CNN Tries to Stamp Out GOP Investigations into Bidens, COVID, Fauci

With Republicans set to take control of the House, GOP congressional leaders have promised to hold President Biden, his administration, and federal bureaucrats to account and get to the truth on key issues. But after a series of dragged-out investigations into former President Trump and other Republicans, CNN had suddenly had their fill of congressional inquiries with correspondent Randi “Kush” Kaye scoffing at Republicans during Monday’s Anderson Cooper 360.

Kaye, who’s famous for seemingly getting high during CNN’s New Year’s Eve debauchery in 2017, began her report by huffing about Kentucky Republican Congressman James Comer’s determination to have his House Oversight and Reform Committee “investigate whether Joe Biden and, his son Hunter are, as he puts it, ‘compromised.’”

Ignoring the evidence of apparent corruption found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, Kaye warned of what Republicans planned to do:

At the heart of the planned investigation, are dozens of suspicious activity reports that Republicans claim, banks filed, related to Hunter Biden’s financial activities.

As the incoming majority in the House, Republicans can use subpoena power to get those reports, as well as subpoena foreign entities, and others, who did business, with Hunter Biden.

Without evidence, Kaye claimed “There is no evidence Joe Biden did anything wrong. And Hunter Biden has denied any wrongdoing.” Of course, this omits questions about the 10 percent “for the big guy” and Joe’s false claims about never speaking with his son about his business dealings.

When it came to investigating the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, Kaye blamed Trump despite Biden undoing many of Trump’s policy actions immediately after taking office:

The withdrawal was brokered, between the Trump administration, and the Taliban, in February of 2020, and left thousands of Afghan citizens, who had helped the U.S., in limbo. Some made a frantic attempt, to leave the country, by clinging to airplane wings.

Although, she did note, “In the days following Biden’s withdrawal announcement, 13 U.S. troops were killed, along with more than 170 Afghans in a bombing at the airport in Kabul.”

Kaye also took strong issue with Republican demands to get to the bottom of COVID’s origin. She tried to discredit the lab-leak theory by claiming studies point to a “seafood market,” despite expert skepticism of the results due to China’s obstruction and influence in the writing of it:

House Republicans are also planning to investigate how the Pandemic started, despite the fact, two studies released in July both concluded that a seafood market in Wuhan was most likely the epicenter for the virus.

Meanwhile, CNN once boosted the notion of COVID coming from a Chinese lab.

“They are also vowing to investigate Dr. Anthony Fauci, the newly retired Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases,” she whined as if being retired kept him above being asked questions.

This attempt to discredit any future Republican investigation was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships LifeLock and ClearChoice. Their contact information is linked.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360
January 2, 2023
9:01:32 p.m. Eastern

RANDI KAYE: Republican Congressman James Comer of Kentucky, as the incoming Chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, he’s determined to investigate whether Joe Biden and, his son, Hunter are, as he puts it, “compromised.”

REP. JAMES COMER (R-KY): This evidence raises troubling questions about whether President Biden is a national security risk, and about whether he is compromised by foreign governments.

KAYE: This all dates back to 2014, when Hunter Biden joined the Board of Burisma, a private Ukrainian gas company. He was paid $50,000 a month. At the time, his father was Vice President, and handling some foreign policy, in Ukraine, for the Obama administration.

At the heart of the planned investigation, are dozens of suspicious activity reports that Republicans claim, banks filed, related to Hunter Biden’s financial activities.

As the incoming majority in the House, Republicans can use subpoena power to get those reports, as well as subpoena foreign entities, and others, who did business, with Hunter Biden.

There is no evidence Joe Biden did anything wrong. And Hunter Biden has denied any wrongdoing.

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: We went to Afghanistan, because of a horrific attack that happened 20 years ago. That cannot explain why we should remain there in 2021.

KAYE: Republicans have also signaled they’ll investigate America’s withdrawal, from Afghanistan.

REP. MICHAEL MCCAUL (R-TX): This is going to be a stain on this President, and his presidency. And I think he’s going to have blood on his hands for what they did.

KAYE: Nearly 20 years after the U.S. established a presence in Afghanistan, Biden pulled the last American troops out of there in 2021.

The withdrawal was brokered, between the Trump administration, and the Taliban, in February of 2020, and left thousands of Afghan citizens, who had helped the U.S., in limbo. Some made a frantic attempt, to leave the country, by clinging to airplane wings.

In the days following Biden’s withdrawal announcement, 13 U.S. troops were killed, along with more than 170 Afghans in a bombing at the airport in Kabul.

MCCAUL: They totally blew this one. They completely underestimated the strength of the Taliban. They didn’t listen to the Intelligence Community.

KAYE: House Republicans are threatening to subpoena State Department officials, over the flawed withdrawal.

And there’s this.

REP. KEVIN MCCARTHY (R-CA): We want to find where the origins of COVID began, so it never starts again. How did that happen?

KAYE: House Republicans are also planning to investigate how the Pandemic started, despite the fact, two studies released in July both concluded that a seafood market in Wuhan was most likely the epicenter for the virus.

COMER: We want to bring in and interview all the scientists who, early on, told Dr. Fauci that this is obviously a lab leak, this is obviously man-made, but then they changed their story.

KAYE: They are also vowing to investigate Dr. Anthony Fauci, the newly retired Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: All I have ever done was to recommend common-sense good CDC-recommended public health policies that have saved millions of lives. If you want to investigate me for that, go ahead.

KAYE: Randi Kaye, CNN.
