The new legislative session of Congress begins tomorrow and incoming Democrats will be sworn in, taking back the House after winning it decisively in November’s midterm elections.
Among them are Representatives Maxine Waters (CA), Adam Schiff (CA), Jerry Nadler (NY), Elijah Cummings, (MD) and Richard Neal (MA). These five individuals are also the ones with the power to subpoena the Trump administration.
Adam Parkhomenko, who served as National Field Director for the Democratic National Committee in 2016, tweeted a photo of the five legislators. Accompanying it was a caption which set social media aflame.
Subpoena power, indeed:
People were thrilled and view it as a sign of hope after two years of Republican leadership.
With Democrats ready to formally taken control of the House of Representatives, President Trump will find himself having to comply with investigations into members of his administration.
Cummings, in particular, has signaled he will launch probes into the Trump administration after taking office tomorrow.
