Former Trump advisers used private emails to warn of 'critical mistakes' in pandemic response

Source: The Hill

Top advisers to former President Trump used private emails to warn of the government's "critical mistakes" in response to the coronavirus pandemic, even as the president was downplaying the severity of the virus, according to emails obtained by the House coronavirus subcommittee and released Tuesday.

Steven Hatfill, a virologist who worked as an outside consultant for the administration, privately warned White House trade director Peter Navarro at the end of February 2020 that the U.S. did not have any accurate sense of just how many people were infected with the virus.

"In truth we do not have a clue how many are infected in the USA. We are expecting the first wave to spread in the US within the next 7 days," Hatfill wrote to Navarro on Feb. 29.

"This will be accompanied by a massive loss of credibility, and the Democratic accusations are just now beginning. This must be countered with frank honesty about the situation and decisive direct actions that are being taken and can be seen in the broadcast news."

2. Of course they did.....the GOP has been running their communications on non-government servers.

Since 2000? Organized crime parties that also create laws, do this.

6. The question arises,...

who is more evil? ...Trump the broken, lunatic solipsist, or those around him who knew what is right and wrong, but continued to enable and enact his policies of mass death?

11. They knew and yet did everything they could to avoid responsibility for saving lives.

I have said it from the first we heard of the impending pandemic. They do not know how to do anything except blame someone else. They cannot lead nor acknowledge faults and failures because they are not there to do the job. They are there to grift, every damn one of them.

There needs to be a tribunal; a public reckoning of who knew and when, and what they did not do to preserve the health and safety of America... And chief among them should be the enablers large and small.
