Former Secret Service agent and Fox News contributor Dan Bongino made a stunning claim on Monday. The conservative political commentator called out California Democrat and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. As well as her party allies on Capitol Hill.
In his Monday podcast, Bongino told viewers that Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi, are currently laying the groundwork for their next investigation of President Trump. It will be a two-fold attack based on Trump’s early denial that the coronavirus posed a serious threat to the U.S. and his administration’s delays of essential medical supplies to those on the frontlines.
Speaker Pelosi further claims that Trump’s denial was “deadly” plus “his delaying of getting…equipment to where it is…it continues [sic] his delay in getting equipment to where it is needed is deadly…We have to have testing, testing, testing, that’s what we said from the start.” Then inquired, “What did the scientists say to him? When did the President know about this and what did he know? What did he know and when did he know it? That’s…for an after-action review. But as the President fiddles, people are dying. And we have to, we just have to take every precaution.”
As Bongino breaks it down:
This is truly astonishing how Nancy Pelosi is rewriting history now on CNN. Rewriting history. This same awful, lying political hack who tweeted on January 31…this is the same woman who, when Trump, responding to intelligence that the Wuhan virus was coming here, instituted a travel ban from that place and others. This is the same Pelosi who called it racist. Who is now claiming in her two-prong attack, they’re getting ready…They are preparing right now for another investigation into Trump and their attack is going to be two-fold…number one is going to be denial [of the evidence] and number two is going to be delay [of equipment].
In the coming weeks, the House will bring the NO BAN Act to the Floor to prohibit religious discrimination in our immigration system and limit the President’s ability to impose such biased and bigoted restrictions. https://t.co/prysRGMwzh

And he stated, “This is the new media narrative. Listen to Nancy Pelosi. Don’t listen to me…They are now into – already – the attack on Trump rather than trying to solve this crisis. They’re already setting you up. And morons like the now dumbest man in media, Chuck Todd, are getting ready to parrot the denial/delay talking points. Chuck Todd goes even a step further asking Sleepy Joe, in an interview, if Trump has blood on his hands.”
Bongino also alleged:
The Democrats are not interested at all in getting through this…led by Pelosi who is an awful, awful human being…They are preparing now. They are allocating their time in one of the great generational crises we’ve had to deal with. Financial, economic and healthwise. What are they wasting their time on now? The political attack’s coming the minute we mitigate this crisis. That’s what they’re doing.
He later examined a corresponding claim that President Trump denied the intelligence. As he carefully debunked this as well. But even so they may likely proceed anyway.
