House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) on Tuesday threatened to withhold the salaries of White House officials who enforce nondisclosure agreements that lack protections for federal whistleblowers.

The move is the latest effort by Cummings to demand documents from a defiant Trump administration by invoking the congressional power of the purse and threatening officials’ pay.

The article goes on to state the following:

Cummings sent a letter to acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney renewing a request for documents regarding nondisclosure agreements for White House staff to determine whether they include language verifying protections for whistleblowers providing information to Congress about potential wrongdoing.

“Gag orders without this required language could chill employees from reporting violations of law, waste, fraud, and abuse. As a result, the salaries of officials who enforce such illegal nondisclosure agreements may be withheld, according to federal law,” Cummings wrote.

    Cummins is nothing but an Ass literally. Can’t stand him and his wreakless temper tantrums he throws during hearings. Nothing but a dishonest spoiled child most times. Jerk! Do something useful for a change.

    I have about lost all faith in our branches of government! I am sickened by all the hate and power and greed that goes with it. Somewhere along the line, it stopped being “for the people”. Now these people we elected have become so elite, they have voted in their own private health plans and life long pensions and for doing nothing that didn’t put more money in their pocket. The politicians get rich, the people get poorer. They can’t even enforce the laws that are already laws! Our government is too big and too broken.
