House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is under scrutiny for her alleged false claims that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was responsible for delaying passage of a new bill to replenish funds in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), according to the Daily Wire.

Fox News anchor Bret Baier said, β€œLet’s just set the record straight here.”

“There was a clean bill that once they found out that the small business pot was going to be dry, there was a clean bill to put more money in it.”

β€œNancy Pelosi did not go forward with that, period, the end, stop there.”

β€œSo yes, they wanted to do other things, Democrats did,” Baier continued.

β€œBut to have an answer that says that it was Mitch McConnell who delayed is really political jujitsu.”

“And you have to have somebody that pushes back and says, wait a second, in that time that there was a delay, there are X number of small businesses around the country that had to make the decision, β€˜I have not gotten the money, so I have to let these people go.’”

β€œSo when the number goes up 4.4 million on unemployment, there is a reason that it goes up that way,” Baier concluded.

β€œAnd that delay is part of it.”
