Democrats propose removing 'so help you God' from oath

A committee in the House of Representatives, now controlled by Democrats, is proposing to remove a reference to God that is part of the oath given to witnesses who testify before the panel. This comes as a part of the new rules packages that should be approved this week according to Fox News who was able to obtain a copy of an early draft.

Based on the Fox News report, they're stating that The House Committee on Natural Resources will remove the reference to God and ask all witnesses to say the following instead: "Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?" 

Fox News stated about the draft that the "rules proposal places the words "so help you God" in red brackets, indicating they are slated to be cut. The words "under penalty of law" are in red text, indicating that Democrats propose to add that phrasing to the oath."

Democrats also plan to remove the pronouns "his or her" and replace those with "their."

They will also attempt to replace "Chairman" with "Chair."

This is what Democrats are wasting our time with and I'm not OK with it.

Let's see what Trump says about it.
