GOP investigates Pres. Joe Biden; Nancy Pelosi steps aside from Dem leadership

Political shake-up on Capitol Hill begins

The political winds have shifted in Washington D.C. following the Midterm elections.

On Thursday, Republican Reps. Jim Jordan and James Comer leveled allegations during a press conference that U.S. President Joe Biden was actively involved in overseas business dealings alongside his son Hunter Biden.

Jordan is expected to chair the Judiciary Committee soon.

Comer, the incoming chair of the House Oversight Committee said they are releasing a report that details what they’ve uncovered and sending letters to the Biden administration officials, Biden family associates renewing their request for voluntary production of documents relevant to this investigation.

“This is an investigation of Joe Biden the President United States and why he lied to the American people about his knowledge and participation in his family’s international business schemes,” Comer said.

Comer told reporters that Committee Republicans have uncovered evidence of federal crimes committed by and to the benefit of members of the president’s family.

“These include: conspiracy or defrauding the United States, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, violation of the foreign agents registration act, violations of the foreign corrupt practices act, violations of the trafficking victims protection act, tax evasion, money laundering, and conspiracy to commit money laundering,” Comer said.

“The Biden family’s business dealings implicate a wide range of criminality from human trafficking to potential violations of the constitution,” Comer continued.

“In the 118th Congress, this committee will evaluate the status of Joe Biden’s relationship with his family’s foreign partners and whether he is a president who is compromised or swayed by foreign dollars and influence.”

The representatives alleged that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden participated in “waste, fraud, and abuse” in international business dealings–and promised to oversee investigations.

Also on Capitol Hill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she will step down as House Democratic leader.

The move comes after Democrats lost control of the House to Republicans and ends her history-making tenure as the first woman to serve as speaker.

It also opens the door for a generational change in Pelosi’s party’s congressional leadership.

Human error sends the New York Stock Exchange tumbling

We’ve all made mistakes at the office from time to time, but spare a thought for one worker who may have single-handedly brought down the New York Stock Exchange with just one tiny error.

The mistake of one employee has wiped billions of dollars off the charts for some of the globe’s largest companies.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

Bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill as politicians say the Biden administration is stonewalling their quest for answers

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
