Congress

McCarthy Pledges Investigations of Dems ‘Fraud and Abuse’ If GOP Wins Back House in 2022

Published

on

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pledging that Republicans will launch “real investigations” of Democrats’ “fraud and abuse” if the GOP wins back the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2022 midterm elections.

During an interview with Breitbart News, McCarthy said Republicans will launch investigations into whether Pelosi’s husband engaged in insider trading as well as Hunter Biden over his art deals.

“You know what? We will look at any of the fraud and abuse that has gone on,” McCarthy vowed. “We will have real investigations.”

Recent financial reports revealed Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, exercised call options on 4,000 shares of Alphabet, Inc., Google’s parent company, a week before the House Judiciary Committee decided to advance antitrust legislation that would impact the company.

Paul Pelosi netted a gain of $4.8 million at the time.

McCarthy said that is worth an investigation if Republicans take back the House next November.

McCarthy also spoke about Hunter Biden selling his “artwork” for a reported half a million dollars, which many can clearly see as suspicious given the Biden administration has not disclosed who is buying the art.

“Which American would not be worried about [inflation]? Pelosi wouldn’t be worried about it because she and her husband just made $5 million, not buying stock, but trading options on tech stocks when Congress was actually taking legislation up, $5 million in one month. Can you imagine that?” McCarthy said.

“And then you’ve got the only other person who wouldn’t be nervous about inflation. If you had a son that was an artist that could sell paintings for $500,000 — which, he’s never been an artist before,” he added.

“Those are the only two families that I could think of that aren’t worried about inflation in America,” he added.

“Think about it. Pelosi starts and tells you you can’t get a haircut, but she gets one,” McCarthy said.

“You’ve got Gavin Newsom who sits there and tells you you’ve got to wear a mask as you’re eating dinner — even then he goes out with everybody, doesn’t have it on, and then anybody else can’t go out to eat, and he goes to one of the most expensive restaurants in California,” he added.

“You’ve got Paul Pelosi and Nancy Pelosi off the investment of options into high-tech stocks, yet at the same time Congress is taking up the issue. You’ve got Nancy Pelosi now claiming that you have to wear a mask if you’re in the House, but not in the Senate — because the science is different — but she doesn’t wear a mask,” said McCarthy, continuing.

“They are not ‘for the people.’ They are about themselves, and this is the wake-up call of this new Republican party.”

Biden’s Justice Department Says IRS Must Give Trump’s Tax Returns to Congress

Published

on

The U.S. Justice Department has ordered the Internal Revenue Service to hand over Donald Trump’s tax returns to a Democrat-led House of Representatives committee.

The DOJ said in its order that the House panel has offered “sufficient reasons” for requesting the material.

Back in 2019, the department’s Office of Legal Counsel found that the request for Trump’s taxes by the Democratic-led House Ways and Means Committee was based on a “disingenuous” objective aimed at exposing them to the public.

Now that Joe Biden is in office, the DOJ has reversed course and claims there are “sufficient reasons” for the Democrat panel to see the material.

“We cannot know where receipt of the requested tax information will take the committee, any more than the committee itself can predict what it will find or determine,” wrote Acting Assistant Attorney General Dawn Johnsen for the Office of Legal Counsel.

“The respect due to a co-equal branch of government requires that we presume the Committee will handle the tax information it receives with sensitivity to taxpayer privacy concerns,” Johnson added.

Back in February, the U.S. Supreme Court ordered Donald Trump to releases financial and tax records to prosecutors in Manhattan, New York.

Trump responded in a lengthy statement, calling the ruling “a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country.”

“This investigation is a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country, whether it was the never-ending $32 million Mueller hoax, which already investigated everything that could possibly be investigated, “Russia Russia Russia,” where there was a finding of “No Collusion,” or two ridiculous “Crazy Nancy” inspired impeachment attempts where I was found NOT GUILTY. It just never ends!” Trump wrote.

“So now, for more than two years, New York City has been looking at almost every transaction I’ve ever done, including seeking tax returns which were done by among the biggest and most prestigious law and accounting firms in the U.S. The Tea Party was treated far better by the IRS than Donald Trump,” he continued.

“These are attacks by Democrats willing to do anything to stop the almost 75 million people (the most votes, by far, ever gotten by a sitting president) who voted for me in the election—an election which many people, and experts, feel that I won. I agree!” he added.

“That’s what is done in third world countries. Even worse are those who run for prosecutorial or attorney general offices in far-left states and jurisdictions pledging to take out a political opponent,” he said.

Trump continued: “That’s fascism, not justice—and that is exactly what they are trying to do with respect to me, except that the people of our Country won’t stand for it. In the meantime, murders and violent crime are up in New York City by record numbers, and nothing is done about it. Our elected officials don’t care.”

“All they focus on is the persecution of President Donald J. Trump,” he added.

“I will fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me. We will win!” Trump concluded in his statement.

White House tells states to prevent evictions, as House Democrats press Biden administration to act

Published

on

The White House told state and local governments that they have the power to prevent evictions, following the end of the eviction moratorium.

The Biden administration said in a statement on Monday that while the federal government provided $46.5 billion to prevent renters from being evicted, some states and cities have been “too slow to act” by not providing the money to tenants.

There is “no excuse for any State or locality not to promptly deploy the resources that Congress appropriated to meet the critical need of so many Americans,” the statement continued. “This assistance provides the funding to pay landlords current and back rent so tenants can remain in their homes or apartments, not be evicted.”

The ban on evictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic expired over the weekend, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was unable to extend it following the Supreme Court’s ruling on June 29 that said only Congress could do so through new legislation.

The Congressional Black Caucus has pressured the White House to take action on evictions, the Associated Press reported. Additionally, Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.)  spoke with Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday at the Capitol, where Bush was camped out with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) over the weekend to protest the evictions.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic House leadership said in a statement on Sunday that they were calling “upon the Treasury Department to indicate how the funds that it has already transferred to states and communities can be more effectively distributed to renters and landlords.”

The statement also noted that the Senate is unable to pass an extension of the eviction moratorium, so there was no point for the House to do so.
