Representative Adam Schiff is now trying to argue that the number of coronavirus deaths can be linked to the failure to remove President Trump from office.
According to Town Hall:
During an appearance on MSNBC Monday night, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff argued that Wuhan coronavirus victims are in a sense victims of the failed impeachment of President Trump, which on some days is “equivalent of the number of people we lost on 9/11.”
“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,” anchor Lawrence O’Donnell told the House Intelligence Committee chairman.
“Well, we certainly told the senators that he was not going to change, and there was no way to constrain him,” Schiff replied. “That he is who he is, and he would continue to operate the way he had, and indeed, that’s exactly what we’ve seen since. 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?’”
He continued, “We said a lot, but little did we know just how great the casualties would be. 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.”

The only direct evidence available to connect to the worldwide death toll is the fact that China lied.
