White House Goes On The Offensive Over GOP Oversight Demands

(RoyalPatriot.com )- The Biden White House is going on the offensive against incoming House Republicans and their plans to start oversight actions in the next session of Congress.

According to reports, the White House sent letters through a special counsel to Reps. James Comer, R-Ky., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, told them that the administration has no plans to respond to their requests for records at the moment.

Special Counsel Richard Sauber said that the requests are not allowed by the Constitution because Jordan and Comer have not yet been put in charge of their committees.

As if that would stop a Democrat committee from doing the same.

Sauber, a top White House lawyer in charge of oversight, said that the administration would work with members of Congress in good faith. He also noted that oversight requests made during the last session of Congress would have to start over in the next session, which begins on January 3.

Reports show Jordan is expected to lead the House Judiciary Committee, and Comer is expected to lead the Oversight Committee.

In a letter to Ron Klain, the chief of staff at the White House, Jordan said that his committee might be forced to compulsory process to get the documents he had asked for if they were not sent before the 118th Congress started.

According to a report, last November, Republicans on Jordan’s committee sent letters to 42 Biden administration officials, including Klain, saying that they will need to testify in front of Congress about things like threats to school boards, border security, and claims of bias against the FBI and Department of Justice.

Jordan and Comer have said they will look into how the federal government uses counterterrorism and criminal actions at school board meetings, how President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, does business, and how troops are pulled out of Afghanistan.

Comer sent a letter to Jake Sullivan, the White House’s national security adviser, questioning the decisions that led to the withdrawal from Afghanistan. He asked the White House to give him the information by Dec. 20.
