On Thursday, the House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party released a long-awaited report on the illegal biological laboratory in California run by a fugitive Chinese national.
Congressional investigators allege that the man who set up the laboratory had significant connections to the Chinese Communist Party apparatus and he ran an illegal laboratory that housed approximately 20 types of infectious disease samples and sold COVID-19 tests without a proper permit.
The same week, President Joe Biden held a meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping where the two world leaders discussed the U.S.-China bilateral relationship. During the summit, the the United States and China agreed to resume military to military contacts, partner in countering the fentanyl trade, and inked a new climate statement.
Despite the newfound spirit of cooperation, it appears that neither President Biden nor U.S. representatives brought up the clandestine biolab which operated on American soil unnoticed for years, posing health risks to the community of Reedley, California and taking American COVID-19 relief money to fund its operations.
