A demand for documents by a key House Republican adds to the growing pressure on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s chief as he coordinates the government response to Hurricane Florence.

On Monday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy sent Brock Long a letter demanding documents related to his use of government vehicles to commute to his North Carolina home.

Gowdy asked for documents showing each time Brock used a government car and which staff joined him. The Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General has been investigating Long’s use of those vehicles.

“I am not focused on this investigation,” Long said in a statement released by his office on Monday evening. “I am fully focused on those impacted by Hurricane Florence.”

The investigation into Long has been referred to federal prosecutors for possible criminal charges, the Wall Street Journal reported. The Department of Homeland Security referred questions on the inquiry to the Inspector General’s office, which didn’t return phone calls. The Department of Justice didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Kind of hard to label this a partisan “witch hunt” when the person pushing it forward is Trey Gowdy.

Seriously what is it with this administration and wasting the taxpayer’s money?

We had Scott Pruitt and his cone of silence and unnecessary extra security, Ryan Zinke and his chartered jets, Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, and his taxpayer-funded world tour, and that is just to name a few.

It’s like everybody that Trump picks to be in his cabinet is some mobster looking to line his pockets with everything that is not nailed down.

    When the person at the top is corrupt and self-serving, then the people below him see no reason they can’t do the same. This is easy for them since Dotard has no idea how government works, doesn’t give a damn about how government works, and is too lazy and stupid to find out what’s happening in his own administration. You scratch a republican, you find a crook.

    I have heard many times by MSNBC contributors that this “starts at the top”. I can’t disagree because Trump has profited at his properties while also pushing all boundaries historically exceeding costs of past presidents and first families for travel, security and costing localities vast sums of money. Fox News has double standards.

    “divorce.”
    “The president has told close associates in recent days that he views DeSantis — who won his Aug. 28 GOP primary thanks to Trump’s strong support — as profoundly disloyal for distancing himself from the president’s assertion that the Hurricane Maria death toll was inflated by Democrats for political purposes,” Politico explained.” “Gov. Rick Scott, who is the Republican Party nominee for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL), also refused to go along with the commander-in-chief’s conspiracy theory.”
