If the GOP takes the House in November, Kevin McCarthy is talking subpoenas on the Hunter Biden scandals. Yeah, right. Excerpt:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said in an interview late last week that if Republicans win back control of the U.S. House of Representatives, he will use their subpoena power to find out what U.S. intelligence agencies knew about the Hunter Biden laptop before the 2020 election, and what they knew of his foreign activities while his father was vice president.
McCarthy, who made the remarks in an interview with the New York Post, warned that “we will use the subpoena” option if top officials with the intelligence agencies don’t cooperate with Republicans.
The report noted that in the days leading up to the 2020 election, more than 50 former intelligence officials signed a letter claiming that the Hunter Biden laptop story was likely a Russian disinformation campaign.
“You would want to ask these individuals first of all, ‘Would you still sign the letter today, and who asked you to sign the letter and why did you sign the letter, and what information did you have prior?’” McCarthy said. “Why did you feel comfortable — especially with your own reputations — that you would sign that letter? Was it someone from the [Biden] campaign who asked, or was it people in the intel community?”
Why isn’t the GOP running on opening up the energy sector, lowering tax rates, reducing the size of government and reducing the regulatory on business? Why not run on liberty? Free markets? Individual enterprise?
Don’t get me wrong, I do think that the blatant corruption on the part of Hunter Biden needs to be looked into. It sure as hell seems like there should be some charges filed, charges that involve some serious jail time. But we all know that nothing of the sort will happen. There will be some showy “hearings”, and there will be a lot of RHEEEEing from the legacy media, and there will be no charges filed, no Grand Jury empaneled, nothing, nothing, nothing will happen.
And so the cycle continues, ad nauseum.
