A Democrat lawmaker from Ohio claimed that she is going to refer President Trump to the International Court in Hague for crimes against humanity.
“I can’t take it anymore,” Ohio Democrat Tavia Galonski tweeted Sunday, hours after a White House press conference. “I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow.” Galonski was replying to a tweet saying the Trump administration should be prosecuted for touting the possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine.
I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow. Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one. https://t.co/XQin24gqY4

Shortly after her announcement Galonski was interviewed by the Ohio Capital Journal who asked if she was serious:
“Yes!” When pressed, she seemed uncertain how to go about it.
“I honestly have no idea,” Galonski said. “But how hard can it be?”
President Trump has touted the drug as a possible remedy for helping patient battle hydroxychloroquine. The President said on Sunday that all he wants to do is save lives after a heated exchange with CNN’s Jeremy Diamond.
“Why not just let the science speak for itself? Why are you promoting this drug?” Diamond asked.
“I’m trying to save lives,” the president said, noting that the federal government was purchasing the drugs in mass quantities.
He admitted that hydroxychloroquine might not work, but he does not want to wait a year for clinical tests.
“If it doesn’t work, it’s nothing lost by doing it,” Trump said. “Nothing.”
The president answered several questions about hydroxychloroquine but ultimately repeated that it was worth trying.
“I don’t want to wait a year and a half to find out, and only CNN would ask that question,” he concluded. “Fake news.”
President Trump is asked why he ‘promotes’ Hydroxychloroquine.
Trump: “I want to save lives. I don’t want it to be in a lab for the next year and a half as people are dying all over the place… and only CNN would ask that question. Fake News.”
