It took him long enough!
House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) recently appeared on MSNBC where took a page out of President Trump’s book and criticized the Chinese government for their mishandling of the coronavirus outbreak.
According to Breitbart, “We can’t rely I think on the numbers that China’s giving out — both because I think the Chinese leadership probably wants to present their model as the successful model and given all the problems the United States is having, this is among other things, a propaganda coup for China to be sending medical equipment to the United States instead of the other way around, but also because historically when there have been viruses or other health or other problems in China, there are people that lie to the Chinese government, lie to their own government, lie to their own people because they are afraid of retribution by the officials higher up,” Schiff said.
“We can’t rely, for example, on what the Russians say in Russia,” Schiff added. “We can’t rely on what the Iranians are saying about what goes on in Iran. And because the virus knows no borders, it’s important for us to find out the best we can where the truth lies in terms of where the virus is and what the impacts are.” You can watch a clip of Schiff’s comments here.
