During their discussion, Senator Cotton stated that the NIH funding by Dr. Fauci to the Wuhan labs could be a “genuine scandal”:
“It is imperative that the NIH come clean and tell us exactly what happened… Well, I think that a lot of these so-called experts and scientific bureaucrats are trying to cover their tracks. Again, this could be a genuine scandal. This could be public health bureaucrats violating explicit direction from the Obama White House to continue research that is highly, highly dangerous and particularly susceptible to escape from a laboratory. Especially a laboratory in China.”
