House Republicans held a panel presentation today to discuss the origins of COVID-19 (which the Democrats couldn’t be bothered to attend). During the presentation, Republicans on the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis heard from several scientists and shared their own statements regarding their investigation thus far, (many of which track with reporting we’ve been bringing you here at RedState).

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) presided over the panel. Per the NY Post:

“We have asked that question for more than a year and requested that the House majority hold hearings to investigate the origins of COVID. Perplexingly, Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi [(D-Calif.)] has refused to allow a single hearing — calling it a ‘diversion,’” Scalise said in his opening statement. “As the American people will hear today from our expert witnesses, this is far from
