ABSTRACT

Supplemental Memorandum on Investigation into Political Interference with Coronavirus Response   [open pdf - 346KB]

From the Document: "This memorandum describes evidence recently obtained by the Select Subcommittee showing that a Trump Administration appointee at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Senior Advisor Paul Alexander, privately strategized with other top Administration officials as far back as June 2020 about pursuing a so-called 'herd immunity' strategy in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Dr. Alexander explicitly endorsed allowing the disease to spread widely among '[i]nfants, kids, teens, young people, young adults, middle aged with no conditions etc.,' writing, 'we use them to develop herd…we want them infected.' The views expressed in these private communications were later echoed by President Trump and other officials, raising the serious possibility that key Administration officials have pursued a deliberate or reckless policy of allowing Americans to be infected with the coronavirus."
