Rep. Elijah Cummings, House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman is power tripping. Now that Democrats are in charge of the House, he along with Maxine Waters and the other heads are expanding their power with attitude.
On Thursday, Cummings warned Attorney General William Barr if DOJ official John Gore answer his subpoena and testify before the House panel, they will hold him in contempt of Congress. The DOJ had initially informed Cummings that Gore wouldn’t appear without an agency lawyer accompanying him.
“The Committee expects Mr. Gore to testify in accordance with the Committee’s lawful subpoena and the Committee’s rules. If Mr. Gore fails to comply with the subpoena, the Committee will consider him to be in contempt of Congress.”
Cummings wants to talk to Gore about the 2020 census citizenship question that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross wanted to add.
Rep. Jim Jordan delivered a report late today accusing Democrats of “fear mongering.” He called the citizenship question campaign a “partisan investigation.”
“The Democrat fear-mongering about the citizenship question on the 2020 Census is disingenuous and wrong. Soliciting citizenship information from the people present in the United States is not new and should not be controversial.”
“Every decennial census from 1820 to 1950 inquired about citizenship. From 1970 to 2000, the long-form census—sent to a segment of the population—inquired about citizenship. Since 2005, the Census Bureau has asked 3.5 million Americans about their citizenship every year.”
Here is the full letter from Jordan:Democrat-Fear-Mongering-on-the-Citizenship-Question1
The citizenship question on the 2020 Census and whether or not it violates the Constitution will be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court soon.
Cummings may as well hold a lot more than Gore in contempt of Congress because there are quite several citizens in this nation who currently find Congress in contempt for how they have treated this nation.
The Democrats are utterly dishonest and crooked. If not for the naivete and gullibility of their voters, hoodwinked by their hellivisions, media, and schools, they could never get away with it.
I am so ready for liberals to grow the heck up and stop being immature idiots who believe that they’re some gods to whom the rest of us must bow to and comply with every wish and demand.
