Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California is likely to become Speaker of the House after the 2022 midterm elections.
McCarthy takes a lot of heat from conservatives, but he might surprise them as Speaker.
He is reportedly preparing Republican staffers for investigations that will take place once the GOP controls the House again.
Democrats have set a precedent that they might not like very much in the near future.

GOP Leader McCarthy Readies Staffers For Post Midterm Investigations
GOP leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) is preparing to train Republican staffers for post-midterm investigations — probes dealing with some of the most highly criticized political moments of President Joe Biden’s presidency.
In an email sent to staffers on Tuesday obtained by The Daily Caller, the House minority leader and ranking member Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) invited staffers to “informational briefing(s)” to prepare them for upcoming investigations.
“Leader Kevin McCarthy and Ranking Member Rodney Davis would like to invite you to attend this informational briefing with Jon Skladany, Chief Oversight Counsel for the Committee on Financial Services, and Rachel Kaldahl, Republican Staff Director for the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight,” the email said.
“This briefing will review the basics of performing effective oversight investigations and will highlight best practices to fulfill Congress’s Constitutional oversight obligations.”
Republicans have a long list of matters they plan to investigate should they take the House in November. These include Biden’s border policies, the origins of COVID-19, coronavirus testing, the Afghanistan withdrawal, and, more pressingly as of late, Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
You have to wonder if McCarthy and House Republicans are laying the groundwork to impeach Joe Biden.
It would certainly be warranted.
