House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Thursday announced the Republicans he is appointing to the new House coronavirus select committee, weeks after Democrats voted to establish the investigative committee to look into the White House team and their handling of the pandemic.

A divided House of Representatives voted April 23 to establish a new investigative committee to monitor the implementation by President Trump and his team of close to $3 trillion in coronavirus relief measures. Democratic leaders had been waiting for Republican leadership to name members to the panel, but Republicans had blasted the committee as being political and redundant to other oversight panels.
