On the senator’s new COVID origins report:
“Tomorrow we’re going to release previously unknown information that builds on an investigation that happened last year. This was not included as part of it, so we want to make sure the public sees it….
“You start to see all sorts of internal communications within the Chinese government and researchers about the urgent need for biosecurity measures at both the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Wuhan Institute of Health. You begin to add a mountain of circumstantial evidence. No single piece by itself is determinative. But you put it all together. 
“[Add to that] the fact that the Chinese have not yet produced the animal that was the originator of this, they’ve yet to do that almost three years after [the fact], and I think that it becomes really compelling. You start to understand why some of our agencies, the Department of Energy and even the FBI, have said that they believe that this was a lab accident. I think tomorrow we’ll have something to contribute to that that I think further builds that case.”
On censorship of the lab leak theory early in the pandemic:
“[Fauci] had to have known that it was a real possibility [that COVID came from a lab], because they knew the kind of research that was going on over there. They knew the problems this place had. 
“[The censors] didn’t just deny [the possibility of a lab leak]. They smeared. They went out and actively and openly looked to smear and destroy any scientist and anyone who would dare raise that proposition. We need to remember that there was a time in the United States of America when if you went on Facebook or you went on Twitter and you said, ‘This was a lab accident,’ they would take down your post and potentially close your account, [for saying] something that today is at least a 50-50 proposition in the minds of almost any serious observer. All of that was fed by many in the scientific community, like Dr. Fauci.”
On the debt ceiling negotiations:
“Speaker McCarthy deserves a lot of credit and praise for holding not just the Republican conference together, but delivering a very reasonable product….
“This issue is very simple. There has to be a deal between the speaker of the House and the president of the United States, who spent the better part of three months saying he wouldn’t negotiate anything. Now they’re in these negotiations, playing a game of chicken with the U.S. economy.
“If there is a default, God forbid, and I don’t think we’ll have one, but if there is one, I think the blame will fall on the White House for refusing to talk to anybody about it and refusing to negotiate with Republicans. The answer here is for the speaker of the House and the president to reach a deal. That’s how all of these things have happened in the past. It’s Biden being late to the game and playing around with this that has brought us to this point.”
