Oversight a Priority as GOP Officially Takes House

Republicans have officially won a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. One of the major priorities of the Party moving forward is to conduct congressional oversight of the Biden Administration:

After securing the House majority in the midterm elections, GOP Reps. James Comer of Kentucky and Jim Jordan of Ohio held a press conference Thursday to detail their impending investigations into the Biden administration. 

Comer, who is set to chair the House Oversight Committee, said whistleblowers have come forward to detail how Hunter Biden and his relatives "flourished and became millionaires simply by offering access to the family." 

"Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden's business deals, and is he compromised? That's our investigation," Comer said.

A report on the forthcoming investigation explains:

President Joe Biden has participated in his family’s global business ventures with America’s adversaries. He has misused his public positions to further his family’s financial interests. These actions have created the potential for President Biden to be susceptible to influence, blackmail, or extortion by a malign or foreign entity, including the Chinese Communist Party.

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.

Democrats have long called the Hunter Biden laptop story "Russian disinformation" despite evidence to the contrary:

The American people deserve a Congress that will conduct sufficient oversight activities of the administration in the White House, regardless of what party they belong to.
