House Republicans are beginning to lay the groundwork for their first investigations into the Biden administration, starting with a review of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan last year. 

Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee, sent letters to a number of government agencies requesting documentation and other materials related to the troop withdrawal, accusing the Biden administration of committing obstruction.

“It has been over a year since the Biden Administration’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal and the American people have not received any answers about this national security and humanitarian catastrophe. U.S. servicemen and women lost their lives, thousands of Americans were abandoned, billions of taxpayer dollars are still unaccounted for, military equipment fell into the hands of the Taliban, progress for Afghan women has stalled, and the entire region is under hostile Taliban control.

Senate and House negotiators have reportedly agreed to authorize $847 billion for the annual defense bill, a $45 billion increase from the Biden administration’s initial ask. The current defense funding expires later this month. Read Full Story

House Republicans are weighing an effort to tie next year’s funding for the Pentagon to a number of demands, as conservatives push their GOP colleagues to punt a vote on the final version of the National Defense Authorization Act to January when the GOP will control the lower chamber.

In a letter last month, members of the House Freedom Caucus urged lawmakers to end “the contamination of our military by radical Leftist ‘woke’ ideologies and the prioritization of politics over combat readiness,” end defense funding for “pet climate projects,” and appoint a special inspector general to oversee the U.S. support for Ukraine… Read Full Story
