Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) made it clear on Wednesday that the incoming Republican majority in the United States House will hold the Biden govt. and Democrats responsible from “day one,” from probing the origins of the Chinese coronavirus to the Justice Department attacking worried parents to the mishandled withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“You have a right to know the roots of COVID. You have the right to know why the Department of Justice went against concerned parents. You have the right to know why we failed to protect American life in Afghanistan.” McCarthy said in a viral social media post: “On day one, a Republican majority will start making this regime accountable.”
McCarthy’s pledge comes as Republicans get ready to retake control of the U.S. House, with McCarthy probably at the helm after being raised to the role of speaker. He was selected by House Republicans last month after defeating Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), a past Freedom Caucus chair. McCarthy will be elected Speaker of the House in January if he receives at least 218 votes in the House.
McCarthy has already previewed a number of the items on the agenda of a Republican-led House. McCarthy stated in Aug. that Republicans, who control the lower chamber, will strive to hold Dr. Anthony Fauci responsible.
“Dr. Fauci lost the confidence of the American people when his advise kept schools and businesses closed unnecessarily while disguising questions regarding his awareness of COVID’s beginnings,” McCarthy stated.
“He owes the American people an explanation.” A majority in the @HouseGOP will keep him accountable,” he added.
McCarthy’s most recent pledge, to start investigating the roots of the coronavirus, among many other things, comes on the heels of the Nov. 23 release of Fauci’s deposition as a component of the lawsuit filed by Missouri and Louisiana against the Biden govt. and federal officials over possible collusion with social media platforms to try to silence speech related to the Chinese coronavirus.
During his deposition, Fauci pretended to be ignorant, claiming he couldn’t recollect answers to 174 questions and disputing over the meaning of gain of function.
