In the wake of the Energy Department report that reportedly says the most likely origin of the COVID-19 pandemic was a Chinese lab leak, Republican Senators, including Rand Paul and Mike Braun, are now calling on the Biden administration to declassify materials related to the virus origins. Dustin Carmack, chief of staff to former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, tells NTD a disadvantage of declassifying this information is that it may jeopardize intelligence sources from China that are very hard to get. However, Carmack says there may be ways to mitigate those risks by scrubbing the sources and methods from the report to allow more information to reach the public.
