Energy Dept. Admits Lab Leak the Most Likely Source of COVID-19

'The lab-leak hypothesis was always reasonable, but reporters & activists in white lab coats nonetheless spent the better part of a year denouncing it as a 'conspiracy theory'...'

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) The United States Energy Department finally admitted that COVID-19 probably originated in a laboratory, according to a Sunday reported the Wall Street Journal.

The update is the result of new intelligence, according to Breitbart News.

The FBI and Energy Department now assert the virus probably originated in a lab, but this is not an unanimous opinion. Four other Federal agencies and a national intelligence panel, still argue that the virus probably originated from a wet market or some other natural transmission.

The Energy Department has “low confidence” in its new judgement, according to sources which have read the classified document.

Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark., explained on Fox News in May 2020, the virus originating in a Chinese laboratory aligned with the basic facts of the virus transmission and common sense.

“Here is what we do know, this virus did not originate in the Wuhan animal market,” he said at the time. “So we don’t know where it originated, but we do know we have to get to the bottom of that. We also know that just a few miles away from that market is China’s only bio-safety-level four super laboratory, that researches human infectious diseases.”

Cotton maintained a consistent level of pressure on the question of the origin of the virus.

“The common-sense case for a lab leak is the same as it was in January 2020, when I first mentioned the possibility,” he tweeted in 2021.

“Isn’t it strange that this once-in-a-century bat coronavirus pandemic just happened to emerge within a few miles of China’s biggest laboratory researching bat coronaviruses? Shouldn’t we at least look at that lab?”

Despite these facts many were strongly discouraged from asking these questions, as explained by Cotton.

“The lab-leak hypothesis was always reasonable, but reporters & activists in white lab coats nonetheless spent the better part of a year denouncing it as a ‘conspiracy theory,'” he tweeted. “They were wrong.”
