Washington, D.C. — Congresswoman Elise Stefanik joined Mornings With Maria Bartiromo on the Fox Business Network to discuss President Biden’s weaponization of the Department of Justice against his top political opponent and how House Republicans are delivering accountability.

Rep. Stefanik also discussed how House Republicans are countering Communist China and standing with Israel.

Watch her full remarks here.

Highlights of her interview are below:

On Joe Biden’s Weaponization of The Department of Justice: 

“Look at Joe Biden’s Department of Justice, it has become an arm of the Democrat political operation, weaponized against Joe Biden’s top political opponent…And it is not a coincidence, Maria, that the same week that House Republicans are having a hearing, today actually, hearing from two IRS credible whistleblowers, highlighting the politicization of the investigation into Hunter Biden to shield the Biden family member from equal justice under the law, is the same week that Jack Smith makes this announcement. So, the American people see this for what this is, which is the weaponization, which is un-American, of the Department of Justice against Joe Biden’s political opponents.”

On House Republicans Investigations Into the Biden Family's Influence Peddling Scheme: 

“Well, we have a number of tools at our disposal, Maria. So first, I want to take a step back. It’s because the Republicans are in the majority that we have uncovered all of this evidence, of the fact that Joe Biden is compromised, the fact that Hunter Biden sold access to the sitting Vice President of United States, Joe Biden, his father, and took tens of millions of dollars to the Biden family from China and Russia. This was while Joe Biden was Vice President, Maria. If Republicans were not in the majority, the American people would not know that. They would not know. They would not have heard from the IRS credible whistleblowers. So we’re going to continue to follow the facts wherever they may lead. We have every tool at our disposal: the appropriations tools, the contempt tools, and other constitutional responsibilities as Members of Congress. And you know, I am proud to stand in the breach for this fight to save this country, to save who we are as the United States of America.”

“Well, Maria, we will look at every option. I have always said we will use every tool at our disposal. But unlike the Democrats, we’re going to do the proper investigation, and we have great committee chairs in Jim Jordan, Jamie Comer, and Jason Smith who are conducting this hearing this week. And we will follow the evidence and continue to shine a spotlight on again the fact that the President of the United States is compromised and that there’s been criminal behavior within the Biden family.”

On Countering Communist China: 

“Well, you’re exactly right, Maria. Joe Biden is weak on China. The fact that whether you have John Kerry who is, you know, basically an ambassador for this Administration, or sending Secretary Blinken, meanwhile Communist China is conducting significant cyber espionage, this recent news that there was hacking of cabinet level officials conducted by Communist China. We stand strong as Republicans, and certainly, President Trump, the leading Republican nominee, stands strong when it comes to countering Communist China. My legislation will ensure that no U.S. taxpayer dollars go towards funding any higher ed. institution that is taking money or partnerships with Communist Chinese higher ed. We’ve seen a history of Communist China trying to make inroads in our education system through their Confucius Institutes, and it was us as Republicans that banned Confucius Institutes. So we need to shield and ensure that no taxpayer dollars go towards funding Communist Chinese propaganda.”

On Condemning Rep. Jayapal’s Anti-Semitic Remarks And Standing With Israel:

“Well, look at her words. It is a vile, anti-Semitic statement, and this is becoming more and more pervasive in today’s Democrat Party, and the silence is deafening from the Democrat  leadership. House Republicans stand strongly with Israel, it’s one of our greatest and most important allies. We are honored to host the President of Israel, Isaac Herzog, for a joint session address. It’s a high honor, and it also comes on the heels of Speaker McCarthy delivering a speech at the Knesset when he visited Israel. I just came back from a CODEL in Israel Congressional Delegation, I helped lead that just a few months ago, and we need to continue to strengthen our relationship. But it is Democrats who have anti-Semitism within their caucus, and it needs to be condemned. House Republicans are proud to condemn it. Today, we’re hosting a press conference highlighting how it’s House Republicans that will always stand strongly with Israel, who, by the way, is the greatest beacon of democracy in the Middle East.”
