Impeachment Lawyer Daniel Goldman Says He Has Cononavirus

The top lawyer for Democrats during the House impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump said that he tested positive for coronavirus, just days after Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) confirmed that a Democratic staffer contracted the virus.

“My COVID-19 test came back positive. I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support. It means a lot to my family and me,” he wrote on Twitter. “I am almost back to 100 percent. Im lucky enough not to fall in the vulnerable category and, for me, it was just like the flu.”

Goldman, who conducted most of the questioning for the House Intelligence Committees Democratic witnesses late last year, said he has had difficulty in getting tested for the virus, which emerged in mainland China last year.

“My difficulty in getting a test despite the exact symptoms and a negative flu test underscores how shockingly unprepared this administration is to deal with this pandemic. In fact, I was told that NYC hospitals STILL would not test my wife—with similar symptoms—unless admitted,” the lawyer wrote.
