The Dims love throwing this out there to justify their plethora of investigations into the current administration. Just what the heck is it? And what authorizes it? Here’s what Wiki says: Congressional oversight is oversight by the United States Congress over the Executive Branch, including the numerous U.S. federal agencies. Congressional oversight includes the review, monitoring, and supervision of federal agencies, programs, activities, and policy implementation. Congress exercises this power largely through its congressional committee system. Oversight also occurs in a wide variety of congressional activities and contexts. These include authorization, appropriations, investigative, and legislative hearings by standing committees; specialized investigations by select committees; and reviews and studies by congressional support agencies and staff. Congress’s oversight authority derives from its “implied” powers in the Constitution, public laws, and House and Senate rules. It is an integral part of the American system of checks and balances. Get that? Implied powers. In other words, something Congress has taken upon itself in addition to specific constitutional powers. This will be great if … if our representatives actually represented us, the American people. Sadly, from what we’re seeing from the current bunch of political hacks, one wonders if that is no longer the case. What are your views on what is currently going on in the House?
