Tuesday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends First,” Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) discussed the House Foreign Affairs Committee Republicans’ probe into the possible origins of COVID-19.
Steube said it is now known the virus leaked from a lab in September 2019 and then some participants of the Military World Games that same year in Wuhan left with “COVID-like symptoms.”
“[W]e should be investigating this as a government, not just Republicans,” Steube argued. “Unfortunately, Democrats don’t want to have anything to do with this. They would rather investigate the January 6 event where already 500-600 people have been arrested than investigate the cause of millions of deaths of people in the world and over 600,000 in the United States.”
“We know now for a fact that in September of 2019 they took virus and sample database out in the middle of the night from the Institute of Virology without explanation and then a month later in October during the Military World Games that were held in Wuhan that several of the competitors came down with COVID-like symptoms and were hospitalized and then were sent back to their home countries, so we now know this started in 2019 long before we thought it did,” he added.
