We are to the point where we’re going to have investigators to investigate the investigators investigating the investigators. It is also a terrible thing, but it is necessary and right. Republicans have spent the last year campaigning on the promise to investigate the January 6th investigation and all investigations into the GOP, just as they investigated the FBI’s investigation into Russia. Democrats want a war room that can respond to any abuses of oversight. It is both a good idea as well as necessary.
“The newly relaunched Congressional Integrity Project initiative, details of which were shared first with POLITICO, will include rapid response teams, investigative researchers, pollsters and eventually a paid media campaign to put congressional Republicans ‘squarely on the defense,’ founder Kyle Herrig said in an interview.
“It’s designed to serve as the party’s ‘leading war room’ to push back on House Republican investigations, Herrig said in an interview.”
Speed does seem to be the key in today’s polarized 24-hour news cycle. It is possible to end a story quickly or turn it around. It is encouraging to see that Democrats are not content to be a punching bag for the next two years, as they were during Benghazi.
