House panel investigating virus response is stuffed with anti-Trump militants

A new coronavirus oversight panel assembled by House Democrats is being dismissed as the same old attempt to get President Trump, following the failure of impeachment or the Trump-Russia investigation to end his presidency.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently appointed a select committee on the coronavirus, to be chaired by Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, a key ally of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The membership was stacked with early advocates of impeaching Trump, including California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters. Republicans have so far avoided participation.

“A better name for this committee would be ‘Committee of Oligarchs to Unelect the President’ or ‘COUP’ for short,” said Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican.

“People want to see us get to the bottom of [the coronavirus] and deal with the economic fallout, not go after the president,” said Rep. Andy Biggs, the Arizona Republican who chairs the Freedom Caucus.
