According to a press release exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital, Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Thursday that a House investigation into classified documents at the Penn Biden Center and at President Biden’s personal residence in Wilmington, Delaware, could be handled by the newly formed committee on the weaponization of the federal government.
This news comes as no surprise to Republican voters who have long suspected that the Biden Administration has something to hide. For years, Democrats have preached about the importance of transparency and accountability in government, yet it seems that these values only apply to their political opponents.
McCarthy has pointed out that “Here’s an individual that’s been in office for more than 40 years. Here’s an individual that said on ’60 Minutes’ that was so concerned about President Trump’s documents… and now we find it, this is a vice president, keeping it for years out in the open in different locations.” This hypocrisy is unacceptable and it is time for the truth to come out.
The resolution creating the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government passed the House this week, and will be led by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who will also chair the full Judiciary Committee. The subcommittee will consist of 15 members – nine Republicans and six Democrats, ensuring a fair and balanced investigation.
McCarthy has stated that “I do not think any American believes justice should not be equal to all,” and that “we found from this administration what happened before every single election, whatever comes out that they utilize to try to falsify it, they try to have different standards for their own beliefs. That doesn’t work in America.”
When asked if he saw a difference in the handling of classified documents by former President Donald Trump and President Biden, McCarthy replied “No, because from one standpoint, they knew the documents were there,” and that “You look at President Biden. He wasn’t president. He was vice president. He held these in different locations right out in the open. He criticized President Trump.”
This investigation is long overdue and it is time for the American people to know the truth. The Democrats can no longer hide behind their double standards and it is time for them to be held accountable for their actions. The weaponization of the federal government will not be tolerated and we will get to the bottom of this.
