Having been bitterly disappointed last week that Rep. Jason Chaffetz did not automatically drop his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email indiscretions, Rep. Elijah Cummings has struck back by demanding a probe into President-Elect Trump’s “vast financial entanglements” and his “unprecedented secrecy.” Cummings proclaims that Trump’s business dealings “raise serious questions about how he avoids conflicts of interest.”
Last week, Democrats said it’s time to put the email controversy to rest.. because Clinton lost.
“It is extremely disappointing that Chairman Chaffetz plans to continue investigating Secretary Clinton for years to come,” Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the Oversight Committee’s top Democrat, said in a statement.
“After everything our country has just been through – and particularly given that Donald Trump and Paul Ryan have both called for healing our nation’s divisions – I
think the American people deserve more from Congress than to continue
squandering taxpayer dollars on these baseless Republican accusations
and partisan attacks.”
Sure, poor Hillary – it’s just not fair that she should face
justice as well as be a loser in a national election against the “least
qualified” candidate for President ever, right?
So now they are punching back…
