Jim Himes: Every Single Day This Administration Gives You the Reason to Investigate

‘This administration, every single day, gives you, you know, reason to investigate, reason to do oversight’

EXCERPT:

HIMES: “You know, we’ve been back together for one week since the -- since the election. And I will tell you, everyone from Maxine Waters, who held a meeting of the Democrats on the Financial Services Committee to the caucus meetings we’ve had, the ethic is one of making sure that yes, of course we’re going to do the investigations. And I want to be clear here. You know, this administration, every single day, gives you, you know, reason to investigate, reason to do oversight. My point — and I think the leadership and the general environment within the Democratic caucus says, yes, of course we have to do that. It’s what the Constitution says we should do. But we also need to make real progress for the American people. And look, there’s only so many days in a year. You said immigration, yes, but on transportation infrastructure, on wages, retirement security. At the end of these two years we better have some accomplishments for the American people to say you trusted us and here is what we did for you.”
