    Republican Sen. Ron Johnson (Ohio) said Thursday that “it’s way too early” to discuss supporting President Trump in 2020. “Chris, you know it’s way too early to be talking about the 2020 - ” Johnson told CNN’s “New Day” when asked if he will support Trump in a 2020 re-election bid. “No, it isn’t not to say that you support the guy who’s president, who’s the head of your party,” CNN anchor Chris Cuomo pushed back. Johnson argued that 2020 could be a different landscape and pointed to the November’s upcoming midterm elections. “It could be a completely different world...

    A new batch of text messages between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page revealed President Barack Obama wanted updates on the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, according a report released Wednesday. On Sept. 2, 2016 — just weeks away from election day — Ms. Page texted Mr. Strzok, her lover, about preparing a report for then-FBI Director James B. Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” That raises questions about Mr. Obama’s involvement in the Clinton investigation, the report said. The message were released in a report by Sen. Ron Johnson,...

    Hemmer: To be clear, then, are you backing off of what was spoken last night? Johnson: No, I’m saying exactly the same thing. I have heard, from somebody who has talked to our committee, that there is a group of individuals in the FBI that was -- they were holding secret off-site meetings. Again, it’s Strzok and Page calling it a certain term; I’m just saying off-site meetings.

    The FBI’s top agent on the Trump-Russia investigation sent a text message last year that one top Republican senator says suggests he saw no evidence of Trump campaign collusion. The text message, which was sent by Peter Strzok, is “jaw-dropping,” Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said in a radio interview on Tuesday. In an interview with WISN-Milwaukee radio host Jay Weber, Johnson read aloud a May 19, 2017 text that Strzok sent to Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer and his mistress. Strzok wrote: “You and I both know the odds...

    Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin is anything but a bomb thrower. So it’s striking that, on Tucker Carlson’s show this evening, Johnson—speaking of the actions of former FBI director James Comey and Obama AG Loretta Lynch—said that there was “deep-seated corruption at the highest levels of the FBI.” In support of his allegation of deep-seated corruption, Johnson, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, cited: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Now we know that not only did Hillary Clinton show intent in her handling of classified materials routed through her private server, but that former FBI Director James Comey and his team showed intent in letting her get away with it to the detriment of American national security. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, in a Thursday letter to current FBI Director Christopher Wray, reveals how edits to Comey’s exoneration memo went beyond changing “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” but edited out content that shows the FBI knew Hillary was intentionally in violation of the Espionage...

    Sen. Ron Johnson said Thursday that he does not support investigating accusations against President Trump for sexual assault because the voters have already cast their ballots. “Trump’s problems were vetted during the campaign,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said on CNN. “The American people elected President Trump.” The senator said that if a new accusation were made during Mr. Trump’s presidency, then Congress should investigate that claim, but the senator said the voters have made their judgment with these allegations out in the public. Four women have come forward in recent days to retell their stories of sexual misconduct regarding Mr....

    Congressional Republicans say they reached agreement on a final tax bill that will provide a new 20-percent deduction for pass-through income from farms and small businesses. The agreement, which the House and Senate are expected to take up early next week, also calls for doubling the estate tax exemption and will include key expensing provisions that farm groups sought to preserve and expand, lawmakers said. They said the agreement also would allow deduction of state and local taxes, including income and property taxes, up to $10,000, a concession to lawmakers in high-tax states that could also benefit farmers.

    FINAL UPDATE - The votes are in, and the ayes have it.  After a marathon evening of debating and considering amendments, the US Senate has approved the GOP's tax reform bill, which would simplify the tax code and cut taxes for the vast majority of American households, small businesses and corporations.  Every Republican voted yes, except for Tennessee's Bob Corker.  Democrats uniformly voted no.  This is a big legislative victory for the GOP, which overcame a great deal of ferocious opposition -- much of it rooted in misinformation -- to pass the legislation.  Up next, a conference committee with the...
