Schiff Introduces Bill To Create Coronavirus Commission

Representative Adam Schiff has submitted a bill that would create a Senate commission to investigate the country’s response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Schiff: “Comprehensive and Authoritative Review Required”

Schiff had announced the creation of the commission at the start of the month, claiming that the country needed a 9/11 and Pearl Harbor style commission to “review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic.”

On Friday, Schiff said that he had created a bill with Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris to establish such a commission.

“Though we are still in the midst of the Coronavirus crisis, over 16,000 Americans have died,” Schiff tweeted. “It’s clear we’ll need a bipartisan commission to ensure we’re better prepared for the next 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.”

The commission would be composed of 10 individuals, 5 Democrats and 5 Republicans, none of whom would be current federal officials, would possess subpoena power, and would proceed to make a full report on the outbreak and the nation’s response.

Impeachment 2.0!

This follows an announcement from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about the creation of a Congressional committee to investigate the coronavirus. They will investigate the management of the bailout package to help coronavirus victims (which amounts to over $2 trillion of government spending), and the general response from the White House, President Trump and his administration to the pandemic.

We can all see what this is: it’s nothing more than “Impeachment 2.0.” Schiff and the other Democrats are still salty from the fact that President Trump is still in office, and want to batter him over the head with this deadly pandemic that has claimed over 18,000 American lives so far.

Schiff said the commission will be “bipartisan,” so why haven’t any Republican congressmen supported his bill? Surely a bipartisan commission, if necessary, would gain the support of legislators from across the aisle?

The fact that it hasn’t should be huge red flag.

Judge Napolitano Suggests Jury Foreperson in Roger Stone Trial Could Be Jailed, Conviction Overturned

Judge Andrew Napolitano commented on the remarkable revelations coming out of the Roger Stone trial, namely that the jury foreperson had a significant anti-Trump and anti-Stone bias.

Facts regarding Tomeka Hart, the juror in question, have been coming out of late, facts that probably should have been known by the judge or prosecutors in the case long before now.

Hart, it has been revealed, donated to Democrat candidates rather frequently (she donated $100 to Kamala Harris during the trial), actually ran for Congress as a Democrat, posted on social media that supporters of the President are racists, and even shared a post mocking Stone for decrying the ‘excessive force’ used in his arrest.

“Then stop being racists,” she wrote in response to one article about Trump supporters growing weary of being called the term.

“Co-signing and defending a racist and his racist rhetoric makes you racist,” Hart continued. “Point blank.”

Which begs the question, how in the hell was this woman, who very clearly has an animus towards Stone and anybody involved with President Trump, allowed to serve on the jury period, much less as foreperson?

Napolitano has some opinions and if they’re right, suggests Hart could be looking at being charged with a crime.

Did She Hide Her Bias?

Judge Napolitano appeared with Fox News personality Tucker Carlson to discuss the case which has ignited Democrats to pursue new impeachment charges and investigations against the President and Attorney General Bill Barr.

“Why was someone like this allowed to remain on the jury?” Carlson asked.

Hart, Napolitano believes, has a very serious problem if it is determined that she intentionally hid her bias.

“This is information that she must have hidden from the lawyers and the judge who interrogated her before she was put on the jury,” he explained, noting that federal cases require a judge interrogate the jurors.

“The purpose of the interrogation is to weed out people that have a bias, prejudice, and knowledge of case or interest in the outcome,” Napolitano continued.

“She obviously had a prejudice against Roger Stone, a bias in favor of his prosecution, and an interest in seeing him convicted.”

There is another scenario though less likely – that the judge and prosecutors knew of Hart’s mindset and were okay with it.

Bring Her Back In

The reality is, in most courts in America this would be grounds for a mistrial.

Napolitano believes the judge in this trial needs to bring Hart back in, along with the prosecutors who recently attempted to resign in protest over perceived interference by the President, and interrogate her again.

If it is determined Hart lied about bias or prior knowledge of Stone in her initial interrogation, said Napolitano, “It would be catastrophic for her.”

“First of all, she is a lawyer,” he said. “So she would be prosecuted for perjury since the statements are given under oath.”

“And if convicted she would lose her license to practice law but that would be the least of her concerns,” Napolitano continued. “She probably would serve jail time if she lied in order to affect the outcome of a case.”

He also proposed that if it is determined that Hart falsely represented herself, the conviction would be vacated and a new trial ordered.

Considering Democrats are hell-bent on taking down President Trump and AG Bill Barr over this, imagine their rage when one of their own resistance footsoldiers ends up getting Stone off.
