Rep. Rosendale Reacts To Reports That Wuhan Lab Shipped Coronavirus To Fauci-Run Lab In Hamilton Prior To Pandemic

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congressman Matt Rosendale (MT-02) issued the following statement after reports that the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China shipped a strain of coronavirus, WIV1, to the National institute of Health Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, Montana, in 2018 for experiments.

Our government helped create the Wuhan flu, then shut the country down when it escaped from the lab,” said Rep. Rosendale. “Fauci and his cohorts must be held accountable!

Moreover, I will not stand by and allow the U.S. to send another penny to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and will utilize every tool available to me during the appropriations process to ensure this funding stops.”
