If GOP Wins House In 2022 Midterms – Minority Leader McCarthy Plans 7 Investigations Into Biden Admin On Day 1
Quote
As 2021 comes to a close, many new outlets and consultants have already started sounding the alarm, a “Red Wave” is probably coming in the 2022 mid-terms.


This reality would be quite significant considering the abuse Democrats have exerted during two failed impeachment attempts of former President Trump, the fake Russian investigation, and the Biden administration directing the DOJ to investigate parents who objected to CRT being taught to their children.

In addition, the viciousness towards conservatives during the ongoing January 6th commission is ripe for retribution if the power shifts back to some of these same people under scrutiny.

Of them, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) already has plans to launch at least seven investigations into Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration if Republicans win back control of the House of Representatives in 2022.

“McCarthy plans to beef up staff, counsel and other resources to be ready to extract information beginning Day 1 if the GOP gets the gavel,” Axios reported on Sunday, noting that McCarthy’s office already has several investigations planned.

The plans show House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy would make use of majority powers for the last two years of President Biden’s term if, as expected, the GOP wins the majority in next year’s midterms.

There's almost a 50-50 chance that Kevin waves bye-bye before then.  There's no fire inside him.

Agreed. He's more worried about his haircut and his preening than he is being a badass.

Kevin is really a GOP elite guy. The only problem with that is there's no money in it. He's playing both sides of the fence (when he's not getting a $200 haircut).

I'd rather see Cory Mills in as Speaker. Or even Crenshaw, if Crenshaw can get his eye patch out of his ass vis a vis his own red flag laws and 2A.

From the linked article:

Quote
Investigations planned by House Republicans parallel with their legislative agenda included in a June 29th press release titled – McCarthy Unveils Republican Task Forces, Announces Leaders and Members

* IRS: Leak of a “vast cache of IRS information” about billionaires to ProPublica.

* National Security Agency: Tucker Carlson last summer accused the spy agency of targeting his show’s communications. The NSA said he was never an “intelligence target.”

* Parents: Attorney General Merrick Garland’s vow to mobilize the FBI against “threats of violence against school board members,” after the National School Boards Association used the phrase “domestic terrorism.” The association apologized for its letter.

* Border: Record levels of illegal immigration.

* COVID: Origins of the virus, and CDC communications about school closures and mask mandates.

* Afghanistan: Decisions behind the withdrawal, and an accounting of Americans who remain stranded.

* JEDI: A disputed cloud-computing contract.

That last item is not familiar to me, but I suspect it's large-$$ contract with no or sham competitive bidding, +/- a Biden/Dem crony/operative.

He's talking a good game, but count me among the "I'll believe it when I see it". Even  if there are investigations, I would expect them not to do anything significant. Republicans press the advantage? Hmm...  :whatever:

Agreed. Even if he does launch one or more of those cited investigations, he would do well to balance those efforts with REAL House business, like getting our fiscal house in order, scaling back government (not just reducing the amount of increase year after year), and otherwise pass laws. It should not be lost on him or whoever the new Speaker is that Congress is viewed even worse than #SharterJoe -- and that's saying a ton.

Fauci isn't listed by name in SVPete's list, but Jim Jordan says Fauci is No. 1 on HIS list.

Quote
Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan is the most likely candidate to take over the House Judiciary Committee if the GOP wins back Congress next year. Ask him what he wants to investigate and who he wants to subpoena, and he doesn't hesitate. Not even for even a second.

"Fauci," he told Just the News, referring to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the U.S. infectious disease specialist overseeing America's pandemic response.

While the many conflicting messages and reversals of the pandemic response are ripe for investigation, Republicans like Jordan also want to press Fauci about why America was funding China's bat research on coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology through a U.S. nonprofit called EcoHealth Alliance and why NIH revived a dangerous form of experimentation known as gain of function in 2017.

In the old days, Conservatives would be okay with multiple revenge-hearings after multiple revenge-hearings, but we can't do that now, as McCarthy is too dense to realize.  Americans are 'investigated-out'. 

It will have to be one investigation at a time.  Put the right people in Committee-slots and pick a priority.

Yup -- or whatever the LSM will somehow portray in a balanced way (yeah, I know, in a pig's ass). But since Congress can't control the flying monkeys in the Dem circus, they would do well to stick to the agenda, investigate the big ticket things (immigration, election security, Fauci and his thugs, etc.) while marching forward with the NEW agenda of trashing the proglodytes' agenda. Maybe, just maybe, these professional politician Republicans can figure out just how to walk and chew bubble gum at the same time.

Nah. I didn't think so either.  :whatever:

Firstly, slash Fauci out-of-a-job.  That fast-tracks one 'investigation' and we're saving money.

Then loop-around and nail a nobody like Swallow-well as a precursor to tying-up the FBI over Hunter.

That should do for openers.

Fauci and other bureaucrats like him are protected by an unbelievably complex system of red tape within the civil service. It takes a lot to fire one of these cretins, especially since Fauci would surely appeal any decision made by the HHS Secretary (Becerra) or the NIH Director (Acting Director Tabak) to whom Fauci reports.

Even the President can't fire Fauci, though it's clear that Trump wanted to when he was president.
