In a fiery statement by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, he warned House Democrats that the GOP will launch wide-ranging investigations in the litany of “fraud and abuse” committed by the Democrats should the Republicans take back the House in 2022.
Among issues on the chopping block should the GOP take the house will be: investing the allegations of insider trading on the part of Speaker Pelosi’s husband, Paul, as well as investigations into the affairs of Hunter Biden.

In an exclusive interview with prominent Conservative magazine Breitbart, McCarthy, stated pointedly that “You know what? We will look at any of the fraud and abuse that has gone on,” McCarthy vowed. “We will have real investigations.”.
According to Bloomberg, in a recent financial disclosure Paul Pelosi exercised a number of call options on the stocks of Google to the tune of over 5 million dollars or around 4,000 shares. “In a financial disclosure signed by Nancy Pelosi July 2, her husband reported exercising call options to acquire 4,000 shares of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, at a strike price of $1,200. The trade netted him a $4.8 million gain, and it’s risen to $5.3 million since then as the shares have jumped.”
In a suspicious blend of irony and timing, the calls were put out just weeks before an antitrust legislation vote in the committee. This would certainly seem like an irony that could give way to abuse of power, should the right investigation ask the right questions.
Commenting on both the financial disclosure and Hunter Biden’s impropriety with regards to art dealing, McCarthy said that in that same interview, “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. Can you imagine that?” McCarthy asked. “And then you’ve got the only other person who wouldn’t be nervous about inflation. If you had a son that was an artist that could sell paintings for $500,000 — which, he’s never been an artist before. Those are the only two families that I could think of that aren’t worried about inflation in America.”
