House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan demanded answers from committee Chairman Elijah Cummings Tuesday over the secret meetings he held with other House committee leaders related to their sweeping Trump-focused investigations.

Jordan, R-Ohio, who first raised questions about a secret Memorandum of Understanding, or MOU, between Cummings, D-Md., and House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., last week, further pressed the committee’s top Democrat and suggested he violated House rules.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Your nonpublic MOU with Chairwoman Waters cites no specific authority allowing you to execute an MOU that could affect future investigatory actions you take as chairman on behalf of the Committee,” Jordan wrote Tuesday. “I ask again whether you could explain the authority that allows you to execute an MOU that affects potential Committee action without first obtaining approval of Committee Members.”

Jordan also outlined House rules, which authorize Cummings to “take specific, enumerated actions as chairman with respect to the Committee’s oversight and legislative business—convening hearings, initiating investigations, authorizing and issuing subpoenas, ordering depositions, and appointing task forces.”

Jordan first raised questions about the secret Cummings-Waters meeting last week. The Washington Examiner first reported that Jordan accused Democrats of coordinating in secret related to their investigations into the president while keeping Republicans in the dark. The Examiner also reported that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was part of the secret meeting.

    Evil loves darkness,where their deeds ,intentions and faces are hidden,just as Satan lurks in darkness…If humanity couls see him clearly,understand his intentions to lie,steal,murder morally.. most would choose to resist him and the world would be so very much better a place for all,but like Demonrats ,liberals and many of Gods detractors,Jesus haters ,rebels against Gods soveriegn transcendant morals and wisdom..its Satan they believe,calling God wrong in the spirit of self autonomy……blind to their chains and self deception….so we wait ,because truth ,justice and good are dwindling commodities in a world so dark and corrupt…Yet the God who sees us gives good to all persons in one way or another…as we ,are made in His image…male and female…

    Democrats are above rules, they only have a problem if a Republican violates them.
    Pelosi is losing control if she hasn’t lost it already. The extreme left wing of the party is taking over. Cummings and Waters aren’t smart enough to understand the damage they are causing for their own party. Not even going to comment about ‘pencil neck,’ not worth the effort.
