WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, House Judiciary Committee Republicans sent letters to White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, Attorney General Merrick Garland, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona naming potential witnesses to take part in transcribed interviews and hearings early in the 118th Congress.

Committee Republicans have continued to raise concerns about the allegations of bias and politicization within the FBI and DOJ, including releasing a report, “FBI Whistleblowers: What Their Disclosures Indicate About the Politicization of the FBI And Justice Department,” to detail a rampant culture of unaccountability, manipulation, and abuse at the highest level of the DOJ. Committee Republicans have also demanded answers from the Biden Administration on the unprecedented national security and humanitarian crisis of the Administration’s own making at the southern border.

Key excerpt of the letter to Klain:

“In addition, to advance our oversight of the Biden Administration’s use of federal law enforcement with respect to school board-related threats, we require prompt testimony from employees of the Executive Office of the President (EOP). We expect your unfettered cooperation in arranging for the Committee to receive testimony from EOP employees. As an initial matter, we anticipate requiring testimony, in hearings or transcribed interviews, from the following employees early in the 118th Congress:

  1.  Mary C. Wall, Senior Advisor, COVID-19 Response Team;
  2. Julie C. Rodriguez, Director of the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs;
  3. Katherine Pantangco, Policy Advisor for Intergovernmental Affairs; and
  4. Nezly Silva, Senior Policy Analyst for Intergovernmental Affairs.”
