Just two days in from the summer recess, leaders of the House Oversight and Reform Committee are already engulfed in an ugly, public fight that escalated Tuesday morning when the top Republican deemed the Democratic chairman’s oversight efforts in need of oversight themselves.

Ranking member Jim Jordan of Ohio sent a new letter to Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland Tuesday saying the Democrats’ charge that Jordan lied in a previous letter about the details of Democrats’ recent visit to Mexico was in itself a lie.

The article goes on to state the following:

“No matter how hard you try to spin your conduct, you cannot legitimize your politicized oversight,” Jordan wrote in the letter. “We are concerned that because you have chosen to politicize border security, your oversight will not lead to the real legislative reforms needed to solve the crisis at our southern border. Your entire course of conduct in investigating the Administration’s border security efforts has been in pursuit of facts to fit your preconceived political narrative.”

Jordan has accused Cummings and other committee Democrats of hiding information about Democratic lawmakers’ trips  to Mexico in August, asking what “oversight” they provided while out of the country. He demanded a detailed itinerary, congressional oversight they provided, a list of attendees, why the State Department was not advised about the trips, and if they plan to visit Mexico again.

He inquired about Rep. Veronica Escobar of Texas’ involvement after Customs and Border Protection officials said her staff coached migrants about U.S. asylum.

Cummings replied with answers to each accusation, saying his staff notified Jordan “at least five days” before the Juarez trip, that Republicans were invited, that the State Department was notified “the day before.”

“Your claim that I have ‘not explained’ why I authorized this trip and your suggestion that the purpose of this trip was to ‘coach’ immigrants on how to exploit immigration law loopholes are also inaccurate,” Cummings wrote. “My staff informed your staff — before the trip — that the purpose was to see firsthand the shelter currently housing immigrants who are being blocked from entering the United States to request asylum under our laws.”

    The entire Democrat party are liars. One lies and the rest swear to it. They have no conscience, no morals and no brains. All they care about is power. I truly believe they went to Mexico to school them on how to enter and stay in the US, so they can get their votes. How come they never cared about them before.?They are so transparent, to the point of being mentally ill, and the liberals are right behind them. Pelosi has given whatever power she had to the squad because Pelosi has no spine.

    I’ve lived outside Baltimore city limits for about 30 yrs. I see what goes on in Cummings district. I know DML has driven through it. It’s shameful & only getting worse. Cummings & the city government hasn’t done squat since I’ve moved back. The morale of the citizens are so low. It’s not hard for the democrats to get reelected. Until Cummings along with the other democrat demons are out nothing will ever change for Baltimore city. For the last 3 yrs Cummings only mission along with the democrats is get rid of Trump & con the people of this country Trump is a bad person. I’m not trash talking down the citizens of the city. But it’s our government democrats bringing down Baltimore. These people can’t go out without fearing for there lives especially at night.

    It is time that the Republicans take the gloves off and start hammering these liars on a daily, weekly and monthly basis for their continuation of lies that the MSM should be calling them out on but refuses to do so. Rep Jim Jordan is a pit bull when it comes to this. Between him, Rep Mark Meadows, Rep Matt Gaetz, Rep Devin Nuenez and others in the House we are in good shape I believe. I think the loss last night of what the Democrats see as a key congressional seat in NC is proof that the American people are tired of their antics and that they refuse to do the job they were put there to do. I also think many of these long time congressmen/women like Jerry Nadler are scared they will not only be primaried in their districts by fellow Democrat who want socialism but they are also scared that Republicans could unseat them as well. This Congress is as ineffectual as any I have seen in my lifetime. The Jihad Squad as I predicted was going to create massive headaches for Nancy Pelosi and they have. Their swing so far to the left has caused a massive shift within the party. Many Democrats who supported Biden are not going to support that type of hardline swing to the left. They are workers who were left behind by Obama administration policies and while they may not like everything that President Trump has done they are back to work and their wages have risen something that wasn’t happening for them before. African Americans who have traditionally voted for Democrats are also working in record numbers as are Hispanics. Both of these groups while not happy with everything President Trump has said or done also do not want their jobs to go away. Many in both groups are feeling abandoned by the Democrat party who seem intent on giving away everything to illegal aliens and that is not sitting well with them. If President Trump gets support in the high teen to low 20 percent of both groups his election is guaranteed. Even suburban women are getting fed up with the leftward lurch since last November. They were told by many of these same Democrats that they were going to go to DC and fight for the things they needed and not impeachment yet what have they done? They’ve forgotten what they promised and have gone full steam ahead with this impeachment nonsense. It will be their demise.
