President Donald Trump complained about congressional investigations during his Thursday Coronavirus Task Force briefing.

Trump argued that Congress should not investigate the multiple failures of Trump’s response to the pandemic that have been the focus of shocking reporting in recent months.

“You see what happens, it is witch hunt after witch hunt, and in the end, the people doing the witch hunts have been losing,” he argued. “And they’ve been losing by a lot.”
