Rand Paul ‘Very Worried’ U.S. Funding Being Used For Chinese ‘Frankenstein Super-Virus’ Bioweapons

Rand Paul ‘Very Worried’ U.S. Funding Being Used For Chinese ‘Frankenstein Super-Virus’ Bioweapons


Speaking with Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro on Saturday, Sen. Rand Paul expressed concern that U.S. funding may still be used by the Chinese communist regime to research and develop biological weapons.

“I’m very worried that this stuff still goes on and that the U.S. government’s been funding it,” Paul told PirroSpeaking with Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro on Saturday, Sen. Rand Paul expressed concern that U.S. funding may still be used by the Chinese communist regime to research and develop biological weapons.

“I’m very worried that this stuff still goes on and that the U.S. government’s been funding it,” Paul told Pirro..

Last week, it was reported that the Biden State Department “ended an inquiry into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic that was investigating whether the virus stemmed from a leak out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” according to Fox News

On this subject, Pirro asked why the Biden administration would decide to “stop the investigation into the origins of the Wuhan virus,” especially given China’s efforts to prevent transparency regarding the initial outbreak and the virus’ origins.

“I think there’s been a sea-change in the last two or three weeks on this. A year ago, anybody who mentioned the possibility that this virus came out of the Wuhan lab were dismissed as crazy right-wing cooks, conspiracy theorists, etc,” Paul said. “But now you have even MSNBC coming around. You have the left starting to wonder about it. When I introduced my amendment to say we should quit funding this research in China, I ended up getting every Democrat on board.”

“So I think they either know information, or they suspect that this information is gonna get stronger and stronger, that this came from the lab,” Paul continued.

“We’ve got a lot of evidence point to this lab now,” Paul added, later.

Pirro then asked the Senator why “gain-of-function” research is even carried out.

“They say they’re doing it so that they can study these viruses that jump from animals to humans. The problem is that they are creating something that’s novel; they are creating something that doesn’t exist in nature,” Paul responded. “We’re creating Frankenstein super-viruses that, if they leak out of the lab, accidentally or on purpose, could devastate the world. The SARS virus is fifteen times more deadly. If that one gets out, and we enhance its ability to be transmitted, that could kill 50, 100 million people.”

“This shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Paul noted. “This should be debated.”
