Dems pick Maloney as House Oversight panel chair

United States House Democrats picked New York Representative Carolyn Maloney (pictured) as the new chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

Maloney has served as the panel's acting chair following the death of Elijah Cummings in October at the age of 68 and was chosen today to assume the role on a permanent basis.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee is one of the three House panels leading the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump over his controversial phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky.
