“The information provided suggests that Dr. Fauci was escorted to Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) headquarters – without a check-in – and participated in the analysis to ‘influence’ the Agency’s review,” Wenstrup said. . “Our goal is to ensure that the process of scientific investigation into the origins of COVID-19 is fair, impartial and free of alternative influences.”

The new allegations come after a high-level CIA official-turned-whistleblower alleged before Congress earlier this month that the intelligence agency offered to pay six analysts to bury his findings that COVID-19 likely spread. leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan. Porcelain.
The analysts, who discovered that SARS-CoV-2 likely originated in a Wuhan lab, were allegedly asked to report that the virus jumped from animals to humans, according to Wenstrup and the chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. , Mike Turner (R-Ohio).

The US intelligence community declassified its 10-page report on the origins of COVID in June, which found that “biosafety concerns” and “genetic engineering” were being carried out at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, but most of its “agencies assess that SARS-CoV-2 was not genetically modified.”
The CIA and another intelligence agency “remain unable to determine the precise origin of the COVID-19 pandemic, as both hypotheses rely on significant assumptions or face challenges with conflicting reports,” it says.
