LIBERAL PRIORITIES: Dem Chair to Abolish Terrorism Subcommittee to Focus on ‘Trump Scandals’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.11.19

The new Democratic Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee plans to abolish a counter-terrorism subcommittee in the coming weeks; using the resources to create a new panel to probe President Trump’s “foreign policy scandals.”

“Eliot Engel, the Democratic congressman from New York who has just taken over the chairmanship of the House Foreign Affairs Committee […] told me that his first act as chairman will be to create a new subcommittee devoted to investigating President Trump,” writes the New Yorker.

“After the 9/11 attacks, Engel’s predecessors on Foreign Affairs set up a new terrorism subcommittee […] It is telling that this is the subcommittee that Engel will now eliminate in favor of his new investigative panel,” adds the author.
