More from the press release...

..."Dr. Hatfill has failed to comply with requests to provide key documents and information that the Select Subcommittee needs to complete its inquiry. The Select Subcommittee obtained copies of certain documents regarding Dr. Hatfill's role working on the federal government's pandemic response from alternate sources. ...

Dr. Hatfill criticized the Trump Administration's pandemic response and called for the firing of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci and then-Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Stephen Hahn.

-- In a September 22, 2020, letter to then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Dr. Hatfill advocated that "Two members of the COVID-19 Task Force (Drs, Fauci, and Hahn) need to be urgently replaced." Dr. Hatfill also urged that "The US COVID-19 strategy must be changed to a focused, community outreach approach involving the outpatient and prophylactic use of hydroxychloroquine with Zinc supplementation" to treat the coronavirus, advised that "COVID testing in the US is still broken" due to delays in test processing, and warned that, "Until the National Pandemic Plan is properly implemented, there is no hope of a win and this pandemic will have to burn itself out with thousands of more preventable deaths in the process."

In March and April 2020, when the nation faced desperate shortages of masks necessary to keep frontline workers safe"due to insufficient manufacturing capacity coupled with increased demand and exacerbated by the Trump Administration's failure to implement a coordinated national plan to alleviate these shortages"Dr. Hatfill declined opportunities to be connected with potential suppliers because the goods were not manufactured in the United States....

That is some of the tamer stuff contained in the press release. He was an interesting quite-behind-the-scenes-advisor to fmr Pres Trump and one who, apparently, had quite an influence with fmr Pres Trump.

And hopefully he will be held accountable for his actions.

Being as both he and the President were criminally incompetent and criminally negligent which has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans and the ongoing suffering of their families.

No one is above the law. And now he doesn't have his uncle sugar to protect him from his crimes.

My question: Can more than one Federal Grand Jury at a time be seated to handle the multitude of cases against Trump's multitude of enablers?

It's seems to me that the list is growing exponentially as subpoenas are issued and documentary evidence comes pouring in.

Send the US Marshals after him. Park him in the DC Jail until he decides to talk. Put him in general population with the local bad hombres, not that 1/6 pack of cowards...

None of this is going to matter when the Republicans take over Congress in a year. Democrats are acting like they have time to draw all of this out. Running out of time, folks. They have power right now, I don't understand why they insist on pretending they don't.

No, actually it's worse than that. Democrats have decided that fighting with and working against your own party over fixing bridges is more important than saving our democracy.

They are fiddling-faddling while Rome burns.

What a bunch of drama queens. Run good candidates campaigning on popular policies and you don't have to worry about the GOP.

Instead your party runs on identity politics, self-induced high energy costs, out-spending the GOP, a completely open and chaotic Southern border resulting in a humanitarian crisis. Selling out energy production to Putin. Complete and total capitulation to China on pretty much every front. Imposing the tenets of CRT into K-12. Endless masking and lockdowns, just because. Having government partner with Big Tech to engage in censorship Partnering with major media outlets to be propaganda arms to a degree worse than Fox News is on the right. Pushing to have biological males compete in women's sports and invade their safe spaces based on nothing more than, "I identify as a woman." - Heather Swanson.

Your stupid Democratic Party desperately needs Trump. Right now, your party cannot survive without him. The Biden administration is an absolute tire fire.

Fortunately for you the GOP is incredibly stupid and will undoubtedly vote for Trump in the next primary.

I love getting election advice from a cult member who has to rewrite election laws across the country because the last election was too fair and too hard to corrupt.

Maybe if your cult's policies were more popular you wouldnt have to replace democracy with fascism.

For the record, I didn't vote for Trump. But you can't see that because everything is binary for you. You need to adjust your meds.

In the meantime, your party is so pathetic that you have to have rules that favor you so you win the white house even when you get fewer votes. Your cult has only won more votes ONCE since 2000.

Let that sink in.

Name another country where the loser party is allowed to take power.

The side which gets less votes is lecturing about who deserves power. Precious.

Your only defense of this injustice is - well it's always been that way. So what? It shouldnt be fixed. PS it wasn't always that way. It was a way to convince you confederates to rejoin the union.

The electoral college has existed since this country was founded.

How are you this brazenly ignorant when you could double check your assertions in a matter of seconds using Google?

In 1804, 12th Amendment to the Constitution made sure that electors designate their votes for president and vice president, but the 12th Amendment leaves in place a tie breaking system established by the Constitution by which the House of Representatives breaks a tie on presidential electoral votes and the Senate breaks a tie on vice presidential electoral votes.

I wouldn't quite say subjugated.
This is who they've always been.
They have simply dispensed with pretending they're not racist misogynist thugs.

Thats exactly the only thing your party has been doing since they lost in 2020.

Besides trying to keep covid going and crash the economy to score political points by ruining americans' lives.
