Rep. Mike Gallagher, the Wisconsin Republican who chairs a House subcommittee on China, said Sunday that the FBI and initially the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention refused to investigate a secret biolab connected to the Chinese Communist Party in California. ...The inspector called the FBI, but was unsuccessful at bringing attention to the issue, Gallagher said. "They called the FBI. The FBI said, well, we can’t investigate because there’s no ties to WMD [weapons of mass destruction], which is absurd, they called the CDC. The CDC hung up on them initially. And it wasn’t until the local congressman got on the case that the CDC was forced to send a team to investigate. And that wasn’t until many, many months later," Gallagher said Sunday. ...Some of the more concerning finds in the lab included a freezer labeled "Ebola," a rare, but often fatal illness.
