Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) appeared on ‘FOX & Friends’ where she spoke about holding the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) accountable for intentionally allowing COVID-19 to spread globally in order to inflict economic pain on the rest of the world
STEVE DOOCY: I know you are part of a task force regarding China, and how China has deceived the United States of America, and apparently there’s now a story out in The Washington Post and The New York Times that says the administration is about to accuse Chinese hackers and other entities like that of trying to steal our secrets as we rush to figure out how to make a vaccine REP. LIZ CHENEY: Yeah, look, I think there’s no question, the Chinese Communist Party, the Chinese government is absolutely directly responsible for this pandemic for the deaths, for the economic devastation that we’re seeing. I think they clearly decided at some point, when they knew that they had human-to-human transmission in Wuhan, they understood that the economic devastation was going to be huge. I think they believed that they would rather have that spread around the globe than simply something that they suffered from. So we watched them stop travel from Wuhan into the rest of China, but then let the travel continue around the world. There’s no question they caused this virus to be spread. They have to be held accountable, and I think that their role in the world, the extent to which they clearly cannot continue to be a member of the civilized community of nations, because of what they’ve done, because of the lies. It’s something that we’ve got to take a very close look at. I think you’re going to see across-the-board steps both to make sure that we move our supply chain, steps to ensure that they do not have the seat at the table that they have had in the past, steps to ensure that we educate the American people so that they understand the vast array of steps the government of China has been taking for so many years now, really to try to defeat us. We’ve got to make sure we’re defending ourselves and that the United States leads the free world. The world has got to live by rules set by countries that believe in freedom, not set by the Communist Chinese Party.
