House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel is planning to dissolve the panels terrorism subcommittee and instead create a panel to focus on investigating matters related to President Trump -- a move prompting criticism from Republicans.
Engel, a New York Democrat who just took over as committee chairman, first floated the idea in December, eyeing an investigative subcommittee to replace the terrorism panel that was launched after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. He has since confirmed the plans in an interview with The New Yorker.
We just thought, if were going to do something relevant in this era where Congress is going to reassert itself, where there are so many questionable activities of this Administration vis-à-vis foreign policy, that it made sense to have this, Engel told The New Yorker in a sit-down interview this week.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., also a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, blasted the proposal.
The government is shut down, our border remains vulnerable, and instead of negotiating, Democrats want to establish another committee to investigate President Trump, Meadows said in a statement to Fox News on Friday. Were barely a week into the Democrat majority and already were seeing a disturbing, myopic focus on targeting the President rather than solutions to help American families.

Why doesn’t he create a panel to investigate all of those unsolved murders that happen in Democrat run cities every year instead? There are plenty to investigate.
The Bolsheviks are on the move.
Let him - theyre batchit crazy and the more time they waste investigating Trump is less time theyll spend harming the country.
Theyre Democrats after all.
Who is going to be investigating Idiot Engel? Sounds like he trying to create a private nest egg for himself conducting phony witch hunts.
A swift kick in the. ..... Plus a big case of whoop ass will shut the weasel up. Fools like this really need a......
It may take a long time, but eventually unbiased history books WILL be written about this era, and people will be incredulous to learn about the internal coup attempt.
Enemy islamists and facilitators, all. Many RINOs too.
How ‘bout some well-heeled conservatives fund investigations of Idiot Engel and his public and private life?
A made to order example of why these people are mentally ill; and not fit to govern. Investigating Trump is more important than investigating terror attacks in the sick Democrat mind.
It’s going to be a very long two years.
Democrats doing their best to show they are incapable of governing as adults.
Too bad we don’t have an unbiased media to actually inform the public of their childish antics.
About 60 years ago a friend made the comment.
“Give some people a little power and they go haywire”
Seems to fit a lot these days.
It’s all about Priorities yaknow. The Dems have theirs and the American people have their own.. surviving the Dems.
This is the same jerk who wanted Guantanamo shut down, and have all the inmates sent to U.S. prisons, where they could spread their hate, and recruit even more terrorists. I worked in NY State prisons in uniform for 25 years. This was the last thing U.S. prisons, and the people working in them, and the public citizenry needed.
Hatred is a powerful drug.
OK terrorists New York is open for business
