Without naming Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, President Trump is slamming Democrats for their planned investigation into the administration while the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic continues to rage.
"I want to remind everyone here in our Nation's Capitol, especially in Congress, that this is not the time for politics, endless partisan investigations, here we go again. They've already done extraordinary damage to our country in recent years," Trump said from the daily White House Wuhan coronavirus task force briefing. "You see what happens, it's a witch hunt and witch hunt after witch hunt and in the end the people doing the witch hunt have been losing. They've been losing by a lot. And it's not any time for witch hunts, it's time to get this enemy defeated."
"These partisan investigations, in the middle of a pandemic, is really a waste of vital resources: time, attention. We want to fight for American lives, not waste time," he continued. "Everyone knows it's ridiculous. We want to focus on this country."

Earlier Thursday Pelosi announced a commission will be formed to investigate the Trump administration's response to the Wuhan coronavirus. It will be led by Congressman James Clyburn, who said this crisis presents Democrats with an opportunity to shape and push through a far-left agenda. Congressman Adam Schiff is also involved.
After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes.— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) April 1, 2020
Once we've recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic.
I’m working on a bill to do that.https://t.co/uqO3BwVldN
