Schiff To Start Investigation Into Trump & COVID-19, Like 9/11 & Pearl Harbor

It looks like Rep. Adam Schiff is readying his basement bunker on Capitol Hill for round two as he once again takes on President Donald Trump. The California Democrat is comparing investigations into the president and the coronavirus to “9/11 and Pearl Harbor.” Of course, the Democrats have come up with a litany of bogus charges against President Trump. You don’t want to miss this.

You have got to give Adam Schiff credit. This guy is living by the Democrats’ motto: “never let a good crisis go to waste.” According to the medical experts, our country has not seen the worst of this pandemic yet, but here is Shifty Schiff ready to launch an investigation.

“Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Monday he will introduce a bill to create a ‘nonpartisan commission’ to study ‘our mistakes’ on coronavirus — which spread while Schiff was leading the effort to impeach and remove the president,” Breitbart reports. 

We should point out that the 9/11 Commission was set up in November 2002. The hearings and investigation happened in 2003. You can’t investigate an ongoing crisis. It makes zero sense.

“After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes. Once we’ve recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic. I’m working on a bill to do that,” tweeted Schiff with a link to a piece in the Washington Post.

As Breitbart has noted, Democrats handed over the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on the very day the first coronavirus victim landed in the U.S. from China. Congress spent the next 20 days on the impeachment trial, led by Schiff as head impeachment manager and chair of the House Intelligence Committee.

While Schiff was busy impeaching Trump, the president was getting ready to fight the coronavirus. 

It was not until Trump was acquitted on February 5 that a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee held a hearing on coronavirus. In contrast, Trump had taken action to form his coronavirus task force on January 30, while Schiff and his cohorts were busy impeaching the president.

Throughout the 20 days of the impeachment trial, while Schiff and his team were preoccupied with trying to remove the president from office, Trump took several actions aimed at fighting the coronavirus.

Trump also imposed his travel ban on China on January 30 — the day the Senate voted on witnesses in the impeachment trial. In fact, the entire list of Trump’s actions is quite extensive. After he implemented the travel restrictions, HHS Secretary Alex Azar declared a nationwide public health emergency.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), one of the only legislators to raise the alarm on coronavirus, told the Arkansas Gazette in January that he was breaking the rules and skipping to trial to work with the administration on the coronavirus issue.  

Schiff, as chair of the House Intelligence Committee, receives briefings on threats facing the United States.

His proposed new bill would create a “9/11 Commission”-style inquiry into how the U.S. dealt with coronavirus.

Schiff broke the news of his bill with David Ignatius of the Washington Post — the same columnist who broke the news in January 2017 that incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn had spoken with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Flynn had been “unmasked” in transcripts of wiretapped telephone conversations.

You have got to love how these swamp creatures all stick together. 

So, this will be the Democrats’ latest scheme to get rid of Trump. Nancy Pelosi has been pushing the narrative that the president “was fiddling” while Americans died. She also got help from George Soros to sell these lies to the American people.

Soros was caught dumping millions into an ad campaign that produced a slick commercial that ran in 1,039 different markets across the United States. The commercial takes Trump totally out of context. The president is heard saying, “This is the new hoax.” He was referring to the media’s biased coverage of the coronavirus blaming him for “not taking it seriously.”

Americans blasted Shifty Schiff on social media. 

“Congress was too busy impeaching the president for nothing to notice that an impending pandemic was on its way from China… or.. maybe impeachment was a deliberate distraction? Maybe Covid-19 is the ‘insurance policy?’” tweeted “McTamination.”

“This is the clearest sign yet that progressives want to weaponize this against Trump for the election. Will Schiff include progressive media outlets & politicians who said CV was no big deal & encouraged people in cities like NY to party in large groups?” tweeted Adrian Norman.

“You’re an a**hole and I’m tired of you spending my hard-earned tax dollars going down endless rabbit holes,” tweeted “Queen Robina.”

“You and all the corrupt Dems don’t even know HOW to be nonpartisan! Politics, money, and power. It’s all you care about,” tweeted Melinda Tortolando.

It’s utterly ridiculous to launch an investigation into an ongoing crisis. Especially since our taxpayer dollars are already maxed out going to the $2 trillion dollar stimulus.

China is to blame for the coronavirus, period. 

“I will be very candid with you and say that in mid-January the CDC was still assessing that the risk of the coronavirus to the American people was low. The very first case, which was someone who had been in China — in late January around the 20th day of January,” VP Mike Pence told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

China purposely downplayed and failed to warn the world of what was going on inside their communist nation. Based on those lies, the CDC and the rest of the world did not take the virus seriously. It was only President Trump who took an unprecedented move to ban travel from China early on.

He took heat from his own advisers who told him not to initiate the ban. Joe Biden called him “xenophobic,” and the mainstream media echoed that sentiment. Every American should be livid at Adam Schiff. How dare he attempt to use taxpayer funds to politicize a national emergency.
