Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Sunday accused President Donald Trump of ‘fiddling while people are dying’ of the COVID-19 Chinese coronavirus.
Pelosi then raised the Watergate question of ‘what did the president know and when did he know it’ when saying an “after-action review” would take place to investigate President Trump.
“The president, his denial at the beginning was deadly,” she told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “His delaying of getting equipment to where it continued — his continued delay in getting equipment to where it’s needed is deadly. Now the best thing to do would be to prevent more loss of life rather than open things up, because we just don’t know.”
Tapper asked: “Are you saying his downplaying ultimately cost American lives?”
“Yes, I am,” Pelosi replied.
Pelosi also hinted there would be an investigation into the administration’s handling of the pandemic once things go back to normal.
“I don’t know what the scientists said to him,” Pelosi stated. “When did this president know about this, and what did he know? What did he know and when did he know it? That’s for an after-action review.”
“But as the president fiddles, people are dying. We just have to take every precaution.”
Pelosi’s “what did the President know and when did he know it” question is an obvious nod to the Watergate impeachment investigation of President Richard Nixon that led to his resignation in 1974.
The question was asked at a June 29, 1973 Senate hearing by Republican Sen. Howard Baker of Tennessee.
