Bannon: Wuhan Lab Employees Have Defected, Now Working with FBI
President Trump’s former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon claims that the Western world is actively building a case against Beijing in an attempt to prove that the coronavirus was “leaked from a Wuhan virus lab.”
In March a Chinese official spun a tale that the US military brought the coronavirus to China and President Donald promoted, without evidence, the theory that a virology lab in Wuhan accidentally released the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
“I think that they [spy agencies] have electronic intelligence, and that they have done a full inventory of who has provided access to that lab. I think they have very compelling evidence. And there have also been defectors,” Bannon said.
“People around these labs have been leaving China and Hong Kong since mid-February. [US intelligence] along with MI5 and MI6 are trying to build a very thorough legal case, which may take a long time. It’s not like James Bond,” he continued.
Should Bannon’s claim prove true, we can expect tensions to go to all new heights as it seems the US will take soon take this evidence to the world to hold the communist nation accountable. Mover to the next page for details.
One day after a respected Chinese virologist reportedly fled Hong Kong to blow the whistle on Beijing’s COVID cover-up, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon suggested that scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology defected to the West and are “turning over evidence” implicating the Chinese Communist Party in helping cause the pandemic that’s killed over 560,000 people worldwide.
Bannon also claims there is a ‘massive whistleblower campaign’ going on within China.
He claimed: ‘They are not talking to the media yet, but there are people out of the Wuhan lab and other labs that have come to the West and are turning over evidence of the culpability of the Chinese Communist Party. I think people are going to be shocked’.
Mr Bannon, who sat on the US National Security Council during his time in the White House, says spies are trying to assemble a case that the virus spread as the result of an accident involving experiments to develop vaccines and therapeutic drugs to deal with Sars-style viruses.
Speaking to this newspaper from a yacht off the East coast of America, Mr Bannon said that defectors were talking to the intelligence agencies in America, Europe and the UK.
He said: ‘I think that they [spy agencies] have electronic intelligence, and that they have done a full inventory of who has provided access to that lab. I think they have very compelling evidence. And there have also been defectors.
‘People around these labs have been leaving China and Hong Kong since mid-February. [US intelligence] along with MI5 and MI6 are trying to build a very thorough legal case, which may take a long time. It’s not like James Bond.’
Mr Bannon even suggested that the French government, which helped to build the institute, had left behind monitoring systems after Beijing shut them out of the project before it opened in 2017.
He said: ‘The thing was built with French help, so don’t think that there aren’t some monitoring devices in there. I think what you are going to find out is that these guys were doing experiments which they weren’t fully authorised [for] or knew what they were doing and that somehow, either through an inadvertent mistake, or on a lab technician, one of these things got out.
‘It’s not that hard for these viruses to get out. That is why these labs are so dangerous.
‘You essentially had a biological Chernobyl in Wuhan, but the centre of gravity, the Ground Zero, was round the Wuhan lab, in terms of the casualty rates. And like Chernobyl, you also had the cover-up – the state apparatus reports to itself and just protects itself.’
