Sounds About Right: Democrats Will Terminate the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism and Replace It With a Committee to Investigate Trump

Serious people.

Susan Glasser at The New Yorker has an interesting article on Representative Eliot Engel of New York, who is now the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Quite surprisingly, as least to me, Engel is going to turn what has traditionally been a policy shop into more of an investigatory committee.

As often happens when a new chairman takes over in Congress, Engel is reorganizing the subcommittees on Foreign Affairs. He's eliminating the committee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade and replacing it with a panel that will devote all its time looking into Donald Trump. We don't yet know who will chair this subcommittee, but we do have some idea of what will be on their agenda.
