Joe Biden didn’t see this coming at all. It could be his undoing.
That’s why President Biden is terrified of what’s waiting for him at the White House.
The news that the Department of Energy had concluded that the COVID-19 virus very well could have leaked out of a lab from China was a bombshell to say the least, for Joe Biden and the Democrats.
Then the FBI Director, Christopher Wray, going on Fox News and saying that the evidence shows that it’s “likely” that the COVID-19 virus leaked out of a lab was the death blow for anyone who was still saying Trump was a conspiracy theorist for saying the virus came from China.

This has forced many to see the writing on the wall and acknowledge that something has to be done about this evidence so we can hold China accountable, if they are in fact responsible.
In response to all of this news, the U.S. Senate voted unanimously on a bill called the COVID Origins Act of 2023 that would require the Biden administration to share any and all information they have on the origins of COVID-19.
The bill was sponsored by U.S. Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Mike Braun (R-IND).
Then the bill was sent to the U.S. House where, again, it was voted unanimously to head to now head to Joe Biden’s desk for him to sign.
The final House tally was 419-0.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
The House on Friday voted 419 to 0 to pass a bill requiring the Biden administration to declassify intelligence related to potential links between the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China and the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Wall Street Journal article also notes that if Joe Biden chooses to sign the bill in to law, Biden’s Director of National Intelligence will need to declassify all the information pertinent to the bill within 90 days.
Though the bill does allow for them to make some redactions that they deem “necessary,” which is a little concerning.
What if they determine most of the information to be “necessarily” classified?
Republican U.S. Representative from Ohio, Michael Turner, said that he is certain that the information can be declassified without running into any nation security issues.
“This might be key to unraveling the truth,” Representative Turner said to the media. “I can assure you that the intelligence community could release this information while protecting their sources and methods of how it was collected.”
It’s unsure, though, if Joe Biden will sign the bill that was unanimously voted on in Congress with next to zero pushback from any legislators at all.
The Biden White House has indicated that they plan to stick to their guns on the narrative that the virus likely did not leak out of China, but they may not be able to keep up that facade for much longer.
The Democrats teaming up with Republicans on a Republican-sponsored bill says a lot about how much momentum this investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 virus has.
Joe Biden not signing that bill could be extremely politically damaging for himself and the Democrats.
