A whistleblower report shows that volunteers on Jared Kushner’s taskforce lacked experience in healthcare and supply-chain management -- which is necessary to procure PPE.
"Americans are facing a crisis of tragic proportions, and there is an urgent need for an effective, efficient and bold response. From my few weeks as a volunteer, I believe we are falling short," the complaint read. "I am writing to alert my representatives of these challenges and to ask that they do everything possible to help front-line health-care workers and other Americans in need."
According to the report, the committee can be seen handling the crisis by prioritizing personal connections by fast tracking access to PPE.
“The allegations range to nepotism. Some volunteers were instructed to prioritize leads from Trump-connected "VIPs," including conservative journalists, the whistleblower claimed.
The complaint specific cites two Fox News personalities: "Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade, who contacted the administration with a lead for purchasing PPE, and Jeanine Pirro, who "repeatedly lobbed" the squad to deliver large shipments of masks to an unnamed New York hospital.
A Fox News spokesperson told The Post that Kilmeade and Pirro were unaware that Kushner had fast-traced their requests ahead of others.”
