House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Eliot Engel (D., N.Y.) announced he will eliminate the terrorism subcommittee in favor a new subcommittee dedicated to investigating President Donald Trump.

“We just thought, if we’re going to do something relevant in this era where Congress is going to reassert itself, where there are so many questionable activities of this Administration vis-à-vis foreign policy, that it made sense to have this,” Engel told the New Yorker.

The terrorism subcommittee was created after the 9/11 terror attacks to overseer U.S. “efforts to manage and coordinate international programs to combat terrorism,” according to past committee rules.
