Committee focus supposed to be on spending of stimulus funds, but has broad enough scope and subpoena power to turn into another impeachment-style fiasco in the middle of a national crisis.
Americans are dying, losing their family members and friends, and facing economic ruin. Trump-obsessed Democrats see nothing but a new opening to investigate Trump. This is all they care about. This is all they will ever care about.
Democrats clearly have no idea what kind of anger this could unleash.
NBC News reports:
Informal discussions begin on 9/11-style commission on coronavirus response
Informal discussions have begun on Capitol Hill about the possibility of creating a panel to scrutinize the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic that would be modeled on the commission that investigated the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, according to four people familiar with the discussions.
They described the discussions as “very preliminary” and involving mostly congressional Democrats.
One option could be a plan to review the administration’s response in the annual National Defense Authorization Act, two of the people said.
Adam Schiff has already tweeted about this:
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.https://t.co/uqO3BwVldN

Pelosi took the first step today, forming a committee to investigage Trump’s distribution of stimulus funds, but with a broad enough scope to probe into every detail of the administrations response:
Speaker Pelosi announces new House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis, chaired by Rep. Clyburn. Question: How much of its activities will be legitimate oversight of $2T in spending, and how much will be extension of House Dems' get-Trump campaign? https://t.co/GOMf1EZi9W pic.twitter.com/T8uQTHkgc9

I asked Pelosi if she backs a 9/11-type commission to probe what went wrong – as Schiff and Bennie Thompson propose – and she suggested that is not her focus at the moment. The focus, she said, is the “here and now.” She added the new select committee will have subpoena power

The very people who distracted the nation with their impeachment ambitions as the virus was taking hold in the United States have absolutely no business proposing this type of investigation. They have exhausted the good will and patience of the American people.
While these useless, damaged people were trying to impeach Trump in January and February, Trump was establishing the White House Coronavirus Task Force, and shutting down flights from China, for which they accused him of racism.
Trump even spoke of the threat of Coronavirus in his State of the Union speech, which Nancy Pelosi famously tore up out of spite.
The very day Democrats made a spectacle of themselves, marching their articles of impeachment to the Senate, Coronavirus was arriving in the United States.
Elizabeth Vaughn writes at RedState:
Two Fateful Events Occurred on January 15 Which Changed America for Years to Come; One Glaring, the Other Quiet
On January 15, America watched as a group of prideful House Democrats, placing partisan interests above their country, walked the spurious Articles of Impeachment over to the Senate. The solemn looks on their faces belied the elation they tried hard not to show. For the next three weeks, we watched the spectacle of Adam Schiff and his team trying desperately to prove their fraudulent case against President Trump. Fortunately, they failed.
At the same time, an airplane landed at Washington State’s Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. A 35-year-old man had just returned from visiting his family in Wuhan, China. Five days later, on January 20, he would become the first person in the U.S. to test positive for the coronavirus.
Remember the ceremonial march of Democrat impeachment managers? That was the same day corona came to America. pic.twitter.com/qOOSpmR1rV

Democrats and their many media allies wasted valuable time at the beginning of this crisis.
When CDC announced first US case, Pelosi was handing out her impeachment pens
POTUS began screening airports 2 days later
When President Trump shut down travel, Pelosi called for more witnesses to shut down the Senate

After her sham went up in flames, Pelosi was looking for her “next attack” on Feb. 11
That day the Trump admin partnered w/Janssen Research & Development to expedite development of a coronavirus vaccine

If anything needs to be investigated after this crisis is over, it is our media’s connections to China’s communist regime.
Republicans, conservatives, independents, and Trump supporters have not marched on Washington to protest the constant attacks on Trump from Democrats and the media over the last three and a half years.
If Democrats persist in this new effort, they might just get it. Pitchforks and all.DONATE
