Rep. Adam Schiff is drafting a bill to create a "9/11-style commission" to scrutinize the Trump administration’s slow, unprepared response to fighting coronavirus.
He told MSNBC's Lawrence O’Donnell that Trump saying impeachment distracted from the pandemic is "an interesting acknowledgement that the administration has screwed up this response" but the president’s delay in taking the virus seriously has had "catastrophic consequences."
“After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes,” the House Intelligence Committee chairman tweeted Wednesday. “Once we've recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic.”
"Let’s put an after-action review down the road," Speaker Pelosi told CNN Wednesday.
