GOP Senator Says The ‘Smoking Gun’ For COVID Lab Leak Was ‘Destroyed’

Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) is speaking out about a recently released report from Senate Republicans about the origins of the coronavirus — revealing that communist China “destroyed” evidence that the virus leaked from their lab in Wuhan.

During a Tuesday interview on Fox News Radio’s “Guy Benson Show,” the Republican senator argued that the Chinese Communist Party destroyed the “smoking guns” that would have confirmed that the pandemic was their fault — stating that China had done so by removing information from databases and removed the “true father” of COVID.

“There is simply a preponderance of evidence that shows that this virus leaked — an accidental leak from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, and there [were] probably two leaks,” Marshall said. “The epidemiology points that way. All the intelligence from those folks points this way as well.”

He then asserted that there is “no one in the world that can doubt that the Wuhan labs had the ability to make this virus.”

Marshall went on to point out that viruses that originate naturally always leave a trail, but there is no such trail for COVID. This fact directly proves that claims from China about the coronavirus emerging naturally — claims that the American left and their allies in the mainstream media pushed nonstop over the past few years — were false.

“You can’t find a cousin. You can’t find a grandfather, anything to COVID,” Marshall said. “And that’s because it was made in a laboratory and the true cousin, the true father of COVID-19 is that DNA lab bank…that is absolutely one of the smoking guns, one of the witnesses that this gain-of-function mafia destroyed.”

The Republican senator also spoke about the issue during an appearance on ABC News.

The federal government has finally come around to the notion that COVID came from a lab, after insisting for several years that the virus was natural.

According to a February report from the Wall Street Journal, “The new report highlights how different parts of the intelligence community have arrived at disparate judgments about the pandemic’s origin. The Energy Department now joins the Federal Bureau of Investigation in saying the virus likely spread via a mishap at a Chinese laboratory. Four other agencies, along with a national intelligence panel, still judge that it was likely the result of a natural transmission, and two are undecided.”
