Republican Party

These Are the Stakes, Part 2

If the Republicans take back Congress, they will try to impeach the president.

HERSHEY, Pa.—Rep. Darrell Issa, the conservative firebrand whose specialty is lobbing corruption allegations at the Obama White House, is making plans to hire dozens of subpoena-wielding investigators if Republicans win the House this fall. [...]

“I won’t use [subpoena power] to have corporate America live in fear that we’re going to subpoena everything. I will use it to get the very information that today the White House is either shredding or not producing.”

Lawmaking will grind to a stop, and the Republicans will do the only thing they can: investigate, investigate, investigate.
