Dems launch probe into 'unprecedented' Trump firings at Homeland Security

Source: The Hill

Three top House Democrats on Thursday launched an investigation into what they described as “unprecedented firings” at the Department of Homeland Security.

House chairmen Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) wrote a letter to Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan demanding communications related to the departure or potential departure of former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, former Secret Service Director Randolph Ailes and other officials.

“We are deeply concerned that the firing and forced resignation of these officials puts the security of the American people at risk,” the lawmakers wrote. “We are also concerned that the President may have removed DHS officials because they refused his demands to violate federal immigration law and judicial orders.”

“Moreover, we are concerned by reports that, even as he has removed the Department’s leadership, the President has sought to empower a White House aide, Stephen Miller, to ‘be in charge of handling all immigration and border affairs,'” the Democrats wrote.

Grind away daily at his enablers until he’s the only one standing.

5. I'm glad that they are doing this, but

This White House will ignore the letter and/or deny the request for documents and testimony.

They will not respond to ANYTHING any more. EVER!
