Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe asserted at a House hearing on Tuesday regarding the origins of the COVID pandemic that a laboratory leak is the sole explanation that is supported with credibility by our intelligence, scientific findings, and logical reasoning.

Ratcliffe told representatives “from a view inside, if our intelligence and evidence supporting a lab leak was placed side by side with our intelligence and evidence pointing to a natural origin or spillover theory, the lab leak side of the ledger would be long, convincing, and overwhelming. While the spillover side would be nearly empty.”

“Were this a trial, the preponderance of circumstantial evidence provided by our intelligence would compel a jury finding of guilt,” Ratcliffe stated.

WATCH:

During the same hearing, David Feith, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, mentioned that State Department officials were opposed to investigating U.S. funding for gain-of-function research associated with the outbreak, stating that it could potentially lead to unforeseeable consequences, adding that it could “open a Pandora’s box.”
