US intelligence warned in Nov on coronavirus spread

As per ABC News report, US intel officials warned in Nov that the coronavirus spreading in China’s Hubei region could become a ’disastrous event. It further stated that policymakers, decision makers & the National Security Council at the White House were repeatedly briefed on this issue. However the coronavirus appeared in the President’s Daily Brief of intelligence matters only in early Jan.

Who wants to bet that the Democrats would've lost their shit if Trump tried to prepare back in November given how they reacted in Janurary? It's kinda hard to take them seriously when they forget that the internet is forever.

Ignoring that this information means very little overall, there is zero link to the original source being described in these articles. Hell ABC is seemingly citing themselves with most of their embedded links.

I love these "news stories " that have 0 evidence. other Then some unnamed source. Must be nice to be a journalist these days and just write about anything you want without actually having a single provable fact.

So if I understand this correctly. Someone decided that President Trump didn’t needed to be briefed on this information. Someone needs to be held responsible if that is true.

Apparently the Deep State didn't handle this virus thing very well. They should be fired!

From what I gather the intelligence agencies said, in Nov 2019, that it COULD become a problem. What's the right response to something that "could " happen? Seems all the arm-chair quarterback find it easy to criticize now.

Of course those of us with a working brain knew this to be the case. US intelligence have many eyes on the ground in China, they knew how bad it could be and they did their job in relaying that back to Washington. Washington sat on it.

That report is key in the mess surrounding uss tr.... Because it demonstrates the the ex sec of navy had. A duty to cancel all on shore passes way way before tr ever docked in Nam... He didn't have to say why but he should have. Just like those on posts all over world.... Never was done... N that I bet is why his letter of reg was swiftly accepted
