State of Missouri Suing China for Coronavirus Coverup

The lawsuit is the first of its kind.

Published

on

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a federal lawsuit against the People’s Republic of China on Tuesday, claiming the Chinese government oversaw a coverup of the coronavirus disease that has led to significant damages for Missouri and for the world.

Schmitt’s lawsuit claims “an appalling campaign of deceit, concealment, misfeasance, and inaction by Chinese authorities unleashed this pandemic.”

The Attorney General cites China’s pervasive censorship of the coronavirus disease, most notably refusing to admit that the virus could be transferred from one human to another when it became obvious.

“In mid-January, on or around January 16, despite knowing the risks of doing so, Wuhan leaders hosted a potluck dinner for 40,000 residents, increasing the potential spread of the virus.Schmitt accuses China of refusing to enact necessary safety measures to deter the spread of the disease. “Defendants allowed these massive public gatherings and massive exodus from Wuhan despite knowing the risks of COVID-19, including the risk of human-to-human transmission.”

The lawsuit cites the wide-ranging economic damage incurred by Missouri as a result of the coronavirus epidemic, which now has the highest unemployment rates the state has ever seen since the Great Depression. More than 6,000 cases of the virus have been diagnosed in the state, and almost 230 people have died of coronavirus.

Securing compensation from China within the U.S. federal court system will be an uphill battle. Foreign nations have wide-ranging protections as a result of foreign immunity, although some of the entities Schmitt is litigating against are nominally private organizations that are de facto Chinese government controlled.

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has proposed federal legislation that would strip legal immunity from the authoritarian communist Chinese government, making them liable to civil claims from coronavirus victims in a manner similar to the 2016 Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act.

NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine

Completely inappropriate.

Published

on

Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.

In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.

In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.

A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.

Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.

This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
