For the life of me, I could not figure out what had triggered the White House resident’s latest round of NarciRacism™ via Twitter. Was it to distract from his numerous scandals, pending court cases and the growing momentum for his impeachment?
Yes, possibly. Likely even.
But then I came across the most compelling reason why the owner of the nation’s most expensive, vermin-attracting properties has begun a relentless campaign against Rep. Cummings, specifically.
It’s because of her emails.
Not Hillary’s emails, but Ivanka’s emails.
House Dems authorize subpoenas for senior White House aides’ official communications

The House Oversight and Reform Committee voted on Thursday to authorize subpoenas for senior White House officials’ communications via private email accounts and messaging applications, a significant escalation in a years-long, bipartisan effort to learn more about potential violations of federal record-keeping laws.
Thursday’s vote by the Democrat-led panel came after the White House refused to turn over the messages voluntarily earlier this month — including senior adviser Jared Kushner’s WhatsApp communications with foreign officials, senior adviser Ivanka Trump’s use of a private email account to conduct official business, and former chief strategist Stephen Bannon’s use of a personal mobile device for White House business.
“It makes clear that White House records belong to the public — not the president,” Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said. “The committee has already received evidence of multiple senior officials using their personal accounts to conduct official business.”
On a party-line vote, the committee authorized Cummings to subpoena all communications sent or received since President Donald Trump took office that were not forwarded to official email accounts within 20 days, as required by law. Cummings can also subpoena information about whether those messages contained classified information.
So we can expect relentless harassment of Rep. Cummings from the White House as he attempts to shield the one person in his inner circle that he values above all others, from the consequences of his scandal-ridden administration.
