The new Republican majority in the House has probes on its agenda. Having had enough of the Democrat administration’s fruitless investigation of former President Trump, the list of Democrats to probe is lead by current President Biden.
Some House Republicans are eager to impeach Vice President Biden if they get control of the House. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., one of the most vocal members of the Republican Conference, has submitted three articles of impeachment against Biden.
Some Republicans in the House are going with impeachment with caution. Such a move would receive significant media attention and might backfire if voters disagree, since many of them were in government during the 1990s, when the impeachment of Bill Clinton by the Republican Party resulted to the loss of certain Republican congressional seats and enhanced the president’s popularity. If Biden were impeached by the House, the Senate would convene a trial in which a two-thirds majority would be required to convict him, a difficult standard.
Other patriotic Republicans are prepared to execute individuals who have defied the law and disregarded the United States Constitution.
However, Biden is not the only Democrat under House scrutiny. In the aftermath of gaining the House majority, Committee Republicans have began laying out their investigative objectives for the next year. Their plans include examining over a dozen Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees under Democratic President Joe Biden, including DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
Mayorkas’ handling of the record-breaking influx of migrants at the southern border was certainly ineffective, as he failed to stem the flow of illegal immigrants and narcotics, which instead grew and increased.
The Republicans intend to subpoena Mayorkas to appear before the House Judiciary Committee in connection with the forthcoming border inquiry. On Friday, Republicans, backed by ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), requested “immediate testimony” from Mayorkas. Not just Mayorkas, but also others.
The message summons Mayorkas and eleven other individuals with critical immigration and cybersecurity responsibilities.
According to Breitbart:
Republicans stated in the notice that they “anticipate requiring testimony” early next year from individuals who work in U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).
They requested the testimony of the following officials:
Ur Jaddou, USCIS
Tae Johnson, ICE
Kerry E. Doyle, ICE
Blas Nunez-Neto, CBP
Chief Raul L. Ortiz, CBP
Jennifer Daskal, Office of the General Counsel
Adam Hunter, Office of Strategy, Policy, and Plan
Jen Easterly, CISA
Geoff Hale, CISA
Julia Treanor, CISA
When they assume control of the Judiciary Committee in January, Republicans will have the ability to schedule hearings. The testimony will be presented at committee hearings or transcribed interviews. Rep. Jordan is anticipated to lead the House Judiciary Committee.
More on this story via The Republic Brief:
In their letter Friday, Republicans warn they “may be forced to resort to compulsory process to obtain” the requested documentation if Mayorkas fails to provide it before January, Slay News reports.
Another possible impeachment target would be two of Biden’s Cabinet members: Attorney General Merrick Garland, for the Justice Department’s investigation into Trump’s possession of documents slated for his presidential library; documents that he himself declassified as president before he left the Oval Office.
