Suspicions Arise That Wuhan Labs Double-Billed U.S. Government for Research

Suspicions have arisen that the U.S. government may have paid tens of millions of dollars in superfluous payments to labs in Wuhan, China.

The payments were ostensibly made through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), CBS News reports.

“What I’ve found so far is evidence that points to double billing, potential theft of government funds. It is concerning, especially since it involves dangerous pathogens and risky research,” former federal investigator Diane Cutler, who examined 50,000 documents including U.S. government grants for high risk research in China.

Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS), who hired Cutler to investigate, wants to crerate a 9/11 type commission to ascertain what actually happened. “I think there’s 1.1 million reasons that American taxpayers should care,” he said. “You’ll have a plane [crash]. We want to find out why the plane crashes. We go to any lengths to do that. And the hope is we don’t have another plane crash for the same reason.”
