McCarthy: Pelosi’s Coronavirus Committee Is ‘Pure Politics’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s formation of a House Select Committee to investigate the Federal government’s response to the coronavirus is “pure politics”, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on “Fox & Friends” Friday.

Further, the GOP leader argued that there are three “oversight entities” included in the CARES Act that passed last Friday, including a pandemic oversight inspector general, a presidential appointee confirmed by the Senate, and a Congressional oversight appointee.

“What’s most telling here is who she appointed. She didn’t go with the Oversight Committee Chair, her own. She appointed Clyburn, and remember what Clyburn said, her Majority Whip, he said this is a time to restructure their vision, government,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy added, “This isn’t about oversight. It sounds like pure politics. Really the Speaker should be focused on what we need to deliver to the American public. Let’s take care of the crisis at hand right now. We have five different oversights already looking at this and this is what she comes up with?”

Pelosi announced the formation of the Committee during a conference call with reporters on Thursday. During the call, she confirmed that the committee will have the power to subpoena witnesses.

“The greatness of our nation is in its ability to rise to extraordinary challenges, no matter how big,” she said. “Now, at this time, we face this deadly virus and a battered economy with millions of American suddenly out of work. Congress has taken an important step in leading this crisis by passing three bills with over $2 trillion in emergency relief. We need to ensure those dollars are spent carefully and effectively.”

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Fights Back DOJ Challenging Legal Citizenship Voter Law

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division with one clear message: ‘We’ll see you in court.’

Biden’s DOJ is challenging an Arizona law aimed to protect its citizens by ensuring only citizens can vote in elections.

Brnovich makes mention of a letter he received from Kristen Clarke, Assistant Attorney General, dated June 27, 2022 “expressing your intent to challenge HB 2492, Arizona’s law that assures only citizens are able to vote in our elections.”

“Please be assured that I will defend this law to the U.S. Supreme our if necessary and defeat the federal government’s efforts to interfere with our state’s election safeguards, as I did last year in Brnovich v. DNC” the letter continued.

“It is curious, however, that the Department of Justice would use its resources to challenge a common sense law inn Arizona designed to guard against non-citizen voting, while the Biden Administration nis simultaneously opening our borders to encourage a flood of illegal immigration.”

“Is the federal government attempting to undermine our sovereignty and destabilize our election infrastructure?” Brnovich asks. “I hope that is not your intention.” The Arizona Attorney General concludes his letter by writing “I strongly urge you to reconsider your pursuit of this misguided suit and to instead recognize Arizona’s constitutional authority to conduct lawful and secure elections.”
