"SNIP.....

Washington (CNN)Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appears to be backing away from a theory he and President Donald Trump were pushing that the coronavirus pandemic may have originated at a lab in Wuhan, China.

Pompeo said in an interview with Breitbart that aired Saturday that "we know it began in Wuhan, but we don't know from where or from whom, and those are important things."

"We have repeatedly asked to have teams go in to assist them in identifying where the virus originated," the secretary said.

Pompeo has for weeks publicly espoused the theory that the virus that has infected more than 1,400,000 Americans originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, claiming in an interview earlier this month that there was "enormous evidence" and a "significant amount of evidence" this was the case. He later conceded that he couldn't be certain of its origin and that the evidence that it came from "the vicinity" of the Wuhan lab "could be wrong."

1. So, another mistruth/lie sprouted by our own US representatives. What a way to represent US

interests and show the best of what America has to offer, eh?

No wonder no one believes this administration in anything they do. Incompetent and corrupt to the core, and of course, showing the world the best that America has to offer (sarcasm).

2. Didn't the US already have CDC teams in China prior to Pompeo/Trump pulling them out?

I believe we started closing our research coordinated with China in 2019. Very suspicious.
