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 KushnerTrump officials mull plan to divert billions more to border wall: report California trip shows Trump doesn't always hate the media Trump's 'soldier of fortune' foreign policy MORE's ethics law compliance, the Trump administration's family separation policy, President TrumpDonald John TrumpJulián Castro: It's time for House Democrats to 'do something' about Trump Warren: Congress is 'complicit' with Trump 'by failing to act' Sanders to join teachers, auto workers striking in Midwest MORE's tax returns, the firing of former FBI Director James ComeyJames Brien ComeyNadler's House committee holds a faux hearing in search of a false crime We've lost sight of the real scandal Former Obama officials willing to testify on McCabe's behalf: report 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.
