Deputy National Security Advisor Matthew Pottinger stated what we’ve thought for months.
That the Wuhan market origins of COVID-19 were a complete fabrication.
In a Zoom meeting with UK officials, Pottinger commented that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is likely the most credible source of the virus.

These reports began surfacing months ago, but the mainstream media quickly dismissed them as a wild conspiracy theory.
Independent outlets even were censored or banned for dare mentioning COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan lab.
It’s not surprising when you realize what they’re attempting to hide from the public.
It may have originated in Wuhan China but who turned it lose on the World? China was working with Corona Virus in cooperation with other countries. UNC Chapel Hill & Harvard involved somehow. Obama & Fauci arranged funding through NIAID for GOF research. https://t.co/Wuj0c1L5Bn https://t.co/99uKe2MKjZ

China virus! Wuhan virus!
Sources say Fauci helped fund & promote the deadly coronavirus research in partnership w/China & UNC Chapel Hill. Fauci even cont’d the dangerous research in Wuhan after American gov’t banned it in USA https://t.co/dirofc8OlS

Wuhan lab was performing experiments on bats from coronavirus caves https://t.co/MyGJpIbbgD via @MailOnline – Why did Dr Fauci’s institute, in the US, fund the Coronavirus research at the Wuhan laboratory, in China?🤔

You have to wonder what Fauci meant when he predicted a future pandemic in 2017:
How much did he really know?
He certainly knew the risks of the dangerous coronavirus research before offshoring it to China.
Despite the efforts to fool the world by saying COVID-19 originated in a wet market, the crazy conspiracy theorists will ultimately prove to be on the money.
Zero Hedge reported on the meeting:
The most ‘credible’ theory about the origin of COVID-19 is that it escaped from a Chinese laboratory, according to US National Security Adviser Matthew Pottinger, who made the comment during a Zoom meeting with UK officials.
“There is a growing body of evidence that the lab is likely the most credible source of the virus,” said Pottinger, referring to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to the Daily Mail, which notes that ‘even China’s leaders openly admit their previous claims that the virus originated in a Wuhan market are false.’
Pottinger was one of the first US officials to sound the alarm at the White House over the origins of the virus in January 2020, when he initially suspected that the outbreak originated in a Chinese lab – after which Pottinger ordered US intelligence agencies to search for evidence. Good thing he kept this theory to himself, or Twitter may have banned him.
He also slammed the World Health Organization’s probe as a ruse – saying “MPs around the world have a moral role to play in exposing the WHO investigation as a Potemkin exercise,” referring to the facade villages created in 18th Century Crimea to convince the visiting Russian Empress Catherine the Great that the region was doing well.
Iain Duncan Smith, the former Tory Party leader who attended the meeting, said Mr Pottinger’s comments represented a ‘stiffening’ of the US position on the theory that the virus came from a leak at the laboratory, amid reports that the Americans are talking to a whistleblower from the Wuhan institute.
‘I was told the US have an ex-scientist from the laboratory in America at the moment,’ he said. ‘That was what I heard a few weeks ago.
‘I was led to believe this is how they have been able to stiffen up their position on how this outbreak originated.’
He added that Beijing’s refusal to allow journalists to visit the laboratory only served to increase suspicion that it was ‘ground zero’ for the pandemic. ‘The truth is there are people who have been in those labs who maintain that this is the case,’ he said.
‘We don’t know what they have been doing in that laboratory. They may well have been fiddling with bat coronaviruses and looking at them and they made a mistake. I’ve spoken to various people who believe that to be the case.’ –Daily Mail
“Even establishment figures in Beijing have openly dismissed the wet market story,” Pottinger told the call participants.
The New York Post also covered the story:
Pottinger, a staunch critic of Beijing, allegedly made the claim in a recent Zoom meeting with British officials.
“There is a growing body of evidence that the lab is likely the most credible source of the virus,” Pottinger reportedly said, according to the Daily Mail.
The Trump appointee pushed the theory as the European Union made a new investment deal with China last week over protests from Pottinger and hesitance from the incoming Biden administration.
Pottinger, one of the first U.S. officials to raise alarms inside White House walls about the origins of the virus back in January 2020, has reportedly suspected since the early days of the outbreak that the coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab.
He ordered U.S. intelligence agencies to search for evidence that it had, the New York Times reported in April.
A Chinese virologist who said she did some of the earliest research on COVID-19 has publicly claimed COVID-19 was man-made, and that the Chinese government covered up its dangers. Western medical experts have discredited the theory.
The World Health Organization has been investigating the source of the virus since the first case was made public in January 2020. Patient Zero has not been found.
