It’s been pretty amazing watching the media finally come around to the possibility that the Wuhan coronavirus might have leaked from the lab, after a year of the media not even being willing to countenance it.
But now there’s another “conspiracy theory” that may get further look, too, with the comments of former Assistant Secretary of Health Dr. Brett Giroir to Bill Hemmer on Fox today.
Giroir was the COVID-19 testing czar under President Donald Trump, was part of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, and was also the U.S. representative to the WHO executive board. So one might think he has some qualifications to speak on the issue.
Giroir said that investigators should not, and could not yet, rule out the possibility that the virus was part of an “offensive bioweapons program.”

Giroir said he became convinced that it was a lab leak because there was no real evidence linking it to the natural world. But on the other side of it, the evidence about a lab leak was “becoming compelling,” he said including the nexus of the lab doing the bat coronavirus research near the origin. Giroir noted that lab leaks were not uncommon and had happened before. He also pointed to the data about the Chinese researchers getting ill in November 2019. Giroir said he did say this a year ago, “The only thing we knew was that there were no obvious fingerprints of this virus being engineered.” But he said he hadn’t ruled anything out, as opposed to Dr. Anthony Fauci who argued it had evolved in nature, despite the fact that there was “no data” to support it and “there’s still no data” that supports it.
Giroir reminds Hemmer about the huge cover-up to lock down all the information about what had happened by the CCP.
