Summary

Link CopiedNew evidence of political interference in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s early pandemic response raised fresh questions in Congress on Friday on how to prevent future meddling and strengthen public trust in the health agency.Emails detailing how Trump administration officials intervened to take out “offensive” language that raised “religious liberty concerns” from CDC guidance to faith communities in May 2020 were released by the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis ahead of a Friday hearing on the scientific integrity of public health agencies.“As Americans were dying by the thousands, then-President Trump and his political appointees made the calculation that his re-election would be more likely if the seriousness of the pandemic were downplayed,” Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), the subcommittee’s chair, said in an opening statement.
