Republicans in Congress are reportedly bracing themselves for a “coming hell” if Democrats gain control of House after the midterm elections.
A spreadsheet that has allegedly been “circulated through Republican circles on and off Capitol Hill” has been obtained by Axios and purports to show investigations Congressional Republicans believe Democrats will launch if they flip the House in November.
“Publicly, House Republicans are putting on a brave face about the midterms,” the site reported. “But privately, they are scrambling to prepare for the worst. This document, which catalogs requests Democrats have already made, is part of that effort.”
The probes predicted include everything from President Donald Trump’s polices like the travel ban and immigration policy to security issues and even the alleged hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels.
Axios provided more of the proposed investigations.
“Axios has obtained a spreadsheet that’s circulated through Republican circles on and off Capitol Hill—including at least one leadership office — that meticulously previews the investigations Democrats will likely launch if they flip the House.”

There are reportedly more than 100 formal requests from House Democrats spanning nearly every committee listed on the spreadsheet which originated in a senior House Republican office, according to Axios:
The spreadsheet includes requests for administration officials to be grilled by committee staff, requests for hearings to obtain sworn testimony, efforts to seize communications about controversial policies and personnel decisions, and subpoena threats.
These demands would turn the Trump White House into a 24/7 legal defense operation.
The GOP has managed to block most of the Democrats’ requests but will lose “its power to stymie” if Republicans lose control of the House, setting up an “investigatory onslaught” that would be “among the greatest threats” to Trump’s presidency.
