But they say they are still examining a notion put forward by the president and aides that the pandemic may have resulted from an accident at a Chinese lab.

OK, so they know it's not manmade and they know it didn't come out of a lab, but they can't completely deny it otherwise the president will pout and make a fuss like the baby he is. Got it.

Yep, and they'll just keep on digging until they find those weapons of mass destruction - oh, sorry, that was a different beat-up.

The institute has an address 8 miles, or 13 kilometers, from the market that is considered a possible source.

Some pro-Trump poster was trying to tell us a couple of weeks ago that it was just 200 metres from the market. 200 metres, 13 kilometres - it's all the same, if you really want it to be true.

Proof or not, several things are clear.

1.The CCP attempted to hide the truth.2.The viral spread was confined to the source far too late.3.The CCP allowed a lethal viral outbreak to knowingly infect foreign countries by allowing Chinese tourists to travel abroad.

The actions of the CCP go beyond negligence, they are criminal......

All of the noise about the possible source is a distraction from the fact that our government chose to ignore, FOR MONTHS, the pending disaster. Trump wants to divert attention onto China to take the attention away from him and the way that he chose to NOT deal. He was too busy playing golf to be bothered.

Apparently there are two labs, one several hundred meters away, and then the P4 lab across the river upstream about 8 miles away.

U.S. intelligence agencies are debunking a conspiracy theory, saying they have concluded that the new coronavirus was “not manmade or genetically modified."

Considering the track record of these "intelligence agencies", I would not put too much weight into their opinions. What does intellgenice agency personnel know about virology, anyway?

If it's not man-made, that means it's not man-made from an US lab too, right China?

The Avenger - All of the noise about the possible source is a distraction from the fact that our government chose to ignore, FOR MONTHS, the pending disaster.

It's amazing how far the Chinese government, and their supporters, will go in order to avoid the obvious fact that the deadly virus from Wuhan, China originated in Wuhan, China. In 2019, Pelosi, and her lock-stepping Democrats, were too busy trying to remove Trump from office, this time thru a phony impeachment trial, and couldn't be bothered with Chinese viruses. Thru November and December of 2019, the Chinese government was busy trying to hide their virus from the rest of the world. The WHO certainly wasn't doing their job as it pertains to protecting the world from deadly pandemics. In January 2020, Trump restricted air traffic from China. Pelosi repeatedly claimed that it was racist to do so. Pelosi even took the time out of her busy schedule to made a public appearance in San Francisco's Chinatown district in order to tell her constituents that they should come to the area and enjoy the environment. (Cough, cough) The WHO was claiming that the Wuhan flu wasn't transmittable between humans. Or maybe the WHO was just passing along the Chinese government's opinion?
