U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) has been appointed to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, which recently announced an investigation into President Joe Biden's mishandling of classified documents.
The Judiciary Committee recently gained republican leadership after U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) appointed U.S. Rep Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) as chairman. Moore is one of many GOP appointees to the Committee after Republicans gained control of the House in January.
"It is a great and humbling honor to be appointed to serve on the prestigious House Judiciary Committee and serve alongside my friend and our chairman, Jim Jordan, to defend our foundational American freedoms," Moore said. "The Judiciary Committee will be the tip of the spear this Congress fighting to ensure that the American people's government works to protect their civil liberties, not undermine them to advance a political agenda. With President Biden in the White House, we have a big task ahead, but I'm ready to get to work."
Under new leadership, the Committee has wasted no time going after the Biden administration's recent mishandling of classified documents.
On Tuesday, Jordan sent letters to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, White House chief of staff Ron Klain, ATF Director Steven Dettelbach and others, claiming a continued "stonewalling" with document requests.
The letters requested a number of documents, including communications between the DOJ, ATF, FBI and Biden's office.
