New revelations surfaced last week after Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) revealed that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee member Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and Chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee Maxine Waters (D-CA) executed and signed a secret “Memorandum of Understanding” designed as a ‘secret pact’, vowing to “target” President Trump with partisan investigations into his finances.
According to the letter sent from ranking committee member Jim Jordan to Cummings, the secret memos were also signed by House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA). Rep. Schiff is already under fire for vowing to investigate the President for Collusion, even though Mueller exonerated TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION OF COLLUSION WITH RUSSIA!
Rep. Jim Jordan blasted the Democrats, as he stated…
Regardless, now three different House Democrat-controlled committees have launched subpoenas into President Trump’s financial records that are at the Mazars accounting firm, and the Deutsche Bank! Combine that with the fact that House members like Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, and their fellow House and Senate Democrats vowed to continue launching impeachment proceedings against President Trump, and to remove him from the office! Interestingly, they refuse to reveal on what basis they would launch impeachment or removal proceedings against the President!
A Congressional official told investigative reporter Sara Carter that the MOUs that were signed by various top Democrats, in an attempt to conspire and destroy the President…
“We’d describe (the MOUs) as an agreement to conspire and coordinate their efforts to attack and investigate POTUS,” said a congressional official with knowledge of the MOUs. “This is not how committee’s normally operate. Dems aren’t interested in legislating. Only attacking POTUS.”
Sara Carter reported that Congressman Jim Jordan requested that Elijah Cummings answer very specific questions about the secret memos. Jordan said…
“If you intend to continue to use the Committee’s limited resources to attack President Trump for political gain, I hope that you will at least be transparent about your actions,” said Jordan at the end of his letter. “Your ability to function as a fair and unbiased finder of fact is now at grave risk. The Members of the Committee—and, more importantly, the American citizens we represent—deserve to know exactly how you are leading this Committee. I look forward to your detailed answers to these questions.”
Questions for Cummings
- How many MOUs with committee chairpersons have you signed as Chairman since the beginning of the 116th Congress?
- Would you provide the Committee with a detailed list of the other MOUs you have signed, including their dates, signatories, and topics?
- Why did you not publicly disclose that you had signed MOUs with committee chairpersons?
- Will you publicly disclose all the MOUs you have signed as Chairman since the beginning of the 116th Congress?
- Why did you choose not to consult with any Republican Members before signing these MOUs?
- Have you signed any MOUs as Chairman with any entities outside of the House Representatives relating to the Committee’s oversight or legislative work?
- To the extent your MOUs create duties for the Committee that conflict with the Rules of the House of Representatives or the Rules of the Committee, which duties prevail?
- The Rules of the Committee for the 116th Congress do not authorize the Chairman to bind the Committee through an MOU.Could you explain the specific authority that allows you to bind the Committee through an MOU without first obtaining approval through a vote of the Committee?
- As I understand your MOU with Chairwoman Waters, you have committed to sharing Committee information with the Financial Services Committee. This provision of your MOU may conflict with Rules of the House of Representatives and the Committee’s whistleblower protocol, which requires the Committee to keep some Committee information confidential. Will you still protect the confidentiality of whistleblower information notwithstanding your apparent obligation to share it with the Financial Services Committee?
- As I understand your MOU with Chairwoman Waters, you have agreed to consult with her before issuing a subpoena. Do you intend to consult with Chairwoman Waters before or after you consult with me, as required by Committee Rules? If I object to your proposed subpoena, do you intend to consult with Chairwoman Waters before or after the Committee votes, as you promised in the Committee’s organizing meeting?
- As I understand your MOU with Chairwoman Waters, you have declined to include any provision protecting the Minority’s rights to documentary or testimonial information. Can you guarantee that Minority Members will have the same access to documentary or testimonial information under this MOU as we do in every other Committee inquiry?
In the end, the Democrats don’t really care about collusion with Russia, since it is they who were the ones doing the colluding! They don’t really care about obstruction of justice since there is not any evidence that President Trump obstructed anyone from investigating a crime that never occurred! In fact, President Trump had the power to fire Mueller or anyone within the investigation, YET HE DIDN’T! President Trump could have used executive privilege and not answer any questions form the Special Counsel, YET HE DIDN’T! Instead, all evidence shows that it was Hillary Clinton AND THE DNC ITSELF, who colluded with Russia! It was the Democrats who actively interfered with the ongoing investigation! It was the Democrats who have attacked, and continue to attack a President without provocation! It was the Democrats who paid for and used a phony dossier to manipulate the FISA Courts to grant their operatives permission to spy on an opposing campaign, which is NOT JUST SIMILAR TO WATERGATE, BUT MUCH WORSE! Still, the Democrats choose to employ false attacks, fake allegations, corrupt and underhanded tactics, simply to overturn the 2016 election so they can return power to the Global Marxist based Fascist Elites, as they work to undermine our nations Constitutional Republic, while enriching and empowering themselves, as well as, their allies throughout the Deep State!
