DEMOCRATS ON THE HOUSE Committee on Oversight and Reform threatened to subpoena Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Monday, citing a long-standing failure to provide members of Congress requested documents and her refusal to testify.
“Ignoring – or defying – requests for congressional oversight in order to spend your time campaigning for President Trump is an abuse of your position as Secretary of Education,” Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney wrote in a letter to DeVos. “I am not suggesting that you may never campaign for the president, but you may not do so when it interferes with your official duties, including your duty to testify before Congress.”
DeVos is scheduled to appear at a steakhouse in Cedar Rapids as a surrogate for the president during the Iowa caucuses on Monday. She’s also slated to campaign for him in Pennsylvania on Wednesday.
