Legal watchdog sues DNI, State Dept. for coronavirus origin documents:
Two lawsuits seeking documents from the State Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on the origin of the COVID-19 virus have been filed.
Judicial Watch announced the lawsuits Thursday, saying they were filed after document requests under the Freedom of Information Act had been ignored.
The lawsuits are seeking all documents held by intelligence agencies and cables from the State Department since 2017 on the Wuhan Institute of Virology, increasingly suspected as being a virus origin point.
The group also wants documents related to intelligence on the virus origin.
President Biden recently ordered U.S. intelligence agencies to conduct a 90-day investigation into the virus origin after an earlier inquiry resulted in several agencies deadlocked over whether virus pandemic broke out naturally or was the result of a laboratory mishap. --->READ MORE HERE

After Young deferred once again to the review, Smith said: “So let me ask you this, can you commit that American dollars will never be used to fund such research going forward from this budget?” --->READ MORE HERE
