The majority of analysts in the world of politics believe that Republicans are going to win back control of the House of Representatives in 2022, and some believe that they will use the opportunity to get revenge on Democrats for what they have done when they had the House.
Florida Rep. Kat Cammack said, in an exclusive interview, that some Democrats could be headed to prison, Breitbart News reported.
“When we take the House back in the 118th, first and foremost, we are going to be focused on accountability, people need to go to jail,” she said at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest in Phoenix, Arizona.
“I’m talking about the Hillary Clintons of the world, I’m talking about the Eric Holders, I’m talking about all these people who have continued to cause strife and division, break the law, subvert the Rule of Law, and they have never been held accountable,” the congresswoman said.
“We’re going to go after the origins of COVID-19, we’re going to be looking at how we can earn the trust of the American people back,” she said. “Because for so long, there has been two standards: one for thee, and then rules for the other people that don’t have power, that aren’t well-connected.”
She said she wants the new Congress to investigate election integrity and other issues including “all of the issues we’ve had in years past that have gone unresolved, like Benghazi.”
“With Afghanistan now, that’s going to be another one,” she said.
She said that the plan is for Republicans to have an agenda that “that every single Republican will be running on, campaigning on, and committing to putting that agenda forward.”
“And once we take the House, we roll hard on executing that plan, because the American people they deserve accountability, and they deserve action,” she said. “And those are the two things that we’re going to be giving when we take over the House.”
House Minority Leader and California Rep. Kevin McCarthy also said in December that there would be payback for Democrats if Republicans get control of the House again in the 2022 midterms, as Newsmax reported.
…[McCarthy] is not only preparing to turn the tables on the majority in the 2022 midterm elections, but he is also beefing up efforts for subsequent retribution for Democrats hunting down the Trump administration officials in investigations.
He is planning “preservation notices” for President Joe Biden’s Cabinet, which instructs them to save communications and documents for future oversight in Congress.
“The investigations will not be able to be carried out in a Democrat-led Congress, but in the event Republicans take over, McCarthy’s preservation notices to the Biden administration might prove fruitful to spur probes of Democrats like they have conducted of the Trump administration, including the Mueller Report, Ukraine, COVID-19, and Jan. 6,” Newsmax added, citing a report in Axios.
The political news outlet added a shortlist of possible areas where Republicans would focus:
- Origins of COVID-19.
- Leak of IRS data about billionaires.
- Alleged National Security Agency spying on Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
- Attorney General Merrick Garland’s memo mobilizing the FBI and Justice Department attorneys to look into investigating and prosecuting local school board protests.
- Mass illegal immigration.
- Communications with teachers unions on COVID-19 lockdowns and mask mandates.
- Cloud-computing contract known as J.E.D.I.
Axios noted that as a “prelude” to possible future actions, House Republicans sent Biden a request in August to “preserve all records related to your Administration’s withdrawal … from Afghanistan.”
“McCarthy plans to beef up staff, counsel and other resources to be ready to extract information beginning Day 1 if the GOP gets the gavel,” Axios continued.
Axios claimed that the GOP probes would be an attempt to deflect from the Jan. 6 committee’s investigation, “a real-time probe of real violence, death and looting in the Capitol.” But the only death resulting from direct action was the shooting of pro-Trump protester Ashli Babbitt, who was unarmed. A Capitol Police officer, Brian Sicknick, was initially — and incorrectly — reported to have died from a blow to the head from a Trump supporter wielding a fire extinguisher. In fact, he died a few days later from a stroke.
