Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has accused the CIA of secretly playing a role in the dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab where Covid originated.
According to Kennedy, “the CIA was involved” in the research at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology that caused the pandemic.
RFK Jr. made the allegations on national television during an interview with Fox News anchor Jesse Watters.
Kennedy suggested that Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration is not interested in punishing China for covering up the lab leak because it would expose National Institutes of Health-funded bioweapons programs.
“I think the CIA was involved certainly in this research,” Kennedy declared.
“They were funding it through USAID.
“And NIH, I think, in the end, gave about $26 million in funding to the Wuhan lab.
“But USAID, which was functioning as the CIA surrogate, gave over $64 million.
“The Pentagon also gave a lot of money.”

RFK Jr. also slammed Dr. Anthony Fauci, the subject of an entire book that he has written.
Kennedy, who is challenging Biden in the 2024 Democrat primary, pledged that he would prosecute Fauci if elected president.
“I think he caused a lot of injury,” Kennedy said of Fauci.
“I think that he particularly by withholding early treatment from Americans we racked up the highest death count in the world.
“We only have 4.2% of the globe’s population but we had 16% of the COVID deaths in this country and that was from bad policy.”
“There were countries that did the opposite of what we did that provided Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, other early treatments to their population, and had 1/200th of our death rate,” Kennedy continued.
Kennedy also stated that he believes that vaccines cause conditions that impact the health of Americans across the country.
“I do believe that autism comes from vaccines,” he asserted.
“But I think most of the things people believe about my opinions about vaccines are wrong.
“I, you know, all I have said about vaccines is we should have good science.”
“We should have the same kind of testing, placebo-controlled trials that we have for every other medication,” he added.
“Vaccines are exempt from pre-licensing placebo-controlled trials.
“There’s no way that anybody can tell the risk profile of those products or even the relative benefits of those products before they’re mandated, and we should have that kind of testing.”
