The Hill reports:
The Republican-controlled House Oversight and Accountability Committee has disbanded the Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, which focused on issues including voting rights, freedom of assembly and criminal justice reform policies.
In a committee meeting on Tuesday, Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) said this doesn’t mean topics related to these issues can’t be brought before the committee.
“Let me be very clear: any topic that’s not mentioned in the subcommittee jurisdiction is reserved for the full committee,” Comer said. “We can have a committee hearing in this committee on basically anything we want.”

.@GOPoversight tried to toss out the Civil Rights & Civil Liberties Subcommittee w/o anybody noticing, but we won’t sit idly by!
The pursuit of justice is ongoing & I’ll defend our civil rights at all costs.
TY, @CheyannaMarie97 x @thehill! https://t.co/JFepbvqFwC
