The Top 5 Investigations House Republicans Plan to Launch on the Biden Administration

Biden

As a new Republican majority gets set to enter the U.S. House of Representatives next year, party leadership and incoming committee chairs are already busy at work preparing a full schedule for the next two years. Despite Republicans not having won the Senate, and with it the ability to stop the far left Biden agenda, the House GOP conference will be able to wield the committee gavel to launch a slew of investigations into the Biden White House and federal agencies. In fact, incoming Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight & Reform Rep. James Comer (R-KY), said that his committee, which has nearly unlimited jurisdiction over federal agencies, plans to look into “40 or 50 different things” when Republicans take control of the House next year. So what are they? Here are the top five investigations that House Republicans plan to launch on the Biden administration.

Joe Biden and the Biden Crime Family

A few days after Republicans officially won control of the House, Comer and incoming House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), held a press conference on Capitol Hill where they announced their intention to investigate Hunter Biden’s shady foreign business deals and the degree to which his dad, now President Joe Biden, was involved. “We’re not trying to prove Hunter Biden is a bad actor—he is,” said Comer. “Our investigation is of Joe Biden.” Comer and his Republican colleagues on the Oversight Committee also announced the release of an interim report that states “A review of Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, as well as information from whistleblowers, reveals a decade-long pattern of influence peddling, national security risks, and political cover-ups. Biden family members used their connections with Joe Biden to enrich themselves through the expectation of access to Joe Biden and promises about what a future Biden Administration might do for them. There are numerous unanswered questions raised by these suspicious activities that warrant further investigation.”

COVID-19: Origin, Lockdowns, and Trillions of Dollars

There are several aspects surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic that Republicans will try to get to the bottom of, such as the origin of the virus, state government mandated lockdowns, and an accounting of the trillions of dollars of taxpayer funds that went out through the Paycheck Protection Program, unemployment insurance fraud and other means. In addition, the Oversight committee plans to look into the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Dr. Fauci’s role in the pandemic response. “One of the things Republicans campaigned on was holding this administration accountable. I’m doing my role,” Comer told Punchbowl News. We’re in charge of investigations: Waste, fraud and abuse. That’s our job.

 Immigration Crisis at the U.S.-Mexico Border

A top priority for the House Republican conference will be to find out what the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is doing along America’s southern border. Since Joe Biden was sworn in as President, over four million people have been apprehended according to data released by the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), about 2 million per year. And that’s only the ones we’ve caught. Biden’s border crisis will be in the spotlight for the House Oversight Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee which specifically has jurisdiction. In fact, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), the House GOP leader and likely next Speaker of the House, traveled to El Paso, TX after the election where he called on DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign or potentially face impeachment, a bold a telling statement of just how serious Republican leadership plans to focus the conference on this issue next year.

Politicization of the Department of Justice

It is no secret how incoming Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) feels about President Joe Biden and the far left liberal establishment. Days before the midterm election, Jordan and Judiciary Committee Republicans released a report on politicization and anti-conservative bias in the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and Department of Justice (DOJ) more broadly. This report offers important clues into a slew of alleged corruption practices that the committee will focus on next year, from raiding a former president’s home to the IRS targeting conservative charities. “The Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the stewardship of Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, is broken,” Jordan tweeted in early November.

Afghanistan

President Joe Biden’s hasty, foolish, and deadly decision to retreat from Afghanistan and turn the country over to the Taliban in a matter of days will be a priority focus of incoming House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX). America’s victory in Afghanistan was sealed over a decade ago, so why did Biden make the decision to withdraw despite the reported advice against it from military generals? How many billions of dollars of military equipment was given to the Taliban and what kind of weapons systems? Will sensitive American military technology fall into the wrong hands? How many Americans and others were stranded? There are so many questions that haven’t been answered, mostly because Biden’s Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has refused numerous invitations to testify before Congress. Even Senate Democrats were stunned at the Biden administration’s obstruction of Congress over one of the most pivotal moments in 21st century history.

No doubt, House Republicans will have their hands full and there are so many areas where Joe Biden, his family, his administration, and his poor judgment have cost America. Americans voted in a Republican majority because we want a check on the Biden White House. When it comes to the Bidens, we have a lot more questions than answers and it’s up to House Republicans to get to the truth.

My prediction for these investigations is this. Republicans will piss away a sh*t ton of taxpayer dollars and the end result is that no one will be prosecuted, no one will go to prison and no one will be held accountable. Same old song, same old dance same old dog and pony show.

Why would you tell the democrats what you’re going to investigate? Why give them time to hide & destroy evidence linking the Big Guy to China

The last time I looked our Constitution said that Congress was the “LEGISLATIVE” branch of the government NOT the “INVESTIGATIVE” branch. The LEGISLATURE is where we have our personal individual REPRESENTATION. Bring back REAL REPRESENTATION not endless INVESTIGATIONS! We The People Are The Government, Sovereign and Free.

How about investigating how today’s Democratic Party Leadership is Communist? . . . It’s like the entire Republican Party is afraid to ever call them that!

I agree with you, Paul E. Thank you for putting things in a way I can understand. What I am reading in all of these opinions from all of you commenting here – is that we all are pretty frustrated with Republicans failure to follow thru – reminds me of the investigation into Bill Clinton’s lying about his affair and Newt Gingrich and fellow Republicans doing nothing about it (mainly because Newt was also having an affair). Despite all that, I’m praying that this Republican Congress will put on their big boy pants( pun intended) and actually follow through!!!!!

This all sounds good, but nothing will become of it as usual. We had Trump in the White House for four years and Hillary Clinton is still not in prison despite the blatantly obvious crimes she committed. There will be a lot of money spent but absolutely nobody will be held accountable, except for some expendables that will fall on their swords. The fix is in and has been in for a long time.

With all of that wall building and swamp draining, there was no time to lock her up.

RSB is correct. Wake me up when they cut the budget or balance the budget or cut the deficit.
Except for increased spending, Washington is designed to accomplish little and they do it well

This will make for interesting and controversial tv but not much else. Hearings never result
in any true penalty. Just admonishment. They will be a transfusion to the anemic programming of
Fox and CNN who will attempt to make major news of the proceedings but if we think these
hearings will yield actual results, forget it. Call me when someone goes to jail.

TREASON CHARGES SHOULD BE THE FIRST.

You can call for it, the reality is Treason is always bantered around, but never used, except for spying, which is even more rare. Having said all that it would be nice to see one person charged with treason and the prosecution handled full on. It would act as a giant earthquake and cause others to consider the recklessness of their behavior.

I want to see what happens if it is just alot of Washington BS again I want to see what happens if they do what they say then it is about time, I want to see how they fix the border send back all the illegals and stop the ones coming in without a secure border we can control nothing that includes drugs coming in, it is time to stop all the lies once and for all build that wall and hire more border agents with more arrest power. want to see what they do to get the inflation under control if possible right now at least start and try to fix stop spending taxpayers will have years to pay back all this wild spending to many give a ways according to Biden everything is free like he is footing the bill more lies. Will see what happens next year.

And like always, nothing will come of it why voters keep electing these rinos, like McConnell and Romney are beyond me. The only reason I can come up with is they are as corrupt as the Marxist regime we have now.

One thing the Republicans can do is replenish the money that was borrowed from Social Security that was used to support other cash eating programs, like giving money to other countries who don’t support us. Need to take care of the home front first. Due believe it was in the millions of dollars.

The Democrats have been stealing from both Social Security and Medicare since the Vietnam War. At first, they left IOU’s, now nothing. Even Obama stole over $700 million from Medicare to create his Obamacare Health ripoff. The GOP needs to return SS and Medicare to Trust status before it goes broke and they need to grow a backbone and start holding Democrats accountable and even incarceration in prison (Obama, Clinton, Holder, Lynch, Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Podesta, etc.

If after these investigations all that will be done is a slap on the wrist, I say forget about it. There are many, many other things that need to be done and approved for a Nation than a showboat investigation. If ALL these investigation are just for show, then the Republicans will appear to be acting like the democrats. So if there is an investigation, do it and charge the Biden’s and whoever else whose doing this country wrong.

What a shame. Now the republicans will be spinning their wheels on known governments deadly actions against our freedoms. Bad boy Biden and his crime family need to be throughly exposed and their crimes against America brought to immediate justice. Frankly I hope they get active. I believe they will spend more time jockeying for power than curing the evils within.
