Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) told Breitbart News this weekend that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would instead investigate President Donald Trump again than focus on the actual origins of the Chinese coronavirus and U.S. tax dollars that went to the Wuhan Institute of Virology from which intelligence officials increasingly believe the virus leaked.
What we have here shows the real intent of the Democratic leadership under Pelosi, she could care less if China has killed off tens of thousands of Americans died and hundreds of thousands around the world due to their cover-up and outright lying, she would rather sacrifice these losses if she can somehow get another attempt to impeach Trump.
Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125, the Patriot Channel, Reschenthaler discussed his efforts to investigate tax dollars that flowed through a New York firm to the Wuhan lab. He said that Pelosi and House Democrats are not interested in holding the Chinese Communist Party accountable and, instead, want to focus their oversight efforts on politically harming President Trump again just like they tried and failed with the partisan impeachment last year and earlier this year.
“We should have an investigative body looking at these grants, but Nancy Pelosi is not going to do that,” Reschenthaler said. “So you have myself and House Republicans. I can tell you I’m going to continue to look into these grants. I’m going to continue to look into the Department of Homeland Security as well to see what grants are going from there to China. I’m also looking at defunding the World Health Organization, and we can talk about that as well. But the bottom line of the Democrats’ behavior is this: They hate this president so badly that they would rather side with the Chinese Communist Party than defend Americans and defend our spending and spend wisely and just be honest. That is their hatred for President Trump and disdain for President Trump’s supporters.”
Reschenthaler wrote a letter to Sec. Of Defense Mark Esper asking about a Pentagon grant to EcoHealth Alliance, Inc., a New York firm with ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology due to the grants it has given them, this was matched with sub-grants funded by the American taxpayers.
The Pentagon did admit that the congressman was inquiring into this matter, he was requesting that investigations be made into how much of U.S. funds went into this lab, and why they did.
The grant was from the National Institute of Health (NIH) – in particular the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which is run by the now-famous Dr. Anthony Fauci — saw U.S. tax dollars sent to EcoHealth Alliance for researching coronaviruses from bats flow out to the Chinese lab in Wuhan.
An NIH official confirmed to Breitbart that this did indeed happened. The NIH was so concerned about the money going out from their control to the Wuhan lab, they notified the EcoHealth Alliance that would be further investigating the matter.
“The NIH funded EcoHealth Alliance, which then, in turn, turned around and partially funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Reschenthaler told Breitbart News. “The DOD also gave EcoHealth Alliance $6.5 million in a grant, and as you said, that grant was to understand bat-borne zoonotic disease in context with weapons of mass destruction. So what I’m trying to find out is whether or not the DOD funding that went to EcoHealth also went to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. We know that the NIH funding did, and we also know that all money is fungible, but I want to see if we can trace that money to Wuhan to see how much and to what extent the DOD and American taxpayers actually funded the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”
What is far more concerning, and does raise alarm bells, Dr. Fauci has been running the national response to the Wuhan virus. One would wonder why this conflict of interest has never been explored. One would wonder if he too was trying to steer away inquiries about his hand in all of this.
What is most disheartening about all of this is just how little the Democrats seem to care about the origins of the virus, but there could be a reason for this, if they can change the narrative, as we have already seen them try to do, they can switch the blame of this from China to Trump.
Many Democrats have brushed off holding China accountable for the virus and, instead, intend to focus their efforts on attacking President Trump over the Chinese coronavirus. Pelosi, whose Articles of Impeachment effort against Trump failed in grand fashion this year as the U.S. Senate acquitted the president, has even launched the creation of a select committee to investigate the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic — a select committee that Republicans are considering boycotting.
The members Pelosi named to the committee last week are highly partisan Democrats. First and foremost, Pelosi appointed House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC) — the Democrat who publicly mused that the chaos of the pandemic provided Democrats an opportunity to remake America in their vision — to chair it. Then she named several others directly involved in the failed effort to impeach President Trump, including House Oversight Committee chairwoman Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and House Financial Services Committee chairwoman Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). Maloney and Waters chair two of the committees that were involved in the partisan impeachment inquiry of President Trump.
The others — House Small Business Committee chairwoman Rep. Nydia Velazquez (D-NY) and Reps. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), Bill Foster (D-IL), and Andy Kim (D-NJ) — all voted for impeachment as well. Raskin, as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, gained particular prominence during hearings last year.
As such, Rep. Kevin McCarthy — the House GOP leader — has said he does not believe Republicans will participate in the sham investigation because he sees it merely as “another impeachment committee.”
What we are seeing is a shift away from the Democrats. They are buried in the pockets of China, from doing any investigation into China, and what their responsibility in all of this is, to blame this 100% on Trump as if he had a hand in the creation of the virus. It seems that Pelosi and the Democrats at this point are taking directions from China and not the people they are pretending to represent.
If nothing else shows the desperate need to rid ourselves of the control the Democrats currently hold over the House, we now are seeing what they present, none stop attacks against Trump, and throwing their support behind foreign nations and nationals instead of showing this support for their nation.
We need to replace them, it would be nice if we could get the whole lot of them replaced, but just pulling back the majority would have to be what is striven for.
To win back control of the Senate, we need 18 of the 30 districts Trump won to put Republicans in office; this would strip the unpatriotic and seditious left from the power they currently hold.
