Whistleblowers can play a vital role in helping the Energy and Commerce Committee, Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee conduct its constitutionally mandated public health oversight responsibilities by reporting tips related to our investigation into the COVID-19 origin.

The right for public employees to communicate with Congress is established in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Various U.S. laws prohibit retaliation for providing information to Congress, including 5 U.S. Code § 2302 (Prohibited Personnel Practices) for many Executive Branch employees, and numerous private-sector whistleblower protections.  However, individuals still take serious risks when they make allegations of wrongdoing.

To better protect your communications, do not contact us using work resources or while you are working. Further, consider consulting an attorney experienced in representing whistleblowers before you make a disclosure.

If you wish to report misconduct, you may fill out the form below, contact us by telephone (202) 225-3641, or email ECGOP.COVID19Origins.Tips@mail.house.gov.

Do not submit classified information or other information barred from release through this form or by email.

We respect your confidentiality, and we will use your contact information only to follow up with you regarding your submission.
