      WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden ordered U.S. intelligence officials to “redouble” their efforts to investigate the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, including any possibility the trail might lead to a Chinese laboratory.

      After months of minimizing that possibility as a fringe theory, the Biden administration is joining worldwide pressure for China to be more open about the outbreak, aiming to head off GOP complaints the president has not been tough enough as well as to use the opportunity to press China on alleged obstruction.

      Biden on Wednesday asked U.S. intelligence agencies to report back within 90 days. The Democrat directed U.S. national laboratories to assist with the investigation and the intelligence community to prepare a list of specific queries for the Chinese government. He called on China to cooperate with international probes into the origins of the pandemic.

      Republicans, including former President Donald Trump, have promoted the theory that the virus emerged from a laboratory accident rather than naturally through human contact with an infected animal in Wuhan, China.

      Huh. There appears to be some there there.

      It’s almost like Mr. No Fundamental Change is a bit worried about this.

      Utterly totally predictable and par for the course with the CIA DNC.

        Since this happened after some hard evidence supporting the lab-leak theory did really manifest. A few weeks ago there wasn’t any of that. Now there is. Doesn’t mean that’s what happened, but it’s possible it really did, and that the CIA had absolutely nothing to do with it.
