WASHINGTON – Today, House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) released the following statement on the Biden Administration’s inconclusive COVID origins report:

“The Biden Administration’s failure to reach a definitive conclusion on the origins of COVID-19 underscores the need for an immediate congressionally-led investigation. Oversight Republicans have repeatedly called on Democrats to join our efforts, but they’ve refused. The Chinese Communist Party has spent almost two years misleading the world, spreading propaganda, and intentionally concealing the severity of COVID-19. Failing to hold the CCP accountable for a virus that has taken the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans would be a stain on this institution. It’s past time for Democrats to join us in holding China accountable for their ongoing efforts to hide the truth.”
