The Chinese laboratory at the center of new theories about how the coronavirus pandemic began was the subject of multiple urgent warnings inside the U.S. State Department, according to a new report.

As reported by The Washington Post reported Tuesday, U.S. Embassy officials warned in January 2018 about inadequate safety at the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab and passed on information about “scientists conducting risky research on coronavirus from bats.”

Editor’s Note: Golly, it’s almost like the World Health Organization, the mainstream media, and all those Democrats who have spent the last several months demonizing the Trump administration and carrying China’s water are completely full of crap!

Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Tuesday afternoon, “It should be no surprise to you that we have taken a keen interest in [the leaked cables from the State Department] and we’ve had a lot of intelligence take a hard look at that.”

Meanwhile, the United Kingdom said the idea that the virus was leaked from a Wuhan lab is “no longer being discounted.”

From Fox News:

A member of the U.K. government’s emergency committee of senior officials claimed Sunday: “There is a credible alternative view (to the zoonotic theory) based on the nature of the virus. Perhaps it is no coincidence that there is a laboratory in Wuhan.”

Foreign affairs expert Gordon Chang said in a recent opinion piece on Fox News that “many Chinese believe the virus either was deliberately released or accidentally escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a P4-level bio-safety facility.”

He added: “This lab, known for studying coronaviruses, is not far from the market that had been initially identified as the source of the outbreak.”

But that’s probably just a coincidence, according to sharp-thinking “truth over facts” Democrats.
