Powerful new Democratic chairman vows to pursue cabinet officials who 'abused' their posts and investigate Trump for acting 'in his own financial self-interest'
Rep. Elijah Cummings is in line to chair the House Oversight Committee
He was one of a number of Democrats empowered by the party takeover He has pursued Trump's ownership of a DC hotel but without power Now he wants to probe cabinet officials 'across the government' Vowed to combat 'waste, fraud and abuse' Called for both sides to accept 'mandate'
A newly-empowered House Democratic committee chairman vowed on Wednesday to probe efforts by President Donald Trump for using his post to pursue what he called his own 'financial self-interest.'
Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland issued the warning shot at Trump and his administration Wednesday hours after Democrats sealed their takeover.
Cummings has hounded the Trump administration on issues ranging from cabinet scandals for jet use to Trump's ownership of a luxury D.C. hotel, but with little ability to force disclosure without cooperation from Republicans.
Now, blasting oversight he called 'nonexistent', he is vowing to go ahead and probe Trump's decisions to act in his own 'self-interest.'

The overplaying their hand begins.
All to make it so no one wants to work for Trump because you will get a proctological exam. Like Judge K.
“Those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
Game on. Crush them.
I suspect that Trump is about to play hardball. They will rue the day.
Let the Dems subpoena all they want. We also learned what happens when contempt of congress charges are brought. Nothing. See-Eric Holder.
Any referrals to DOJ will now finally be pursued by Sessions.
Are these Dem’s assuming that Pelosi will be the Speaker?
Bill Clinton started the Amoral Democrat movement in this Republic. Can’t think of one Democrat that isn’t part of that movement. They can pin point the sins of all Republicans but cannot see any of their own.
This is going to be entertaining to watch.
The Trump trolling will be merciless.
Yep, they will help the GOP in 2020.
“All to make it so no one wants to work for Trump because you will get a proctological exam. Like Judge K.”
Do what the rats did. Ignore it.
Like Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton?
Those cabinet members?
Elijah, get used to the words, executive privelage.
The faces of the House ...
Where are they hiding their stars like Hank Johnson?
Anyone being questioned by Cummings should refuse to answer and demand Cummings recuse himself because of past misdeeds....force the issue...
wait, you mean this guy?
Didn’t even take 24 hours. They just cannot help but destroy themselves by letting their crazies run the asylum.
