    The Senate of Georgia passed a bill last week that aims to toughen up oversight measures on the state’s prosecutors, after a special purpose grand jury counsel wrapped up investigations into alleged election interference by former President Donald Trump and his allies.The Georgia State Capitol building in Atlanta, ornamented with gold leaf from Dahlonega, Ga.

    House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) expressed “a sense of urgency” on Sunday to find out whether President Joe Biden is compromised by his family’s foreign business dealings in China, Russia, and Ukraine. “There’s a sense of urgency for our investigation to be able to determine whether or not this administration is compromised,” Comer told the Wall Street Journal. Comer, who is investigating the Biden family for nine violations, including tax evasion, money laundering, and wire fraud, has sent out demand letters to Hunter and James Biden, demanding their financial records and communications with business associates to ascertain whether...

    President Joe Biden’s White House told Reps. James Comer (R-KY) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) that the administration will not comply with House Republicans’ outstanding oversight requests, according to a letter obtained by Politico. Although the Republican Party will not regain control of the House majority and committees until next month, several top House Republicans have already sent records requests to Biden’s White House in anticipation of the investigations they plan to conduct.

    The Biden White House is taking the offensive against incoming House Republicans and their plans to launch oversight actions once the next session of Congress starts, sending letters through a special counsel informing Reps. James Comer, R-Ky., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, that the administration has no plans at this time to respond to the records requests they have been making. Special Counsel Richard Sauber, in the letters obtained exclusively by Politico, said the requests are not legitimate under the Constitution because Jordan and Comer have not yet been delegated to head their committees. Sauber, a top oversight lawyer for the...

    House Democrats voted Thursday to make Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) the top Democrat on the powerful Oversight and Reform Committee in the next Congress, a pivotal role in the defense of President Biden as Republicans prepare to take control of the lower chamber next year. Raskin, a six-year House veteran, defeated Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) in the closed-door, secret-ballot vote on Capitol Hill, where the full caucus gathered to finalize their committee roster heading into the 118th Congress.

    House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith (D-WA) disparaged those calling for increased oversight over billions of U.S. taxpayer funds going to Ukraine as Russian propagandists during an event on Saturday. Smith, whose committee is supposed to provide oversight over the Pentagon, said the idea that the aid is not being overseen properly “makes me a little crazy,” according to a writeup by Politico.

    (CNN) - The House Oversight Committee on Tuesday rejected a GOP effort to seek documents related to the Biden family's international business deals, as Republicans attempt to lay the groundwork to investigate Hunter Biden under a GOP-led House. Republicans on the committee forced a vote on a so-called "resolution of inquiry," which called on the administration to hand over a wide swath of documents related to the Biden family's business deals overseas. Democrats, however, voted down the resolution following two hours of debate over the issue. (The final tally was 23 Democrats voted to report the resolution unfavorably out of...

    Rep. Adam B. Schiff, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, wants a defense policy bill to include language blocking Congress from oversight of the military and National Guard in some cases of domestic deployment. The amendment is poised to be added to the National Defense Authorization Act, which the House plans to take up this week, and it has drawn criticism from Republicans who fear Mr. Schiff is trying to preemptively block them from oversight if their party wins the House majority in November elections. “This un-American amendment will fundamentally and irreparably erode Congress’ constitutional oversight responsibility,”...

    First, let me get this out of the way: My posts are NOT for everyone! Last night a friend called and yelled at me, saying I have bad motives for posting some of the things I do. I didn’t have this answer then, but it came to me now. There’s a simple way to see if what I say is true–focus on the actual content and not what you think my motives are. Or, ask yourself if I have a history of lying to you. If I don’t, then perhaps what I say has credibility. Is that fair? But if...

    The NSA denied ‘targeting’ Tucker Carlson, but did not deny reading his emails. The NSA also did not deny that it may have accessed his communications through ‘incidental collection.’I laughed when Fox News host Tucker Carlson said a National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower told him that agency was monitoring his emails to leak them in an attempt to take his show off the air. From my 19 years as a CIA analyst and five years with House Intelligence Committee staff, I found this impossible to believe, for three reasons.First, I believed NSA’s huge and lumbering bureaucracy would never agree to...

    Facebook created the Oversight Board to help solve its most difficult content moderation decisions. But though the body is often referred to as “Facebook’s Supreme Court,” Facebook executives have suggested that some of their peers could one day benefit from the board’s services, too. In a 2019 letter outlining “Facebook’s commitment to the Oversight Board,” Mark Zuckerberg hinted that the board’s purview could one day extend beyond just Facebook. “We expect the board will only hear a small number of cases at first, but over time we hope it will expand its scope and potentially include more companies across the...

    If an appeals court does not grant Congress access to President Donald Trump's financial records quickly, lawmakers will "almost certainly" miss their chance to review them before the end of Trump's term, House Counsel Doug Letter argued Monday. In a new filing with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, Letter urged the judges to resist calls to send the case back to a lower court and instead resolve the matter — which began with a subpoena in April 2019 — promptly. "If this Court does not resolve this case now, the Trump Plaintiffs will almost certainly have succeeded in blocking...
