    Two House conservatives are calling on President Trump to “immediately withdraw" all troops from Afghanistan and Iraq, arguing the country needs to stop engaging in “endless wars.” In a letter sent to President Trump on Tuesday, House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) said keeping a military presence in the region could mean a loss of power for the U.S. “Throughout your entire presidency, you have worked tirelessly to Make America Great Again. We are confident you will repeat this feat again after this pandemic. However, the United States will not remain a great power for...

    While writing in an op-ed with Republican representative Andy Biggs in the USA Today, Republican Senator Rand Paul unloaded on director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci, accusing him of destroying the medical care system and ruining the economy. Paul and Biggs did admit that they appreciate Fauci's professional medial opinion however they came down hard on him for his weak and inaccurate coronavirus models including one that said 2.2 million people may die from the virus in the United States. “Fauci and company have relied on models that were later found to be...

    Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., along with Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said in an op-ed Thursday that the coronavirus lockdown recommendations of Dr. Anthony Fauci have “emasculated” the health care system and “ruined” the economy. “Fauci and company have relied on models that were later found to be deficient. He even has suggested that he can’t rely on any of the models, especially if the underlying assumptions are wrong,” the pair wrote in an op-ed for USA Today. “Yet, Fauci persists in advocating policies that have emasculated the medical care system and ruined the economy.” They pointed to Fauci's testimony last...

    A group of GOP lawmakers led by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) is calling on the Trump administration to temporarily stop issuing any new guest-worker visas amid the coronavirus pandemic. In a letter sent to President Trump on Wednesday, the lawmakers praised the White House’s decision to limit the number of immigrants coming into the country during the health crisis, but argued more action needs to be taken to ensure Americans who have lost their jobs due to the outbreak have ample opportunities to find new employment. “We should not force Americans to compete with foreign nationals while...

    Anthony Fauci looks to be skating on thin ice with President Trump, despite — or perhaps because of — a growing sense that he is the most trusted expert on the coronavirus crisis. The White House moved on Monday to squash suggestions that Fauci could be ousted from the president’s task force on the crisis. And Fauci himself sought to shore up his position during the White House press briefing, when he walked back remarks he had made at the weekend. During a CNN interview on Sunday, Fauci had suggested that mitigation measures would have been more effective had they...

    Before the holidays, if you remember, the House of Representatives voted to impeach the president on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The vote came months after a whistleblower complaint that alleged Trump tried to use the power of the presidency to coerce Ukraine to investigate the Bidens for his own political interests. President Trump and his associates maintain his request was not politically motivated and that he wanted to root out corruption. According to a few Republican lawmakers, the campaign against the president was a sleazy, sleazy process. And the main culprit, they alleged , is House Speaker...

    Top Republicans in the House are vowing to use every procedural tool available to them to strong-arm Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee and get them to hold a minority hearing on impeachment. In a letter led by House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), sent to Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday, the conservative members noted Republicans had previously requested a minority hearing be held before articles of impeachment were introduced. The group argued that while Democrats did not comply with their requested timeline, under current rules they are entitled to a hearing. “During the open hearing on...

    As House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff started to recall the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky during Thursday's hearing with the director of national intelligence, his colleagues noted that something didn't sound right. Schiff claimed that Trump told Zelensky, "I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand, lots of it, on this and on that, I’m going to put you in touch with people." When a few Republicans on the panel noted those words were not in the transcript, Schiff clarified that his summary was meant as "parody." That...

    WASHINGTON — Rep. Justin Amash's weekend statement that he believes President Donald Trump has committed impeachable offenses sparked mounting GOP criticism Monday of the Michigan congressman's position — and questions about his political future. “Justin’s a friend, but Justin is wrong on this, clearly, and the way he did this is all wrong as well,” said Amash’s fellow Freedom Caucus peer, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., in an interview Monday on Fox News. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said Sunday that he believes his GOP colleague is only seeking attention.

    A bipartisan group of lawmakers sent President Trump a letter Wednesday urging him to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria within the next six months. Trump has already committed to pulling back U.S. forces from the region, but Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., and others say it needs to happen quickly. “We write in bipartisan support of your announcement of the start of a “deliberate withdrawal” of U.S. military forces in Syria, and we welcome the completion of this process within the next six months.” Paul wrote to Trump in a letter that was also signed by Rep....

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report found no evidence of collusion between the Trump team and Russians that influenced the 2016 election. Also, no evidence of obstruction of justice. Witnesses were harassed for the past two years to further the Democrats’ and James Comey’s political agenda. All indictments arising out of the investigation were wholly unrelated to any notion of members of the Trump campaign working with the Russians. Let me say this plainly: not one single American was charged, indicted, or convicted for conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election. Not one. In an ironic twist, it was...

    The House and Senate this week voted overwhelmingly to provide back pay to about 800,000 federal workers who are going without paychecks because of the partial government shutdown.

Justin Amash (Mich.), Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Paul Gosar (Ariz.), Glen Grothman (Wis.), Thomas Massie (Ky.), Chip Roy (Texas) and Ted Yoho (Fla.). President Trump on Thursday indicated he would sign the bill, leading to its passage by unanimous consent in the Senate later that day. On Friday, the House cleared the measure in a 411-7...

    Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) says GOP House leaders put their members in a tough spot by failing to deliver on promises like a border wall, but that Republicans are gaining late traction by casting the election as a choice between job creation or angry mobs. "I like the catch phrase 'jobs or mobs,'" the first-term senator told Hill.TV's Friday edition of Rising. "We either are going to get more jobs or you gonna get mobs. The Democrats are their own worst enemy at this time because they don't have a policy for anything so they are just attacking." Biggs, whose...

    A border state Republican congressman is introducing a bill that would effectively use foreign funds to help pay for President Trump's planned wall on the Mexican border. Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona authored House Resolution 6657, which would establish a separate U.S. Treasury account to "hold deposits to be used to secure the southern border of the United States." Republican Reps. Scott Des Jarlais of Tennessee, Ralph Norman of South Carolina, Matt Gaetz of Florida and Paul Gosar of Arizona have signed on as co-sponsors. Biggs said in a statement obtained by The Washington Examiner that "even with a Republican-controlled...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Florida Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis, along with 10 other GOP members of the House, sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday, detailing formal criminal referrals against James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch and Andrew McCabe. While Sean Hannity and other conservative radio and TV talk show hosts played the letter up as if it is a momentous event, the truth is that it makes referrals that are already being acted upon by the Attorney General. Sessions has already and repeatedly made it clear that...
