You can’t make this up. Adam Schiff introduced a bill making it illegal to accept foreign dirt in an election. But when Russians called to offer Schiff dirt on @realDonaldTrump, he said: “Please, go ahead.” The hypocrisy is insane.
When someone called with info relevant to our investigation - not a campaign - we called the FBI. Immediately. Donald Trump, Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner did not. But I do have a question for you: When is the GOP going to be a party again, instead of the cult of Trump?
Rep. Adam Schiff on Trump delaying deportation raids: "They could cure this problem today, but they don't want to because frankly the cruelty is part of their policy." Via CNN
All children need beds and roofs over their heads. They need toothpaste and soap. They need doctors if they’re sick. They need to be cared for. This cannot continue.
Schiff introduces bill to strengthen law barring campaigns from accepting foreign dirt after Trump interview http://hill.cm/QA22DnR
Seeking “dirt” on your opponent from a foreign power is unethical, unpatriotic, and just plain wrong. It’s also illegal. That used to be enough to stop politicians from doing it. And then came Trump. That’s why my new bill makes it clear: Ignorance is no longer an excuse.
Most Americans — and sadly too many Members of Congress — still haven’t read the Mueller Report. Guess what? It contains plenty of evidence of collusion and obstruction. Here’s a handy guide to Part I. See for yourself.
Trump orders EPA to eliminate at least a third of its regulatory and scientific advisory committees. http://benvgo.com/CLAvWcY
The Trump Administration appointed a former coal lobbyist to run the EPA. They deny the science of climate change and key facts about public health. Now they’re removing the scientific advisors who know the most about climate. What could go wrong?
.@RepAdamSchiff says there’s been a focus to prevent Russian meddling in U.S. elections and that establishing a deterrent is important. But he says efforts to establish a deterrent is “dramatically undercut” when the president told Putin he thinks Russian interference is a hoax.
Our intelligence agencies take the Russian threat very seriously, and are focused on deterring future interference. If only the commander in chief were not busy undermining those efforts. Instead, he seems to welcome it.
Federal watchdog agency recommends removal of Kellyanne Conway from federal office for violating the Hatch Act https://wapo.st/2XLouQm
Kellyanne Conway’s response to multiple Hatch Act violations: “Blah, blah, blah.” That about sums up the Trump Administration’s attitude to Rule of Law. Her boss doesn’t care about ethics, so why should she? The rot truly starts at the top.
GOP leader concedes tax cuts may not pay for themselves as 2019 deficit grows https://wapo.st/2R4njJ2
An architect of the GOP tax bill has admitted that their enormous giveaway to the wealthy and corporations will not, in fact, pay for itself. Instead, the deficit is up 39% this year. It’s “hard to know,” he said. It’s not hard to know. Just hard to be honest about it.
McConnell’s Senate has been focused on confirming Trump’s personnel and judges. But it’s going to get back to good old-fashioned legislating any day now. The GOP swears it. https://politi.co/2R3UInb
The House has passed 415 bills to: Protect healthcare and pre-existing conditions Enhance gun safety Preserve public lands Renew net neutrality Help our veterans Defend voting rights Stop corruption Safeguard our environment And much more. Senators, take your pick.
Schiff: "But on those fundamental questions you've been asking and we have been asking: What happened to the counterintelligence investigation? What were the findings from that investigation? We still can't get an answer."
Here are some of the serious questions I have from Mueller's report: What happened to the counterintelligence probe that Comey announced? Is it still ongoing? What were its findings? We are fighting to find out, and take steps to protect the country from foreign influence.
Trump is "making up for" not serving in Vietnam with increased defense funding, he says https://wapo.st/2Im0f4H
Spending taxpayer dollars on defense is not akin to serving your country in the military. Nor is insulting gold star families Banning transgender service members Or diverting military resources to the border for a stunt. Service to country requires more than service to self.
As the son of immigrants, I was beyond honored to deliver the rebuttal on the House floor as we debated HR6, and even prouder to cast my vote as we passed the #DreamAndPromiseAct tonight!
Proud to cast my vote alongside @JoeNeguse to pass the Dream and Promise Act and give millions of people who have lived and worked here for decades a path to citizenship. America was built by immigrants, and they make our country stronger.
"A president calling for an economic boycott of one of the largest telecommunications companies because he doesn't like their news network ... is completely norm-shattering," says @Hadas_Gold, as President Trump suggests a boycott of AT&T for carrying CNN. http://cnn.it/2QHxoLZ
Trump calls for a boycott of CNN’s parent company, after trying to block their merger. He wanted to raise postal rates on Amazon because Bezos owns the Post It's one thing to complain about the press. Using state power to censor them is another. In fact, it’s unconstitutional.
ACA linked to reduced racial disparities, earlier diagnosis and treatment in cancer care https://wapo.st/2HQqe55
New research shows that fewer Americans, especially women and people of color, are dying of cancer because of expanded health coverage through the ACA. Healthcare saves lives. That’s why we’re fighting so hard to make sure every American has access to quality care.
Let us finish the job we started. Let us reclaim our country. Let us go forth again into every state, every precinct, every household, every heart, and deliver such a convincing end to Trump and Trumpism that we will never be plagued by it or anything like it ever again #CADem19
Schiff demands intelligence chiefs’ help with policing Barr’s review of Russia probe https://wapo.st/2EK8q9O
“If there is information that can be shared with the American people without jeopardizing intelligence sources and methods, that decision should be made,” Barr said. You mean like the redacted sections of the Mueller Report?
BREAKING: A conservative House lawmaker derailed a massive $19B disaster aid package, becoming the third Republican to delay passage of the measure https://www.politico.com/story/2019/05/30/third-house-republican-blocks-massive-disaster-aid-package-1348433 …
House Republican members have blocked a bipartisan, much-needed disaster relief bill. Not once. Not twice. But three times. Americans around the country are devastated by flooding and tornadoes. Their response: too bad for them.
McConnell says he would help President Trump fill a Supreme Court vacancy in 2020 — a reversal from 2016 https://wapo.st/2I7A55r
Mitch McConnell refused to bring Merrick Garland’s nomination to a vote before the election because he insisted “the American people... have a voice.” Apparently, when Donald Trump is President, the American people no longer need to be heard. It’s called the hypocrisy rule.
