    (CNSNews.com) -- Democratic Congress members reintroduced the Ammunition Background Check Act on Wednesday, legislation that would require people to undergo an instant, universal background check through the federal NICS databaseeverytime they purchase gun ammunition. The lead sponsors of the bill are Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.). The proposal is known as 'Jaime's Law," in honor of Jaime Guttenberg, one of the 17 victims of the shooting at the Marjory Stonemen Douglas High School in February 2018. "Ammunition sales should be subject to the same legal requirements that should govern firearm sales: universal background checks," said...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday said it will not allow Fox News to host any of its candidates’ political debates through 2020, citing a report this week about the conservative channel’s ties to U.S. President Donald Trump. “Recent reporting in the New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and Fox News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates,” DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement provided to Reuters. “Therefore, Fox News will not serve as...

    The spectacle in North Carolina's 9th District makes 2018 feel like the election that will never end. And, the looming presidential primaries are rapidly overshadowing congressional politics. But the 2020 fight for the House is already underway, with both the DCCC and NRCC working behind the scenes to identify the most ideal recruits and releasing ambitious lists of targeted districts to declare they are "on offense." Republicans will need to gain 18 seats to win back the majority (or 19 depending on the outcome of a new election in NC-09), and have no shortage of good-looking targets, at least on...

    Broward County, FL election head Brenda Snipes is back in the news, as a former candidate who ran against Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the 2016 Democratic primary wondered aloud in a tweet why the Department of Justice never prosecuted her for illegally destroying paper ballots from the race. Tim Canova got only 43% of the vote in that primary, but he challenged the results in court. While the case was being decided, Canova requested that Broward County hand over the thousands of paper ballots that had been cast. When Brenda Snipes' office refused, he sued - only to find out...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) declared she would "most definitely" lead a legal challenge if President Trump decides to bypass Congress and declare a national emergency to get money he's requested for a border wall. Wasserman Schultz leads the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies; Trump would be dipping into military construction funds if he went the emergency route. "I don't like to take things off the table. It's that alternative. It's national emergency, it's other things and, you know, there have been plenty national emergencies called," Trump told CBS in an interview aired Sunday....

    Democrats will hold at least a dozen presidential primary debates starting in June 2019 and running through April 2020, with party Chairman Tom Perez promising rules that will give everyone in a potentially large field a fair shot at voters’ attention. Making public his first in a series of decisions over the 2020 debate calendar, Perez said Thursday that the national party will sponsor six debates in 2019 and six more in 2020. That could be extended if the nomination process drags deep into the spring. Exact dates, locations, media partners and qualifying thresholds will be announced in early 2019....

    **SNIP** “[I]n the July 2018 plea agreement,” writes Gingrich, “the DOJ stated that approximately 40 witnesses were interviewed throughout the duration of the investigation. Upon further examination, this number seems substantially inadequate for an investigation potentially involving so many individuals.” If investigators had simply interviewed all the members of Congress who Imran Awan and his crew worked for they would have had to speak with more than 40 people. As $120,000 in missing equipment is known to have been illegally written-off in just one member’s office Imran Awan was involved with (Rep. Yvette Clarke, D-N.Y.), investigators would have also clearly...

    The official report said Whisenant, 37, shot himself in the head, which means a gun would’ve been found right next to his body – unless a passerby managed to swipe it before authorities showed up. The thing is, a gun was never found. Whisenant was handling visa and passport fraud cases in Democrat Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s district in Broward County at the time of his death.

    While appearing on CNN on Monday, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., claimed that Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes followed the law in her handling of ballots. But, the Daily Caller said, a circuit court judge said the exact opposite. “Number one, [Snipes] has followed the process as Florida law prescribes,” Wasserman Schultz told CNN’s Jim Sciutto. “And there’s been absolutely nothing amiss that’s been found by Rick Scott’s own department of state election monitors who have been in her office since the spring.” “[There’s] no evidence of anything that has gone wrong. The process is simply working. The deadlines...

    Florida county officials are expected to submit their final vote tallies by 3 p.m. Thursday, so we can finally declare winners in both the Senate and gubernatorial races. State law requires that races with less than a .05 percent margin get a recount. Republicans, however, who are currently in the lead in both races, see no need for the recounts.Florida Gov. Rick Scott accused Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes and Palm Beach Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher of “trying to steal the election.” There's certainly reason to believe Snipes is operating under an ideological motive.

    Imran Awan, the former IT aide to congressional Democrats including Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, avoided jail time Tuesday. (Reuters) Imran Awan, the former IT aide to congressional Democrats whose federal bank fraud case has drawn the interest of top Republicans, avoided jail time Tuesday after the defense complained about disparaging comments made against the defendant by President Trump and others. During a hearing Tuesday in Washington, U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan sentenced Awan to three months of supervised release plus time served. Chutkan, who cited “unfounded allegations” against Awan, also did not impose a fine. Awan, who pleaded guilty...

    Tuesday was a lucky day for Imran Awan, the former IT administrator for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. A federal judge sentenced him to three months of supervised release and no fine for one count of bank fraud – sparing him any jail time. Awan could have faced much more serious charges and a long prison sentence if he had been tried and convicted on accusations that he ran a spy ring inside Congress and stole congressional computer equipment. Yet stunningly, Awan was not charged with those crimes. Instead, federal prosecutors ignored their own compelling evidence implicating him in the...

    OK, I think this is a genius move by Jeff Sessions. The supposed DOJ Awan case 'cover up' has upset many. But when you read the fine print, the plea only applies to DC (thread at link).
