Pelosi Blocking Investigation into China's Coronavirus Cover-Up, Rep Reveals
Rep. Guy Reschenthaler says speaker stopping probe into taxpayer money sent to Wuhan lab
Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is blocking investigations into China's alleged cover-up of the coronavirus origins, according to Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA).
Speaking during an interview over the weekend, the congressman said Speaker Pelosi is also stopping a probe into whether taxpayer money was sent to the Wuhan lab suspected of leaking the deadly virus.
Rep. Reschenthaler told Breitbart News that Pelosi would rather investigate President Donald Trump again than focus on the actual origins of COVID-19.
Reschenthaler says he has been trying to investigate why U.S. tax dollars flowed through a New York firm to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.
However, Pelosi and House Democrats are not interested in holding the Chinese Communist Party accountable, according to Reschenthaler.
He says they, instead, want to focus their oversight efforts on politically harming President Trump again in a similar campaign to their recent failed partisan impeachment attempt.
Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel, Reschenthaler discussed his battle to investigate the matter.
"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."
According to News Thud, Reschenthlaer has been looking into a Pentagon grant to EcoHealth Alliance, INC, a New York firm that has had a history of funding the lab in Wuhan.
The grant issued by the Pentagon specifically was for research into bat-borne zoonotic disease as potential weapons of mass destruction or biological weapons.
That grant came from the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, who just happens to have been run by Dr. Anthony Fauci.
However, the NIH was so worried about the funding going to the lab they said they would be investigating how the funds were being used.
"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 like 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.”
This all happened under the watchful eye of the Obama Administration.
The Obama Administration should have fired Fauci and taken back the money when they realized what was going on.
So Pelosi would rather give China a pass and put party over the country to attack the president.
Such a move will like only further expose the Democrats' partisan agenda.
The White House and the president’s campaign just launched a new slogan, that America is about to launch the greatest comeback of all time; a message that will surely resonate with Americans.
What will not resonate with Americans is Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats investigating their presdient and arguing about what “should have been done.”
