Owens Urges Pelosi to Investigate True Origins of COVID-19

Jun 02, 2021

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Burgess Owens (UT-04) and over 200 Republican lawmakers recently sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urging her to hold the Chinese Communist Party (CPP) accountable for its role in causing the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the letter, members write: “It is clear the WHO failed to produce the final word on the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic and the CCP’s liability. That task falls to us in Congress. House Republicans have consistently called on you to uncover this truth. It is time you join this battle. We hope House Democrats will abandon their partisan agenda and join House Republicans’ investigation into the origins of COVID-19.”
