The newly constituted committee on the weaponization of the federal government, according to Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., may oversee a House probe into sensitive materials found at the Penn Biden Center and at President Biden’s personal house in Wilmington, Delaware and other documents found in one more location.
This week, the House approved a resolution establishing the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, which will be chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who will simultaneously serve as chair of the broader Judiciary Committee. There will be 15 people on the subcommittee: six Democrats and nine Republicans.
After new developments on the so-called “Garage gate” case that involves several documents found at 3 different locations that belong to the President Biden, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said to the press that Congress needs to address this investigation if they wanted to keep their promise of holding the Biden Administration accountable:
“It could go before that committee or others, but I think Congress has to investigate this…” “… Here’s an individual that’s been in office for more than 40 years. Here’s an individual that said on ’60 Minutes’ that was so concerned about President Trump’s documents… and now we find it, this is a vice president, keeping it for years out in the open in different locations.” McCarthy stated.
McCarthy also compared the case with the former president Trump’s case, that involved FBI Raids to his private property at Mar-a-Lago, FL and that is also under investigation by the DOJ. According to McCarthy, the Biden administration used the government as a weapon against Donald Trump when the Mar-a-Lago raids happened:
“You look at President Biden. He wasn’t president. He was vice president. He held these in different locations right out in the open. He criticized President Trump…”
“Did he utilize the Justice Department to raid President Trump? Do you think that was right? They knew this has happened to President Biden before the election, but they kept it a secret from the American public…” “This is what makes Americans not trust their government,” McCarthy said to the press.
On Thursday, Attorney General Merrick B. Garland named a special counsel to look into how secret records wound up in Vice President Biden’s home and office, posing a fresh legal risk to the White House.
According to an order signed by the attorney general, Garland tasked Robert K. Hur, a seasoned prosecutor who served in the Trump administration, to look into “the possible unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or other records discovered” at Mr. Biden’s think tank in Washington and his home in Wilmington, Delaware.
