If it was not clear already, then a decision by the new chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee makes it crystal clear that Democrats will primarily focus on opposing President Donald Trump for the next two years.
Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) announced this week he intends eliminate the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism in lieu of a new subcommittee devoted to investigating Trump.
Speaking with the New Yorker, Engel claimed there "wasn't a great clamor" to keep the terrorism subcommittee while there is much excitement among Democratic members to investigate Trump's many foreign policy "scandals."
Meanwhile, vital foreign policy issues important to U.S. national security will take a back seat.
As the New Yorker noted, the House Foreign Affairs Committee almost never initiates investigations.
