‘Bluffing’: China demands ‘enormous evidence’ Pompeo cited regarding Covid-19 origin

RT | May 4, 2020

China has responded to Pompeo’s claim that he has evidence that the novel coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab, saying that his claims were a “bluff,” as the war of words continues to escalate between Washington and Beijing.

The Global Times newspaper – an outlet owned by the Chinese Communist Party – published an editorial dismissing Pompeo’s claims as “groundless accusations.”

This comes in response to claims made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in an interview with ABC that he has “enormous evidence” proving that the novel coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab.

The theory that the virus came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) has been repeatedly promoted by the US administration. President Donald Trump also claimed earlier that he is confident the virus originated there, in an ongoing exchange of accusations between the two countries.

The editorial published by the Global Times called on Pompeo to publicly reveal his evidence – if it really exists – and that failure to do so would prove that he was “bluffing” all along.

“What was originally a scientific question, has been transformed into a vicious attack fueled by politics, intelligence, and diplomacy,” the editorial claims. It also accused the Trump administration of conducting “unprecedented propaganda warfare” against China in order to divert away attention from its own “incompetence” in handling the Covid-19 outbreak domestically.

  2. China’s demand for evidence to back up Mr. Pompeo’s accusation seems perfectly logical.

  3. How can the USA continue to have Mike Pompeo as “Secretary of State” when he himself has admitted to being a liar(when he was CIA Director), “We lied, we cheated, we stole”.
    By his own words he is totally untrustworthy, Credibility ZERO. The USA Government doesn’t even try to appear to be ‘honest and reliable’ any more. I imagine it wont be long before John Bolton comes back through “The Revolving Door” into a position of great power.
    That’s how the system works in the American Government.

    And, meanwhile, The American people remain abandoned, by the criminals who run the country.
