Evil Pelosi Isn’t Waiting: Announces Plan To Handcuff COVID-19 Task Force & Subpoena Trump Officials
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is not waiting for the Chinese coronavirus pandemic to end and she announced a plan to handcuff the Administration coronavirus task force and subpoena Trump officials.
During her weekly press conference that she did by phone Pelosi framed her new plan by saving it will be a bipartisan group to “oversee” the multi-trillion-dollar CARE act that has been passed. Pelosi put Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) in charge and he will be authorized to “to examine all aspects of the federal response to the coronavirus and ensure the taxpayer’s dollars are being wisely and efficiently spent.”
“The panel will root out waste, fraud, and abuse; it will protect against price-gauging, profiteering and political favoritism,” she told reporters on a press call. “We need transparency and accountability.”
Translation, every time the President’s team makes a decision they are going to counter it.
But, she is setting the committee up to do so much more than that.
An unnamed reporter from the New York Daily News claimed that resources weren’t going to the right states and asked if the new committee would produce transparency.
Pelosi responded claiming that they will bring “transparency and accountability” That hospitals cannot provide “surgeries” because they don’t have money (first we’ve heard that).
Pelosi was asked by Paul Cain from the Washington Post, “Can you explain in more detail what the Clyburn select committee’s powers would be, subpoena power and jurisdiction? Would they be looking into how this all started, or are they just supposed to be looking at the oversight of the $2 trillion-plus, however much goes into the recovery and rescue?
“It would have subpoena power, and we would hope there would be cooperation,” she responded. Pelosi claimed this isn’t an investigation (sure it isn’t).
“This is not an investigation of the administration, it is about the whole. There are things that are so new, and we want to make sure they are not exploiters out there. There are people who are pretending they had ventilators or masks but they didn’t and they were arbitraging it. We want to make sure that the funds that are put out there are done so with the conditions that we had in the legislation, that the implementation fo the bill expeditiously, and done.”
Here’s the kicker…
“But, it does [have subpoena power], as I said, that it will protect against and also pressed to endure that the federal responses based on the best possible science guided by the nations best health experts. It will be to ensure that the taxpayer’s dollars are spent wisely and efficiently. Is there a need for an after-action review? Absolutely. People are putting their proposals right now. I DO NOT WANT TO WAIT FOR THAT, because we are in the action right now and I want to make sure that what we do — people have doubt they are concerned about getting their unemployment check, concerned about their small businesses, and all those things.
