(Republican Insider) – A study that was conducted back in 2020 revealed that nearly 45 percent of all the coronavirus deaths in the United States took place in nursing homes. To give that some perspective, only 0.6 percent of the population in this country lives in nursing homes, yet over 45 percent of deaths related to COVID happened in these facilities.
According to Gateway Pundit, in August of last year, the Department of Justice made a request for data from four different Democrat governors on the orders they issued concerning the sending of patients with COVID-19 to nursing homes. There were a total of five of these individuals.
The most well known of these five, of course, is New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (screen shot here).
And then comes California Gov. Gavin Newsom (screen shot here).
Then we have Gov. Tom Wolf from Pennsylvania (screen shot here).
And who could forget Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (screen shot here).
And yet, despite this practice killing thousands of people in nursing homes, the Department of Justice under Joe Biden’s administration has dropped all of the investigations into these Democrat governors, the same people who tossed sick coronavirus patients into nursing homes along with those who are most vulnerable to the illness and its complications.
Now tens of thousands of American citizens and their families will be going without justice for the death of their loved ones.
A terrible day for thousands of families. In a letter to @SteveScalise, @TheJusticeDept wrote that they were dropping the nursing home investigations in all states including New York. There will be no justice for our loved ones, and it feels like we’ve lost them all over again. pic.twitter.com/DV7uNRMr9D

A new report from Fox News features a response to the DOJ’s decision from Rep. Steve Scalise, who put Biden on full blast on Friday after hearing the new course of action which will cheat Americans out of the justice they deserve.
🚨🚨 BREAKING—Biden’s DOJ just said they’re refusing to investigate the massive nursing home COVID death scandals in New York, Michigan, & Pennsylvania.
They’re complicit in these Democrat governors’ cover ups.
Families who lost loved ones deserve better.

“It is outrageous that the Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly ‘must admit’ orders issued by governors in New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan that resulted in the deaths of thousands of senior citizens,” the minority whip went on to say in a statement released on Friday.
“Where is the justice for nursing home victims and their grieving families? These deadly orders contradicted the CDC’s guidance, and needlessly endangered the most vulnerable among us to the deadly COVID-19 virus,” the Louisiana Republican stated. “Even worse, Governor Cuomo in New York intentionally tried to cover up the true death toll resulting from his mandate. Grieving families deserve answers and accountability. It’s unconscionable that Biden’s Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly actions that went against CDC’s medical guidance taken in these states.”

It’s quite clear that the Democratic Party does not care about the American people. If they did, they would be seeking to bring these failed governors to justice for the deaths of tens of thousands of people who would still be alive if not for their horrendous policy making.
