Donald Trump is already miserable and becoming even more unhinged now that the Democrats are dominating the House — but the president’s troubles are just beginning. It’s now being reported that House Democrats will be burying Trump and his Cabinet secretaries in subpoenas soon. One top committee chairman even admitted, “it could be brutal.”
These subpoenas are meant to help the many investigations into Trump, his administration, business, and campaign. By issuing an avalanche of subpoenas, Democrats hope that they’ll be able to get facts that Trump and the GOP have been trying to hide. Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY), chairman of the House Budget Committee, hinted that this process would be terrible for Trump:
I joked for a while — but it’s not funny anymore — I said we’re going to have to build an air traffic control tower to keep track of all the subpoenas flying from here to the White House. So yeah, it could be brutal.”
Americans will likely stand behind this initiative — even conservative ones. The Democrats wish to investigate “gross abuses from agency heads,” which include all the passes that Republicans have given Trump and his administration for their unethical behavior. Regardless of party affiliation, this initiative is necessary to protect America and hold the Trump administration accountable. House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said:
Over the last two years President Trump set the tone from the top in his administration that behaving ethically and complying with the law is optional. We’re better than that.”
Some of the many things Democrats will be delving into are Trump’s tariff policies, his disgusting “zero tolerance” border separation policy, his tax returns, money laundering, his environmental and other regulations, moves to undermine the Affordable Care Act, and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
Needless to say, this is probably the worst way for Donald Trump to begin 2019, but it’s finally time that Democrats were allowed to stand up for America and hold the president to some sort of standard.
