CNN: Biden team shut down Trump admin probe that aimed “to prove the coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab”

According to a new report from CNN “President Joe Biden’s team shut down a closely-held State Department effort launched late in the Trump administration to prove the coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab over concerns about the quality of its work, according to three sources familiar with the decision.”

“The existence of the State Department inquiry and its termination this spring by the Biden administration — neither of which has been previously reported — comes to light amid renewed interest in whether the virus could have leaked out of a Wuhan lab with links to the Chinese military. The Biden administration is also facing scrutiny of its own efforts to determine if the Chinese government was responsible for the virus,” the report adds.

During a recent episode of HillTV, Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti discuss the media’s change in coverage of the coronavirus “lab leak theory.”
