Okay. So this is supposed to be a good-government, nonpartisan panel just looking for some facts, and just the facts, ma’am, about how the Administration has handled to coronavirus response.
And yet it includes Maxine Waters, who has been calling for President Trump to be impeached since about 2004, and several other Democrats who were involved in the impeachment process.
Pelosi has decided the coronavirus is good politics. Sure, Trump made mistakes in his handling of the crisis. But this is not mistake. It will deny the country any lessons learned from the crisis and any sense of legitimate oversight that could point to actual problems.
It will be another Washington circus designed to elect Democrats.
According to the Washington Examiner:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the names of seven Democratic lawmakers to serve on a newly created coronavirus investigative committee, but Republicans are rejecting the new panel as a “partisan pursuit.”
Pelosi on Wednesday named some of the most anti-Trump Democrats to serve on the committee, which Democrats created without the help of Republican votes during an emergency House session last week.
The roster includes several lawmakers who led the impeachment effort against President Trump, including House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters of California and House Government Reform and Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney of New York.
Waters has been calling for Trump to be removed from office since 2017. Maloney promised to continue with investigations into Trump after the Senate acquitted him of two impeachment charges earlier this year.
The panel also includes Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat who blames Trump for the spread of the coronavirus in the United States and the ensuing economic shutdown.
