During the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020/21, former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has waxed eloquent about suspicions by former President Trump that the Wuhan Institute of Virology had precipitated the pandemic, calling such claims racist.
But in 2009, the same Hillary Clinton allegedly warned in a State Department cable that was obtained by WikiLeaks that the work done at the Wuhan Institute of Virology could lead to “biological weapons proliferation concern.”
Now these are Hillary Clinton’s words, not ours. She KNEW the the laboratory in Wuhan was working on viruses as bioweapons, yet conveniently forgot that so she could paint Trump as a racist.
In the email Clinton wrote “We believe it is important to focus on emerging chemical and biological technologies, trends in the trade of CBW-related goods and threats.” (Chemical and Biological Weapons = CBW)
Referring to France, she stated, “The U.S. believes participants would benefit from hearing about your experiences assisting China in setting up a Biosafety Level-4 (BSL-4) laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology from the export control and intangible technology transfer perspectives. We are particularly interested to know how China plans to vet incoming foreign researchers from countries of biological weapons proliferation concern.”
She continued, “The U.S. believes AG members would be interested in any information you can share related to China and North Korea, specifically information related to:
- China’s Institutes of Biological Products (locations in Beijing and Wuhan), to include overhead imagery analysis, if possible.
- Your perceptions of the CBW proliferation activities by Chinese entities.
- Your perceptions of Chinese government efforts to enforce its export control rules.”
When President Trump, in March 2020, used the term “Chinese virus” to describe COVID-19, Clinton retorted that Trump was a racist and was using “racist rhetoric.”
She went on Twitter again and tweeted, “The president is turning to racist rhetoric to distract from his failures to take the coronavirus seriously early on, make tests widely available, and adequately prepare the country for a period of crisis. Don’t fall for it. Don’t let your friends and family fall for it.”
Truth be told, she basically facilitated the deaths of over 600,000 Americans rather than to be intellectually honest and agree with Trump. She was the first one to warn the world about Wuhan, China, but she forgot?
So was Hillary Clinton lying then or is she lying now?
