    "Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff suggested the creation of a commission to examine the federal government's response to the coronavirus pandemic that has sickened thousands of U.S. citizens.

    “We will need to delay the work of the commission until the crisis has abated to ensure that it does not interfere with the agencies that are leading the response,” Schiff said in an email to the Washington Post. “But that should not prevent us from beginning to identify where we got it wrong and how we can be prepared for the next pandemic.”

    Republicans always think these hearings are just to damage people politically because...that's what Republicans do.

    “What you’re going to see is a conservative Speaker, that takes a conservative Congress, that puts a strategy to fight and win. And let me give you one example. Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right?

    “But we put together a Benghazi special committee. A select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would have known that any of that had happened had we not fought to make that happen.”

    The Washington Examiner is an online blog..it is not MSM..shouldn't this be in the Non MSM threads?

    The Washington Examiner is an American conservative news website and weekly magazine based in Washington, D.C. It is owned by MediaDC, a subsidiary of Clarity Media Group, which is owned by Philip Anschutz.

    From 2005 to mid-2013, the Examiner published a daily tabloid-sized newspaper, distributed throughout the Washington, D.C. metro area. The newspaper focused on local news and political commentary.[3] The local newspaper ceased publication on June 14, 2013, and its content began to focus exclusively on national politics, switching its print edition from a daily newspaper to a weekly magazine format.[4]

    The Examiner is known for its conservative political stance and features conservative writers.[5]

The first thing that Schiff thinks of is how can we use this to bludgeon Trump with. Even while bodies are dropping, and the country needs hope. Sickening.
    I'd like to see poll numbers on what kind of support this bs would garner. Americans are in pure survival mode and pretty much shell shocked at what's happening because of this pandemic, and I don't think there's an appetite for using this to attack Trump.
    But Democrats are blind to their own evil at this point.

    exactly...we need to know why Trump downplayed this and if his downplaying it led to deaths...further, we need to know why he sold most of our emergency PPE to China and no one was told about it. We need to know how much we paid Russia for that same equipment and why.

    I suspect they weren't donations...I am betting Trump got his wallet padded.

    But investigating this is going to be a long term undertaking, and it will unwind a lot of threads in this corrupt, incompetent Administration and its serial malfeasance.
    You think this is bad, just wait until the results of all the years wasted denying climate change start to kick in. We may be dealing and cleaning up so many catastrophic crises and messes from this administration that it will likely occupy us for decades to come. This "long term undertaking" may not happen for a long time. It may be up to future historians to explore the full catastrophic consequences of the Trump administration, many of whom probably aren't even born yet. We will have too many fires to put out until then.

    Anyone who does not want to look into this, or thinks only in terms of it as a political gotcha is someone who would use it that way.
    They absolutely need to have an investigation into the response ignorer to improve upon it for the next time this happens, and it will happen again.

    I don't think that it is a stretch to say that climate change will most likely cause these types of things to happen more often in the future. One thing this has shown that for a conservative to react the threat has to be killing them. They just can't think about anything in the future, especially if they think it will cost them money now.

    you don't think Americans want to know why we weren't prepared?
