House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Wednesday that a group of vicious partisans and political thugs will make up a Dem-led House committee investigation into the president’s response to the coronavirus. The probe will no doubt be timed to coincide with the fall elections. One can almost already hear the press sharpening their hatchets
Fox News reports these cretins and sinecurists will serve on the committee: “House Financial Service Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., House Small Business Committee Chairwoman Nydia Velazquez, D-N.Y., and Reps. Bill Foster, D-Ill., Jamie Raskin, D-Md., and Andy Kim, D-N.J.”
Fox News reports these geniuses will serve on another committee Pelosi and Adam Schiff have hatched up to try and cripple the nation’s legitimate virus response: “House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., also announced their intention to create a 9/11-style commission, set to launch in February 2021 ‘hopefully after the pandemic has been overcome and after the presidential election.’ ” The 2021 date is likely a feint or a promise to keep a knife at the country’s throat if the president is reelected.
Said Pelosi, “We must be sure that the money we put forth goes to those who need it most, in a way that addresses disparities in access to health care and credit. We also owe it to the American people to prevent waste, fraud and abuse and to protect against price-gouging and profiteering.”
She concluded: “As we respond to this unprecedented pandemic, there will be other opportunities for Member participation which have been suggested for inclusion in legislation.”
Oh good, “other opportunities.” And who are the sober objective fact-finders who will populate such “opportunities”?
Members of Congress like Democrat Maxine Waters of California. Here is Waters in 2019, being objective, “impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative.”
The GOP wasted no time in returning fire. A spokesman for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California struck back hard, “Instead of looking for innovative ways to help the American people, Speaker Pelosi has chosen to pursue ‘impeachment 2.0’ with a partisan and unnecessary oversight committee,” the staffer said to Fox News.
He added: “The roster the Speaker has chosen makes clear that this is not an honest effort at transparency and accountability, but rather another attempt to politically damage the Trump administration. During a time of unprecedented crisis, Congress must come together to speak with one voice – the Speaker’s so-called coronavirus oversight task force is simply another partisan pursuit.”
