The current Department of Justice (DOJ) led by Attorney General Merrick Garland has shown a disregard for legislative power and congressional oversight, indicating a lack of understanding of the new standards set by the previous Democratic Congress.
It is time for Republicans in Congress to take action and hold the Biden administration accountable through the rules established by the Democrats.
Recently, the January 6 Committee set a “no mercy” standard for those who defy Congress, and the Biden administration has taken full advantage.
However, the DOJ’s decision to ignore document requests from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, is unacceptable and shows a return to pre-Trump precedent. Republicans must take advantage of the new standards set by the Democrats.
The Biden administration, along with its cabinet and senior staff, believe they are immune to accountability due to the lack of scrutiny from Democrats in Congress and the biased mainstream media. However, the recent election of a Republican majority in the House of Representatives has brought much-needed accountability to the government.
Republicans must use their power, including subpoenas and the ability to hold individuals and entities in contempt of Congress, to prevent the executive branch from becoming an untouchable monarchy.
Subpoenas that are ignored must lead to contempt of Congress votes and criminal referrals. Republicans must not back down in their fight for accountability and transparency in the government.
In conclusion, the Democrats have set a new standard and the Biden administration must not be allowed to return to the old rulebook. Republicans in the House of Representatives must demand transparency, send subpoenas, and hold the Biden administration accountable through the new rules established by the Democrats.
It is a crucial time for the country, with a growing national debt, the spread of critical race theory, the influx of fentanyl at the southern border, and censorship of free speech. Republicans must stand their ground in upholding the rule of law and bringing accountability to the government.
