Gotta ask here. When Biden wins in November and takes office in Jan, (and we win House and senate)

Can anything be done about the way the stimulus money was handed out? It's been a total disaster. At least we could hold hearings to figure who got what!

1. Unlikely. There were a lot of holes in the emergency legislation

There was little to no oversight or penalties put in to prevent abuse.

3. Absolutely they could do hearings... or prosecute, if needed.

The problem is that there will be limited bandwidth. Do you spend your day in Congress passing new legislation or do you spend your day investigating the last administration?

Perhaps stimulus money issues would better be handled by the DOJ.

4. Definitely. I think legislative focus should be on making sure a Trump can't happen again

7. Passing a Law that nullifies the "Presidents cannot be indicted while in Office" DOJ...

... unjust "memo" is mandatory in the first 100 days!

6. They can hold hearings, and demand records

Since Biden will be in charge of the executive branch, he can order the release of records related to the PPP slush fund and other corrupt abuses of COVID funds.

Unless they were dropping palettes of cash at undisclosed locations, itís all traceable.

This is important to reveal the corruption of all of Trumpís enablers, but tribunals for the kids in cages criminals must come first.
