In his testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in response to excellent questioning from Senator Tom Udall (D-NM), that the data on COVID-19 from either Japan, South Korea, or the EU was “worthless”.
“They’re not tracking. They’re not counting cases.” “So putting forward that data in a senate hearing is just silly,” Pompeo bullied.
Really, Secretary Pompeo?
Is it Japan, South Korea, or the EU that provides “worthless” COVID-19 data?
Is it Japan, South Korea, or the EU that is “not tracking” and “not counting” cases?
This is, at a minimum, a disgraceful lack of candor by Secretary Pompeo under oath.
To be clear, South Korea, Japan, and the EU are not only tracking and counting cases, they are doing a much better job of it than we are.
It is difficult to believe that Secretary Pompeo does not know this.
