    Sen. Marco Rubio warned President Trump on Sunday that it would be a bad idea to pardon Paul Manafort. During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Rubio, R-Fla., said it would be a mistake for Trump to issue a pardon for his former campaign chairman after Special Counsel Robert Mueller accused Manafort of lying about his contacts with administration officials in 2018 and at least four other details related to the investigation into Russian election meddling during the 2016 campaign. “I haven’t heard that the White House is thinking about doing it,” Rubio said. “I advise strongly against it. It...
  • Goodlatte: House Leadership Blocked Trump-Backed Immigration Reform

    12/05/2018 7:57:36 PM PST · by grey_whiskers · 37 replies ^ | Dec. 5, 2018 | Neil Munro
    The House GOP leadership is responsible for blocking a pro-American immigration reform package which was backed by President Donald Trump, a top House chairman said Tuesday. The GOP leadership let the House immigration reform die in June by allowing a critical bloc of GOP legislators to split their votes between two rival reform bills, said Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the retiring chairman of the House committee on the judiciary. “The strategy of having two options really let people have an off-ramp — they could vote for the more conservative bill and against the other, or vote for the second bill and...

    Former President Obama met with former President George H.W. Bush in Houston on Tuesday prior to a speaking engagement at Rice University, Bush's spokesman said. "The two had a very pleasant and private visit at the Bush residence, where they rekindled what was already a very warm friendship," Bush spokesman Jim McGrath wrote on Twitter. Obama was scheduled to speak at a forum at the Baker Institute at Rice University on Tuesday night. Obama and his wife, Michelle, saw Bush in April when they attended Barbara Bush's funeral in Houston. George H.W. Bush, 94, has dealt with health issues in...

    Oh, John Kasich, how many times you have betrayed your party, your state, and your country — so many that we've lost count. The most recent entry to the list is the Ohio governor's announcement that he will veto two bills that are near and dear to the hearts of conservatives who propelled him to victory in 2010 and 2014: The aptly named "heartbeat bill" and "stand your ground" legislation. Kasich told reporters outside his office Monday that he opposes both bills. If Kasich follows through with the veto threat, this will be the second time in two years he's...

    Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said it is "stunning" to see the disparate way the FBI handling the Hillary Clinton investigation and the probe into the Trump presidential campaign. Goodlatte appeared on FOX News' Sunday Morning Futures with host Maria Bartiromo. Goodlatte said he is scheduling the interview of people like former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI director James Comey, former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, Nellie Ohr, Glenn Simpson and others. Goodlatte said if they don't appear voluntarily he would subpoena them.
  • Senate Republicans Are Blocking Trump Appointments

    President Trump has hundreds of unfilled presidentially-appointed positions because Democrats have stalled the nominations process out as much as their diminished power in the post-nuclear Senate has allowed. But it is the Republican majority that has placed a total blockade on the usual safety valve for temporary appointments - the recess appointment power - by refusing to go on recess for the last two years. And with Democrats set to take the House and be in position to deny the Senate consent to recess starting January 3, there is a real possibility that President Trump will go an entire presidential...

    House Republicans who have spent the last two years arguing that there was bias in President Barack Obama’s Justice Department are preparing to subpoena two key witnesses in the final weeks of their majority — former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte, R-Va., has notified colleagues that he will subpoena Comey for a closed-door deposition Nov. 29 and Lynch for Dec. 5, according to a person familiar with the subpoenas. The person declined to be identified because the person was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The subpoenas...

    GOP senators are nudging President Donald Trump to give up hopes for a $5 billion down-payment on a border wall in 2019. “My goal is to get the [budget] bills passed” in December, said Sen. Richard Shelby, the GOP chairman of the Senate’s appropriations committee, said Nov. 15 after meeting Trump for a budget discussion. His committee has penciled in $1.6 billion for the wall in 2019, compared to the $5 billion in the draft House bill. “If it’s ‘Wall or nothing!’ they’re going to get nothing,” the top Democrat on the Senate’s appropriations bill, Sen. Patrick Leahy, said November...

    Representative Dana Rohrabacher, a Republican fixture in California who represented Orange County for 15 terms, has lost his bid for re-election. His defeat underlines the party’s setbacks in a part of the state that was long a symbol of its political dominance. The Associated Press called the race on Saturday, with Harley Rouda receiving 52 percent of the vote to Mr. Rohrabacher’s 48 percent. Mr. Rouda, 56, is a former Republican turned Democrat who became a symbol of the Democratic efforts to win back Congress this year. Mr. Rohrabacher, 71, was viewed as particularly vulnerable because he defended Russia in...

    More GOP voters associate with President Trump than they do with the Republican party itself, underscoring the degree to which the president has taken over the party's brand, according to a new poll. The Harris Poll, conducted with Harvard University’s Center for American Political Studies, found that the GOP is "Trump's party," as 46 percent of Republican registered voters associate with Trump compared to 25 percent who say they associate with GOP itself. Eighteen percent said they associate with both, and nine percent replied they associate with either. The Democratic party and GOP approval rating are the same for the...

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) said President Donald Trump’s compliment of Rep. Greg Gianforte (R-MT) for assaulting a reporter last May was “not OK.” Sasse said, “I believe the First Amendment is the beating heart of the American experiment. We need to have a president who celebrates the First Amendment and not pretends that beating up a reporter is OK. What you hear from Nebraskans who also tune out most of the rallies is that there’s a short-term, long-term thing going on and feel that the president’s rhetoric is short-term playful. I don’t think...

There are two facets, two recent researched stories, that paint a very disturbing scenario. The first facet is a reality that Senate Security Officer James Wolfe was given, and leaked, a copy of the Carter Page FISA application on March 17th, 2017. ...

    Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a crucial Republican swing vote in Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, received a playful prodding from the former governor of Alaska on Twitter. "I can see 2022 from my house," Sarah Palin tweeted on Friday afternoon, mentioning Murkowski. The tweet was widely viewed as a thinly-veiled threat to challenge Murkowski in her 2022 reelection campaign to the Senate.
