YUGE: Senate panel advances bipartisan bill to investigate Wuhan Animal Lab leak!

Update (4/21/21): The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 21-1 to advance the bipartisan Strategic Competition Act, which would launch an investigation into the possibility that a leak at the Wuhan Animal Lab caused the COVID-19 pandemic. Next, the full U.S. Senate will consider the bill at a date to be determined.

Original post

A year ago, we first exposed that U.S. taxpayers were funding treacherous and cruel coronavirus experiments on animals at the Wuhan Animal Lab, which many leading experts now believe may have caused the COVID-19 pandemic.


In February, we called for an independent probe into the lab leak hypothesis (which 77 percent of taxpayers want too!). And just last month, we exposed that the shady U.S. nonprofit that trafficked taxpayer funding to the Wuhan Animal Lab repeatedly broke federal law by failing to disclose how much of your money it shipped to the notorious virus lab.


Now, the U.S. Senate is crossing party lines to investigate all of this, including whether COVID-19 leaked from the U.S.-taxpayer-funded Wuhan Animal Lab and exactly what kinds of dangerous and cruel coronavirus manipulation experiments on animals the National Institutes of Health was quietly bankrolling there for years.

The important measure is included as part of the new Strategic Competition Act of 2021 (S. 1169) introduced by Senate Foreign Relations Committee leaders Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Jim Risch (R-ID). See Section 214 of the bill for the lab leak-related text.

Just this week, WCW and Waste Warrior Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) published a new op-ed in Newsweek explaining why it’s critical that we get answers about what the NIH was funding at the Wuhan Animal Lab and what it knew about reported biosafety issues there.  


Please take a moment to tell Congress you want them to pass the COST Act so you can see how your money is being spent, hold animal experimenters accountable, and prevent future pandemics.

It would be very concerning if that lab was not investigated, or any more American tax payer money was sent there. It is far too striking of a coincidence that covid-19 originates from the same place as this lab.

Trovo che non sia giusto che i soldi dei contribuenti vengano investiti nella ricerca che gli stessi ritengono ingiusta e crudele, venga scartata una metodologia che viene ritenuta, da esperti, più utile e sicura e che evita la sofferenza di esseri senzienti e indifesi
