The new Democratic Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee plans to abolish a counter-terrorism subcommittee in the coming weeks; using the resources to create a new panel to probe President Trump’s “foreign policy scandals.”
“Eliot Engel, the Democratic congressman from New York who has just taken over the chairmanship of the House Foreign Affairs Committee […] told me that his first act as chairman will be to create a new subcommittee devoted to investigating President Trump,” writes the New Yorker.

“After the 9/11 attacks, Engel’s predecessors on Foreign Affairs set up a new terrorism subcommittee […] It is telling that this is the subcommittee that Engel will now eliminate in favor of his new investigative panel,” adds the author.
A NEW LOW: Liberal Ad Shows 'Racist' GOP Voters MOWING DOWN Minority Kids
A left-leaning Hispanic voting organization stood by their shocking new advertisement on Tuesday; doubling-down on a vicious campaign video that showed a random GOP voter intentionally mowing down minority children in his Confederate-flag adorned pick-up truck.
The stunning video, titled “American Nightmare,” was released by the Latino Victory Fund and shows groups of minority children fleeing a marauding supporter of GOP Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie; chasing his would-be victims in a “confederate” truck with a “Don’t tread on me” license plate.
Virginia Democrat candidate Ralph Northam defended the video on Tuesday, saying Gillespie’s own rhetoric forced the liberal organization to create the ad.
“Independent groups are denouncing Ed Gillespie because he has run the most divisive, fear-mongering campaign in modern history,” Northam campaign spokeswoman Ofirah Yheskel told Fox News. “It is not shocking that communities of color are scared of what his Trump-like policy positions mean for them.”
Watch the revolting video above.
A NEW LOW: Left-Wing Congressman Uses BARRON TRUMP to SMEAR the President
Liberal Congressman Steve Cohen used the President’s youngest son to viciously attack the Commander-in-Chief over the weekend, accusing Trump of neglecting Barron and spending his time on the golf course; bizarrely adding “He will start a war!”
Cohen smeared the President on twitter New Year’s Eve, saying reporters never “see him with Barron,” adding that “you’d think he’d be golfing with Dad occasionally, but narcissists only engage in activities where they are the show.”
“He golfs when he could be reading or be in church or be with his family. Never see him with Barron. You’d think he’d be golfing with Dad occasionally but narcissists only engage in activities where they are the show. No movies, sports viewing either just Fox! He will start a war!” tweeted the left-wing legislator.

Cohen’s comments immediately came under fire from both liberals and conservatives, warning the lawmaker that “kids are off limits.”
“You went after a child in a tweet?? What on earth is WRONG with you? Disgraceful and disgusting,” wrote one user.
