The Democrat Party has spent months covering up an explosive scandal.
That time is coming to an end.
Four top Democrats just got this letter that has them worried about prison.
During the coronavirus outbreak in America, about 45 percent of all fatalities occurred in nursing homes where just .06 percent of Americans reside.
Elderly Americans with preexisting conditions are the most vulnerable to the coronavirus which is why the outbreak ran like wildfire through nursing homes.
Four Democrat governors – those in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan – made the disastrous decision in the early days of the outbreak to mandate nursing homes take in coronavirus patients.
These orders amounted to death warrants for thousands of elderly Americans.
But now these Democrat governors may face accountability.
The Justice Department sent a letter to the governors of New York, New Jersey, Michigan and Pennsylvania asking for their cooperation in an investigation into orders turning nursing homes into death traps by mandating they take in coronavirus patients.
“Today the Justice Department requested COVID-19 data from the governors of states that issued orders which may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents. New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan required nursing homes to admit COVID-19 patients to their vulnerable populations, often without adequate testing,” the Justice Department wrote.
The Justice Department laid out the rationale behind the investigation.
“According to the Centers for Disease Control, New York has the highest number of COVID-19 deaths in the United States, with 32,592 victims, many of them elderly. New York’s death rate by population is the second highest in the country with 1,680 deaths per million people. New Jersey’s death rate by population is 1,733 deaths per million people – the highest in the nation. In contrast, Texas’s death rate by population is 380 deaths per million people; and Texas has just over 11,000 deaths, though its population is 50 percent larger than New York and has many more recorded cases of COVID-19 – 577,537 cases in Texas versus 430,885 cases in New York. Florida’s COVID-19 death rate is 480 deaths per million; with total deaths of 10,325 and a population slightly larger than New York,” the Justice Department letter continued.
The Justice Department also explained the possible violations of the law it was investigating.
“The Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division is evaluating whether to initiate investigations under the federal ‘Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act’ (CRIPA), which protects the civil rights of persons in state-run nursing homes, among others. The Civil Rights Division seeks to determine if the state orders requiring admission of COVID-19 patients to nursing homes is responsible for the deaths of nursing home residents,” the letter added.
The fake news media blames President Trump for each death related to the coronavirus.
But Democrat governors’ disastrous decision to impose mandates on nursing homes to take in coronavirus patients left the elderly defenseless in virtual COVID-19 killing fields.
And now they may be held accountable for their negligence.
