President Trump said much has been learned in how to handle the “China Virus,” which he said should not have been allowed to escape China, as reflected by those graphics.
The focus, per the president, will be to finish the development of one or more vaccines, which he said are getting close. He spoke about therapeutics, protecting lives, and by returning the economy to its prior high levels.

Where Business, Politics and Investing Can Meet
“It’s all starting … to unravel, and I tell you, it’s time for people to go to jail and be indicted,” Mike Meadows, former congressman and President Donald J. Trump’s Chief of staff (COS) said Sunday on Sunday Morning Futures with right-of-center Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo’s
While several topics were covered in the interview, perhaps the biggest newsmakers was COS Meadows saying that it’s time for people to go to jail as a result of U.S. attorney John Durham’s probe into the origins of the Russia investigation.
During the interview Sunday, right-of-center OAN noted that Meadows suggested that from what he’s seen so far he believes several individuals involved in the investigation into Russian interference and alleged collusion will end up with charges being leveled against them.
For the millions who don’t realize that Russia interfered in the 2016 election cycle but did so without collusion with the Trump campaign, the thought that some public officials may get indicted for illegal abuse of authority may be a shock. While Americans were charged with process and other crimes, none where charged for a crime related to the premise of the Robert Mueller probe, which was predicated on what Attorney General William Barr has said was apparently improper “spying” on the Trump campaign without a proper predicate.
Meadows, who formally served on the House Oversight Committee, said that the DOJ’s Durham has found evidence that the Obama-era FBI improperly spied on the 2016 Trump campaign. He noted that despite the fact that Democrats knew there was no collusion early on, they continued with former special counsel Mueller’s probe regardless.
The chief of staff’s comments came after Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsay Graham released two recently declassified documents last week, which suggest FBI officials were skeptical of reports in early 2017 of contact between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence officials.
Those documents included an interview with a source for former British spy Christopher Steele. That source appeared to cast doubt on the accuracy of the British ex-spy’s controversial and often debunked “dossier.”
While speaking on those findings, Graham said it’s time for those responsible to finally be held accountable.
“And what I’m dying to find out is why did the system continue to use a document in April and June of 2017 to get a warrant against Carter Page when they were told in January 2017 by the man who prepared it that its a bunch of garbage?” Graham stated, per OAN. “I’m gonna get to the bottom of this, I’m gonna hold people accountable and let the chips fall where they may.”
President Trump also touched on the recent documents and suggested even though Obama-era officials were caught spying on his campaign, nothing is happening to them. He noted that if it were the other way around, it would be much different.
So we catch Obama & Biden, not to even mention the rest of their crew, SPYING on my campaign, AND NOTHING HAPPENS? I hope not! If it were the other way around, 50 years for treason. NEVER FORGET!!!!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 19, 2020
Meadows went on to say new documents may be released in the coming days that will not only show that the Trump campaign was spied on, but will show the FBI did not act appropriately in its investigation. Meanwhile, Durham’s report is expected to be released by the end of this summer. The video interview is shown below.
This may well become part of the “October Surprise” that every major campaign hopes to unleash in the weeks before an election, hoping to shift votes or discourage the opposition’s base from turning out as strongly as they otherwise would. With approaching only 100 days to the November 3 vote, Campaign 2020 will be increasingly important for professionals and investors to watch and share reports about.
