Grothman Requests Unredacted Copy of COVID-19 Origins’ Intelligence Report
Washington, August 20, 2021 | Timothy Svoboda (202-225-2476)
Today, Subcommittee on National Security Ranking Member Glenn Grothman (R-WI) sent a letter to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines requesting the Intelligence Community (IC) provide an unredacted copy of the classified IC report the origins of COVID-19.
“The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) spent the majority of the last year and a half misleading the world on the origins of COVID-19, promoting propaganda, concealing data, and enabling the virus to spread globally,” said Ranking Member Grothman. “Oversight Republicans have worked with leading experts to uncover the truth behind the origins of this pandemic. Given the opaque nature of so much of the background of this virus, I am making the request that the IC now shed further light on the CCP’s coverup. I look forward to reviewing the report when it is made available to Congress.”
On May 26, 2021, President Biden requested the IC increase their efforts into the investigation of the origins of the coronavirus pandemic and to provide a follow-up report within 90 days. On August 26, 2021, President Biden’s 90-day review period will conclude and under the direction of the President all findings should be reported to Congress.
