    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) on Friday introduced a resolution that would require the committees overseeing the impeachment inquiry to allow outside members of the House to have access to the proceedings, depositions and transcribed interviews. Its introduction comes after a group of House conservatives attempted to gain access to a closed-door impeachment hearing on Wednesday. The conservative lawmakers were rebuffed because they did not sit on the House Intelligence Committee, House Foreign Affairs Committee or the House Oversight and Reform Committee. "The stakes are too high for Chairman [Adam] Schiff [D-Calif.] and Speaker...

    Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs spoke with House Republican whip Steve Scalise tonight and confronted him on why he (and so many other Republicans) voted with the Democrats to rebuke President Donald Trump‘s Syria withdrawal decision. Scalise was at the White House meeting this afternoon that top Democrats left after what they described as a “meltdown” from President Donald Trump. Scalise said Trump laid out his plan to contain ISIS terrorists “because we don’t want them to run loose.” Dobbs teed off about how Republicans need to do more to back up the president, particularly on the issue of “international police...

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said House Intel Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) wants to impeach President Donald Trump behind closed doors in an interview Monday with FOX Business Network's Maria Bartiromo on 'Mornings With Maria.' "Well, this is part of Adam Schiff's -- it's like a kangaroo court he set up, but they've got this shroud of secrecy, where they want to drip out things that they want to allude to, they make false accusations to try to," Scalise said. "And so, why Adam Schiff continues to hide in secret the Volker testimony, he was already starting to...

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said it’s unclear whether lawmakers can reach a bipartisan deal on gun legislation following a meeting with fellow Republican leaders at the White House on Tuesday. The Louisiana Republican said while "good faith negotiations and conversations" are taking place between parties and chambers, he doesn’t feel the bills Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has advocated for the Senate to take up would prevent future instances of mass violence. Scalise said Tuesday’s talks centered around both potential new measures aimed at preventing future shootings and improving the implementation of current laws. "We talked about some of...

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise rebuked Democratic Texas Rep. Joaquin Castro on Tuesday for tweeting out a list of Trump donors and their employers in the San Antonio area. “People should not be personally targeted for their political views. Period. This isn’t a game. It’s dangerous, and lives are at stake. I know this firsthand,” Scalise wrote on Twitter. Scalise was shot in the 2017 attempted mass assassination of Republican congressmen and nearly died. Castro’s tweet listed the names and employers of 44 San Antonio residents, including 11 retirees, who donated the federal maximum of $2,700 to President Donald Trump’s...
  • Democrats' opposition research got exposed — this time, not by the Russians

    When the Russians hacked the Democratic National Committee in summer 2016, one of the crown jewels obtained by Vladimir Putin’s team was the party’s opposition research files on then-GOP candidate Donald Trump. It was quite a blow to the DNC, because political parties usually guard their research zealously, hoping to use it with the news media and political commercials to help ding their political rivals without leaving fingerprints. But the Democratic Party committee that helps elects candidates to U.S. House seats has exposed scores of its own opposition research files on GOP candidates, past and present, on the internet. They...

    WASHINGTON -- House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) called on lawmakers and activists who argue that fossil fuels are "immoral" to "stop using them today." Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, proposed a bill in 2017 that would outlaw the sale of gasoline-powered vehicles within the U.S. beginning in 2035. Members of Congress such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) have called for the end of fossil fuel production in America. Scalise was asked if he would support banning the sale of gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles in the U.S. by a certain date. "No, and in fact, I...

    House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s (D-N.Y.) decision not to allow him to testify during a hearing on gun violence Wednesday may have helped amplify his message on the subject. Scalise — who sustained life-threatening injuries after being shot during practice for the congressional baseball game in 2017 — alleged by not allowing him to testify, Nadler “broke from tradition” by denying “a member who had a relevant testimony to give.” But the Louisiana Republican said the media attention gained from the incident provided him with a wider platform to discuss his view....

    House Democrats blocked Republican Whip Steve Scalise from testifying at a hearing on "gun violence" this week despite being a victim of a shooting. The reason? He doesn't support new gun control measures Democrats are hoping to pass with their new majority. "It was pretty bizarre. Historically when Republicans were in charge, even when Democrats were in charge prior to this more radical leftist majority, if a member of Congress wanted to testify on a committee, they always provided a venue for that to happen," Scalise said. "In this case they were holding a hearing in the Judiciary on reducing...

    Chaos briefly broke out on the floor of the House Thursday as Republicans accused Democrats of trying to pull a fast one with a hasty vote to end the partial shutdown. The drama began in the afternoon when the Democratic-controlled House held a voice vote on an interim spending bill to re-open the government through February 28. Customarily, after a voice vote is held, the opposition party will demand a recorded roll call vote. But when no one was heard, North Carolina Rep. G.K. Butterfield, who was presiding over the House, did not hold a roll call vote and instead...

    Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) on Monday night said that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) "shouldn't condone" her supporters who brought up the 2017 shooting that seriously injured the minority whip in order to berate him online. "She oughta own up and just say, 'Look this isn’t something that I condone,'" Scalise said on Fox News's "Hannity." "She doesn’t … own this herself directly, but she shouldn’t condone it either." Scalise and Ocasio-Cortez briefly sparred on Twitter over the weekend over the freshman New York lawmaker's call for a 70 percent tax rate on Americans making more than $10 million. Scalise ended...

    On Twitter last night, a battle emerged between Republican Congressman Steve Scalise and supporters of socialist Democratic Rep. Ocasio-Cortez. [The story is here.] Ocasio-Cortez wants to raise tax rates to 70 percent, to redistribute wealth from those who create and earn it to those who do not. She wants to take money out of the hands of private businesses who are responsible for earning and managing it and place it in the hands of the government. She says it’s “for the people” but it’s the government, not “the people”, who will decide what to do with it. It’s mob warfare...

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) revealed a shocking detail the establishment media covered up about James Hodgkinson, the left-winger who attempted a mass murder at a Republican congressional baseball practice: according to Paul, the man who almost killed Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and wounded four others was shouting, “This is for health care!” During an appearance this week on Fox & Friends, Paul said: I was there at the ballfield when Steven Scalise almost died from a very, very angry, violent man who was incited, really, by rhetoric on the left. And this hasn’t been reported enough: When he came on...

    This summer, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters called on her supporters to harass cabinet officials. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that you “cannot be civil” with members of the Republican Party. And Wednesday, videotape was released of former Attorney General Eric Holder telling a Democratic audience at a campaign rally on Sunday that they should “kick” Republicans when they perceive them as “going low.” Despite the continued reports of politically motivated threats or violence, Democratic Party leaders have worked to keep this anger burning and incite even more harassment and violence. Beginning with my own near-death experience...

    After Carlos Bayon was arrested on a charge of menacing U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise in a voicemail message, authorities deemed the threat "credible" and described evidence seized at the suspect's upstate New York home as "very concerning." The U.S. attorney did not detail the evidence, but a new affidavit filed in federal court in Buffalo by the Capitol Police itemizes it. No guns were found in the search, yet special agent Lawrence Anyaso says investigators discovered: 150 rounds of 7.62-millimeter rifle ammunition 50 rounds of shotgun ammunition A 2004 receipt for an SKS assault rifle A 1987 receipt for a...

    A man was arrested Thursday for allegedly leaving threatening voicemails for two members of Congress, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.). Sixty-three-year-old Carlos Bayon, who resides in New York, is charged with making threats across state lines. Scalise, the No. 3 Republican in the House, was shot during the GOP's congressional baseball practice last year and sustained near-fatal injuries. “Whip Scalise is grateful to law enforcement for their actions. He will never forget how their heroism saved his life and those of his colleagues last year," Scalise spokeswoman Lauren Fine told The Hill in a statement. "As he has...
