Senator Tom Cotton Repeats Fringe Theory of Coronavirus Origins

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

I WanNa read you a headline from the Washington Post out this morning Tom Cotton. That's the senator from Arkansas. Tom Cotton keeps repeating a corona virus conspiracy theory that was already debunked Senator Tom. Cotton repeated a fringe theory suggesting that the ongoing spread of a corona virus is connected to research into disease ravaged epicenter of China. Cotton referenced a laboratory in the city. The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory in an interview on Fox News Sunday morning futures. He said the lab was near a market. Some scientists initially thought was a starting point for the viruses spread. We don't know where it originated and we have to get to the bottom of that. We also know that just a few miles away from that. Food Market is China's only biosafety level four Super Laboratory that researches infectious diseases yet cotton acknowledged. There's no evidence of the disease originated at the lab instead he suggested it's necessary to ask Chinese authorities about the possibility. No we don't have evidence. The disease originated there but because of China's duplicity and dishonesty from the beginning we need to at least ask the question to see what the evidence says. China right now is not giving us any evidence. Cotton is referring to a well-known lab in Wuhan a Cellular Level Biosafety Level Four facility with a high level of operational security that works on researching dangerous pathogens in response to cotton's remarks as well as in previous interview with the Washington Post. Numerous experts dismissed the possibility. There's absolutely nothing in the genome sequence of this virus that indicates the virus which engineered said a professor at Rutgers Vivid Narang Associate Professor at. Mit says it's highly unlikely. The general population was exposed. It's a skipping logic to say it's a bio weapon that the Chinese deployed intentionally deployed or even unintentionally deployed. That's not what cotton say. The British publication. The Daily Mail was one of the first to suggest a connection between the corona virus and the laboratory wad later. The Washington Times ran a story into that virus may have originated in lab. The Chinese ambassador has rejected the idea. It's true a lot is still unknown. But it's very harmful. It's dangerous to stir up suspicion. So let's review the headline is Tom. Cotton KEEPS REPEATING CORONA virus conspiracy theory. That was already debunked. Can anybody tell me who in this debunked it a professor at? Mit says it's highly unlikely. A professor at Rutgers says the possibility that it was deliberately released can be firmly excluded and the Chinese ambassador himself says there are still a lot of unknowns so who debunked who to bunk. Tom Cotton can anybody tell me in the story from the Washington Post? Who DEBUNK Tom Cotton? Because I'm not seeing that anybody has debunked Tom Cotton Maria. The situation
