Latest Scoops

Emmet Flood’s presence and statement at the outset of both meetings today was completely inappropriate, and I told him so. It only underscores what Rudy Giuliani said: the President’s legal team expects to improperly obtain and use such information for their defense.
Nothing we heard today has changed our view that there is no evidence to support any allegation that the FBI or any intelligence agency placed a “spy” in the Trump Campaign, or otherwise failed to follow appropriate procedures and protocols. Our statement:
False statements about wiretaps at Trump Tower.

False statements about unmasking.

False statesments about a political spy in the Trump campaign.

False statements about the Mueller investigation that has indicted the President’s top staff.

It’s not spy-gate, only lie-gate.
There’s a reason why this is the most scandal-plagued Administration in modern history. When you combine an unethical President with one-party rule, it is an invitation to ruin. Power corrupts, and Trump’s absolute power has corrupted all too absolutely.
The White House has directed the DOJ and FBI to hold a partisan briefing on infomation the President wants given to his allies in Congress. No Democrats allowed.

This is another serious abuse of power. There’s a bipartisan mechanism called the Gang of 8. They need to use it.
Giuliani removes all doubt – the White House effort to force DOJ to give investigatory materials to Congress is really about the defense team getting their hands on them. If the President is charged with a crime, he has a right to see the evidence. Not before.https://t.co/HfzzdZ894d
Trump’s claim of an embedded “spy” is nonsense. His “demand” DOJ investigate something they know to be untrue is an abuse of power, and an effort to distract from his growing legal problems. Never mind that DOJ has warned that lives and alliances are at risk. He doesn’t care.https://t.co/c1itPmiHnv
Horrified by the shooting in Santa Fe that took the lives of 9 students and a teacher. Their families, hundreds of students and teachers who witnessed this tragedy will never be the same.

We must act to keep our schools and our children safe. Words of condolence are not enough.
Clearly, we have been taking the Science Committee’s understanding of climate change for granite. And while I appreciate the sediment, maybe we should leave climate science to the professionals.https://t.co/M4IDy4pENJ
When Mueller was appointed, Democrats and Republicans promised to defend his independence.

Now, one year in, Republicans in the House are working desperately to discredit Mueller, DOJ, and FBI.

We must let him do his work. The rule of law depends on it.
