“BUT IT’S TOUGHER WHEN YOU’RE STUPID”

(Apr. 1, 2020) — Well, whadda ya know? That stellar intellect of the House Intelligence [sic] Committee, Representative Adam Schiff, has announced that, at the appropriate time, he will task the committee with investigating President Trump’s response to the Wuhan COVID-19 virus. Schiff recently “tweeted” that “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.”
Ummm… memo to Schiff: you dolt, did you even read the bill, either before you voted on it or after it was enacted? Apparently not. Did you read it before composing your tweet? Obviously not. Did you ask any of your crack (and by that term I am referring to skillsets, not controlled substances…) aides and assistants advise you on the contents of the law before your tweet? Again, clearly not. Because if you had done any of those things, you would have realized – maybe – that the legislation, now having evolved into Public Law 116-136 after signing by President Trump – already provides for the creation of the “Pandemic Response Accountability Committee.” See Pub.L. 116-136, pp. 253-260.
That committee is established within the federal “Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency” and is populated by members of the various Inspectors General of the myriad federal agencies where they exist. The committee is empowered to, among other things, investigate and report on “the Federal Government’s response to the nationwide public health emergency declared by the Secretary of Health and Human Services” relating to the Wuhan COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. Mercifully, no members of Congress are included on the committee.
Memo No. 2 to Schiff: while you and your aides, assistants, cronies and media flaks are working on “a bill” to create a “commission” to investigate how President Trump has handled the response to this pestilence, you might want to bone up on the provisions of the law you have already participated in. Knowing that your attention span is measured in nanoseconds, and for your convenience, here it is again: https://www.congress.gov/116/bills/hr748/BILLS-116hr748enr.pdf.
John Wayne was right: “Life is tough, but it’s tougher when you’re stupid.”
