Fox News has obtained a preview of Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe’s testimony ahead of his appearance before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic. —and he’s ready to say what we’ve known all along.

“My informed assessment, as a person with as much or more access than anyone to our government’s intelligence during the initial year of the virus outbreak and pandemic onset, has been and continues to be that a lab leak is the only explanation credibly supported by our intelligence, by science and by common sense,” Ratcliffe is expected to say on Tuesday.

From Fox News:

Ratcliffe will explain that if U.S. intelligence and evidence supporting a lab leak theory was placed “side-by-side with our intelligence and evidence pointing to a naturally occurring ‘spillover; theory, the lab leak side of the ledger would be long and overwhelming while the ‘spillover’ side would be nearly empty.”

Ratcliffe will point to China’s obstruction of investigations into the origins and will say China is “incapable of offering a single shred of exculpatory evidence.”

“The intelligence community’s sources for the information are numerous, diverse and unassailable,” Ratcliffe will say.

Ratcliffe is also expected to detail the “challenges” he and other Trump administration officials encountered, including “legitimate concerns about the closely-held sources of our intelligence and the sensitive methods used to obtain it, as well as illegitimate roadblocks related to professional conflicts of interest and partisan politics.”
