House Republicans hold hearing on COVID origins — with no Democrats or Fauci:
House Republicans pressed forward with their quest to investigate the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic by hosting their own hearing Tuesday — without Democrats or the ability to subpoena Dr. Anthony Fauci.
The fact-finding event, which took place in the Capitol Visitors Center as opposed to a traditional hearing room, was led by House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who also serves as ranking member of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis.
The group of GOP lawmakers moved forward with the unusually informal panel after growing tired of House Democrats’ refusal to schedule an official hearing on the issue of the virus’ origins.
“We have asked that question for more than a year and requested that the House majority hold hearings to investigate the origins of COVID. Perplexingly, Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi [(D-Calif.)] has refused to allow a single hearing — calling it a ‘diversion,'” Scalise said in his opening statement. “As the American people will hear today from our expert witnesses, this is far from a diversion.” --->READ MORE HERE

House Democrats fail to investigate virus origin:
Senior House Republicans this week held a meeting on identifying the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic, criticizing congressional Democrats for failing to pursue the matter.
Several Republican leaders, along with many virus experts, say the latest information and intelligence indicate the virus behind the pandemic most likely began with a research mishap at a Chinese laboratory.
“There is mounting scientific evidence that COVID-19 originated from the [Wuhan Institute of Virology] in Wuhan, China and gain-of-function research was used to make the virus more infectious,” Republican members of a House select subcommittee on the coronavirus crisis said in a statement.
A review of the subcommittee’s hearings and press statements reveals that none was devoted to the topic of identifying the origin point of the pandemic. Instead, most hearings and releases sought to criticize the Trump administration for its handling of the crisis, and many related to financial fraud in pandemic relief funds or reports of racial and ethnic disparities in the distribution of coronavirus vaccines. --->READ MORE HERE
