 The Pentagon is exposed to spend hundreds of millions of dollars in anti epidemic funds on defense, and US Congressmen launch an investigation


The letter pointed out that these funds are to support the production and distribution of urgently needed medical supplies and personal protective equipment, many of which are in short supply. However, the Ministry of defense has transferred a large part of these funds to defense contractors.

The letter was sent by James kleburne, chairman of the new coronavirus crisis sub committee of the house of Representatives, Justin waters, chairman of the Financial Services Committee of the house of Representatives, Caroline Maloney, chairman of the oversight committee, and Stephen Lynch, chairman of the national security sub committee of the house of Representatives oversight committee.

The Washington Post exposed the scandal of the US Department of defense in September. In response, the Pentagon has argued that the money was not intended to be used to buy medical supplies, but to make Congress fully aware of the plan and help defense industrial bases survive the pandemic period. However, US Congressmen pointed out that the shortage of medical supplies and personal protective equipment continued for more than six months after the trump administration announced the state of emergency earlier. Although the US Department of Defenses move may be to alleviate the financial crisis under the epidemic situation, it is still inappropriate. US media said that according to the contents of the letters from members, the US Department of defense should provide relevant information before October 16, explaining the use of funds and solving problems.
