“Comer made the accusation against Fauci and the Chinese Communist Party during a Thursday phone interview, also blasting the Biden administration for wasting ‘a lot of time’ to get to the bottom of the Wuhan lab leak theory,” reported Fox News.
“The lead Republican on the House Oversight Committee also pointed to President Biden’s pledge to have his intelligence team look into it in ’90 days,’ which resulted in an inconclusive report, according to Fox News.
