(FreedomBeacon.com)- Three Republican Michigan lawmakers have asked the Inspector General of the United States Department of Justice to initiate a formal inquiry into the decision to drop an investigation into COVID-19 nursing home deaths in Michigan. It follows outrage over the way the COVID-19 pandemic was handled by disgraced Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who was accused of risking the safety and health of nursing home residents.
On July 22, the Department of Justice announced that an investigation into the deaths of nursing home residents from COVID-19, and whether they were the fault of Governor Whitmer’s COVID policies, would end. The investigation started during the Trump administration, but came to an end once the Democrats took control of the Senate, House, and White House.
In a letter from United States Reps. Bill Huizenga, Tim Walberg, and Lisa McClain, the Department of Justice was informed that families from across Michigan demand answers for why their family members were locked up in nursing home facilities where people were known to be infected by COVID-19.
The letter also revealed how 5,681 people died in long-term nursing home and care facilities as of July 21 this year, and that last year it appeared as though the Department of Justice was finally going to get an answer to why people were sent to nursing homes where they ultimately died. However, “hope faded” after the DOJ decided to end the investigation.
Isn’t it convenient that once Democrats gain power, the investigation into a Democrat governor is dropped?
The letter demands an inquiry to determine whether the Biden administration had stepped in to stop the investigation. It also requests information about Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel’s claim that her office’s investigation would end because there is insufficient evidence to support an official inquiry into the matter.
Given the behavior of the Biden administration and his Department of Justice so far, we probably shouldn’t get our hopes up.
