“…For those who (like me) find the preponderance of information makes a compelling case for a laboratory origin, this appeared to have been mostly settled. Both Jeffrey Sachs (chair of the Lancet commission investigating the origin) and World Health Organization (WHO) Director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus have concluded that SARS-CoV-2 was engineered in a laboratory (see this reference). The Department of Energy (DOE) in a classified intelligence report has concluded that Covid-19 most likely originated with a leak from a laboratory, although this conclusion was made with “low” confidence. The FBI backed the lab leak theory with “moderate confidence” in a 2021 report. Christopher Wray, the FBI director, has also weighed in on the debate over Covid’s origins and endorsed the theory that it may have leaked from a lab. (see this reference). And we recently had Robert (Bob) Redfield throw Anthony Fauci, NIAID, the US State Department, USAID, and DoD under the bus concerning funding for the Wuhan Institute of Virology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (now under control of the CCP Peoples Revolutionary Army) to perform the gain of function research which purportedly gave rise to this virus. In this “Who is Robert Malone” substack, we have previously covered the Project Veritas document releases which appear to explain the “rationale” for this funding (see this reference and this 2022 reference) and Redfield’s testimony (see this reference).
The U.S. government may have made duplicate payments for projects at labs in Wuhan, China, through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), according to records reviewed by CBS News.
“What I’ve found so far is evidence that points to double billing, potential theft of government funds. It is concerning, especially since it involves dangerous pathogens and risky research,” said Diane Cutler, a former federal investigator with over two decades of experience combating white-collar crime and healthcare fraud.
Cutler found evidence of possible double payments as she investigated U.S. government grants that supported high risk research in China leading up to the COVID-19 pandemic. She was hired by Republican Sen. Roger Marshall, who took her records to USAID and the internal watchdog at USAID, which launched a new probe, details of which have not been previously reported.
Cutler said she has viewed over 50,000 documents, and that the U.S. government may have made duplicate payments for possible medical supplies, equipment, travel and salaries…”
