This week, Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reappointed Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT) to the China Task Force. Rep. Stewart released the following statement on the importance of holding China accountable.
“Today, the Chinese Communist Party will celebrate its 100th anniversary. But it is no occasion for joy. It is a reminder of their gruesome legacy, from Tiananmen Square to Uyghur internment camps to the coronavirus cover-up. China is the leading threat to global freedom and democracy. America cannot allow China’s continued wrongdoings and human rights violations to go unchecked.
“That’s why I’m honored to once again serve on the China Task Force. We will continue probing the CCP’s cover-up of the origins of COVID-19, protecting our supply chains, countering China’s malign influence at home and abroad, fighting for Hong Kong’s autonomy, and more. The CCP cannot be allowed to harm Americans without consequence. House Republicans are united in ensuring Americans get the accountability, transparency, and justice they deserve.”
