President Donald Trump has blasted Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for using the coronavirus pandemic to launch a partisan "witch hunt" against him while America battles one of its worst-ever crises.

The president ripped Pelosi on Thursday for creating a new select investigative House committee to probe his handling of the Chinese coronavirus crisis.

"This is not the time for politics,” Trump said at the White House press briefing.

"Endless, partisan investigations, here we go again."

On Thursday, Democrats announced they would create a new select committee to investigate the Trump Administration’s response efforts and the management of the $2 trillion economic relief package.

“Where there’s money, there’s also frequently mischief,” Pelosi said while announcing the creation of the committee.

The president expressed revulsion that Pelosi is launching another “witch hunt” investigation during a crisis in the country where partisan politics are not helpful.

“It’s witch hunt after witch hunt after witch hunt," he said.

"And in the end it’s people doing the witch hunt who are losing,” he said.

Trump then called the new committee a “big waste of vital resources, time, and attention.”

The new House committee will “examine all aspects of the federal response to the coronavirus and ensure the taxpayer’s dollars are being wisely and efficiently spent,” Pelosi told reporters during a Thursday conference call.

"The panel will root out waste, fraud, and abuse; it will protect against price-gauging, profiteering, and political favoritism,” the speaker continued.

The panel will be chaired by House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC).

The development comes after anti-Trump House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced that he will introduce legislation to create a “nonpartisan” commission to examine the government’s response to the coronavirus crisis.

“After Pearl Harbor and 9/11, we looked at what went wrong to learn from our mistakes,” Schiff, who led the House Democrats’ impeachment effort as the outbreak started to spread, tweeted on Wednesday.

“Once we’ve recovered, we need a nonpartisan commission to review our response and how we can better prepare for the next pandemic.”

“I’m working on a bill to do that,” he added.
