House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi made it clear that she knows there was something wrong with Donald Trump’s response to the Coronavirus crisis in the United States and directly said that we will get to the bottom of it with some kind of investigation when the time is more appropriate.
Speaker Pelosi did an interview Sunday with CNN and Jake Tapper, where she was asked, “Trump is considering relaxing federal guidelines for coronavirus for some of the less affected parts of the country, do you think he should?”
She answered, “Well, first of all let me just say how sad it is that even since the President’s signing of the bill, the number of deaths reported has doubled from one thousand to two thousand in our country. This is such a very, very sad time for us. We should be taking every precaution.”
Speaker Pelosi then went on to highlight some important facts, that Trump delayed in, “getting equipment to where it is needed,” and that Trump’s delay has in fact been “deadly.” She then made it clear that we need more testing, but also hinted at what she is already thinking of doing after the crisis has calmed.
“I don’t know what the scientists are saying to him. I don’t know what the scientists said to him. 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. and we have to, we just have to take every precaution,” Speaker Pelosi said, as seen in the footage below.

This is monumental. Obviously Donald Trump must be investigated for how he handled Coronavirus. We all watched as he downplayed the situation and now look at where we are. Impeachment is absolutely on Speaker Pelosi’s mind.
How do we know this? Because the questions she’s asking are the exact same ones that were asked in 1973 by GOP Senator Howard Baker, when he asked, “My primary thesis is still, what did the president know, and when did he know it?” Speaker Pelosi did not ask the exact same question today in the exact same why by accident. She’s giving us more than a hint that another impeachment is on the table for Trump over this.
