President Donald Trump and his team are dealing with a global pandemic that has brought the U.S. economy to a grinding halt.
But apparently, Democrats see are an opportunity to go after the president during this crisis.
The country continues to reel from the pandemic. Millions of Americans are suffering — both medically and financially.
What is California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff doing? Putting together a new investigation with some of his top liberal allies.
Schiff teamed up with California Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris to create a bipartisan 9/11-style commission to probe the federal government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S.
They will likely be demanding countless documents from the White House and other government agencies to help them keep their witch hunt alive.
The commission is modeled after the 9/11 Commission, which was formed in the wake of the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.
“It is clear that a comprehensive and authoritative review will be required, not as a political exercise to cast blame, but to learn from our mistakes to prevent history from tragically repeating itself,” Schiff said in a statement Friday. “Over the last week, I’ve talked with my colleagues, former commissioners, and experts, and incorporated a number of their strong recommendations into this legislation, and will continue working with other Members interested in this critical issue to come to a consensus in the coming weeks and months.”
Schiff first floated his plans to introduce a commission last month. Last week, Schiff announced that the commission would have the power to “compel cooperation by relevant witnesses.”
“The coronavirus showed just how unprepared and slow we were to respond to a major outbreak. And that lack of readiness endangered lives,” Feinstein said in a statement Friday. “We weren’t able to ramp up testing, we didn’t have enough safety equipment for doctors and nurses and we lacked any kind of consistent federal guidelines for states and cities. We know this won’t be the last outbreak, so a 9/11 Commission-style panel is necessary to fix these mistakes going forward and apply the lessons from this pandemic to future crises.”
“The federal government was unprepared to confront the coronavirus pandemic and economic crisis, let alone both at the same time,” Harris said Friday. “The commission needs to take a holistic approach to oversight, and cannot leave out an analysis of the disturbing disparity in prevention and health outcomes in the Black community.”
Consider what is happening here.
While Trump and his administration are working to re-open American amid the coronavirus pandemic, Schiff and his Democratic allies are already launching another bogus investigation.
Put another way: Schiff seems to be setting the stage for Democrats to potentially launch another impeachment witch hunt into the president.
It is his lowest move yet, and that is saying something since the California politician has already stooped lower than anyone thought possible.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is also doing her best not to let the coronavirus pandemic go to waste for Democrats.
Pelosi is pushing for federally forced vote by mail in the 2020 election in the next round of coronavirus aid.
One expert has said the Democrats’ plan for nationwide mail-in voting could send ballots to 24 million inaccurate and flawed voter registrations .
