Oversight is the biggest winner of the midterm elections

Oversight Committee Democrats want private emails written by Ivanka Trump, Trump Organization documents pertaining to foreign payments, documents pertaining to sexual-assault allegations against Customs and Border Patrol employees, documents pertaining to putting a citizenship question on the 2020 census, a hearing to secure testimony from Steve Bannon, documents pertaining to allegations of political retaliation against the State Department, and much, much, much more.

Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee intend to ask the IRS to turn over Trump’s tax returns, Ari Melber reported on MSNBC Tuesday night, raising the prospect that the public will finally find out what exactly the president has been so determined to hide from us.

Other questions abound. What is the full financial relationship between Trump, his family business, and the autocrats who run the country of Saudi Arabia? What is the nature of the Trump Organization’s ties to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard? How credible are the sexual-misconduct allegations that more than 20 women made against Trump, and to how many women has he paid hush money?
