall under President Donald Trump — but the effort was shut down this spring because of “concerns about the quality of its work,” CNN reported, citing three unnamed sources.
Allies of Mike Pompeo, Trump’s secretary of state, were looking into the possibility that the coronavirus pandemic may have started in the Wuhan Institute of Virology and not in nature, CNN reported.
But after the changeover in administrations, concerns were raised early in 2021 about draft findings of the probe shared with Biden’s team, CNN said.
The State Department confirmed to CNN that the inquiry had stopped but said it is continuing to work with other agencies on “COVID origins issues.”
Pompeo, now a Fox News contributor, told the network this week he believed the virus originated in a lab and that the China’s government was covering up.
“I am confident that we will find that the evidence that we have seen to date is consistent with a lab leak and I’m convinced that’s what we’ll see,” he said.

Are we surprised?
Unpunished stolen elections have major consequences.
The TraitorJoe kakistocracy continues to give more aid and comfort to the enemy of the United States.
Nothing to see here....move along...
What a surprise.
“..the effort was shut down this spring because of “concerns about the quality of its work,”
You bet they were concerned about the quality of its work. Just like their concern about the quality of the Arizona audit. It’s waaay too high for their liking.
What would you expect from Beijing Biden?
The chinese ass kisser known as number 46 is a disgrace. He should be in the DC Jail, not the Jan 6th group.
I heard a short blurb by his Sec of State yesterday. He should be in jail with him.
True, but all democRATs and many Repugnants ignore that basic truth. We are truly a minority for the first time in America’s history.
Well, now we know that there was a lab lead from Wuhan and that joe is repaying the chicoms for helping him get elected.
This is exactly like a bank robber calling off his trial. It stinks and just racks up more points for Biden as a total criminal and demented idiot.
Hunter and friends can only shake down China if the ‘big guy’ comes through...
The DOJ and FBI are corrupt tools of white liberal ‘elites’... someone should at least give them a small cut of the ‘Chinese Action’... Chinese have lots of ‘walking around money’ for our traitors to split.
The Chinese expect something for their 10% to the “Big Guy”
