Congress Was Warned About Coronavirus But Was Too Focused On Impeachment To Act

And now we’re supposed to trust Government and give up all our rights?

From Spectator.org:

The lethal price tag for the months of the Impeach Trump obsession by Democrats is now in — and rising.

Over there at Breitbart, Joel Pollak, one of the serious journalists of the day, has put together this telling timeline that shows exactly what Democrats were doing as the coronavirus loomed. Here’s the link to Joel’s story — and here’s his very revealing timeline:

  • January 11: Chinese state media report the first known death from an illness originating in the Wuhan market.

  • January 15: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) holds a vote to send articles of impeachment to the Senate. Pelosi and House Democrats celebrate the “solemn” occasion with a signing ceremony, using commemorative pens.

  • January 21: The first person with coronavirus arrives in the United States from China, where he had been in Wuhan.

  • January 23: The House impeachment managers make their opening arguments for removing President Trump.

  • January 23: China closes off the city of Wuhan completely to slow the spread of coronavirus to the rest of China.

  • January 30: Senators begin asking two days of questions of both sides in the president’s impeachment trial.

  • January 30: The World Health Organization declares a global health emergency as coronavirus continues to spread.

  • January 31: The Senate holds a vote on whether to allow further witnesses and documents in the impeachment trial.

  • January 31: President Trump declares a national health emergency and imposes a ban on travel to and from China. Former Vice President Joe Biden calls Trump’s decision “hysterical xenophobia … and fear-mongering.”

  • February 2: The first death from coronavirus outside China is reported in the Philippines.

  • February 3: House impeachment managers begin closing arguments, calling Trump a threat to national security.

  • February 4: President Trump talks about coronavirus in his State of the Union address; Pelosi rips up every page.

  • February 5: The Senate votes to acquit President Trump on both articles of impeachment, 52-48 and 53-47.

  • February 5: House Democrats finally take up coronavirus in the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia.

And there, in black and white, is exactly the problem. Republicans at the time warned that Democrats were so mindlessly obsessed with impeachment that other issues were being routinely ignored. Immigration, trade, health care, and on and on went the list of concerns that were being ignored in favor of the impeachment obsession.

But there was another issue Democrats were ignoring while they spent their time impeaching the president. A very, very big issue that involved life or death.

The American Spectator’s Dov Fischer took it head on right here. His title: 
The Real Threat to Our Democracy During Coronavirus
Pelosi, Schiff & Co. were too busy dragging the country through impeachment to pay attention to ominous developments in Asia.
