What we're seeing is the US branch of Republican Donor Club is done waiting.

That's what you're seeing now.
They're tired of the GOP House members looking like fools, because that will affect 2024.
They want the "critical items" - like in blowing up the Federal bureaucracy and oversight and privatizing federal programs for profit - on their agenda started now before the US public starts wondering about the maturity and leadership of their chosen Trojan Horse political organization.
As for investigations, they don't care.

They're not getting the bang for their investment buck as soon as they want. And they're getting bored.

He won't stand up for principles against lobbyists and donors, but he will punish people "below him" if that will get the job he's tasked with done. He will work with the Democrats if Wall Street or the DC Swamp realizes they need saving when they tank the economy.
And, of course, he's Peter-Pricipled himself into a seniority role.
He's a perfect "Rent-a-political-GM". Unlike most of his fellow senior Representatives.
They can't trust most political true-believers of any ilk - like Liz Cheney or Jim Banks - to be as flexible as Kevin McCarthy.

The shit show that will be the house is a great distraction for the unwashed masses as the billionaires continue heading for the bank.

They let their puppets have a bit of fun for a few days, but reached their limit today.
