Dem Rep. Elijah Cummings: Stop Picking On Hillary Clinton!
These are the names we’ve been called for the last 8 years and I don’t remember once you ever coming to our defense. So listen closely to me when I tell you to go jump off. If Hillary cannot take the heat, she has no business running for President of the United States.
House Democrats slammed their Republicans colleagues Thursday for issuing 17 subpoenas and sending 54 letters in pursuit of information related to Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Rep. Elijah Cummings, ranking Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, called the congressional investigation a “desperate onslaught of frivolous attacks.”
“House Republicans have focused more on their obsession with bringing down Secretary Clinton than on any other issue facing Congress,” Cummings said in a statement. “This is an outrageous abuse of taxpayer dollars for partisan political purposes, particularly when Republicans are ignoring so many pressing issues facing the American people.”
Democrats have frequently objected to the GOP oversight efforts that followed FBI Director James Comey’s controversial decision in July to close his year-long probe of Clinton’s private emails without recommending indictments for anyone involved.
