Axios: GOP circulating spreadsheet ahead of midterms listing potential Dem probes

Republicans on Capitol Hill are circulating a spreadsheet ahead of the November midterms listing investigations Democrats are considering launching if they take back the House, according to a new Axios report

The document reportedly lists investigations Democrats have already called for but have been unable to move forward with due to Republican opposition.

The list includes probes into White House senior adviser Jared KushnerJared Corey KushnerWhite House encouraging investment in Middle East as part of peace plan Bank staff highlighted 'suspicious activity' in Trump-, Kushner-controlled accounts: report Trump: 'Good chance' Dems give immigration 'win' after Pelosi called White House plan 'dead on arrival' MORE's ethics law compliance, the Trump administration's family separation policy, President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump: 'I will not let Iran have nuclear weapons' Rocket attack hits Baghdad's Green Zone amid escalating tensions: reports Buttigieg on Trump tweets: 'I don't care' MORE's tax returns, the firing of former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyClash with Trump marks latest break with GOP leaders for Justin Amash Giuliani says Trump is 'doing the right thing' by resisting congressional subpoenas Giuliani strikes back at Comey: 'No one really respects him' MORE and more, according to Axios.

Democrats have a shot at taking back the House in November, and polling analysis website FiveThirtyEight predicts there is a 72 percent chance the "blue wave" will come to fruition. 

The spreadsheet might indicate Republicans are seriously anticipating what a Democratic majority will mean for the future of the House, Axios reported. The sheet reportedly originated in a senior House Republican office. 

It lists over 100 possible investigations, according to Axios. 

Lawyers with proximity to the White House told Axios they do not believe the Trump administration is prepared for the legal battles it would have to confront from House Democrats. 

Republican lawmakers have sought to downplay Democrats' chances of taking the House in the upcoming elections, claiming reports of a "blue wave" are overblown.
