No, that is not the GOP way. Their way is to determine who the Dem frontrunner is and to focus on them, not simply use a scattershot approach. They did this to Bill Clinton back in the 90's as he approached his 2nd term. They held "hearings" and "investigations" all focused on Bill Clinton. They appointed a 'special' prosecutor to dig up dirt on the Clintons in the land investment scandal known as Whitewater. And that special prosecutor came up with NOTHING after spending $50 million of taxpayers' money - until someone decided to drop a stained dress in his lap. And that became the "big scandal" of the Clinton years. A willing intern gave the president a BJ in the WH. Oh, clutch your pearls!If they take the Congress they will probably drop all investigations that could indite and send any Republican or Trump supporter to jail and start up a bunch of new investigations into any and all Dems they think even spit on the side walk and try to send them to jail.
They are not interested in finding out the truth they are all for promoting the Party at any cost Screw the American people and the Country the Republican Party comes first
Have a nice day
Then they went after Al Gore, the frontrunner for the Dems in 2000 and defeated him handly. Then they focused on John Kerry, a Vietnam vet, whom they trashed with outrageous lies about his military service, including his purple hearts. To hear the GOP tell it, Kerry was fighting on the side of the Viet Cong.
Then of course, Hillary was the frontrunner during the primaries of 2008, so she had to be stopped by telling big lies like she led a pedophile ring, she was a lesbian, and she ordered people murdered. Then a funny thing happened. A BLACK MAN FROM KENYA was trying to be president. Change the FOCUS, QUICK!
Then there was Hillary again in 2016. So, let's whadda got? Oh yeah, BENGHAZIIIIII!!!!!! What was it? She personally grabbed the phone and ordered the U.S. Marines to stand down as our diplomatic staff was being slaughtered. Remember that? Oh, and then there was HER SERVER! She was selling government secrets out of the basement? Or was it the trunk of her car? Let's have some hearings. Yeah, that's the ticket! Hearings! Let's put her under oath right in the middle of her campaign and see if she sweats! The GOP even admitted they had no intention of seeking prosecution (based on nothing BTW), they simply wanted to hurt Hillary politically. Mission accomplished!
Then in 2020, Trump tried to strong arm an ally country to "announce" an investigation into Joe Biden (the frontrunner). When that didn't work, he ordered the AG to order all US AGs across the country to "investigate" any "credible" allegations against anyone named Biden. When that didn't pan out, he appointed a "special prosecutor" to investigate anyone named Biden and return indictments before the election. That too, fell flat.
So, don't worry. The GOP will not waste its political capital on nothing. They will launch "investigations" into whatever happens to be the 'scandal' of the day, provided it is focused on whomever is perceived to be the frontrunner for the Dems at the moment. Wannabes and pretenders need not apply.
