Did COVID-19 leak out of a Chinese lab? China has long tried to paint that as a false theory and it was once dismissed by many US health officials, including former White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci. Now, just a week after FBI Director Christopher Wray said the theory was “likely,” House Republicans will be holding their first hearing today investigating the pandemic’s origins. A Democrat who will take part in the hearing, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-06), joins the Rundown to discuss why she hopes politics are kept out of the probe, whether Dr. Fauci should testify, and why we can’t let recent threats from China dissuade us from getting to the truth.

Last week, four Americans who traveled to Matamoros, Mexico, were shot and abducted, and now the State Department can confirm two of those Americans are home safe on US soil, yet the other two were killed in the attack. This violence, suspected to be the work of Mexico’s cartels, has sparked outrage from US political leaders on the right, like Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who is now pushing for legislation to designate Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations. Former US Ambassador to Mexico Chris Landau joins the podcast to explain how cartel violence has made Mexico a dangerous travel destination, and he breaks down why designating these cartels as terrorist organizations could create more complications than solutions.
