(Liberty Bell) – If the Republican Party wins back control of the House of Representatives, as is being predicted by many talking heads in the political realm, there are a number of different investigations that they have promised to open up concerning the shady activities of Democrat politicians and their family members, all of which could have serious ramifications for the future of liberals in the United States.
These investigations are critical for a number of reasons, chief among the accountability of elected officials and those who serve in official capacities within the federal government. Right now, it seems there is a two-tiered system of justice in our country, which is eroding the public’s trust and damaging our republic. Making sure that all people are equally held to the law, no matter what their status or position is imperative to the survival of America.
According to The Hill, there are five major investigations that House Republicans want to open should they take back the House, the first one concerning Hunter Biden and his dad, the current president, Joe Biden, and their family business activities.
“Rep. James Comer (Ky.), the top Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee in line to be chair of the panel, has promised hearings and probes into the Biden family’s overseas business activities,” Emily Brooks wrote in the article. “Republicans on the committee have a copy of Hunter Biden’s laptop hard drive first revealed shortly before the 2020 election, but say that salacious video and photos in the files are not the focus.”
Comer, speaking to reporters back in September, said, “The reason we’re investigating Hunter Biden is because we believe he’s compromised Joe Biden.”
One of the top priorities for the GOP in this investigation is to get access to suspicious activity reports in the Treasury Department from U.S. banks to foreign business deals from Hunter Biden and his other associates. Republicans have made it clear that the Treasury Department has refused to hand over the reports, alleging that Biden’s family members have prompted somewhere close to 150 suspicious activity reports.
“I think that’ll go a long way towards helping us be able to uncover some questions that the American people have about the ethics, and whether or not the Biden administration is truly compromised by Hunter’s shady business dealings,” Comer added.
A second investigation would involve the politicization and weaponization of the Justice Department under Joe Biden. The raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence by the FBI has led to many believing that Biden and other Democrats at various levels of his administration are attempting to use the bureau and other federal law enforcement officials to try taking out his political opponents for the upcoming 2024 presidential race, while also scaring many Americans into remaining silent and not fighting back against their tyranny for fear of having the FBI sicced on them.
“Republicans have requested documents from the National Archives and the FBI related to the decision to refer the matter of missing documents to the FBI and to execute the search warrant. After the raid, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) warned Attorney General Merrick Garland to ‘preserve your documents and clear your calendar,'” Brooks commented.
But this investigation isn’t just about Trump.
“The No. 1 thing is this weaponization of the DOJ against the American people,” House Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who is likely to chair the committee in a GOP majority, remarked at the House GOP’s platform rollout event back in September.
“Jordan has said that his office has received information from more than a dozen whistleblowers who came forward with allegations of FBI bias against conservatives, including the agency retaliating against employees with conservative views,” Brooks continued, going on to add, “In a major win for the House GOP, former FBI official Jill Sanborn will sit for a transcribed interview with the House Judiciary Committee on Dec. 2. Jordan and Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) sought testimony from Sanborn in relation to whistleblower claims that the FBI pressured agents to improperly reclassify cases as ‘domestic violent extremism.'”
Thirdly, House Republicans are still wanting to know the truth about the origins of the COVID virus and look into the various policies that were used during the thick of the pandemic. The House, controlled by Democrats, created a subcommittee concerning the coronavirus in 2020, but the GOP pointed out that they did not investigate the origins of the illness.
“A report from Republicans on the select subcommittee released Wednesday pledged to keep investigating U.S. dollars that flowed to research on coronaviruses at a Wuhan, China, lab, officials who sought to squash the lab leak hypothesis, and state policies that pushed COVID-positive patients into nursing homes,” The Hill reported.
Members of the GOP from the subcommittee put on an expert forum, during which panelists came forward and revealed that the evidence pointed to the illness originating from the lab in Wuhan.
Another important incident that the Republican Party needs to investigate is the horrendous troop withdrawal from Afghanistan that took place in the summer of 2021. Many party leaders have pledged to hold more hearings on this matter, which resulted in the deaths of 13 service members during a bombing and then the takeover of the country by the Taliban, stating there are many questions yet to be answered concerning the events that transpired that day.
“House Foreign Affairs Committee Republicans released an ‘interim report’ on the withdrawal in August, finding that the State Department ‘took very few substantive steps’ to prepare for the consequences in the months ahead of the August withdrawal,” Emily Brooks wrote for The Hill.
“The report said that the State Department failed to provide numerous materials relating to the withdrawal and forecasted the intention to use subpoena power to retrieve those documents as well as have officials sit for transcribed interviews,” Brooks stated.
And finally, but definitely not least in importance, is the crisis unfolding along the U.S.-Mexico border that has seen millions of illegal aliens flood into our country and overwhelm our system, not to mention leading to an uptick in crime and other issues.
“We will give [Homeland Security] Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas a reserved parking spot, he will be testifying so much about this,” House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) asserted at the Republicans’ “Commitment to America” rollout event last month.
“Deaths of migrants at the border, the flow of illegal drugs like fentanyl into the U.S., and the Department of Homeland Security’s ending of the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy for asylum-seekers are other likely topics of inquiry. A letter from Republicans in April accused Mayorkas of having ‘disregard for the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws,'” The Hill noted.
Several members of the GOP have introduced articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in the current Congress.
“This is his moment in time to do his job. But at any time if someone is derelict in their job, there is always the option of impeaching somebody,” McCarthy proclaimed at the time.
