FBI Director Christopher A. Wray said publicly Tuesday that federal investigators believe the COVID-19 pandemic likely started from a lab leak in Wuhan, China.

“The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan,” Mr. Wray told Fox News in an interview. “Here you are talking about a potential leak from a Chinese government-controlled lab.”

He didn’t specify when the FBI determined that the deadly pandemic started in a Chinese lab. Democrats and the mainstream media for years have downplayed and even ridiculed Republicans for claiming that the Wuhan lab likely is the source of the outbreak that has killed more than 1.1 million Americans and 6.8 million worldwide.
