Jordan Issues Scathing Letter Accusing Dems of Secretly Coordinating to Target Trump

Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) issued a scathing letter on Monday accusing Democrats of keeping Republicans in the dark about their coordination on Trump-related investigations.

Jordan claims House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) executed a nonpublic “Memorandum of Understanding” (MOU) with Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) which targeted the President without informing Republicans.

“You did not consult with Republican Members of the Committee or allow Members to consider and debate the terms of your MOU before executing the MOU with Chairwoman Waters,” Jordan writes. “You did not disclose the MOU’s existence to Members or the American people until after I raised the matter.”

The Washington Examiner reports that, “According to Jordan, Cummings vowed to share House Oversight Committee information with Waters in the covert agreement, even though doing do could conflict with House rules. Jordan said the agreement with Waters stipulated Cummings would consult her before issuing a subpoena.”

“If you intend to continue to use the Committee’s limited resources to attack President Trump for political gain, I hope that you will at least be transparent about your actions,” Jordan wrote. “Your ability to function as a fair and unbiased finder of fact is now at grave risk. The Members of the Committee — and, more importantly, the American citizens we represent —deserve to know exactly how you are leading this Committee.”

Watch: Waters Confronts Big Banks on Student Debt Crisis, Fails Miserably

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) failed miserably when she tried to blame the student loan crisis on big banks–despite President Obama nationalizing student loan programs in 2010.

During a House Financial Services Committee hearing earlier this morning, Waters said,  “Today there are more than 44 million Americans that owe … $1.56 trillion in student loan debt.  Last year, 1 million student loan borrowers defaulted which is on top of the 1 million borrowers who defaulted the year before.”

She then asked bank executives, “What are you guys doing to help us with the student loan debt? Who would like to answer first? Mr. Monihan? Big bank?”

“We stopped making student loans in 2007 or so,” he responded.

“So you don’t do it anymore?” she asked before moving on to the next banker, “Mr. Corbyn?”

He replied “We exited student lending in 2009.”

Waters moved on, “Mr. Dimon?”

“When the government took over student lending in 2010, we stopped doing all student lending,” he replied.

Investors Business Daily points out that due to the nationalization of student loans, federal student loan debt skyrocketed from $153.9 billion in 2009 to $1.1 trillion by the end of 2017:

In 2010, President Obama effectively nationalized student lending by cutting banks — which had been offering government-backed loans to students — out of the equation and having the government make the loans itself.

“By cutting out the middleman, we’ll save the American taxpayers $68 billion in the coming years,” Obama said when he signed this change into law. “That’s real money.”

As a result, federal student loan debt shot up from $154.9 billion in 2009 to $1.1 trillion by the end of 2017.

Maxine Madness: Those who Support Border Wall Don’t Love the Country

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) slammed Americans who support a border wall to secure the country during a recent speech.

At a rally in Los Angeles on Monday, Waters said, “This president is trying to keep a campaign promise to all of those people that he swore he would build a wall! And those people who want the wall are not patriots,” she claimed, “they are not people who love this country, they are not people who stand up for what’s right!”

The rally was part of a protest of the president’s declaration of a national emergency in order to build a wall or barrier along the southern border.

The congresswoman also called on supporters to “resist” the president and the “so-called national emergency.”

A January poll revealed that 62 percent of Americans believe illegal immigration is a problem in the United States and 43 percent support the President’s efforts to build a wall along the southern border.

Maxine Waters Triggered, Hopes Americans “Turn the Television off” During SOTU

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) hopes Americans will turn off their televisions during President Trump’s State of the Union address tonight because “he is not worthy of being listened to.”

“I don’t even know why he wants to come and give the State of the Union,” Waters said to Essence magazine.

“The state of the union under him has not been good. And he has been divisive, and I think he’s putting us all in harm’s way. And so he is not worthy of being listened to,” she said.

“I don’t know why anybody would want to pay attention to anything that he has to say. He lies over and over again…But since he is a great liar, he’ll say anything because he’s capable of saying anything without facts, without research. And so, I’m not looking forward to his State of the Union, and I hope people will turn the television off!”

Waters isn’t the only House Democrat triggered by President Trump.

So far, at least four Democrats announced they would not be attending the speech tonight.

Georgia Democrats Hank Johnson and John Lewis said they would not attend the speech, as well as Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee and Rep. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon.
