On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she will form a select committee to investigate President Trump’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the announcement, “The committee will “examine all aspects of the federal response to the coronavirus and ensure the taxpayer’s dollars are being wisely and efficiently spent,” the speaker told reporters on a conference call.”
“The panel will root out waste, fraud, and abuse; it will protect against price-gauging, profiteering, and political favoritism,” the speaker continued. “We need transparency and accountability.”
“Where there’s money there’s also frequently mischief,” she added.
Pelosi’s announcement means more government resources will be focused on investigating the Trump Administration, not dealing with an international crisis.
