New York Dem shutting down terrorism committee to create Trump investigation panel
Fox News ^ | January 11, 2019 | Brooke Singman

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel is planning to dissolve the panel’s 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 we’re 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. “We’re barely a week into the Democrat majority and already we’re 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.

This 2012 clip from CNN may be the high point in the career of Joe DiGenova (former Federal prosecutor) and the low point in the career of Rep. Eliot Engel (D-Israel):

Let him - they’re batchit crazy and the more time they waste investigating Trump is less time they’ll spend harming the country.

They’re 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
