“The House of Representatives has an established framework under Rules X and XI of its Rules that govern meaningful oversight and investigations by standing committees within their jurisdiction. Each standing committee has adopted its own rules and memoranda of understanding regarding the conduct of any oversight and investigation, particularly as it relates to the role of the Minority party. Our standing committees have the respective institutional knowledge and expertise to ensure the appropriate questions are asked and answered. It is unclear what gaps exist within the Rule X and XI framework that necessitate the creation of a special select committee to oversee the Administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
