In a statement, Speaker Kevin McCarthy outlined the purpose of the subcommittees.
"The government has a responsibility to serve the American people, not go after them," he began. "Unfortunately, throughout Democrats' one-party rule in Washington we saw a dangerous pattern of the government being used to target political opponents while they neglected their most basic responsibilities."
"The 118th Congress marks a new beginning for this institution," he continued, vowing that, in contrast with Democrats, "Republicans' governing agenda will be based on transparency, accountability, and solutions."
Via the subcommittees, the GOP hopes to "stop the weaponization of the federal government" and "finally get answers to the Covid origins and the federal government's gain of function research that contributed to the pandemic."
The Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government is chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, who will be joined by other notable members of Congress such as Reps. Elise Stefanik and Chip Roy.
Rep. Brad Wenstrup is set to chair the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic, of which Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is a member.
Greene said she was "honored" to sit on the subcommittee, and stated that, "It's time to reveal the truth on the origins of COVID, the authoritarian Democrat response, vaccines, and Fauci’s NIAID involvement in gain-of-function research."
