Jewish Democrats to Step Into Key Roles in House


Here come the Jewish Democrats.

With the Democrats' win in the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, several Jewish lawmakers will step into key positions.

According to JTA:

Caucus elections will take place between now and the launch of the 116th Congress, but barring a surprise, these five Jewish Democrats are now set to chair key House committees, including three from New York — Jerrold Nadler, the Judiciary Committee; Eliot Engel, Foreign Affairs; and Nita Lowey, Appropriations. Also, Adam Schiff of California will helm the Intelligence Committee and John Yarmuth of Kentucky will lead the Budget Committee.

The Federalist reports that Nadler and the Democratic leadership will try to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh for alleged perjury and will investigate President Trump for alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
