CIA fear Trump contact with lawmakers might have exposed him to corona virus

WASHINGTON – Several lawmakers have self-quarantined in some capacity, or vowed to stay away from the U.S. Capitol, after coming into contact with individuals who are testing positive for coronavirus. 

Most lawmakers who have self-quarantined, so far, came into contact with a person at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Maryland last week who has tested positive for the virus. 

Both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence attended CPAC, but the group said the man, a New Jersey resident, was exposed to the virus before the conference, where he “had no interaction with the President or Vice President.” The White House said Saturday that there was no indication Pence or Trump had been in “close proximity” to the man. 

Some of the lawmakers who have self-quarantined have had interactions with the President since CPAC.
