GOP senators hit the gas on Obama-era probes

by JORDAIN CARNEY - The Hill  |  Published on May 14, 2020

Senate Republicans are ramping up their investigations into the Obama era as President Trump readies himself for a battle this fall against the former administration’s vice president, Joe Biden.

Fueled by watchdog reports on a shadowy surveillance court and the Justice Department’s decision to drop its case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn, Republicans are targeting Obama officials for further scrutiny and questioning.

Key GOP senators are using their committee gavels to dig into some of the biggest concerns of Trump and his allies, including Biden’s work for Busima Holdings, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court and the handling of the investigation into Russia’s 2016 election meddling.

The controversial probes have drawn fierce backlash from Democrats, who believe Republicans are either giving credence to conspiracy theories, unintentionally spreading Russian information or trying to interfere in the 2020 election. But after being thrown into limbo amid a protracted recess sparked by the coronavirus, Republicans say they are ready to hit the gas.
