Washington, D.C. – After years of denial, the mainstream media admits we were right. We were right about Hunter Biden’s laptop, Big Tech censorship, and school shutdowns.
Now, you can add the CCP lab leak theory to the list of scandals that we were right about, but the mainstream media will never apologize for discrediting as conspiracy theories.
According to a Wall Street Journal report on Sunday, the U.S. Department of Energy has concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic most likely arose from a laboratory leak in Wuhan, China – something my colleagues and I warned of early on in the pandemic.
Investigations and action are long overdue to ensure the CCP is unable to wreak havoc on the world again, and a good place to start is with the implementation of legislation I cosponsored to place a moratorium on all federal research grants involving risky gain-of-function research on potential pandemic pathogens.

It was such a joy to welcome so many Tennesseans to Washington this week. On Tuesday, Senator Hagerty and I joined a full house at our weekly constituent breakfast, and later on, I met Zion Christian Academy’s 8th grade class on the steps of the Senate for a quick American government lesson. On Wednesday, Senator Hagerty and I met with the TN Credit Unions to hear about the work they are doing to serve their local communities. Join us the next time you’re in Washington!
