Senate Republicans Push to Hold China Accountable, Democrats Offer Silence
Washington, D.C. – As millions of Americans face a severe public health crisis and economic uncertainty brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic, many Republican senators have sought to hold China accountable for the deception and lies surrounding the origin and rapid spread of the deadly disease. This stands in stark contrast to the total silence from DSCC-backed Senate candidates and incumbents on China’s cover up. The talking points issued by their political overlord, Chuck Schumer, only relate to false attacks designed to sow confusion amid a national crisis.
Now today we learn from the Associated Press that the Chinese government, in addition to other cover up attempts, knew a pandemic was brewing in their country 6 days before they told the public.
Democrats’ unwillingness to acknowledge China’s role in setting off a global pandemic underscores their preference for criticizing members of an opposing political party over angering a Communist government responsible for widespread chaos.
