  • Nadler: Mueller Doesn't Need to Comply With That DOJ Letter

    "I hope and expect this will be the only time I will speak to you in this manner," former special counsel Robert Mueller said in May as he gave what he thought would be his last public statement on his Russian collusion investigation. Yet, here he is, a day before his congressional testimony. Mueller will comply with subpoenas to appear before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on Wednesday. But, he's getting mixed messages from the White House and Congress. On Monday night, the Department of Justice sent the witness a letter instructing him to limit his testimony to matters...

    Letter at link. The Department of Justice on Wednesday sent a letter to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The letter providing Mueller with guidance for the scope of his testimony about the Russia investigation before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees scheduled for later this week, Fox News reported. Mueller previously said that he had no interest in testifying before Congress, that his full report was his testimony and that "any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report." "It contains findings and analysis, and the reasons for the decisions were made. We chose those words carefully, and...

    Video at link. President Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said he doesn’t expect former special counsel Robert Mueller to stray from his Russia report during Wednesday's congressional testimony, adding that anything new would be "highly questionable." “I can’t imagine he’s going to say anything that we don’t know,” Giuliani said during an interview that aired Monday. “If he does, it would be highly questionable — how come you’re saying it now and you didn’t say it in the report.” “And number two: It would be totally unethical,” Giuliani added. “If a prosecutor doesn’t bring a case, then the prosecutor’s got...

    Video at link. ( - Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, on Sunday objected to President Trump's latest tweet about four freshmen congresswomen. Cummings called them "some of the most brilliant young people that I have met." On Sunday morning, President Trump tweeted: I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation! "I take issue with that," Cummings...
  • House Progressive Caucus leader: Pelosi comments about AOC, others weren't helpful

    Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., the co-chair of the House Progressive Caucus, suggested Friday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., hurt the progressive cause when she downplayed the influence of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and other freshman lawmakers. Pelosi told The New York Times last week that Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., "have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.” “I don’t think those comments were helpful to a broader picture of how we build progressive power...

    The Hill ^ | July 11, 2019 | Morgan Chalfant, Olivia Beavers
    Drama is building ahead of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s much-anticipated testimony on Capitol Hill. Democrats are working to solidify their strategy to effectively question Mueller in the limited time they have. Democrats say their plans are still in flux and that they’re still negotiating with Mueller and his team over the logistics of the appearance. As of Thursday, Mueller’s testimony was set to be capped at roughly two hours per committee. Under the current agreement, all 22 members of the Intelligence panel will get a question, as will 22 members of the 41-person Judiciary Committee. Those questions will be...

    Full title: Pelosi responds to AOC slam, says caucus has her back for condemning chief of staff’s ‘offensive’ tweetHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi stood her ground Thursday in response to New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claiming the speaker has been disrespectful to several minority lawmakers, saying she has the backing of her caucus and defending her handling of the rabble-rousing freshman 'squad' that Ocasio-Cortez leads. Notably, Pelosi all but confirmed that a warning she delivered to rank-and-file lawmakers a day earlier about using social media for attacks on fellow Democrats was prompted by Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff. Asked about her...

    House Judiciary Committee Democrats announced Tuesday that they plan to authorize subpoenas later this week for a dozen individuals connected to President Trump as part of the panel’s escalating probe into obstruction of justice, public corruption and other alleged abuses by the president. The list of targets includes Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner as well as former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his old deputy Rod Rosenstein. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said Tuesday that the panel is moving forward with “efforts to request information from critical witnesses as part of our ongoing investigation into obstruction, corruption, and abuse of power...

    The House Democrats’ lawsuit demanding the government turn over President Trump’s tax returns has been assigned to a judge Mr. Trump appointed to the district court in Washington, D.C. Judge Trevor N. McFadden will get first crack at the case, which could set the standard for how far Congress’s investigative powers extend, and whether the administration has the ability to resist some requests. Democrats say the Treasury Department is defying a legal subpoena and a request under the tax law, which gives the Ways and Means Committee chairman the right to demand to see any tax return.

    Progressive members from safe blue districts, egged on by celebrities, pundits, and academic coastal elites are ratcheting up the pressure to impeach President Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may cave to their demands but not because she is threatened with being ousted. The naive liberals in her caucus may have visions of pushing Pelosi even further to the left, especially on impeachment, but the speaker knows they can’t get rid of her. Unlike former Republican House Speaker John Boehner, who resigned the speakership under pressure from his right flank, Pelosi has no such worries. She saw what happened to Boehner...

    Full title: Hans von Spakovsky: House Dem zealots ignore facts to wrongly cite Trump Cabinet members for contemptA House committee vote Wednesday holding the attorney general and commerce secretary in contempt for failing to turn over confidential documents dealing with a lawsuit involving the U.S. census was political gamesmanship of the worst kind by Democrats. In a 24-15 vote, all Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee voted to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of Congress for failing to respond to the committee’s subpoena.

    The acting Homeland Security secretary gave lawmakers a glimpse Tuesday into just how many asylum seekers skip their hearings after being released into the United States -- telling a Senate panel that a recent program found 90 percent miss their court dates. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan how many asylum seekers coming across the southern border show up for their hearings. “It depends on demographic, the court, but we see too many cases where people are not showing up,” he said, telling Graham that DHS recently conducted a pilot program with family units....

Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Mark Meadows (R-NC), the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Government Relations, on Friday sent a letter to Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) slamming him for failing to hold Michael Cohen accountable for lying to Congress. Friday marked 100 days since Cummings said he'd hold Cohen accountable. And, not surprisingly, nothing has taken place. "You waited to review Cohen's testimony before the House Permanent Selection Committee on Intelligence (HSPCI) to determine...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., continued attacking Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Thursday, claiming that it was "un-American" for the agency to detain immigrants suspected of violating the law. "It’s un-American to criminalize immigrants for wanting to come to this country for a better life. This is why ICE to be defunded," she tweeted. She was responding to a report that ICE requested additional space for housing detainees in her home state of Minnesota. According to MPR News, Shelbourne County proposed meeting ICE's request by expanding its jail so that it could house 500 immigrant detainees. About three-fourths of ICE...

    With chants of “Yes we can” raining from the rafters, House Democrats on Tuesday powered through legislation to cancel deportations and grant future citizenship rights to millions of people, in a vote that nodded more toward 2020 politics than to substantive policymaking. The 237-187 vote was momentous, marking the first major legalization to pass the House in nearly a decade, and underscoring the ground Democrats feel they have gained on an issue both sides expect to be at the center of the presidential election. With President Trump calling for action to solve crisis at the border, Democrats countered by casting...

    You'd think they'd be all over this like tabloid papparazzi. Wild and prurient news always sells papers and draws viewer eyeballs, and the scattered reports about how America's first Muslim congresswoman, Rep. Ilhan Omar, reportedly married her own brother in a bid to bring him into the country ahead of the others trying to get in, is quite a doozy. The press certainly got excited about the Stormy Daniels controversy for such a reason, but why the absence of interest in Omar's kinky weird love life. Now the fearless Michelle Malkin has taken up the case, wanting to know why...

    Anti-Semitic Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who blames the current crisis in Venezuela on the United States, wants a "Green New Deal" style overhaul of U.S. foreign policy. Omar argues she is best suited to lead the charge for major foreign policy changes because she has "the perspective of a foreigner." From the Star Tribune : The Somali-born Minnesota Democrat, saying she brings “the perspective of a foreigner” to her new role, believes that American foreign policy needs to be changed in fundamental ways. “When I think about foreign policy, we need something equivalent to the Green New Deal,” Omar...

    A boxing legend who referred to Caucasians as “white devils” and “crackers” along with the leader of a racist anti-Semitic black cult will be honored by the U.S. government if resolutions pending in Congress are enacted by federal lawmakers. The nearly identical measures, recently introduced in the House and Senate, aim to celebrate the “history and contributions of Muslims of the United States” and include controversial candidates that are clearly undeserving of the distinction. Among them are two key figures in the Nation of Islam, a political and religious movement well known for its racially divisive rhetoric. The group’s doctrine...

    Last night, President Trump gave Attorney General Bill Barr the authority to declassify information and documents related to the FBI's spying during the 2016 presidential election. He's asked for a number of government agencies to cooperate with Barr's inquiry, including the State Department, Treasury, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security, CIA and the Director of National Intelligence.

But calls to lock them up are unjustified and uncalled for. What would jailing two Cabinet members be based on?
