The GOP Ran on Gas and Grocery Prices. Their Top Priority After Taking the House? Hunter Biden’s Laptop.

For months it seemed all Americans heard from GOP members of Congress was how expensive it was for Republicans to fill up their tanks and grocery carts.

Florida Congressman Greg Steube complained about paying “$167 to fill up my truck today.”

(Some alleged he had a Ford F450, with a 48 gallon tank – the photo shows 43 gallons.)

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who ended up voting against every bill Democrats put forth to combat these issues often complained about gas,

Rep. Jim Comer (R-KY) complained about inflation.

In August he complained about the price of gas and groceries.

Today, Rep. Comer announced now that House Republicans are in the majority they will focus their time on investigating Hunter Biden and his laptop.

On Thursday, as rumors spread about Speaker Pelosi possibly stepping down from House Democratic leadership. Rep. Comer and his fellow Republicans were trying to get reporters interested in their plans to investigate Hunter Biden, who is not a government official.

CNN makes it clear.

“After clinching the majority in the House of Representatives in the midterm elections, top Republicans on Thursday outlined a broad range of investigative targets focused on President Joe Biden and his family’s business dealings,” CNN reported Thursday afternoon.

“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,” Rep. James Comer, the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee, told reporters, claiming, “This is an investigation of Joe Biden, and that’s where the committee will focus in this next Congress.”

But Comer’s own words make his claim that they’re focus on President Biden questionable.

“If we could keep it about Hunter Biden, this is kind of a big deal,” he interjected at a GOP press conference when a reporter asked him about the January 6 insurrection and the attack on the Capitol. He gestured in frustration, looked at his colleagues, and told the reporter to talk to Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

“We’re focused on a lot of investigations now, I’ve been very transparent with the media on it,” he said. “That wasn’t one of them.”
