House Republicans are plotting a flurry of probes into the Biden administration’s pandemic response and the health industry if the party retakes control of the chamber next week.
Key party leaders have already drummed up lists of their oversight priorities amid growing confidence they’ll win control of the House in the midterm elections. This includes investigating the origins of covid-19, cracking down on prescription drug middlemen, examining how pandemic relief dollars have been spent and scrutinizing key federal agencies.  
Both Democrats and Republicans have already launched their own probes into the coronavirus over the last few years, seeking to shape the public narrative over the federal response. But the majority party can issue subpoenas to compel testimony and obtain documents — a power House Republicans deeply skeptical of some of the nation’s scientists and Biden’s covid response haven’t had for the duration of the pandemic. 
The effort would likely spark a round of political showdowns, leading to fraught congressional hearings and partisan bickering.
