With Senate control remains up in the air in November, Republican politicians already are starting to talk as to what their prospective priorities will be when they head critical committees with subpoena authority. “Like everything else?” Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, told The Hill.
“It’s like a mosquito in a nudist colony; it’s a target-rich environment,” he says, adding, “and I’ll be that mosquito.” “It’s difficult to predict what targets I’ll choose. They’re all going to be juicy.” Whether it’s Hunter Biden, his laptop, the border, Dr. Anthony Fauci, coronavirus officials, Afghanistan, or the military, Republicans are preparing to put Democrats and the Biden administration on the defense.
While Johnson will not be able to lead a full committee again due to term limits, he will most likely chair the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee’s permanent subcommittee on investigations. Others, such as Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., have a clear agenda: Coronavirus and Fauci. Sen.
Josh Hawley, R-Mo., is focusing his attention on the catastrophic Afghanistan pullout and the military. However, the Bidens and the administration – which claimed to be “the most open” – will be scrutinized and scrutinized by Congress, particularly when it comes to the “laptop from hell.”
“Big Tech’s suppression of a story that the leftist media has now admitted is genuine simply demonstrates that a Republican House majority must take significant action to reign in Big Tech censors next year,” made a point of saying Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-N.Y., who faces a difficult reelection battle due to redistricting.
“All possibilities should be considered, including investigations into their behavior and its influence on the democratic process.” Paul has previously been vocal about keeping Fauci responsible from the sidelines, but if confirmed, he would become the head of the Senate’s Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee.

“There’s so much more we need to look at in terms of what occurred with our federal health authorities,” Johnson told The Hill. “There is a lack of openness in these agencies,” he added. “Their unwillingness to cooperate with proper legislative oversight. I mean, I believe that’s an inquiry in and of itself, as to why Congress can’t perform real oversight any longer.” Johnson has already been hard at work attempting to delve into Hunter Biden’s global entanglements, notably with Ukraine, Russia, and China.
Two of those nations are currently at odds, while another is rumored to be plotting to recapture Taiwan under President Joe Biden.
“I’d like to kind of tie it up,” Johnson told The Hill. “We’ve been attempting to obtain his travel records for several years.” Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel started to call for “accountability” on Sunday evening, whilst also former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell posted on twitter and decided to tell Newsmax about the importance of getting to the bottom of the intelligence officials who claimed – without evidence – that the Biden laptop story was “Russian disinformation.”
“It’s unfortunate – we’re all talking about misinformation in Russia and other totalitarian nations, and we’re finding that we have it right here at home,” said Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is likely to play an important role on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which was formerly led by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, the last time the GOP held the gavel.
“The most basic accountability requires firing those responsible for the ‘Russian disinformation’ lie about the Biden family’s corruption, including and especially former intelligence officials who rose to the top of cable news because they pushed wild and unsubstantiated Russia conspiracy theories about President Trump,” Cruz told the Post. “Furthermore, Big Tech officials who engaged in suppressing the facts should provide sworn evidence to Congress and the American people.”
