A new 118th Congressional subcommittee, led by Republican Chairman Jim Jordan of Ohio, will focus on the actions of the FBI, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Centers for Disease Control, and other agencies.
It will also investigate matters related to the collection, analysis, dissemination, and use of information on U.S. citizens by executive branch agencies, including whether such efforts are illegal, unconstitutional, or otherwise unethical.
The subcommittee will have the power to issue subpoenas to officials within federal agencies and conduct in-depth hearings.
“This committee will examine why there seems to be a double standard for enforcing rules against some of us, but not against others,” Harriet Hageman, the elected replacement of RINO Liz Cheney in Wyoming, said. “It will work to ensure that draconian lockdowns are never again enacted.”
All nine Republicans on the committee have been named, while the six Democrats have not been determined yet by the Speaker of the House Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., in consultation with Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.)
The Freedom Index and Constitutional Scores for these selected committee members are an important determination on how effective they may be.
This Freedom Index is nonpartisan and it is not meant to promote any candidate or political party. Bills are selected for their constitutional implications and cost to the taxpayers.
I generally consider any Republican with a score under 65, as a good indicator of being a Republican In Name Only (RINO). I also pay attention to what state they represent as they should be following the will of their constituents.
The latest index scores based on their 2022 voting record (on those who were in Congress) are:
🔹Chairman Jim Jordan, Ohio, 83
🔹Thomas Massey, KY, 99
🔹Chip Roy, TX, 94
🔹Dan Bishop, NC, 93
🔹Kat Cammack, FL, 90
🔹Mike Johnson, LA, 72
🔹Chris Stewart, UT, 62
🔹Darrell Issa, CA, 55
🔹Elise Stefanik, NY, 46
Greg Steuble, FL and Hageman do not have scores as of this date (January 2023).
“Congress hasn’t kept pace with the federal government’s potential to abuse new technology, and we need to better understand how U.S. intelligence agencies work with each other and with the private sector to collect information on Americans or to undermine their fundamental constitutional rights,” Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s (R-LA) summary of the committee says.
The formation of the panel was one of the first acts of the new Republican-led Congress.
McCarthy also named members of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic on Tuesday, among them Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a member of the Freedom Caucus.
