Schiff Unveils Bill To Create Coronavirus Commission to Examine U.S. Response


House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) introduced legislation on Friday that would establish a coronavirus bipartisan commission to review and provide a full account of the U.S. response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“After Pearl Harbor, September 11, and other momentous events in American history, independent, bipartisan commissions have been established to provide a complete accounting of what happened, what we did right and wrong, and what we can do to better protect the country in the future,” Schiff said in a statement. “And though we are still early in this crisis, over sixteen thousand Americans have died so far. It is clear that a comprehensive and authoritative review will be required, not as a political exercise to cast blame, but to learn from our mistakes to prevent history from tragically repeating itself.”
