Because of the policies of blue state governors like Andrew Cuomo in New York, Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan, Tom Wolf in Pennsylvania, and Phil Murphy in New Jersey, tens of thousands of people died of COVID in nursing homes.
This is one of the deadliest scandals in America in decades, and they’re going to get away with it.
The Biden Justice Department has decided not to even investigate these states.
This is outrageous.
The Federalist reports:
Biden DOJ Won’t Investigate Deadly Nursing Home Policies In These Democrat-Run States
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has formally declined to investigate nursing homes policies in New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan that led to thousands of senior citizens needlessly dying throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Democrat Govs. Andrew Cuomo of New York, Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, and Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan were informed in writing this week from the DOJ Civil Rights Division that nursing home investigations launched by former President Donald Trump will be closed. In August 2020, Trump’s DOJ told the three Democrat governors, as well as New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, to provide data sets regarding nursing home fatalities. Murphy’s state has not yet been notified by Biden’s DOJ.
Cuomo, Wolf, and Whitmer especially have been lambasted for sending COVID-positive seniors back to nursing homes. Last month, for instance, Michigan’s auditor general reportedly launched an investigation into Whitmer’s role in the significant number of long-term care facility deaths.
Republican Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana released this statement:
“Where is the justice for nursing home victims and their grieving families?” Scalise said. “Grieving families deserve answers and accountability. It’s unconscionable that Biden’s Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly actions that went against CDC’s medical guidance taken in these states.”
These people made decisions that killed people. Thousands of them.
The Justice Department has decided not to open a civil rights investigation into government-run nursing homes in New York over their COVID-19 response, according to a letter sent Friday to several Republican members of Congress. https://t.co/xmbW2SWAeh
