Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group, has filed a lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) over its handling of the COVID-19, also called the Chinese Communist Party or CCP virus outbreak. The oversight group has filed a new Freedom of Information Act lawsuit asking that the HHS produce correspondence from NIH Director Francis Collins about gain-of-function research, the Wuhan facility, and hydroxychloroquine.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton claims that the Department of Health and Human Services was not forthcoming regarding the NIH’s support of bat virus research in Wuhan. Judicial Watch is also looking for information related to HHS evaluations of hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 therapy. According to OAN, the group claims that the HHS may have lied about the CCP virus for political motives.

​​Judicial Watch is also investigating alleged “collusion” between The Gates Foundation and China in selling Chinese-made drugs around the world.

“On the approach for leveraging China’s resources to help others, Gates Foundation is working with Chinese government on donations to its neighboring countries and African countries such as anti-malaria medications,” Fitton stated. “…More specially, it helps Chinese companies to gain prequalification of medications, so that Chinese company manufactured drugs can be sold outside of China.”

The monitoring group asserted that the U.S. and China are working together to adopt outrageous health policies, accusing the Gates Foundation of operating as a foreign agent for China.
