China Abuses US Diplomats

“Is this just an opportunity for China to mess with our diplomatic personnel by shaming them or embarrassing them?”

Judicial Watch is front and center in the effort to hold the Biden administration accountable throughout the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Last year, Judicial Watch sued the administration for information on the  Chinese government’s reported abuse of U.S. diplomatic personnel. Specifically, Judicial Watch sought documents on the Chinese government’s use of anal swabs COVID-19 tests on U.S. diplomats. As Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton states, “is [the use of anal swab testing] just an opportunity for China to mess with our diplomatic personnel by shaming them or embarrassing them?”

This lawsuit forced the release of documents from the State Department that reveal, as Fitton notes, there were concerns in the U.S. Embassy in Beijing about what was going on:

As Fitton comments in the Judicial Watch Weekly Update: it’s disturbing that the Biden administration didn’t seem to do anything about this publicly… Our diplomats were harassed with no pushback…when you realize … that China was … playing games with the United States and international investigators … [and] were targeting their own people to make sure they wouldn’t talk, this is a big issue.”

“Our diplomatic personnel were harassed in a reprehensible way by the Chinese government, and the Biden administration seems to have done little in response – except to cover it up,” Fitton said.

The Biden administration’s “cover up,” Fitton contends, is broadly related to a cover-up of the gain-of-function research carried out by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) prior to the virus’ outbreak. In fact, “as Judicial Watch has uncovered, China was engaged in gain-of-function research thanks to the ‘good offices’ of people like Anthony Fauci and other government agencies who funded it,” Fitton states. “They were very nervous that gain-of-function research resulted in the emergence of COVID.”
