At a Wednesday U.S. House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus pandemic response, former CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield told the subcommittee that U.S. taxpayer funds were likely used to fund the gain of function research that created the Covid-19 Virus. NationalFile previously reported these facts on April 13, 2020.
U.S. Rep. Malliotakis (R-NY) directly asked Redfield about gain of function research at Wednesday’s hearing. “Is it likely that American tax dollars funded the gain-of-function research that created this Virus?” the New York congresswoman asked.
“I think it did not only come from NIH, but from the State Department, USAID, and DOD,” Redfield said. “Remember this pandemic did not start in January at the seafood market. We all know that there were infections all the way back in September .”

At the same hearing, Congressman Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) asked Dr. Redfield about any potential benefit of the program. “Has gain-of-function stopped a pandemic in your opinion?” Wenstrup asked.
“No, in the contrary, I think it probably caused the greatest pandemic our world has seen.” Dr. Redfield replied.

National File reported on April 13, 2020, Covid-19 originated from a lab in Wuhan, China.
EcoHealth Alliance whistleblow Andrew Huff told the Stew Peters Show two months ago that the CIA has known about the true origins of COVID for quite some time. “I think the U.S. government knew about this [covid and its lab leak origins] in October or late September 2019. So by January 2020, the cover-up was already well underway” Huff said on the Stew Peters Show.
In recent weeks the U.S. Energy Department and the FBI have concluded that Covid-19 originated and leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab in Wuhan, China. Interestingly the CIA remains undecided about Covid’s origins.
Congressional Republicans have promised more hearings into Covid’s origins and cover-ups. It is unknown if Dr. Anthony Fauci will be subpoenaed or not.
