During an interview for former Arkansa Gov. Mike Huckabee’s TBN show, Schweizer said many of Pelosi’s conflicts of interest had become more apparent during the coronavirus pandemic—including her steadfast refusal to look into the origins of the virus.
“I mean, it’s been now more than two years—COVID’s happened,” he said while promoting his new book, Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win.
However, the House has refused, thus far, to investigate anything related to its origin that could reflect negatively on China.
“There’s not been one committee hearing to say, ‘Hey, maybe we should discuss to see where it came from,’” Schweizer noted.
“And honestly, I think one of the reasons, as I point out in the book, is she and her family have strong financial ties in China,” he continued. “Her husband and son have both done deals there.”
Interestingly, Pelosi used to rebuke the communist nation due to its human rights violations, but in recent years she has dialed back almost all criticism.
“She’s really pivoted,” Schweizer said. “She used to be quite critical on Beijing on human rights. That has changed almost entirely.”
He concluded with the hope that GOP Congressman Kevin McCarthy might return to power in the House and initiate investigations into both the coronavirus and other mostly-ignored topics, like the Hunter Biden scandal.
“So, if McCarthy comes in, I hope that those investigations happen and he has the power with some congressional committees to actually issue subpoenas,” he said. “So, how about we have subpoenas and have Hunter Biden and others actually testify under oath about what’s going on.”
