New evidence provided by the Republican-led Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic shows that the CIA allegedly provided “monetary incentives” (no semantical elaboration provided) to its own analysts to abandon their conclusions that COVID originated in a dingy communist lab in China.
Via New York Post (emphasis added):
“The Central Intelligence Agency offered to pay off analysts in order to bury their findings that COVID-19 most likely leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, new whistleblower testimony to Congress alleges.
A senior-level CIA officer told House committee leaders that his agency tried to pay off six analysts who found SARS-CoV-2 likely originated in a Wuhan lab if they changed their position and said the virus jumped from animals to humans, according to a letter sent Tuesday to CIA Director William Burns.
Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Chairman Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mike Turner (R-Ohio) requested all documents, communications and pay info from the CIA’s COVID Discovery Team by Sept. 26.”
From the Subcommittee’s letter to CIA chief William Burns (emphasis added):
“The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic (Select Subcommittee) and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) (together “the Committees”) have received new and concerning whistleblower testimony regarding the Agency’s investigation into the origins of COVID-19.
A multi-decade, senior-level, current Agency officer has come forward to provide information to the Committees regarding the Agency’s analysis into the origins of COVID-19. According to the whistleblower, the Agency assigned seven officers to a COVID Discovery Team (Team). The Team consisted of multi-disciplinary and experienced officers with significant scientific expertise. According to the whistleblower, at the end of its review, six of the seven members of the Team believed the intelligence and science were sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that COVID-19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. The seventh member of the Team, who also happened to be the most senior, was the lone officer to believe COVID-19 originated through zoonosis. The whistleblower further contends that to come to the eventual public determination of uncertainty, the other six members were given a significant monetary incentive* to change their position.”
*”Monetary incentive” is obviously an amorphous phrase that could mean any number of things from direct cash payments to promises of promotions. These claims necessitate further investigation – not by the CIA but by a trusted authority, to the extent that there is such a thing left anywhere in the public domain.
It’s increasingly common knowledge that COVID emerged as a joint CCP-US government partnership spearheaded by still-unindicted former NIAID head Anthony Fauci who used the Chinese lab to skirt a prohibition on dangerous gain-of-function issued by federal authorities in 2014.
Yet, were the CIA, Fauci, NIH, et al. to have had their way, the massive censorship effort undertaken to prevent the truth from emerging would have potentially obscured COVID’s true provenance forever – an attempted cover-up of unprecedented proportions that cries out for punishment of those conspirators responsible.
All parties involved in the development of COVID-19 and the subsequent coverup need to be indicted. Reports filed by the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic are well and good, but until these people are prosecuted for crimes against humanity, all of this is merely red meat for the Republicans to dole out to their enraged base.
