Republicans in Washington are training their sights on accountability ahead of the 2022 midterms.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart, U.S. Rep. Kat Cammack, a Florida Republican, said the GOP will be “focused on accountability” as soon as they take back control of Congress’ lower chamber — and they won’t shy away from investigating big names like Hillary Clinton.
“When we take the House back in the 118th, first and foremost, we are going to be focused on accountability, people need to go to jail,” Cammack said during her interview with Breitbart.
“I’m talking about the Hillary Clintons of the world, I’m talking about the Eric Holders, I’m talking about all these people who have continued to cause strife and division, break the law, subvert the Rule of Law, and they have never been held accountable,” she added.
Earning back Americans’ trust
Cammack, like other Republicans, has said that the origins of COVID-19 will be another area of focus for congressional investigators, should the GOP claim control of the House in November. Another will be the fiasco that was the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan last fall.
Questions of election integrity are also reportedly on the list.
According to the congresswoman, it all has to do with “how we can earn the trust of the American people back.”
“Because for so long, there [have] been two standards: one for thee, and then rules for the other people that don’t have power, that aren’t well-connected,” Cammack said, according to Breitbart.
Clinton, for her part, would certainly be paradigmatic of that double standard. Even mainstream outlets couldn’t avoid reporting on what CBS News called the “secrecy and sophistication” that surrounded her use of a private email server while heading up the U.S. State Department.
“We roll hard”
Speaking with Breitbart, Cammack also vowed that the GOP will unveil an agenda this year “that every single Republican will be running on, campaigning on, and committing to putting that agenda forward.”
“And once we take the House, we roll hard on executing that plan, because the American people, they deserve accountability, and they deserve action,” she said. “And those are the two things that we’re going to be giving when we take over the House.”
As things stand, reports suggest the GOP is poised to fare well in the 2022 midterms, the first election since the latest nationwide redistricting effort. Only time will tell, however, if Republicans can seize the opportunity, or if they’ll squander their chance.
