EXCLUSIVE: Top Republicans on the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees on Wednesday called for an investigation into the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention after emails showed the nation’s second-largest teachers union lobbied the agency on school reopening policies.
House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer, R-Ky., and House Education and Labor Committee ranking member Virginia Foxx, R-N.C. penned a letter to the CDC accusing them of putting “political obedience to Democrat-aligned special interest groups” ahead of “our nation’s youth.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The lawmakers demanded the agency release all correspondence “between or among employees, contractors and representatives of the CDC and representatives of any teacher’s union” since President Biden entered office, citing emails that show regular correspondence between the government agency and the American Federation of Teachers.
The letter states that the CDC has until May 26 to respond to the request and unveil the scope of “the influence of these special interest groups on the CDC’s guidance.”
“President Biden promised to reopen schools within 100 days of his Administration. He also promised to follow the science regarding COVID-19,” the letter reads. “Your political obedience to Democrat-aligned special interest groups breaks both those promises.”
Rep. Jordan told Fox News, “We went from ‘trust the science’ to ‘trust the teachers unions’. My understanding that this happened not even three weeks into the Biden administration. You’ve got a call on a Sunday from the head of the AFT to the CDC…this is how much access the unions had to the administration and what they’re working on.”
House Judiciary GOP tweeted Thursday, “NEW: The Biden Administration went from ‘trust the science,’ to ‘trust the teachers’ unions.’ We want to know why. Read the latest letter from @Jim_Jordan, @virginiafoxx, and @RepJamesComer.”
🚨 NEW: The Biden Administration went from “trust the science,” to “trust the teachers’ unions.”
