The American people have long known about it. It’s been an open “secret” in Washington, D.C. and state capitols for years. Donald Trump came to power in the 2016 Presidential election partly by promising to end the influence of this secret.
What am I talking about? The Deep State. You know, the huge number of unelected government bureaucrats who take our tax money, both for their paychecks and to do their “work,” who use their positions within the government to push their personal political viewpoints and policies. Or, some would argue, to push the policies of foreign governments that they sympathize with.
Leftist politicians and the mainstream media have downplayed any influence of the Deep State on the running of the Federal government, but a former head of the CIA and Secretary of State under President Donald Trump would argue otherwise, and, considering those positions of governmental leadership, he would know, wouldn’t he? Mark Tapscott writes,
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed to The Epoch Times on June 3 that his efforts to get to the bottom of how the CCP virus—also known as the novel coronavirus—spread from China to the United States met with sustained opposition within the U.S. government.\
Asked about revelations in a June 3 Vanity Fair report that key officials deep within the State Department sought to keep the public from knowing that U.S. funds had supported gain-of-function research at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), Pompeo described a “contentious battle.”
That research, which focused on techniques for reconfiguring naturally occurring viruses to make them more virulent and transmissible to humans, was partially funded as far back as 2012 with U.S. tax dollars through the National Institutes of Health and a nonprofit foundation known as the EcoHealth Alliance.
The Vanity Fair analysis “found that conflicts of interest, stemming in part from large government grants supporting controversial virology research, hampered the U.S. investigation into COVID-19’s origin at every step.”
“In one State Department meeting, officials seeking to demand transparency from the Chinese government say they were explicitly told by colleagues not to explore the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s gain-of-function research, because it would bring unwelcome attention to U.S. government funding of it,” the article reads.
So, members of the Deep State in Washington tried to keep those in leadership in government and, also, the American people from getting to the bottom of how the CoVid-19 virus originated.
You have to ask yourself, if they tried to hide that information, what else are they hiding from us? That sounds suspiciously like a conspiracy in Washington against the American people.
