4 members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ro Khanna (Calif.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) were named Tuesday night to the House Oversight Committee.

Why it matters: The influential Oversight Committee, led by Rep. Elijah Cummings, will serve as a powerful check on the Trump administration, which has accrued a laundry list of potential subpoena targets over the past two years. The four new members all of which, besides Khanna, are freshmen have been exceptionally outspoken in their criticism of the administration, with Tlaib in particular making headlines recently for her expletive-laced call to impeach President Trump.

4. This will be good for them as Chairman Cummings is a strong Dem...

who will help them get established. And they've got their work cut out for them as the Cohen hearing is coming up in early Feb. They've got to do their research and come up with what and how they want to get info out of Cohen on trump and his campaign and admin.

This committee assignment shows the Speaker's wisdom in putting these promising reps in position to use their inquisitiveness and outspokeness to best advantage.

Good luck to all of them.
