” I really am interested on this hydroxychloroquine,” McCaskill highlighted. “I’m interested to ask Jonathan Lemire, as he’s in journalism room and as he’s working his sources and his news agency is working sources. I’m assuming there’s investigative types out there following the money on hydroxy, because it’s the only thing that makes sense, you understand. You know, does Putin have a stake in hydroxy? You understand, is the Deutsche Bank backing hydroxy?”
She continued, “It is baffling to me that there is such a chorus within the Trump base and the Trump media outlets and Trump about this drug. It has to be money. Is someone taking a look at that?
