Newly elected Republican congressional leaders are planning to investigate Biden after winning the House majority in midterm elections.
Kevin McCarthy, who is expected to be the next House Speaker, revealed Republicans are aiming to investigate Biden on various issues, including America’s haphazard withdrawal from Afghanistan to the chaotic southern border situation.
House Republicans Will Start Investigating Biden
House Republicans were wanting to investigate Biden right from the beginning of his presidency.
Multiple GOP leaders even submitted articles of impeachment in Congress to hold Biden accountable, but the Democrats’ majority in Congress was hindering Republicans from starting any investigations against the president.
Now that Republicans officially flipped the House, they will formally start investigating Biden. McCarthy stated Republicans are willing to investigate Biden on various issues.
According to McCarthy, Biden is vulnerable to facing congressional investigations on the origins of the coronavirus pandemic, the poor administrative performance of the Department of Homeland Security on border issues, and whether an open southern border is inviting terrorists into the United States.

Likewise, Republican Congressman James Comer insisted that Republicans would prioritize investigating Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings. Comer also added Republicans would try to find out if the first family is involved in abusing Biden’s power in its controversial overseas businesses.
In addition to that, Comer noted that Americans deserve to know if Biden is compromising national interests for the sake of his family’s gains.
Apart from Biden, Comer is also aiming to investigate Biden’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and FBI director Christopher Wray.
Fauci is accused of hiding COVID origins, while Garland and Wray are believed to be politicizing the Justice Department and the FBI, respectively.

House Republicans Must Unite To Investigate Biden
Republicans need to unite if they want to investigate Biden, due to their slim House majority.
The GOP is likely to control the House by a couple of seats only; so even if a few Republicans decide not to vote along partisan lines, Biden will be able to evade the investigations.
McCarthy also claimed all Republicans must work as a team, or every individual of the party will lose otherwise. Furthermore, McCarthy stated the era of one-party rule in America is over now; so the White House should get ready to face checks and balances.
House Republicans have nominated McCarthy as their candidate for speakership. However, another conservative congressman, Andy Biggs, is expected to challenge McCarthy when the House gathers to select its next speaker.
Currently, McCarthy is facing setbacks from the far-right wing of the Republican Party, which is creating division in the GOP.
If all Republicans are not willing to get along with McCarthy, Republicans can face internal infighting. This will not only hinder Biden’s prosecution, but also Republicans’ ability to pass legislation that is necessary to revoke Biden’s agenda.
