A dedicated team of White House lawyers, strategists, and Capitol Hill veterans is working tirelessly in a suite of rooms deep inside the Eisenhower Executive Office Building to respond to a barrage of oversight demands launched by House Republicans. This team is using the suite of rooms previously used by the Secretary of War and has transformed it into a formidable investigations ‘war room.’

Since President Biden took office, Republicans in Congress have been quick to accuse him and his administration of wrongdoing, but have had no real power to demand documents or compel testimony. That changed in January when the GOP took over the House majority and all the investigative powers that come with it. House Republicans are now launching investigations into a range of issues, including internet companies and the “weaponization of government” to the Afghanistan withdrawal and the business dealings of the president’s family, including his son Hunter.

The White House team has been responding to these requests, working on legitimate requests that they view as substantive, however choosing to not comply with requests they feel as though are not in “good faith.” The White House has expressed their opinion that many of the investigations launched by House Republicans are political stunts and are targeting issues that are not a priority for the American public. However, given the current state of the economy and the challenges faced by average Americans under President Biden, it’s fair to assume many are more interested in fixing the poor economy than they are in issues of Biden’s poor handling of situations.

Despite the political risks, the White House has remained steadfast and is letting President Biden stay above the fray, focusing on his administration’s accomplishments and goals. The White House team is determined to undercut the investigations by sharing clips that they feel show Republicans overreaching, and polls indicate that many Americans are skeptical of these investigations. The White House’s bet is that Republicans will take things too far and turn off voters, however, House Republicans are likely believing that exactly the opposite will be true, and these investigations will turn voters off to Biden and his political allies.

Outside groups have been amplifying the White House message, with organizations like the Congressional Integrity Project running ads in swing districts held by Republicans and flooding inboxes with talking points slamming Republican committee members. David Brock, a veteran of these sorts of partisan battles, leads another outside group called Facts First USA to defend Biden and deflect from his poor performance throughout his presidency.

The White House team includes seasoned lawyers who know how to handle investigations, and negotiations between the legal teams on opposite ends of Pennsylvania Avenue are ongoing. The goal is to differentiate between a serious demand for documents and more of a press release meant to generate attention. According to Eric Schultz, who was part of the team that the Obama White House put together to respond to investigations that became household names like Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and Solyndra, a robust response is necessary.

  1. If the procedures used by the Biden administration are without fault or any deception there is no reason why there cannot be a full disclosure and discussion of the events that led up to the activities and decisions the White House and its subordinate departments engaged in. In fact, they should welcome the opportunity to demonstrate their integrity in the acts and speech that they espoused.

    1. When they start saying again, “Ladies and Gentlemen” at online work, then I will return, but not until then! Florida is a common sense conservative state where most people have brains!

  2. Now the shoe is on the other foot. They are complaining that the investigations are a political stunt against Joe Biden. Gee, isn’t that what they did against Donald Trump, political stunts….
    My, my, how fast the political winds shift these days. It’s hypocrisy abounds everywhere….
    BOOM (mic drop) (drumroll, lights, AND action) Political Theatre at it’s best.

  3. I’m making over $13k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. For more details check this article..

  4. so is ol’ Kev a RINO today or a Donald sycophant today?
    and a quick follow up question: what will he be tomorrow?

  5. Investigating the Biden family is a waste of time and unnecessary. The Republicans should devote more time in bringing all together including Mitch every Republicans that have issues with Trump for a reconciliation put their differences aside. Mid term failure has to do with division within the party and if it continues they lose the presidential election. The senate should pass bills that will benefit both parties definitely will sway some voters and employ the tactics the Dems are using to win.
