McCarthy: Pelosi Coronavirus Response Probe "Isn't About Oversight, It Sounds Like Pure Politics"


House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her move to form a House special committee to investigate the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus crisis. McCarthy says lawmakers should be focused on taking care of the coronavirus crisis instead of creating "partisan" oversight probes.

"This isn't about oversight, it sounds like pure politics," McCarthy said on 'FOX & Friends' Friday. "Let’s take care of the crisis at hand right now. We have five different oversights already looking at this and this is what she comes up with?"

"It seems to me that this is just politics as usual instead of focusing on the crisis we need to be today, focusing on the American public and getting the resources to them," McCarthy said.
