RED WAVE (OF LITIGATION) -  After four years of Democrat-led investigations, you might be tempted to assume House Republicans will now look to pump the brakes on government oversight. But in today’s political atmosphere, turnabout is fair play, which is why many D.C. lawyers are intrigued, and even bracing for a new wave of litigation, as the GOP assumes control of the House. Matt Herrington, investigations partner at Paul Hastings, told Law.com’s Brad Kutner that “conventional wisdom” around Democrats being better at, or more organized for, investigations than Republicans may be tested this term. He suggested the House GOP has spent their time in the minority beefing up their committees with “highly sophisticated and highly skilled” staff in anticipation of their new authority. Where Democrats trained the focus of high-profile hearings on ex-President Donald Trump, and the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, Republicans are seen as likely to use their newly won power to launch probes into President Joe Biden, federal agencies and big business allies who have fallen out of the GOP’s favor.
