Freedom Caucus Democrats, Republicans Prepare For Face-Off
The Freedom Caucus, a House Oversight Committee, is preparing to defend President Donald Trump in a newly Democratic House of Representatives.
Politico reports Rep.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Rep.
Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and other progressives are eager to begin investigating the president.
“I’m hoping that will rebalance the committee a little bit.
We could use a little bit of heft from the left." Rep.
Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.)
Tlaib made headlines on her first day in office when she pledged to impeach Trump.
“I don’t know that any of them will be timid about expressing their opinions." Mark Meadows, the chairman of the Freedom Caucus
Meadows has said he hopes the clashes stay political and don't reach a personal level in the committee.
