Lieu responds to Roy remarks about hearing: ‘I’m very aware of who the bad guys are’

Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas — a member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties —criticized the panel's probe of discrimination, citing free speech concerns. Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., a guest speaker at the hearing, responded that the session was about Asian Americans and condemned those who use racist terms like “kung flu” or “Wuhan virus” to describe COVID-19. “I’m very aware of who the bad guys are," Lieu said.
