House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on Sunday demanded the declassification of intelligence related to the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Night in America,” the lawmaker insisted that discovering the true beginnings of the virus is essential to preventing future outbreaks. McCarthy also lashed out at the Chinese government for its dishonesty regarding the coronavirus, stating:

“It’s a very heavy crisis because think about what people had to pay for this: 3.8 billion [sic] people have lost their lives because China lied to the world. Six hundred thousand of those 3.8 are Americans.”

He continued, criticizing social media companies for hampering people’s “ability to even talk about, of where it came from, or how to even call it Wuhan and others.”

The House Minority Leader went on to suggest that after declassifying the intelligence, the U.S. should take action:

But the first thing we should do is declassify the intelligence. That would show us it came from Wuhan. The next thing we should do is deny the function of funding in Wuhan anymore. We should deny NIH from their ability to give grants or subgrants to countries like China, Iran, North Korea or Russia. You know what we should do as well? We should limit the number of visas from China coming in. We should lift the sovereign immunity so those 600,000 individuals who died — their family — could actually have justice and sue China.

McCarthy also recommended relocating the 24th Winter Olympics:

“They shouldn’t be held in Beijing. If China lied to the rest of the world, why should the world reward them?”

He closed by reiterating his call for declassification, and taking a jab at the World Health Organization (WHO).

“We cannot get to the origin by listening to China or the World Health Organization. We should declassify the information and find first and foremost where it came from and let the entire world know.”

Of course, McCarthy, like anyone else with an IQ higher than AOC’s can tell that the lawmaker’s demands will not be met.
