President also asks US intelligence community to explore the unlikely possibility that virus origins trace to Chinese lab
Still “unlikely” at The Guardian…..
Biden’s request included asking the US intelligence community to explore the unlikely possibility that the origins of the virus trace to Chinese lab. After months of minimizing the possibility as a fringe theory, the Biden administration is responding both to domestic and geopolitical concerns about putting pressure on China to be transparent about the outbreak.
Republicans, including former president Donald Trump, have promoted the theory that the virus emerged from a laboratory accident, rather than naturally through human contact with an infected animal.
Because if Trump said it therefore of course it must be wrong, right?
