Sen. Ron Johnson Demands HHS Explain Why Dozens of Documents on COVID-19 Origins Have ‘heavy redactions’; Senator Ron Johnson Grills Secretary Xavier Becerra Over COVID-19 Documents, and other C-Virus related stories

Sen. Ron Johnson demands HHS explain why dozens of documents on COVID-19 origins have ‘heavy redactions’:
Sen. Ron Johnson has called on the Department of Health and Human Services to explain why dozens of pages of material on the origins of COVID-19 are “still hidden under HHS’s heavy redactions.”
Johnson (R-Wis.) previously demanded those files back in 2021 as part of a tranche of documents on the global pandemic.
He is following up on the request after a testy hearing with HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra last week.
“It is well past time for HHS to meet its legal obligation and produce, without redactions, the approximately 50 pages of priority records my office identified in 2021. You previously testified that I am ‘absolutely entitled’ to that information,” Johnson wrote in a Friday letter to Becerra.
The Wisconsin Republican demanded the material by the week of April 8, and he is seeking a phone call or meeting with Becerra by that same time to discuss HHS’ compliance with the 2021 request.
This past Thursday, Johnson pressed Becerra about why the department hadn’t furnished the outstanding documents during a Senate Finance Committee hearing.
“It is an accommodation process where we try to make sure that we fulfill the request as best we can without undermining national security, confidentiality,” Becerra explained at the time. --->READ MORE HERE
