GOP Sen Calls For Investigation After Kushner Said Federal Stockpiles Aren’t For State Use

A new report revealed on Friday that Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) is now pushing for an investigation into possible mismanagement of the Strategic National Stockpile of ventilators needed to treat coronavirus patients.

Gardner’s push comes after the Trump administration claimed that the federal stockpile of ventilators did not belong to the states.

According to Politico:

“The GOP senator wrote a letter to the Health and Human Services inspector general on Thursday requesting a probe into reports of maintenance issues and delays regarding the distribution of ventilators from the national stockpile to states.”

Gardner was interviewed about the issue on Friday, he said that “any kind of mismanagement or abuse needs to be rooted out and those responsible held accountable.”

Gardner’s call came after Jared Kushner, a senior White House aide and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, said on Thursday that the federal stockpile of supplies is “supposed to be our stockpile” and that it’s “not supposed to be states’ stockpiles that they then use.”

While Gardner claims that his call for an investigation isn’t in direct response to Kushner’s comments, he did say that the senior White House adviser should be called into question.

“I don’t know what Kushner was talking about, what he meant. But the stockpile is for the country. And the country is made up of states in the federal government,” Gardner said.
