Pelosi Blocks Investigation Into Chinese Virus Origins, Stops Payroll Tax Cuts

Nancy Pelosi would rather investigate President Donald Trump than do the one investigation Americans want: the actual origins of the coronavirus and U.S. tax dollars that went to the Wuhan lab from which intelligence officials increasingly believe the virus leaked. The House Speaker is also stopping payroll tax cuts for Americans. But that’s not all she is screwing up. Don’t miss this.

Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) told Breitbart News this weekend that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would rather 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.

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.

Reschenthaler wrote a letter this week to Secretary of Defense Mark Esper inquiring about a Pentagon grant to EcoHealth Alliance, Inc., a New York firm that has had a history of funding the Wuhan Institute of Virology with subgrants from American taxpayers.

Nancy Pelosi couldn’t care less about these issues. Instead of getting down to the bottom of the Chinese virus which has crippled the American economy and claimed over 60,000 American lives to date, Nancy formed a select committee to investigate the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. She did not name one Republican to this committee, making it a total joke.

“The bottom line of the Democrats’ behavior is this,” Reschenthaler said. “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.”

Pelosi claims a payroll tax cut must be stopped. Why? She says it has nothing to do with the coronavirus.

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” host Wolf Blitzer asked, “So, is a payroll tax cut okay from your point of view?”

Pelosi responded, “No, it is not.”

She added, “First of all, this is all to be related to the coronavirus. We have enormous, enormous costs, much of it incurred because the president was in denial early on, delayed a reaction to it, caused deaths. And so, now, we want to say, okay, that was then. Alright, let’s start now and do things in a positive way. Nobody’s putting anything on the table saying, unless we have this, we’re not doing that. He shouldn’t either.”

Talk about hypocrisy. Americans are acutely aware that it was the Speaker who held up the first stimulus bill in lieu of adding her pork projects like funding the Kennedy Center. Now, she claims a payroll tax cut does not fall under the coronavirus?

Getting money to hurting Americans falls under the government’s job and is viewed as one of the biggest things they can do to help. It’s the fallout from the economic impact. It’s a no-brainer.

Americans blasted Nancy Pelosi on social media. 

“Absolute vile scum. If anyone in this country supports this senile hag, you’re what’s wrong with America,” tweeted “Punisher Patriot.”

“So she pushes several hoaxes about President Trump yet won’t investigate China and the CCP that attacked the US and the World?” tweeted William Charles Rogers.

“Block the investigation of the state that unleashed this on the world, but convene eight committees to investigate the President. The Whore of Babylon is being faithful to her Dragon all right,” tweeted “iTehYaWut.”

“Any American or entity, organization, regardless of profession, that defends the CCP’s obvious culpability of purposefully spreading Coronavirus Globally, must be considered hostile and nefarious to US interests,” tweeted Johnny Apollo.

While it is unclear if that grant saw U.S. taxpayer money flowing from it out to the Wuhan lab, it is known that another grant that EcoHealth Alliance received did partially spend U.S. tax dollars in the Chinese lab.

That grant, from the National Institutes 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.

Any politician claiming we do not have to investigate funding the very lab that most intel officials say leaked the virus is doing the Chinese Communist Party’s bidding. Nancy Pelosi is following the latest Democrat narrative: blame Trump for everything. She must really think the American people are stupid.
