(READ) Legislators question taxpayer funds awarded to Wuhan lab

The lead Republicans on the House Committees on Oversight and Judiciary, Reps. James Comer (R-Ky.), and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), have announced a probe into a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant.

The grant of taxpayer money was awarded to a nonprofit called “EcoHealth Alliance,” which then awarded U.S. taxpayer funds to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China to study bat coronaviruses.

As reported here, other U.S. taxpayer money was sent directly from NIH to research with Wuhan lab scientists, including controversial “Gain of Function” studies.

The Comer and Jordan letter is directed to Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Dr. Francis Collins, Director of NIH. It appears in full below:

  1. As you reported a few weeks ago and I have been saying since April 2020 we need to know more about the Labs financing. EcoHealth Aliiance received approx. $1.4M over a five year period from 2014-2019. Their on-line records clearly showed that Wuhan Lab was receiving these funds for “gain of function” research; I should have made a screen-shot as that table was “deleted” a week later. I believe you located their tax filing records which supported my comment. In addition, it was reported that there were DoD funds and NIH funds that went directly to that lab.
