WASHINGTON, D.C.- Today, Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01) introduced the “The World Deserves to Know Act” alongside House Republican Conference Chair Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (NY-21).
The World Deserves to Know Act:
“We cannot allow China to impede a free and fair investigation into the origins of COVID-19,” said Wittman. “Nor can we tolerate China’s suppression of information which could prove critically important to preventing future pandemics. The sanctions imposed by the World Deserves to Know Act pave the way to uncover the truth about COVID-19’s origins.”“As the leader of the free world, the United States must hold Chinese Communist Party officials accountable for their unconscionable actions,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “In addition to intellectual property theft, the Chinese Communist Party is engaged in the genocide of their own minority Uyghur population, the ongoing repression in Hong Kong, and blatant coverup of the origin of COVID-19 - which has led to an economic crisis and loss of human life across the globe, including the loss of nearly 600,000 Americans. A thorough, unimpeded investigation is necessary to determine the extent of their actions and prevent the Chinese Communist Party from financially benefitting, in any form, especially at the expense of the American people."
Congressman Rob Wittman represents the First District of Virginia. He serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Armed Services Committee, where he serves as the ranking member of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee.
