Joe Biden found himself boxed in.
Even Biden’s allies began to run away.
And Democrats humiliated Joe Biden by handing these two Republicans a major win.
Republicans hammered Joe Biden over reports that Biden canceled a State Department investigation that began under Donald Trump to determine if the coronavirus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in Communist China.
Within hours Biden backtracked and issued a statement ordering the intelligence community to produce a report for him by August 24 detailing what America’s intelligence agencies knew about the lab leak theory.
That wasn’t good enough for Republicans who watched for years as rogue elements of the intelligence community schemed to frame Donald Trump as a secret Russian agent.
Republican Senators Josh Hawley and Mike Braun cosponsored legislation forcing Joe Biden to declassify intelligence that would link the coronavirus outbreak to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Senator Hawley explained that the mounting evidence meant the idea that the coronavirus escaped from a lab had moved well beyond a mere theory and the American people were owed answers.
“The American people deserve to know about the origins of COVID-19. They deserve to know how this terrible pandemic that has ravaged the globe and our country, how it got started and what China’s role was in starting it,” Hawley declared.
“Well, I think it’s time that the American people got to decide for themselves. It’s time that they actually got to see the evidence that the United States government has collected on this issue,” Hawley continued.
Senator Braun stated the intelligence community was sitting on evidence backing up the lab leak origin story, and that the American people were owed the chance to review what the government knew about how the coronavirus pandemic began.
“The intelligence communities, in our own country, are storing information, that needs to be revealed to the American public. It needs to be revealed to anyone who can look at it and make sense out of what has happened,” Braun exclaimed.
“Who disagrees with transparency?” Braun said. “It makes sense.”
The revelation that Biden ended an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus proved so politically toxic that Hawley and Braun’s amendment passed unanimously.
In today’s political environment, a resolution honoring Major League Baseball as the national pastime would likely receive some opposing votes so it was a shock to see every Democrat support Hawley and Braun’s bill.
Even more galling for Joe Biden was the fact that this was Josh Hawley’s bill.
Many Democrats consider Hawley a “seditionist” and hold Hawley personally responsible for the events of January 6, falsely claiming that Hawley announcing he would object to Pennsylvania’s Electoral College votes as igniting the mayhem that took place.
But Joe Biden’s blunders on investigating the coronavirus and refusing to hold Communist China accountable for unleashing this plague on the globe were so obvious that even Senate Democrats were forced to pick Josh Hawley over protecting Joe Biden.
