A major virologist claims to have found "smoking gun" evidence that COVID was created in a you-know-what

We've known for quite some time now that the COVID-19 lab leak "theory" is pretty, y'know, compelling:

But these kinds of findings from a major U.S. virologist is even more so:

COVID-19 may have been created in a Chinese lab, a British professor told the UN Wednesday, with another expert claiming that evidence of the likelihood has reached 'the level of a smoking gun.'

Richard H. Ebright, a molecular biologist at Rutgers University, was quoted saying in a new Wall Street Journal article that the virus that killed millions around the world may actually have been manmade in China's Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Ebright has been at the forefront of the lab-leak debate for years now. He's taken major beatings from his colleagues over his dogged insistence that the virus was generated in a lab. He's stuck with it. Good for him.

The documents in question emerged from the Wuhan Institute of Virology; the papers "contained drafts and notes regarding a grant proposal called Project DEFUSE, which sought to test engineering bat coronaviruses in a way that would make them more easily transmissible to humans."

The proposal "was ultimately rejected and denied funding by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency." But the emergence of the documents in the Wuhan lab โ€” the epicenter of the lab-leak theory, located just a few miles from the first known outbreak of COVID-19 โ€” suggests a strong correlation:

Viruses made according to the DEFUSE protocol could have been available by the time Covid-19 broke out, sometime between August and November 2019 ... This would account for the otherwise unexplained timing of the pandemic along with its place of origin.

The ease with which the virus infected humans when it first emerged, meanwhile, was also a sign of its laboratory origin; unsurprisingly, the DEFUSE protocol stipulated the creation of "appropriate human-specific cleavage sites," which is another way of saying that they wanted to make the virus more easily transmissible to human beings.

So, in short: A rejected U.S. virology experiment could have been under development in Wuhan as early as 2018, leading to a possible lab leak at the shoddy Wuhan virology facilities sometime in mid-2019 or so, leading to the pandemic timeline with which we're all familiar.

Because I do!
