Alaska’s AG signs letter, asks for investigation of China

Attorney General Kevin Clarkson joined an 18-state effort calling on Congress to investigate the communist Chinese government’s role in the COVID-19 pandemic.

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson led the effort, sending the letter Friday to the leadership of the House and Senate Foreign Relations Committees, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and other House and Senate leaders asking for a Congressional investigation.  

The link to the letter is here.

“As chief legal officer of Alaska, I join other attorneys general around the nation in asking our congressional leaders to hold China accountable for its actions,” Clarkson wrote in a statement.

“Recent reports suggest that the communist Chinese government willfully and knowingly concealed information about the severity of the virus while simultaneously stockpiling personal protective equipment.”  

“In what Secretary of State Pompeo has described as a ‘classic communist disinformation effort,’ the Chinese government, aided by the World Health Organization, appears to have intentionally misled the world over the last six months.”

The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus is nearly 80,000 and the pandemic’s economic devastation has caused the unemployment rate to skyrocket from 3.5 percent in February to its current rate of 14.7 percent. The Chinese government’s mishandling and deliberate deception has caused death and hardship for millions of Americans, Clarkson said.

“Congressional hearings are critical to our understanding of the origins of COVID-19 and efforts by the Chinese government to hide facts from the international community,” Clarkson said.

In addition to Alaska, the attorneys general who signed the letter include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia.

  • Trump already did it. Johnny come lately.

  • Curious as to why the states supposedly hit hardest, NY, IL, CA, MA etc haven’t signed on?

    I have a theory, but, let’s see what the MRAK world thinks.

    • Google “Chimerica” for starters.

    • I suspect some see through the fallacious attempt of blame shifting.

  • Why not start with Dr. Fauci and see why he was able to outsource virus research to Wuhan?
    “The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded bat-coronavirus research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China to the tune of US $3.7 million, a recent article in the British newspaper Daily Mail revealed…
    Back in October 2014, the US government had placed a federal moratorium on gain-of-function (GOF) research – altering natural pathogens to make them more deadly and infectious…”

  • How about something like “Alaska’s AG signs letter, asks for investigation of confidential elements of the Alaska-Communist China pipeline deal in which the Communist Chinese apparently get 75% of Alaska’s natural gas”
    .
    …or maybe “Alaska’s AG signs letter, asks for grand-jury investigation of the Great Alaska LeDoux Vote Experiment”
    .
    …or “Alaska’s AG signs letter, asks for an investigation of apparent theft of Ravn Air’s assets by North Slope Borough officials”?
    .
    Nah… too close to home, right? While chasing Commies, do remember the Municipality of Anchorage just received a shipment of Personal Protective Equipment from its sister city, Harbin, (Communist) China: 10,000 medical masks and 1,000 surgical gowns.
    .
    What do you think, Mr. AG? Gonna make the Municipality of Anchorage give ’em back? How’ll you check ’em out, make real damned sure they’re not defective? Health-industry racket’s gonna peddle ’em for a huge profit?
    .
    You just keep investigating China while what looks a hell of a lot like the twenty-first century version of the Five Families robs Alaska blind, wrecks her economy, trashes the Constitution.
    .
    Parlay the China investigation into money for the Families, maybe there’s a governorship under the Christmas tree… after Mike gets thrown out, of course.
    .
    Could happen…

    • Sounds like you need to get your own blog instead of ragging on Suzanne for her choice of stories.

  • What motivation would an AG have?
    Criminal indictments would open up the possibility of asset forfeiture of Chinese national and private assets in America
    Much of the monies from these asset forfeitures would end up in state coffers, police and courts.
    Follow the money!

  • Clarkson is true to form, he’s signed on to another misapprehension and false interpretation of reality.

    He’s bound to lose just as he’s lost every other case he’s brought.

    Most consistent loser in Alaska courts, heck of a reputation to carry around.

  • Investigate Fauci, Zink, WHO, and the CDC for their roles in this global Fakedemic.

    • Yeah, it’s all been a big sham. Tell that to the dead folks and their families.

  • How about no? This is a waste of time and money pontificating on a known situation. Let Trump keep pushing China economically and get on with life. This is just political grandstanding which will illicit zero positive effect.

  • Based on a chunk of the commentary bong water drinking must be a thing now.

    .

    Between the conspiracy theories, the sov cuts and militia LARPers it cannot simply be something in the drinking water.

  • There’s a Chinese politician with a choice retort rattling around in his head…

    “Here I sit in the smallest room in the house with your letter before me. Soon it will be behind me”.

    – W Churchill

  • This is NOT a bat stew virus. No evidence exists whatsoever to show that bats were sold in the Wuhan Market. This is a convenient diversion to fit a narrative. THIS is a man-crafted laboratory-produced pathogen that escaped from the lab. The Chinese were reckless. Now we are seeing a cover-up by the Chinese so as not to be fully responsible for the havock and destruction placed on the entire world. Only the far Left-wing media and politically-correct sympathizers of the West will disagree.

    • I’m not so sure they didn’t do it on purpose.

    • I’m guessing you might have a doctorate in english lit or similar. Your comment is strikingly subjective and not something that would be spawned from a science oriented mind. You finish it off by stating things as fact that you cannot know. Making things up is always an option but informed decisions are better. Try it sometime.

      • He and I are correct though. What’s your point?

        • My point is that neither of you have any idea what you’re talking about and are pulling conspiracy theory BS directly out of your heinder while stating it as fact. Someone that ponders such concepts can be thought of as confused but interested in understanding. Someone that states conspiracy theory BS as fact falls into a more narrow category that contains idiots, liars, and whatever can fit in the small space between them.

          If that comment is tough to understand try reading it slowly while moving your lips.

          • Pull your trousers up and quit barking up the wrong tree. One can follow the trail of known evidence and produce a theory, and a likely conclusion, without being dressed down by Lefties like you, Trouserbark. The Chinese cut-off all domestic flights out of the Wuhan area in January, but NOT international flights. Reckless. The Chinese failed to apprise other nations of a likely pathogen on the loose. Reckless. The Chinese covered-up the essential information about the virus. Purposely. The Chinese silenced their own doctors and scientists. Purposely. The genome sequencing of a known Wuhan bat from a 2013 study in China is mysteriously similar to the sequencing of a lab produced pathogen several years later, but given a different scientific
            designation. Reckless or purposely? Woof-woof……

      • Trouser: I’ve reviewed your comments and you consistently come across as a “junk yard dog”. You attack other commentators opinions willy-nilly. If they’re on the left, you attack. If they’re on the right, you attack.
        Perhaps you think that your contrariness is valid because there are some others like-minded commenting. You chime in and validate their views, and they reciprocate.
        While the subject matter may vary, the one common chord between y’all is racism. It appears to be so ingrained that it’s not merely what you believe, it’s what you are.
        Incorrigible would explain why you were banned several times from ADN. You didn’t learn from the first times.

  • But…but…I thought we had been investigating Russia-Russia-Russia “collusion” for the past three years? This might divert our attention away from that, right?

    There will be investigations concerning China’s role in the release of the Wuhan Virus. And their influence on the World Health Organization and their Incomprehensible response to the start of the epidemic. Equally important should be an examination of China’s influence on our culture, political figures, academia, media etc. While we were trying to hang Russia-Russia-Russia on the Trump administration, the real danger is China. There is nothing that the Chinese Communist Party wouldn’t do to ensure world predominance. It’s time for Americans to understand that.

    • Yes. Should have let the Japanese finish them off before fat man and little boy.

    • We got that 65 years ago, when just a few years after we saved them from the Japs, they turned on us. We got it then, and we get it now.
