加州参议员称中国为“受尊敬的国家”，已使数千万人摆脱贫困 Feinstein: Letting Americans sue China over coronavirus response would be 'huge mistake' 费恩斯坦：让美国人就冠状病毒反应起诉中国是“巨大的错误”
Allowing citizens to sue China for damages caused by the novel coronavirus would backfire and open up the United States to the same level of scrutiny from other countries around the world, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Thursday.
Feinstein, whose remarks came during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, said, "We launch a series of unknown events that could be very, very dangerous. I think this is a huge mistake."
"Where I live... we hold China as a potential trading partner," she said earlier. "As a country that has pulled tens of millions of people out of poverty in a short period of time. And as a country growing into a respectable nation among other nations. And I deeply believe that. I've been to China a number of times. I've studied the issues."
Feinstein claimed other countries, including China, may decide to use the new legal precedent against the U.S., setting off a chain reaction, resulting in global chaos.
Her comments come three months after Missouri's Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a Republican, provided a statement to Fox News about a lawsuit he filed against China on behalf of the state, saying that the impact of COVID-19 has led to thousands of Missourians being infected, killed and economically devastated.
"In Missouri, the impact of the virus is very real -- thousands have been infected and many have died, families have been separated from dying loved ones, small businesses are shuttering their doors, and those living paycheck to paycheck are struggling to put food on their table," he wrote.
AMERICANS BLAME CHINA FOR ITS ROLE IN THE SPREAD OF CORONAVIRUS, SURVEY FINDS
Sen. Dianne Feinstein says defunding police 'is not' something she supportsVideo After the lawsuit was filed, an article posted on the Global Times, which is a branch of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP's) People's Daily, said the nation is "extremely dissatisfied with the abuse of litigation" by U.S. leadership," and is considering punitive countermeasures against U.S. individuals, entities and state officials, including Schmitt.
As the partisan divide with respect to China continues to deepen, Democrats have refrained from condemning the CCP's actions while Senate Republicans -- along with members of the Trump administration -- have chosen to take the Chinese government head-on.
In addition to Schmitt's efforts, GOP Sens. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., and Rich Scott, R-Fla., have been publically critical of the CCP, with Scott going so far as to introduce a Senate bill to shield vaccine research from Chinese spies and infiltrators.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has also taken a hardline stance against China, warning state governors of China's sophisticated practices with regard to U.S. infiltration and later claiming the CCP poses a real "risk" to the safety and security of America.
In 2018, President Trump slammed Feinstein for having a Chinese spy on her staff serving as her driver. Feinstein was said to have been “mortified” when she learned the news, according to Politico. The FBI wasn’t able to charge the individual, but Feinstein “forced him to retire,” a source told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Feinstein's comments come as the results of a new Pew Research Center survey were released, showing that over three-quarters of American adults blame the Chinese government for the global spread of the coronavirus and over 60 percent of respondents said the country has done a poor job handling the aftermath of the outbreak.
The survey, which polled 1,003 individuals and was conducted from June 16 to July 14, showed 73 percent of U.S. adults have an unfavorable view of China, which marks the most negative rating in the 15 years that Pew Research Center has been conducting polling on the subject.

参议员戴安娜·费恩斯坦（Dianne Feinstein）说，资助警察“不是”她支持的事情 提起诉讼后，中共《人民日报》的分支机构《环球时报》发表了一篇文章，称该国“对美国领导层滥用诉讼感到极为不满”，并正在考虑针对包括施密特在内的美国个人，实体和州官员的惩罚性对策。
费恩斯坦发表上述评论之际，皮尤研究中心（Pew Research Center）进行了一项新调查，结果显示，超过四分之三的美国成年人将冠状病毒在全球的传播归咎于中国政府，超过60％的受访者表示，中国做得很差处理爆发的后果。
该调查于6月16日至7月14日进行，共调查了1,003个人，结果显示73％的美国成年人对中国持不利看法，这是皮尤研究中心（Pew Research Center）进行的15年来最负面的评价。学科。
