Elijah Cummings opens House probe into Pence's stay at Trump Ireland property

House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings sent letters to White House officials on Thursday asking for more information regarding Vice President Mike Pence's recent stay at Trump's property in Ireland.

The letters, obtained by the Washington Examiner, were sent to U.S. Secret Service Director James Murray, Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg, Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, and Pence's Chief of Staff Marc Short.

"The Committee is seeking information about Vice President Mike Pence's stay earlier this week at the Trump International Golf Links and Hotel in Doonbeg, Ireland — 180 miles away from the Vice President's official meetings with Irish officials in Dublin," Cummings' letter states. "The Committee does not believe that U.S. taxpayer funds should be used to personally enrich President Trump, his family, and his companies."

Northwest Woodsman: I’m sure that president Trump really is desperately in need of the government funds expended during the VP stay at his resort. Cummings obviously has nothing better to do with his time like trying to resolve problems in the district he so poorly represents. Can’t you guys figure a way to get rid of him?

Why doesn’t this idiot do something useful like clean up his rodents and trash?

Anoth waste of time and tax payer funds, We the people need to tighten our belt and the First cut should be congressional compensation and benefits. Anyone that can give themselves a raise at someone else's expense has too much power. Second institute term limits for Congress. Third perform investigations into all current congressional taxes and assets.

Cummings defines the democrats perfectly , just plain a$$ stupid. He will always bring a knife to a gun fight and wonder why he has loss. African culture ?

The VP has to stay somewhere soooo where does it matter where he stays and how much it costs. Like the president is going to make a fortune on this stay. would it be funny if it didnt cost anything but security (which would have to be paid no matter where he stayed)

cummings is a disgrace and blacks should if they had any morals and most blacks have zero morals should be ashamed. he is only trying to distract away from what a useless lying failure his own self is. the way some of the little black children have to live in that cess pool called baltimore have to live I wouldn't let my dog step foot in those dumps. that is what he needs to concern himself with. childrens heads being blown off all black children because of the drugs in that gross city. but because they are just little black children cummings could care less blacks need to grow a brain and use it and start voting like smart people do instead of allowing themselves to be reduced to nothing but lowly slaves of the democrat party and that is what most blacks are lowly slaves and most are too dumb to know it. if they did hae morals they would be ashamed.

The hotel was over 100 miles away. I have a feeling it was a security issue and that was the safest place for him to be. Hopefully they didn't have to drive him back and forth and could use a helicopter. The liberals like to jump and down and scream about things. When all is said an done the truth will come out and make them look like idiots. There was a reason he stayed there. If it was a security issue we may never know the exact reason.

Typical Cummings just wasting money. They have already told him why he stayed so far away. There were several reasons. Here is a link that explains it all

The people of Baltimore and the Montgomery County deserve Cummings. They will continue to vote for him and would follow him off a cliff if he pointed the direction. Poor, stupid Democrats.

Yes, that is an easy question to answer.

Loss??? I think you are searching for the word "lost"

Bubba culture?

Cummings needs to also cleanup the drugs and gangs which have taken over Baltimore. Had a Biden moment these are his "homeboys" that elect him.

Did anyone of Cummings' gang think to ask what the total cost would be to stay elsewhere? It seems to me that it's probably both cheaper and more safety conscious to stay at the Trump place. Rest assured that we're not paying rack rate for all of those people at the Trump property as we would elsewhere.

Northwest Woodsman: Tell the stupid a$$ to take it out of a president Trump’s presidential salary that he doesn’t accept and donates it back to the federal treasury. What a total affirmative action jerk.

You can't ask a question like that about Cummins it's racist

Everybody in politics had to stay there and get filmed having sex with a teenager (boy or girl).
Otherwise, there was no campaign financing.

If the elite families are going to hire a politician to work for them, then they insist on having blackmail material. It is just that simple.

Most Americans don't understand how politics in this corrupt Country works and so they mistakenly place their "beliefs" in a person who is usually very compromised. Mr Trump frequented the island. Ditto for Mr Sorteo who is well known as a cocaine enthusiast and homosexual. Mr Sorteo's boyfriend, Michael Robinson also attended the island. Of course Bill and Hillary attended the island, I mean come on. Right?
