Again, Politico’s email thingie, compares and contrast with the Democrats:
REPUBLICANS SHARPEN THEIR KNIVES — Meanwhile, Republicans will be left to manage a narrow majority, likely no more than four seats, with weeks of internal wrangling still to play out as GOP leader KEVIN McCARTHY scrambles to win 218 speaker votes.
Pelosi’s big reveal obscured House Republicans’ first official day as a majority-in-waiting — and the announcement this morning from two incoming committee chairmen – Reps. JAMES COMER (R-Ky.) and JIM JORDAN (R-Ohio) — that they would launch an investigation into Biden’s possible involvement in his family’s business dealings.
Comer, who is expected to lead the House Oversight Committee, cited whistleblowers in claiming “a wide range of criminality” in the Biden family’s overseas financial dealings. The allegations, he said, raise “troubling questions about whether President Biden is a national security risk” and if he “is compromised by foreign governments.”
“We want the bank records,” Comer said. “We’re trying to stay focused on: Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden’s business deals and is he compromised? That’s our investigation.” Read the GOP report
Jordan, in line to lead the House Judiciary Committee, promised to investigate reported political activity in the FBI and “the political nature of the Justice Department.”
It’s a reminder that while Democrats have been buoyed by Election Dayresults that weren’t half as bad as predicted, a majority is still a majority — and it comes with subpoena power. After watching Democrats bedevil former president DONALD TRUMP for four years, they’re more than ready for some payback.
