10. Yes. Their investigations have two purposes


The first is to assist them in the development of legislation. The second - the oversight power - is, as you note, for the public good. If during the course of those investigations, they find wrongdoing, they refer the matter to the Justice Department for investigation and prosecution. But DOJ conducts its own investigations and most of their investigations are initiated and conducted completely independently of any congressional investigation.
