GOP Leader McCarthy: Pelosi’s ‘done more to dismantle our institutions and delay relief’ than help the American people

Kevin McCarthy

GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy isn’t letting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi off the hook for her hair fiasco earlier this month, or her continued partisan efforts to stifle relief for the American people proposed by President Donald Trump.

I agree, her sanctimonious actions really are doing more damage to the nation and doing little to help those most vulnerable both economically and physically affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Moreover, the Democrats are fighting even harder and dividing the nation even further over Trump’s constitutional right to nominate Justice Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court to fill the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat.

For Democrats — and as it appears by the party’s actions — that the American people can take a back seat and make the sacrifices needed in the hopes that they will win back the White House.

It’s all about winning the election in November. It’s all about winning even if that means cutting off any assistance to the most needed and stifling programs that would work to elevate the economic hardships.

McCarthy’s statements about Pelosi are right on the money.

First, McCarthy noted that on Saturday it marked “the one-year anniversary since Speaker Pelosi launched the most partisan weakest impeachment in U.S. history.”

On Wednesday in response to Pelosi’s threats made on Sunday in an interview with ABC news to impeach President Trump was another affront to the nation.

McCarthy fought back hard saying to Pelosi “I will make you this one promise, listening to the speaker on television this weekend, if she tries to move for an impeachment based upon the president following the Constitution, I think there will be a move on the floor to no longer, or the question of her being speaker,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.

“She may think she has a quiver — we do too,” he said.

Perhaps Nancy will want to do more to help [small businesses] and not just violate local orders so she can get her hair done, GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy

On Saturday, McCarthy reminded everyone that “it’s been almost two years since Nancy Pelosi took the gavel and Democrats have done more to dismantle our institutions and delay relief than they have to help the American people…And that trend continues.”

“Yesterday, House Democrats as advised by their leader speaker Pelosi blocked all relief for American small businesses,” said McCarthy.

He also jabbed at Pelosi’s hair fiasco earlier this month when security camera video surfaced showing her getting her hair done in San Francisco without her mask on, while all businesses were to remain closed.

“Perhaps Nancy will want to do more to help [small businesses] and not just violate local orders so she can get her hair done,” he added.

House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel

Joe Biden

Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
