House GOP Primed to Hit Biden With Avalanche of Investigations

January 03, 2023

But GOP lawmakers have been setting the groundwork for wide-ranging investigations and oversight that, at least in part, will serve as payback for probes of former President Donald Trump by Democrats. At the center of the investigations will be the House Judiciary Committee, expected to be led by Ohio Representative Jim Jordan, and the Oversight Committee led by James Comer of Kentucky. Judiciary Republicans also will be pursuing investigations of tech and social media companies that Republicans accuse of censoring conservative voices. That includes adding staff to the White House counsel’s office, which would take the lead in responding to congressional inquiries. Democrats held on to control of the Senate, which will let them stifle GOP investigations of the Biden administration in that chamber.
