  • Republicans probe John Kerry’s ties to eco groups, efforts to ‘shield’ from oversight.
  • Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., the top GOP member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, penned a letter Tuesday to Kerry, requesting information about his office and communications with outside parties. Comer’s letter cited multiple Fox News Digital reports showing that Kerry’s office has been tight-lipped about internal operations and has coordinated with far-left environmental groups on policy.

  • In the letter — which was joined by Oversight Subcommittee on Environment Ranking Member Yvette Herrell, R-N.M. — Comer noted that Kerry’s office has failed to respond to previous requests for information. Comer and House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, demanded information from Kerry in June 2021, but never received a response.
