(NRCC News) – House Republicans are gearing up to hold the Biden regime accountable after they take control of the lower chamber of Congress on Jan. 3, 2023. They’ve put at least 42 regime officials on notice ahead of what is sure to be a flurry of GOP-led investigations starting with the new congressional session.
Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee have already sent letters to key members of the Biden regime requesting testimony for the upcoming investigations into border security, suspected FBI and DOJ bias, and the potential criminal activity of Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
“The American people elected a new House Republican majority because the past two years of one-party Democrat rule have failed America,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who is set to become House speaker in the next Congress. “These actions by the Biden administration deserve oversight and accountability, which Republicans will pursue in the new Congress. … Every congressional committee has an oversight responsibility, and we intend to finally get the answers the American people deserve.”
The House Judiciary Committee sent five letters on Nov. 18 requesting testimony from certain Biden regime officials, including in the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, the DOJ, the FBI, and the Department of Education.
The Washington Examiner has given a breakdown of the regime officials who are expected to soon testify before Congress.
In a letter to White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, a group of 19 Republicans led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) requested testimony from four White House staff members in relation to “the Biden Administration’s misuse of federal criminal and counterterrorism resources to target concerned parents at school board meetings.”
The request is in response to a memo issued by Attorney General Merrick Garland’s October 2021 memo in which he instructed law enforcement to address alleged threats against school board officials, teachers and school administrators.
Republicans believe that a letter from the National School Boards Association, which led to Garland’s memo, was actually a product of collusion with the Executive Office of the President.
The House Judiciary Committee requests testimony from the following White House officials:
-Mary C. Wall — Senior adviser of the COVID-19 Response Team
-Julie C. Rodriguez — Director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs
-Katherine Pantangco — Policy adviser for intergovernmental affairs
-Nezly Silva — Senior policy analyst for intergovernmental affairs
House Republicans have also requested the testimony of three officials inside the Department of Education for its investigation into the Biden administration’s alleged involvement with the NSBA letter. They are:
-Kimberly Watkins-Foote — Director of the national engagement division
-Larry Bowden — Senior adviser to the secretary
-Nicholas Simmons — Special assistant to the Office of the Secretary
Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee is also seeking testimony from several officials within the Department of Homeland Security, including from Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas himself who has been an abject failure.
The southern border has been in shambles since Biden took over the White House nearly two years ago and Mayorkas has repeatedly outright refused to do his job and secure the border. He has repeatedly failed to protect American interests and has done nothing to stop the invasion on the southern border.
Mayorkas has a large target on his back for impeachment once Republicans take control and rightfully so. He has completely failed in every way and his inaction could be even more nefarious than just neglect and incompetence.
In addition to Mayorkas, the House Judiciary Committee also requested testimony from the following DHS officials:
-Ur M. Jaddou — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
-Tae Johnson — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
-Kerry E. Doyle — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
-Blas Nunez-Neto — U.S. Customs and Border Protection
-Raul L. Ortiz — Chief of U.S. Border Patrol
-Jennifer Daskal — Office of the General Counsel
-Adam Hunter — Office of Strategy, Policy, and Plans
-Jen Easterly — Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency
-Geoff Hale — Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency
-Julia Treanor — Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency
The Department of Justice is the most heavily focused on department within the Biden regime. House Republicans informed AG Garland that they would be seeking the testimony of 15 officials at the start of the new year, the most of any of the departments that received the Nov. 18 notices.
The investigations are likely to focus on the bias of the departments’ investigations into former president Donald Trump. Republicans are expected to focus on the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.
The DOJ is investigating Trump for violations of the Espionage Act and obstruction of justice, according to court documents. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and many Americans believe that the DOJ is corrupt and acting strictly out of political bias.
The House Judiciary Committee requests testimony from the following DOJ officials:
-Merrick B. Garland — Attorney general
-Lisa Monaco — Deputy attorney general
-Vanita Gupta — Associate attorney general
-Kenneth A. Polite Jr. — Assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division
-Matthew G. Olsen — Assistant attorney general for the National Security Division
-Kristen Clarke — Assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division
-Jonathan Kanter — Assistant attorney general for the Antitrust Division
-Brian Boynton — Principal deputy assistant attorney general for the Civil Division
-Jacqueline C. Romero — U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
-Mark H. Wildasin — U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee
-Matthew M. Graves — U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia
-Mark A. Totten — U.S. attorney for the Western District of Michigan
-Susan Hennessey — Senior counsel, National Security Division
-Margy O’Herron — Office of the Deputy Attorney General
-David Neal — Executive Office for Immigration Review
Lastly, Republicans have also requested testimony from FBI officials over allegations that the agency has been acting out of political bias towards Trump and conservative Americans.
Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee have requested information and documents related to the agency’s conduct for nearly two years but said the FBI has “failed to respond sufficiently,” according to a letter sent to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Nov. 18.
The House Judiciary Committee requests testimony from the following FBI officials:
-Christopher A. Wray — FBI director
-Paul Abbate — FBI Deputy director
-Timothy Langan — Executive assistant director of the Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services Branch
-Jennifer L. Moore — Executive assistant director of the Human Resources Branch
-Steven M. D’Antuono — Assistant director in charge of the Washington Field Office
-Carlton L. Peeples — Deputy assistant director of the Criminal Investigative Division
-Kevin Vorndran — Deputy assistant director of the Counterterrorism Division
-Laura Dehmlow — Section chief of the Foreign Influence Task Force
-Elvis Chan — Special agent with the San Francisco Field Office
Things are sure to get interesting at the start of the new year if Republicans follow through and take action to finally get some justice for Americans. Finally, the Biden regime, and all its tentacles, will have some much needed oversight.
