Schiff blames U.S. coronavirus death count on failed impeachment of President Trump

On MSNBC Monday night, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) made the assertion that U.S. coronavirus deaths were “casualties” of President Donald Trump, that a successful impeachment could have lowered the U.S. death count.

“We can’t act even slightly surprised by this because you told us this was going to happen in your argument in the Senate impeachment trial,” said anchor Lawrence O’Donnell.

“The one thing we dramatically understated is when we asked the question, ‘If you found him guilty, do you really need to remove him given there is another election only nine months away, how much damage could he really do,’” replied Schiff.

“We said a lot, but little did we know just how great the casualties would be,” he continued. “Some days we lose the equivalent of the number of people we lost on 9/11. You know, I think that there is no way we could have foreseen just how tragic his malfeasance would be in his remaining months in the administration.”


In March, The Federalist published a detailed timeline of Trump’s coronavirus response:

“On Jan. 30, the WHO declared a global health emergency of international concern.

“On Jan. 30, the CDC confirmed publicly for the first time the person-to-person spread of Wuhan virus and applauded WHO’s decision. That day, the president created the White House Coronavirus Task Force to coordinate efforts regarding this new disease.

“The next day, Jan. 31, the president declared coronavirus a U.S. public health emergency and issued the ban on travel between the United States and China. On that same day, the Senate voted on the production of additional documents in the impeachment trial of President Trump. Campaigning in Iowa that day, Biden criticized President Trump’s China travel ban, saying during an Iowa campaign event, ‘This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia.’

“Feb. 4: The White House directed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to step up coronavirus diagnostic testing procedures.”

The list goes on.

What were the Democrats doing between January 30 and February 5? Worrying about impeachment. If anyone other than the Chinese Communist Party has blood on their hands, it is the Democrats.

    Schiff, Pelosi, Schumer, Nader and all of their gang in the US House Representative have NO working brain.
    Their brain only content two elements: HATE & STUPID.
    They held the no-ground impeachment until Feb 2020, so it held up all of POTUS’s attention and energy, without any time or energy to handle the pandemic. However, Trump acted quickly on 1/31/2020 to stop all travels to and from China.
    Americans should ASK WHAT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY & ITS MEMBERS ( including Pelosi and her gang) has done any thing to stop, or cure the covid-19. NONE. They just BLAME, BLAME, and BLAME. POTUS.
    President Trump has done and continue to find solutions to control this pandemic which none of previous presidents in the last 30 yrs had to deal with.
    Do you think Joe Biden and the Democratic party can do anything to control the pandemic ? He’a a corrupt
    and inability politician. Only the one without logic and reasonable brain would vote for Biden or any democratic politician this November .

    WAKE-UP AMERICAN. Do Not vote base on the politician party. Vote for one whose agenda is to promote the benefits of USA and for American, and
    will make American great again .
    Avoid any corrupted candidate and who only want to promote socialism and communism.

    How stupid and idiotic can you be it’s not his fault it’s people like you that dont care bout the human race. You need to get put behind bars like a few other ones doing wrong doing in your party and lying etc etc ect.

    This excuse for a human is about the most despicable individual to spew venom that inhabits our GREAT AMERICA! Nothing but human garbage.

    It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant and foolish the Democrats believe the American public to be! When Pelosi or Schiff or Sanders or Biden or any other staunch Democrat, open their mouths to speak, they act and sound like they are all-wise and all-knowing, and they are “the only way”. It is a dangerous way to live and quite honestly it frightens me to think anyone living in this country who calls themselves an American, can even stomach the sound of their rhetoric, thinking they are the only ones with the answers and we had better listen or we will be sorry. This completely astounds me until I stop to realize the reason for the Democratic disdain of our President is because he is not a politician but rather a business man with common sense, who is truly dedicated and focused on the preservation of the United States and the society our forefathers fought and died to protect and preserve over the last 200 + years. How quickly we forget!
    I am glad my Father and Grandfather are not alive to witness this debauchery. It would kill them from a broken heart.
    God Bless American and God Bless Donald Trump! Mr. President please continue making America Great and know that we are out hear, praising your continued efforts! Don’t be discouraged! You are a great President and you came along at just the right time, to save us from ourselves!

    So we should impeach someone on the basis that in the future something/anything might happen and if not impeached if something/anything does happen it’s the fault of not impeaching? Most likely the dumbest thing anyone who is not doing meth have ever said.

    i wouldn’t be surprised if that didn’t have something to do with this. It’s a terrible thing to say but this man is so obsessed with getting Trump who knows what he’s capable of.

    Mr. Schiff’s argument is false in the sense that regardless of who was in the office of President, they would not have foreseen how brutal this outbreak would be because all of the other world leaders were also caught by surprise.

    The scope of this pending disaster even surprised the W.H.O. (who is supposed to be the watchdog for infectious diseases). W.H,O. failed to sound the alarm soon enough and even reported that the Chinese government & scientists saw no evidence of human-to-human transmission of Covid-19 as late as January 14.

    Ultimately, though, Mr. Schiiff and his team failed to provide enough high-quality evidence to convict & remove President Trump from office. His dereliction of duty led to Trump’s remaining. in office. Therefore, Mr. Schiff’s failed performance (to use an argument even he would love) was the real cause of all deaths in the USA due to Covid-19.

    This problem with the COVID-19 deaths is DIRECTLY attributed to the Democrats failure to action, running an ILLEGAL (and FAILED coup, like what every Democrat does) COUP instead of DOING their job protecting the interests and LIVES of the American People. This TREASONISTIC Traitor needs to be REMOVED from Office ASAP awaiting a PRISON cell for SEDITION and TREASON as per the U.S. Constitution. One Wary and DISGUSTED Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

    Right on, Joey. He, Pelosi, and AOC along with several other Democrats need to be removed. We definitely need to take back the House as well as maintain the Senate and Presidency in the next general election.

    Shiff has to be the dumbest person on earth. When the Dems get their ass handed to them again, maybe they’ll realize the American people aren’t as dumb as they think they are.

    if Schiff wasn’t such a liar, he’d be an even bigger buffoon. I’m wondering why the MSNBC editorializer (not a reporter or journalist, in my opinion. . .perhaps a creative writer?) didn’t ask Lyin’ Adam why his cohort, Nasty Nan, was in Chinatown in February “hugging a Chinese” without a mask when President Trump had already suspended flights from China, as well as Europe, and was being called a racist for doing so by these very members of the House as they were in the midst of trying to railroad their partisan impeachment through. Any bets on how many more people would have been infected and died had a democrat been president, open borders and all?

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is one sick-puppy [sorry to all cute 4-legged fluff balls]; he is unquestionably the sickest puppy in the pound. Schiff’s lethal affliction is highly contagious and totally incurable. He MUST be euthanized and put down A.S.A.P. for the health and survival of the species.
