The Chinese Communist Party has proven Secretary of State Mike Pompeo right — which no doubt makes him feel very vindicated right now — by admitting that it destroyed coronavirus lab samples during the first months of the outbreak that originated in Wuhan, China.
Pompeo has stated on numerous occasions that China has refused to give American scientists and those from other countries access to samples of the virus that were taken from the first folks to have contracted the illness.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire:
It is a fact that China destroyed the lab samples, which they have now admitted to, which is in addition to other acts of deception that they have engaged in, including silencing whistleblowers, censoring terms on the internet related to the outbreak, intentionally lying about the extent of the outbreak in their country so they could hoard medical supplies, and intentionally lying about the origin of the outbreak, falsely claiming that the U.S. military brought the coronavirus to Wuhan.
China’s explanation that the reason that they destroyed the lab samples was for safety reasons should also be treated with suspicion due to the timeline of events because the day that China ordered that to happen, January 3, is the same day that the Trump administration first contacted the Chinese government and tried to send CDC officials into the country.
Pompeo was accused multiple times of being deceptive in his comments about the destruction of the samples, but as it turns out, he was 100 percent right about the whole thing.
By destroying the samples, China made it vastly more difficult to identify the exact origin of the outbreak, which is why there are now more and more calls for the country to be investigated. If China had been forthright about the information that was needed by other countries at the start of this outbreak, many different measures would’ve been taken and lives could’ve been saved. These folks are now responsible for this nightmare and should be held accountable for it.
