Biden calls for inspector general to probe stimulus loans

Source: thehill



By Julia Manchester - 05/12/20 07:35 AM EDT



Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is calling for an inspector general to investigate coronavirus stimulus loans given to large companies or political insiders.

"Let me issue a warning right now to anyone who participates in a corrupt giveaway with President Trump and his administration," Biden said in a minute-long video released by his campaign in which he pledges to appoint a non-partisan inspector general to look into the matter.

"I will direct her to review every stimulus loan given to any big company or political insider," the former vice president continued.

Biden said his inspector general would have the authority to report any potential wrongdoing by "any company or executive" to the Department of Justice.

Democrats and left-leaning groups have criticized coronavirus relief legislation, known as the CARES Act, which was signed into law last month by President Trump.

6. Just got a letter

...from the IRS as a completely unnecessary follow-up to my "relief" check, signed with an enormous Trump signature and telling me how much he cares.

I'm beyond enraged that my taxes are paying for his campaign literature masquerading as a kind gesture.
