Sen. Marshall on COVID-19 Origins: There is a lot of Smoke Here

(Washington, D.C., May 24, 2021) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. was on FOX Business this afternoon to talk about the origins of COVID-19 saying in part that “there is a lot of smoke here” considering China has had 17 months to prove the virus did not leak from their Wuhan Institute of Virology and so far they haven’t.

As it relates to the World Health Organization doing an investigation, Senator Marshall said, “They will need a watch dog and they need unfettered access. I think if China gave us all the data, all the unfettered access, I think it would be great to have scientists from all over the world – not just the United States – but we can’t wait. We have to go down several parallel roads at the same time. We can walk and chew gum.”

Senator Marshall recently penned an op-ed for FOX News about the importance of getting to the bottom of the origins of COVID-19. The Senator said in part, “In approximately two weeks, the U.S. will be represented at the World Health Assembly where we need to ally with all nations and fight for a full and unrestricted investigation of the origin of COVID-19. We must demand full access to all relevant records, samples, and key personnel. If bad actors continue to obfuscate and prevent this investigation from happening, we can’t take no for an answer. Regardless, Congress must start our own parallel investigation now.” You may click HERE to read Senator Marshall’s op-ed in its entirety.

The op-ed came on the heels of Senator Marshall introducing a resolution calling for a bipartisan Select Committee to investigate the origins of COVID-19. The bipartisan Select Committee would consist of an equal number of Republicans and Democrats, chosen by the Leaders of their respective parties, and would have one year to complete its investigation and report to Congress and the American people.

Finally, Senator Marshall recently questioned Dr. Anthony Fauci at a Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) hearing about the origins of COVID-19. You may click HERE to watch the back and forth.
