Republicans are keeping their campaign promises after winning the House majority, voting Tuesday to establish two new investigative panels – one targeting the Biden administration and the Justice Department and the other on China.
California Rep. Kevin McCarthy agreed to the creation of both committees as part of his concessions to win the speakership.
- The first is a select subcommittee on “the weaponization of the federal government” that will investigate the actions of the executive branch. Republicans say the subcommittee will also focus on the Department of Justice’s search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in August.
- The second is a select committee aimed at increasing the United States’ competitiveness with China.
Jim Jordan will lead the committee on the weaponization of the federal government. He gave a great speech identifying that he will look into the federal government’s attacks on Americans’ first Amendment rights.
