If we define the term "lied" as "somebody said something that I personally disagreed with because they didn't disclose additional information that I wanted to talk about but they didn't want to talk about", then... well... isn't this 1984 style Orwellian redefinition of words?
Is a conservative "lying" ever single time he/she/they mentions gun rights without discussing suicides by gun or mass shootings?
Is a liberal "lying" every single time he/she/they mentions abortion without discussing people who regret their abortions?
Is a moderate "lying" every time he/she/they mentions tax reform without going into depth as to how all of the modern Western powers levy taxes distinctive from the U.S.?
One can go on.
As for "the origin of COVID-19 and the safety of future virology research", that's not relevant in the slightest, to be honest, in political terms. Trump era conservatives genuinely don't care about preventing future epidemics at all. All that they care about is making sure that the "right people" are blamed for the causation of such epidemics when they happen as well as that the "right people" suffer during them. That's what's relevant.
I suspect that just like how the coronavirus, through conservatives' eyes, was the fault of ethnic Chinese peoples and their apologists as well as elites who put pro-Chinese political correctness ahead of good American values... so too will the next crisis be the fault of, say, the Jews. Or transgender people. Or Arabs. Whatever conservative eyes see.
Of course, for those who aren't conservatives, preventing the next pandemic would be nice in terms of future reforms. We can't really do that, though. State governments are controlled by conservatives across the nation, and they've also got enough power in Congress to stifle all kinds of pro-health measures. We're at an impasse right now unless they lose more power.
