Buttigieg Is Reportedly Keen to Participate in GOP Investigations. Here's Why.

Republicans are preparing to take the gavel in a few short weeks and have already been clear about the investigations they plan to launch. The biggest among them concern the southern border, the Afghanistan withdrawal, Hunter Biden’s laptop, and the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic. But that’s not all. 

“We will leave no stone unturned in order to deliver the accountability the American people deserve,” vowed Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said. “[W]ith gavels and subpoena authority in the upcoming Congress, we will use interviews, subpoenas, depositions, and hearings to expose the truth.”

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, for his part, is ready and more than willing to cooperate. 

“I'm absolutely ready to take our case to the Hill,” he told reporters.

According to Axios, his eagerness reflects his desire to raise his public profile. 

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has a simple message for Republican investigators lining up to grill him on climate change and electric vehicles: Bring it on.

Why it matters: The anticipated GOP hearings next year will give the former South Bend mayor the very thing he needs — attention — to raise his profile in a crowded Democratic field in 2024 if President Biden decides not to run.

Buttigieg is the rare Democrat who not only agrees to appear on conservative media like Fox News, but actually appears to enjoy it. The hearings will give him another platform he's eager to use.

Buttigieg will be ready to show up "where there is a contest over what’s the right thing to do, where people object to our efforts to reduce the impact of transportation on the climate, or where people have a problem with us trying to make sure that this round of infrastructure investment is equitable."
