House GOP May Investigate Bush

The Republican takeover of the House of Representatives may not just be bad news for President Barack Obama. The attention-grabbing next chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, California Rep. Darrell Issa, said Wednesday that he will investigate George W. Bush. "I'm going to be investigating a president of my own party, because many of the issues we're working on began [with] President Bush or even before, and haven't been solved," Issa said. In particular, the GOP will look at what happened at the former Mineral Management Service under Dubya, after reports of corruption. Investigation of mortgage giants Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae will also bring the 43rd president back into the spotlight. Bush is in the news once again with a memoir slated for release next week.
