  • In a blistering oversight letter, 16 prominent House Republicans are accusing the Homeland Security Department of using a private group to “silence narratives” during elections and directly challenging the honesty of Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas concerning allegations he made against border patrol agents.
  • The letter sent Wednesday night to Mayorkas was organized by Rep. James Comer, the likely chairman of the House Oversight Committee if the GOP wins control of Congress in next week’s midterms. It includes signatures from many other top Republicans on oversight committees, including  Reps. Jim Jordan of House Judiciary and Virginia Foxx, the ranking Republican on the House Education and Labor Committee.
