New evidence shows Trump appointees' political interference with CDC weekly Covid data reports, Hous

Source: CNN

House subcommittee says

A Democratic-led House select committee says it has uncovered evidence of political interference by the Trump administration into the federal government's coronavirus response last year, including attempts to alter or block data reports from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention detailing the dire effects of the virus.

A new document released Tuesday details the pressure that career officials faced from a Trump administration political appointee to change portions of the CDC's crucial Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), which laid out Covid deaths, hospitalizations and infections during the pandemic.

The new document also corroborates testimony given last year from a career CDC official who said she was ordered to destroy evidence of the request, according to the committee.

The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis is now requesting interviews with nearly a dozen former Trump political appointees and current officials, sending letters Tuesday to the individuals and the CDC and US Department of Health and Human Services.

if repukes can investigate four deaths we can investigate over 600,000 deaths (if that is even close to the real number)

9. What might land them in the most legal hot water if its true is the part about

being ordered to destroy evidence as that is a major no no if I am not mistaken.

16. That's what I was thinking. So much shady actions throughout the trump

administration... We will never know the complete picture. The corruption and crimes run too deep and through every agency.

17. Considering how many Republican co-conspirators in the Senate and House are actively working against

our country along with hostile foreign governments to cover it up you might very well be right about not ever knowing the complete picture.

18. My heart was broken a little piece at a time with every horrible

story that came out over the trump years, and continues to come out. I still believe in our Democratic leaders and our Democratic voters. Now that we have non political folks back in our agencies, I have faith once again in our legal process, plus, throughout the trump post election horror show, our courts held. I am optimistic, but still so sad for the horror show that was, and continues to be the party of trump.

Take care.
