Today, Speaker McCarthy announced the appointment of leading MAGA extremists to the House Oversight Committee. Among the committee’s new and returning members are Reps. Gosar, Taylor Greene, Boebert, Luna, Donalds, Perry, and Clyde — many of the most extreme Representatives in all of Congress.
Government watchdog Accountable.US released the following statement exposing Speaker McCarthy’s dangerous capitulation to the MAGA majority’s most extreme fringes, undoubtedly empowering them to launch politically-motivated investigations into the Biden Administration and the president’s family for partisan gain.
With every round of appointments, we gain more insight into what McCarthy traded away to the most fringe MAGA Extremists to ascend to the speakership. Thanks to his desperate concessions, the work of the GOP’s Oversight Committee will now be shaped by election deniers who believe in conspiracy theories over transparency and accountability. With the MAGA Majority now in charge, Americans should brace themselves for a barrage of political stunts that do not reflect the priorities they care about.”
