A new study purporting to show that covid-19 was manufactured in a Chinese lab was published by a pair of nonprofit groups tied to Steve Bannon, the former top Trump strategist now facing felony fraud charges. The study, co-authored by Chinese virologists who fled Hong Kong this year, claims that, quote, laboratory manipulation is part of the history of the virus.
Its findings were quickly picked up by a handful of prominent news organizations, such as The New York Post, which hyped the wild allegations that run counter to virtually all existing science on the source of the virus. The study is the work of the Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation sister nonprofit organizations that Bannon was instrumental in creating, according to documents posted on the society's website last year. He served as that group's chair. A search of Google Scholar and the Rule of Law, Society and Rule of Law Foundation websites indicates that the organizations have absolutely no history of publishing, scientific or medical research.

The woman, referred to as Jane Doe, also claimed Epstein introduced her to Donald Trump at Mar a Lago, where he allegedly asked the future president, quote, This is a good one, right? But on Monday, a federal judge put those lawsuit on hold pending the resolution of Maxwells criminal trial scheduled for July 20 21, Maxwell, who is a defendant in the suit, is facing a slew of charges related to Epstein's underage sex ring.
The U.S. district judge overseeing Docx case ruled that those litigation would result in, quote, undue prejudice for the British socialite. Doe's lawsuit did not personally accuse Trump of any kind of misconduct.

Help us soar if we're supposed to share the mentality of the president speaking at a town hall event hosted by ABC News on Tuesday night, President Trump said he had no regrets about his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and doubled down on his claim that the virus will just, quote, go away.
Even if it does not just disappear, he said, then what he mistakenly called, quote, herd mentality will take over and save us all from harm. He apparently confused his wording of, quote, herd mentality for the concept of herd immunity, which occurs when a large enough proportion of the population has built up immunity to an infectious disease, often through vaccination. The president insisted the country will recover from the pandemic even without a vaccine. Repeating that it will just take time.
