The ongoing drama related to the FBI search and seizure that took place at the home of former President Donald Trump earlier this year seems to be full of plot twists.
According to Breitbart, two House Republican leaders wrote a letter addressed to Acting Archivist of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) Debra Steidel Wall, demanding to know more about the possibility of House Oversight Committee Democrats being the catalyst that sparked NARA into launching this debacle.
Clearly, if that theory could be proven -- and it most certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility -- it would open an entirely new chapter in the unfolding drama, one that would instantly have a number of top Democrats in the hotseat.
The letter was penned jointly by House Oversight and Reform Committee Ranking Member James Comer (R-KY) and House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-OH).

The two House Republicans wrote, in part, "The fact that NARA transmitted to DOJ a referral that launched a criminal investigation of the former president the same day the Democrat Chairwoman of the Committee inquired whether the agency had been in contact with DOJ raises serious concerns about whether NARA made the referral after pressure from Committee Democrats."
Comer had written on October 4 to Wall about Oversight Committee Democrats’ influence and potential coordination with NARA.
In December 2020, Oversight Committee Democrats pressured NARA to pursue Trump while he was in office despite NARA finding no issues. NARA had reportedly held at least one secret briefing with Democrats without committee Republicans. On October 7, NARA responded without providing the information that Comer requested.
The two congressmen might be onto something, and if they can prove even a shred of what they believe could be possible, it would be a game-changer and nothing less.
This could be the investigation that helps to end, once and for all, the weaponization of government entities to go after Biden's political opponents.
