(RightIsRight.co) – The new Republican majority in the US House of Representatives will launch an investigation into Communist China’s influence on America, GOP US Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida revealed.
The Republicans have a majority of 222 seats in the 435-member lower chamber of the US Congress.
Donalds’ comments came after the top House Republican, Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, was elected Speaker on the fifteenth ballot.
“The Speaker has been very clear about what’s going to happen. He’s been clear for quite some time,” Byron Donalds told Fox News on Sunday on the GOP’s plans to probe the Chinese Communist Party’s influence on the US.
“We’re going to have a select committee just to investigate China and all the things that the CCP is doing to not only influence here in the United States, but also to take jobs away from Americans over the years,” the Florida representative added.
Donalds’ comments after last month, McCarthy announced he would establish a China Select Committee to be chaired by GOP US Rep. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin.
“The Chinese Communist Party is the greatest geopolitical threat of our lifetime,” the then-future House Speaker said last month.
“We need a whole-of-government approach that will build on the efforts of the Republican-led China Task Force and ensure America is prepared to tackle the economic and security challenges posed by the CCP,” McCarthy added.
In his Fox News interview, Rep. Byron Donalds explained the GOP majority in the House would also investigate “what the Biden family has been doing for the last several years.”
That probe would include looking into the business and personal affairs of First Son Hunter Biden and the scandalous revelations from his lost “laptop from hell.”
“The investigations, not just into the FBI, the Department of Justice, obviously, as people are seeing with the Twitter files and all that stuff, but also with what the Biden family has been doing,” Donalds said.
According to Donalds, who said he spoke with other key GOP House members, Jim Jordan and Jim Comer, the Republicans will also investigate the “implications on the Biden domestic and international agenda” and “the weaponization of the federal government.”
During some of the fifteen ballots to the election of the new US House Speaker, Donalds was nominated as a contender for the job but ended up supporting Kevin McCarthy.
“I hope one thing is clear after this week: I will never give up. I will never give up on you, the American people. And I will never give up on keeping our Commitment to America. Our nation is worth fighting for,” McCarthy declared after he was elected Speaker on Friday.
