GOP House Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has promised to investigate Democrats for fraud and abuse if he’s given the speaker’s gavel after the midterms. In an interview with Breitbart on Saturday, the California Republican said Americans are suffering from inflation while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, seem to be making money however they want.
“Which American would not be worried about inflation? Pelosi wouldn’t be worried about it because her and her husband just made $5 million, not buying stock, but trading options on tech stocks when Congress was actually taking legislation up, $5 million in one month,” said McCarthy.
He pointed out recent financial disclosures showed Pelosi’s husband used call options on Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc., just before anti-trust legislation came down the pipe. He also brought up Hunter Biden selling his paintings for $550,000 a piece and said he should be investigated by Republicans.
One week ago, President Biden said inflation was “temporary,” and that spending trillions more would “reduce inflation, reduce inflation, reduce inflation.”
Mr. President, with all due respect—WAKE UP. https://t.co/dnjWkN8twb
