The resolute refusal of South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, the House Oversight Committee chairman, to do his job and pursue misconduct by Donald Trump has infuriated House Democrats at every turn.
And none more so than Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the committee’s ranking member. We are the committee that handle more whistleblowers than any committee, and the whistleblowers come under our jurisdiction and making sure that they are protected. “
And as Cummings points out, when Gowdy seriously wants to investigate something, like the Obama administration’s handling of the Benghazi attack, he is too good at it.
The House Oversight Committee has been a partisan kangaroo court for far too long. Gowdy’s conduct completely undermines the credibility and usefulness of an essential congressional body.
