“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.
“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,” Schiff added.

CRENSHAW RIPS CLINTON: Rep. Crenshaw Blasts Hillary’s Coronavirus Response Criticism
Rep. Dan Crenshaw ripped Hillary Clinton’s vicious criticism of the Trump administration’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic after she demanded the country “replace this man in November.”
“Denial? From the man who restricted travel in January & saved lives, while your party celebrated his impeachment? You may be confusing him with the Washington Post, telling America to get a grip, that COVID19 wasn’t scary, & that we should be wary of an aggressive govt response,” posted Crenshaw on social media.
