    A Louisiana House committee voted favorably on four anti-abortion bills Wednesday (April 4). Three of the bills (House bills 287, 273 and 338) are amended versions of three similar proposals that have been tied up in a federal court battle since they were first approved during the 2016 legislative session. House Bill 449, which proposes the Louisiana Department of Health offer information about adoption as an alternative to abortion on their website, was the only new legislation. Proponents of the bills speaking during Wednesday’s house committee on health and welfare meeting said they hoped the clarified language would make it...

    A House Intelligence Committee investigation of Russian election meddling has concluded that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper misled Congress about disclosing information to CNN. The committee's final report on the investigation was approved on Thursday and now awaits an intelligence agency review. Despite 472 days of investigation and thousands of witnesses, the committee stated in its list of final conclusions and recommendations that it found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump, his campaign aides, and Russia. "The committee found no evidence that meetings between Trump associates—including Jeff Sessions—and official representatives of the Russian government—including Ambassador Kislyak—reflected...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite. The Florida lawmaker used her position on the committee that sets the police force’s budget to press its chief to relinquish the piece of evidence Thursday, in what could be considered using her authority to attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation. The Capitol Police and outside agencies are pursuing Imran Awan, who has run...

    The burning question on Capitol Hill is which Hillary Rodham Clinton will show up Thursday to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi: the affable and polished politician who wowed the Democratic presidential debate last week or the combative woman whose 2013 testimony has become a campaign liability. After months of back and forth conducted by press release and media interviews, Mrs. Clinton will get the chance to square off against investigators face to face in testimony expected to cover everything from her whereabouts during the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi to her decision to delete tens of thousands...

    This morning the House Veteran’s Affairs Committee unanimously voted to subpeona all emails and written correspondence from Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) Secretary Eric Shinseki, and other senior VA officials, regarding destruction of any “wait list” that existed for Veteran’s appointments at the Phoenix, AZ Department of Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center. The subpeona comes after weeks of stonewalling by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs after revelations that Veterans may have died due to being placed on a wait list at the Phoenix, AZ facility. Committee Chairman Rep. Jeff Miller (R) explained during that hearing that the senior leadership of the...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Lockheed Martin Corp.'s F-22 program got an unexpected lift Wednesday after House lawmakers approved $369 million to continue production of the radar-evading fighter jets. The surprise amendment, likely to reopen a debate over the necessity of the Cold War planes that cost $140 million each, was approved by the House Armed Services Committee by a vote of 31-30, along party lines. The extra funding was adopted as part of the 2010 Defense Department spending bill mark-up. The bill still needs to make its way through the full House and Senate.

    In a key step toward unravelling the secret history of the Cold War, the U. S. Senate last week released 50-year-old executive hearings on subversion and internal security matters conducted by Sen. Joe McCarthy (R.-Wis.). Running to more than 4,000 pages, these hearings are crammed with backstage data on a host of once-torrid issues—including controversial McCarthy sessions on the Voice of America, United States Information Agency libraries, State Department personnel, and the Army Signal Corps installation at Fort Monmouth, N.J., to name a few. The last is of special interest as it was the prelude to the famous Army-McCarthy fracas...

    A House committee investigating Martha Stewart's sale of stock in biotech company ImClone has "reached the end of the road" in trying to get her cooperation and may take legal action, a spokesman said Thursday.

Billy Tauzin, R-La., chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. After discussions with lawyers for the domestic design tycoon in recent weeks, "We have reached the end of the road with respect to Martha Stewart," Johnson said. He also said that phone...
