Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., was selected on Monday to be the top Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee – setting him up for a high-profile role as Republicans seek to combat Democratic oversight moves on the Trump administration.
"Unfortunately, rather than conducting credible oversight, House Democrats have spent significant time and resources harassing the Trump Administration purely out of spite and hatred.”
The Democrat-controlled House Oversight and Reform Committee has been aggressively monitoring the Trump administration’s spending, especially in light of the massive amounts of federal money being given out amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Democrats have slammed the Trump administration for revelations in a Government Accountability Office report that found that nearly $1.1 million in coronavirus relief payments totaling some $1.4 billion went to dead people.
The revelation of more than $1 billion in public money erroneously paid outshines a light on the part of the government's massive relief program with which most ordinary Americans are most familiar.
