    Top Republican senators dismissed leaked details from former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, saying the allegations were not new.“There’s nothing new here. It does seem to be an effort to sell books,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, told reporters in Washington on Monday.“The basic dynamic of the obligation of the House to take the time they have to put a case together doesn’t change. I don’t think it changes any fundamental information, nor does it change the basic case that the House has to put the case together,” added Sen. Roy...

    Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., said on Sunday that he hopes undergoing impeachment and the trial in the Senate will be instructive for President Trump. Brauns comments came during a contentious back-and-forth with moderator Chuck Todd on NBCs Meet The Press, where Todd told the Indiana lawmaker that Trump "is going to take acquittal and think, 'I can keep doing this,'" "No, I don't think that," Braun replied. "Hopefully, it'll be instructive." "I think he'll put two and two together," the Indiana Republican added. "In this case, he was taken to the carpet."

    The Hill ^ | January 6, 2019 | JORDAIN CARNEY
    Roughly a dozen GOP senators want to change the Senates rules and allow for lawmakers to dismiss articles of impeachment against President Trump before the House sends them over. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) introduced the resolution on Monday, arguing the Senate's impeachment rules do not envision a scenario where the House would delay transmitting articles against a president, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has done. "The Constitution gives the Senate sole power to adjudicate articles of impeachment, not the House. If Speaker Pelosi is afraid to try her case, the articles should be dismissed for failure to prosecute and Congress...

    Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) told Breitbart News during a press conference Tuesday as many as three Democrat senators could vote to clear President Donald Trump of any wrongdoing during a potential Senate impeachment trial. Many establishment media outlets have speculated over whether some Senate Republicans could flip and vote to convict President Donald Trump during a Senate impeachment trial; however, there remains a distinct possibility many red state Senate Democrats could vote to clear Trump.

    Indianas two Republican U.S. senators, Todd Young and Mike Braun, have written a letter to Attorney General William Barr calling for his assistance in Illinois and Indianas investigation into late Indiana abortion doctor, Ulrich George Klopfer. The letter follows the recent horrific discovery of more than 2,200 fetal remains in his Illinois home. Dr. Klopfer performed abortions in South Bend, Fort Wayne, and Gary for decades. Dr. Klopfers blatant disregard of human life raises many questions about how the remains were transported across state lines, where and when the abortions occurred, the gestational age of each unborn child at the...

Listen, you dont negotiate with terrorists or the devil. This is quite possibly the dumbest thing a Republican has ever suggested.

    The massive spending deal, negotiated by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and agreed to by the president, looks poised to kill off the Budget Control Act of 2011the law that was meant to restrain federal spending. With that law on the way out, the question arises: Where can fiscal conservatives turn to exert real and lasting fiscal discipline? Thankfully, two members of Congress have introduced a bill to do just that. The Maximizing Americas Prosperity Actor MAP Actis a bill proposed by Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, and Sen.

    Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Mike Braun (R-IN) are still trying to address the fentanyl and heroin overdose crisissoon to be joined by a methamphetamine and cocaine overdose crisisby denying chronic pain patients access to pain relief. They have just introduced a bill they call The FDA Opioid Labeling Accuracy Act, which would prohibit the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from allowing opioids to be labeled for intended use of around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment until a study can be completed on the long-term use of opioids. Set aside the fact that most pain specialists agree that, in some cases, long-term...

    Sens. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) introduced a bill Monday aiming to tackle the problem of teacher debt. The bill, the Consider Teachers Act of 2019, amends the TEACH grant program to resolve problems where some of those grants were inadvertently converted into loans that must be paid back with interest. "The TEACH grant is an important program to incentivize teachers to serve in neglected communities, but 12 years of poor government management has turned these grants into groans for thousands of teachers," Braun said in a statement."To show our appreciation for America's great teachers, let's get off...

    The struggle between Trump and the woefully large number of pre-Trump Republicans in the Senate is not really about the true constitutional separation of powers. McConnell and crew are not standing up for the rightful power of the legislative branch as the Framers intended; they are shilling for the Iron Triangle. Freshmen senators seem to find out early how to win the good graces of the liberal media and the permanent bureaucracy. Barely four weeks into their tenure, every new GOP senatorMarsha Blackburn (Tenn.), Mike Braun (Ind.), Kevin Cramer (N.D.), Josh Hawley (Mo.), Martha McSally (Ariz.), Rick Scott (Fla.), and...

    Indiana Democrat Joe Donnelly lost his Senate seat on Tuesday in a hard-fought race against Republican businessman Mike Braun. Donnelly, who took the seat in 2012, lost the first Democratic Senate seat of the midterm election in a state President Trump won by 19 points in 2016. Braun cast himself as an outsider and a staunch supporter of Trump, while claiming Donnelly was out of line with Indiana values by supporting abortion rights and other issues.

    In 2016, the only battleground state Senate Republican to falter in a re-election bid was New Hampshire's Kelly Ayotte.  She fell by the slimmest of margins -- losing by roughly 1,000 votes (0.2 percentage points) statewide.  Conservative third party candidate Aaron Day ended up receiving more than 17,000 votes in the contest, tipping it to Democrat Maggie Hassan, who was also helped by a Libertarian candidate pulling in more than 12,000 ballots.  The little-known Day's candidacy benefited from anonymous mailers sent to Republican voters designed to attack Ayotte "from the right."  The liberal outfit behind the ads peddled their mischief...

    INDIANAPOLIS (WFFT) - A new statewide poll shows Republican Mike Braun is the favorite for Indiana's U.S. Senate seat, but the race is still too close to call. The IndyPolitics.org - Mason Strategies poll released Tuesday shows Braun leading Senator Joe Donnelly 47 to 43 percent. Libertarian Lucy Brenton had three percent of the vote and seven percent were undecided. Experts say this race is still a virtual tie, especially with the number of voters who still haven't made up their mind. Monday, the Downs Center for Indiana Politics shows Donnelly with a slight lead.

    Good news, but four points happen to be the margin of error of this poll. That means the race is effectively tied, which would be in line with other recent polls showing the incumbent, Donnelly, with a lead of 2-4 points or less.As for the Kavanaugh effect, eh. There *is* evidence in this particular case to support it but there’s a bunch of evidence cutting the other way right now nationally. The poll, conducted by Mason Strategies with a margin of 3.9 percent, showed Braun leading Donnelly 47-43, Libertarian Lucy Brenton had three percent of the vote and seven...

    Hoosier businessman and Senate Republican candidate Mike Braun has surged in the Indiana Senate race only two weeks before the November election, according to a poll released on Monday. Sen. Joe Donnellys popularity has continued to plummet ever since he decided to vote against Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Since the Senate confirmation vote, the incumbent Democrats favorability and his polling has bottomed out.

    If there is a silver lining in the tragic farce wrought on the nation by the Democratic Party in the Judge Brett Kavanaugh nomination hearings it is this: Regular Americans are recoiling at the shocking spectacle and Democrat support is plummeting. Every new poll coming out is uniformly showing middle Americans fleeing from the Democrats while a once-mildly apathetic Republican Party has been ginned up to energetic levels equal to the Democratic base. Further trouble for the much-hyped blue wave is that black voters are trending against Democrats, participating in the #walkaway movement and viewing the Kavanaugh moment very differently...
