In three weeks, people throughout the nation will determine which party will control Congress for the remainder of Biden’s tenure.
It is still uncertain which way the Senate will swing, but it is largely predicted that the Republicans will retake the House of Representatives, albeit by a narrow majority, and Kevin McCarthy, the current House Republican leader, faces no credible opponents for the Speakership.
In the meanwhile, Republican legislators have prepared for a majority House with a flurry of letters and preservation notices throughout the Biden administration, signaling a vast array of planned inquiries ranging from the southwestern border to COVID-19.
Republicans are particularly interested in Hunter Biden’s international business connections and the illegality of such dealings. Republicans have spent years investigating what, if any, role Biden played in them. The material on Hunter’s laptop contributes to the inquiry, although not all has been disclosed.

McCarthy pledged publicly in March to reinstate Greene’s committee assignments if Republicans regain control of the House.
Greene is making her intentions apparent, as her spokesperson already told DailyMail.com that she expects to petition for impeachment again in the incoming Congress.

In the profile of the conservative firebrand published by New York Times Magazine on Monday, Greene suggested McCarthy himself could entertain the idea of impeaching President Joe Biden – something she has pushed for publicly since the day after Biden was sworn in.
On McCarthy approaching a hypothetical impeachment, Greene compared him to herself, ‘My style would be a lot more aggressive, of course.’
‘For him, I think the evidence needs to be there,’ she explained. ‘But I think people underestimate him, in thinking he wouldn’t do it.’ CONTINUE READING…
