Sen. Marshall on Biden Covid Documents Release: “Late and Does Not Provide the Full Picture”
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. issued the following statement after the Biden Administration released new intelligence documents related to the origins of Covid-19:
“As we’ve seen nearly every step of the way while trying to uncover the origins of the Covid-19 virus, the Biden Administration has failed to be transparent with the American people and members of Congress. The late night release of these declassified documents is late and does not provide the full picture of what our intelligence agencies know. As a member of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, I believe all of those individuals within our intelligence community should appear before the Committee and walk us through these materials so we can get to the bottom of the Covid-19 pandemic that killed over a million Americans. I will not rest until the American people know the truth, the bad actors are held accountable, and we make sure this can never happen again,” Senator Marshall said.
In March 2023 President Biden signed into law the Covid-19 Origins Act, legislation that requires the Biden Administration to declassify information from the intelligence community that relates to the origins of the Coronavirus pandemic. Under the law, President Biden was supposed to release these materials by June 18, 2023.
