Rep. Jackson Appointed to the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic

WASHINGTON — Yesterday, Representative Ronny Jackson (TX-13) was appointed by Speaker McCarthy to the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic. The Subcommittee’s objective is to investigate the large volume of evidence that the virus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) and that it did not occur naturally. The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic is determined to discover the truth and deliver transparency to the American people. 

Jackson said: “I am honored to accept my appointment to the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic. Revealing the truth behind the origin of the Coronavirus has been a top priority of mine since evidence first suggested that the virus was leaked from a Chinese lab. Democrats spent years refusing to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for its role in causing a global pandemic. Over one million Americans have now perished, and millions of families are still recovering from the unhinged lockdowns. We can no longer ignore the mounting evidence suggesting the virus was leaked by the Chinese Communist Party. Furthermore, this lab received millions of dollars of taxpayer funding from Fauci’s National Institutes of Health for gain-of-function research. The blood of millions of Americans is on Fauci’s hands and he refuses to admit it. Together, with my colleagues in Congress, we will uncover the truth behind the origins of Covid. I promise you this: Fauci and those responsible for propagating the lies will be held accountable.”

Speaker McCarthy said: “As part of our Commitment to America, House Republicans promised we would investigate the Covid origins and provide oversight on the trillions of taxpayer dollars spent on the pandemic response. The newly-established Select Committee on the Coronavirus will help deliver these important answers to the public. To advance the work of this committee, we need dedicated members who will work to follow every lead to find the truth. I am proud to appoint Ronny Jackson to this committee. He is a focused member who will draw on his 25 years of military service and medical expertise to carry out the mission of the committee to provide transparency and accountability.”
