Grab Your Popcorn, CNN Forced To Eat Crow, Admits Trump Was Right About Wuhan Lab

Very early on in the pandemic, Trump refused to accept the theory that COVID-19 came from a Wuhan wet market in China. It was so obvious to anyone with half a brain that the more likely culprit was the bio lab in the same town, U.S. intelligence findings recently declassified by the State Department provide fresh evidence for the theory that the COVID-19 pandemic likely began at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, China’s sole high-security laboratory that has links to the country’s military.

Democrats and the left-wing media ripped into the president, calling him a racist. They completely ignored previous reports from diplomats who visited the lab back in 2017-2018 and reported back to officials that the lab was at-risk.

They also largely ignored the many potential risk factors of the World Health Organization’s (W.H.O) compromising ties with China and the lack of accurate intel provided by the Chinese government.

During an interview with CNN’s John Berman, Guest Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin confirmed that Trump was right. The deranged network was forced to agree with the facts.

Berman begins, “So, as we mark one year of the coronavirus pandemic in this country, questions remain over the origin of the virus. A new book reveals warnings from U.S. diplomats of risky experiments at a Wuhan lab in 2018. Joining me now, CNN political analyst Josh Rogin — he is the author of the new book, Chaos Under Heaven: Trump, Xi and the Battle for the 21st Century. I’m holding the book right here, Josh — I read it this weekend — it’s a terrific read.”

After the outbreak W.H.O ‘investigated the Chinese government’s involvement. “They visited a Wuhan lab, and they put out a statement saying it’s highly unlikely that the virus originated here. Your ground-breaking reporting from over the last year, which you expand on in the book, it really casts doubts on what the W.H.O. is saying. How and why?” The clueless host questioned.

Rogin points out that the “Biden administration has said that they have deep concerns about the W.H.O. investigation that went to Wuhan because of some conflicts of interest among the staff but also because the Chinese government refused to put forth the data that they would really need to figure it out. So suffice to say the W.H.O. investigation, at least according to the Biden administration, will not be the end all and be all, which means that we still don’t know how the virus originated. And that’s not just the issue of blame.”

He added, “That’s an issue of tracing the origin in order to prevent the next pandemic, which will surely come. And what I’m adding in this book is a lot of warnings that were ignored frankly at the beginning of the Trump administration by diplomats who visited some labs. It doesn’t prove that the labs were involved — it doesn’t disprove it. It just points to the need for more investigation. That’s exactly what the Biden administration is calling for.”

That’s when Rogin tried to hit the network with ‘breaking news’- Surprise it’s the same information we have been aware of for over a year now.

“Biden administration is actually not disputing some of the Trump administration’s claims about this very lab, namely that the researchers there got sick in November 2017 with COVID-like symptoms, and that they were involved in some undisclosed research with the Chinese government and the Chinese military. These are some of the claims the Trump administration made. And while the Biden administration is not endorsing any theory about the origin — they don’t know, you don’t know, I don’t know how this started — they are saying that some of the information about the lab that the Trump administration put forward is accurate, from U.S. intelligence community sources, and we need more information. We need more investigation.”


Knowing the significance of the Wuhan virologists’ discovery, and knowing that the WIV’s top-level biosafety laboratory (BSL-4) was relatively new, the U.S. Embassy health and science officials in Beijing decided to go to Wuhan and check it out. In total, the embassy sent three teams of experts in late 2017 and early 2018 to meet with the WIV scientists, among them Shi Zhengli, often referred to as thebatwoman because of her extensive experience studying coronaviruses found in bats.

The diplomates would return to warn officials in 2018 about the potential risks at the Wuhan labs. Trump cut Obama-era funding to the lab prior to that report, but other officials largely ignore the warning.
