House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday she's creating a new House committee to oversee the coronavirus response that will have subpoena power to seek information from the Trump administration.
"It would have subpoena power that’s for sure. It's no use having a committee unless you have subpoena power," Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday during a teleconference call with reporters. "And we would hope that there would be cooperation because this is not a kind of an investigation of the administration it's about the whole [response]."
Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., will chair the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis. ...
..., Pelosi said this committee is designed to address the "here and now" -- specifically concerning the allocation of the historic amount of federal funds directed to economic recovery.
Pelosi compared the new committee to the Senate bipartisan committee chaired by then-Sen. Harry Truman in 1941 to investigate waste, fraud and abuse in defense spending in the early days of World War II.
"With over $2 trillion in emergency relief, we need to ensure those dollars are spent carefully and effectively," Pelosi said of the massive stimulus bill Congress already passed to address the coronavirus pandemic.
"The committee will be empowered to examine all aspects of the federal response to coronavirus, and to assure that the taxpayers' dollars are being wisely and efficiently spent to save lives, deliver relief and benefit our economy," she said.
You don't think Pelosi and the Dems want to help Trump's management of the crisis do you? Me neither. They'll be aiming for another impeachment, unless polling convinces them--one hundred percent--that Trump will lose in November.
Clyburn will be the face of this effort because a key goal will be to convince Black Americans that the vast improvements we all experienced under the Trump economy--in which they participated greatly--were never meant for them. The disproportionate deaths of Black Americans from Covid19, which we're already seeing, they will be told, is not the result of diet related health issues--obesity, diabetes, hypertension, etc. No, it will be the result of a racist healthcare system that cares only about preserving white privilege. The Dems are desperate to get ALL Black Americans back on the Liberal plantation.
This is it. The masters of the Globalist Power Elite are desperate to stop Trump. Money will be no object in this effort.
