The new Republican majority in the House is planning to look into things. Since the Democrats have been looking into former President Trump without getting anywhere, they are now looking into other Democrats. Current President Biden is at the top of the list of Democrats to look into.
Some Republicans in the House want to get rid of Biden if the GOP wins the House. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., is one of the most outspoken members of the Republican Conference. She has brought up articles of impeachment against Biden more than once.
Some Republicans in the House are being careful about impeachment and moving slowly. Such a move would get a lot of attention from the media and could backfire if voters don’t like it. Some of them were in office in the 1990s, when the GOP’s attempt to impeach Bill Clinton led to the loss of some GOP congressional seats and made the president more popular. If the House impeached Biden, the Senate would hold a trial. To convict Biden, the Senate would need a two-thirds majority, which is hard to get.
Others who are proud to be Republicans are ready to punish people who have broken the law and ignored the U.S. Constitution.
But Biden isn’t the only Democrat the House is looking into. After taking control of the House, Republicans on the Committee have started laying out their plans for next year’s investigations. They want to talk to about a dozen people in Democrat President Joe Biden’s DHS, including Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.
Mayorkas’s handling of the record number of migrants at the Southern border has been a failure. The flow of illegal immigrants and drugs has grown and gotten worse under his watch, not better.
Republicans want to call Mayorkas to testify before the House Judiciary Committee about the border investigation that is coming up. On Friday, Republicans, led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who is the ranking member, asked Mayorkas to “prompt testimony.” Not just Mayorkas but also other people.
The note tells Mayorkas and ten others with important jobs in immigration and cybersecurity to come to the meeting.
Breitbart says that:
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 called for the following officials to testify:
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 Republicans take over the Judiciary Committee in January, they will be able to set up the hearings. The testimony will be given at Committee hearings or in interviews that have been typed up. Rep. Jordan is likely to be the head of the House Judiciary Committee.
In a letter sent Friday, Republicans say that if Mayorkas doesn’t give them the documents they need by January, they “may be forced to resort to compulsory process” to get them. Slay News says that the letter is a warning.

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.
