    Didn't take long.

    not my issue to educate you on the subject that is your responsibility.
    so you just admit you have no clue what you are talking about thanks for letting us know.
    facts don't care about your feelings.

    I somehow bet you don't have a clue...it is clear that you didn't read the article...at least I am adult enough to admit that I didn't read it. The Republicans agreed to a committee...there needs to be oversight...and btw, there needs to be an investigation into whether Trump's actions led to the crisis we have now and why we don't have tests...further, we need to investigate why our emergency supplies were sent to China and are now returning to us via Russia...now we have subsequently sold and repurchased our own emergency supplies, likely at an inflated price.

    What else do they have, if they believe something like this?

    "Actually he was 100% competent during and after and has continued to show pretty good leadership on handling things."


    But the mob boss already knows how gullible they are...

    How he gets away with lying so much: “Look, you just tell them and they believe it. That’s it: you just tell them and they believe. They just do.”

    You noticed how the rank and file cons shut up about the Kennedy Center when the mob boss said he liked it?

    I don't much care what Trump likes about a particular bit of special pork. I want to know why that particular entity, which by law must have its performances sustained by private funds, got special additional pork - it was already federally funded to cover is operational and maintenance costs as it is every year.

    The only difference is that he’ll be incompetent while Pelosi attempts to create transparency over how our tax dollars are being used to help Americans hurt by the outbreak.

    And predictably, trump will fight all subpoenas and any attempts to learn where the money is going.

    The creation of such a committee was part of the legislation.
    Why expect the administration to fight oversight? There are no privlege issues involved; no checks and balances conflicts-- Congess appropriated the funds and has a right to see how its spent.

    What will you move the goal posts to after he fights oversight?

    Depends on its nature. If Congress wants to know whether the president thought about doing something, maybe discussed it with advisors and ultimately didn't take the course of action, one would think resistance would be warranted. After all, at that point we dealing with privlege issues and checks and balances issues.
    But otherwise no reason for concern.

    Okay, so you you acknowledge that trump will fight oversight. Makes one wonder why you tried wasting my time with the notion that he wouldn’t fight oversight.
