House Dems start probe into Trump firings at DHS

Three House Democrats, Jerrold Nadler, Elijah Cummings, Bennie Thompson, initiated a probe into what they are calling “unprecedented firings” at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Hill reported on Thursday.

"We are also concerned that the President may have removed DHS officials because they refused his demands to violate federal immigration law and judicial orders," top House Democrats wrote in a letter to Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan.

The lawmakers also demanded communications relating to the departure of the former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen (pictured), as well as former Secret Service Director Randolph Alles's exit.
