Republicans can’t miss the moment to hold COVID regimes accountable, as well as defend their own freedoms. Even the slightest oversight about COVID is an attack on liberty itself, as well as the principles of transparency that should be essential to government function.
But for many years, as well as during the COVID pandemic, Trump has been working on a plan to roll back America’s civil liberties, while simultaneously threatening to lock down the nation to deal with the virus.
