Now that the GQP has gained control of the House of Representatives and they finally elected
a figure head Speaker of the House after fifteen tries, a new subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee headed by Jim (Gym) Jordan will form and focus on investigating the investigators. Or more appropriately, they will investigate perceived wrongdoing by the federal government against conservatives, including TFG. House GQPers refer to the past investigations of TFG and other insurrectionists as the, “weaponization of the federal government.”
Gym boasts he will have the power to subpoena people but fails to remind the ‘KKKult of 2 Stupid’ that he and other members of the Seditious Caucus blew off the January 6 Committee’s subpoenas.
Language to establish the panel is tucked inside a House rules package that passed Monday. It will be empowered to probe “the expansive role of Article II authority vested in the Executive Branch to collect information on or otherwise investigate citizens of the United States, including ongoing criminal investigations,” according to a resolution expected to come up for a vote on Tuesday.
With his ultraconservative roots and pro-Trump bent, Jordan is known as an aggressive investigator and has served on politically charged panels like the Benghazi committee, which damaged Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016. Once a backbencher who had frosty relations with GOP leaders, Jordan has risen through the ranks in a reflection of the conference’s rightward shift. He’s now a key ally of Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
Jordan said he intends to probe “big tech” companies, including Twitter activities exposed by Elon Musk since his acquisition of the company, as well as the FBI and “the political nature of the Justice Department.”
