Today, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) slammed Democrats, the media, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for dismissing those who suspected that the COVID-19 virus leaked from China’s dangerous Wuhan Institute of Virology as “conspiracy theorists.”
Ernst highlighted that at least $1.7 million U.S. tax dollars went to this lab for risky research on bat coronaviruses and noted her ongoing effort to immediately and permanently debar the Wuhan Institute from receiving another cent of U.S. funding.
