(FixThisNation.com) – During the midterm election campaigns, House Republicans had maintained that investigating the Biden administration and providing more oversight were going to be key parts of what the GOP majority could achieve. With the start of the 118th Congress, and House Republicans officially having the majority they have already started their efforts into looking into President Biden’s and his family’s business affairs, as well as examining the Biden administration’s response to key issues.
Following a week-long battle to determine the House Speaker, the Republican party was quick to take action with Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. at the speaker’s gavel.
The House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio has already started the investigation into the politicization of key agencies and organizations, including the FBI and the Justice Department. Another investigation has been launched into the Justice Department’s probe into Biden’s case of mishandling classified material which was found in his possession. The classified documents date back to the Obama administration.
The first batch of documents was originally found on Nov. 2 in a Washington, D.C. office that Biden had used after leaving the office of vice president. Less than a dozen documents were found at the Penn Biden Center office at the time. More searches yielded further documents found in Biden’s Delaware home, where the second batch of documents was located in a storage space in Biden’s garage. Finally, the third batch of documents was also found in Biden’s Delaware home.
Jordan has been critical not only of the fact that these documents were found in Biden’s possession but also of the fact that Robert Hur was appointed as special counsel to investigate the case. Jordan has also said that the timeline between the documents being found and the Department of Justice starting its investigation is unclear.
