Pelosi Statement on Progress of House Investigations

Westlake Legal Group I9iGwjRE3zr6YYDRE_IKZ6pDwWhejLBRUQ7wgnm5Vqo Pelosi Statement on Progress of House Investigations r/politics

Here is her statement. There’s a lot in here.

When we take the oath of office, we solemnly vow ‘to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.’ The Mueller report states unequivocally that Russia interfered in the 2016 election ‘in sweeping and systematic fashion.’ And the Intelligence Community informs us that Russia is working 24/7 to undermine our elections. This assault on our elections is a serious national security matter which the President chooses to ignore.

“The Mueller report and his testimony last week confirmed that the President’s campaign welcomed Russian interference in the election, and laid out ten instances of the President’s obstruction of justice. The President’s more recent attempts to prevent us from finding the facts is further evidence of obstruction of justice.

“To protect our democracy and our Constitution, Democrats in the Congress continue to legislate, investigate and litigate.

Litigation:

Last week, Jerry Nadler, Chair of Judiciary, took a significant step when he filed a petition to obtain the grand jury testimony underlying the Mueller report, for the House to ‘have access to all the relevant facts and consider whether to exercise its full Article I powers, including a constitutional power of the utmost gravity — approval of articles of impeachment.’

Elijah Cummings, Chair of Oversight and Reform, is winning in court in the Mazars case, seeking the President’s financial statements and reports prepared by his accountant to determine financial conflicts, violations of the Emoluments Clause, and the truthfulness of representations contained in the President’s statutorily required financial disclosure forms; Maxine Waters, Chair of Financial Services and Adam Schiff, Chair of Intelligence are winning in court in the Deutsche Bank case, seeking the President’s bank account records to assist with the Committees’ investigation of unsafe banking practices, including money laundering, illicit transactions and foreign investments;

Richie Neal, Chair of Ways and Means, is pursuing the President’s tax returns to assist with the ongoing investigation of the IRS’s presidential tax audit program; Eliot Engel, Chair of Foreign Affairs, on another front, is investigating the Russia connection with hearings seeking the facts from the Trump-Putin meetings; In addition, last week, the House voted to reiterate its oversight authority, and ratified and affirmed the subpoenas already issued by the committees and any subpoenas to come. Responding to the subpoenas gives the President an opportunity to provide information that could exonerate him. If he has nothing to hide, he should cooperate with the subpoenas.

Investigation:

Our litigation has been strengthened by the months of work from our six committees which are engaged in the investigations. 54 percent of House Democrats serve on these committees engaged in hearings and investigations, and I am very proud of their work.

Legislation:

We have sent the Securing America’s Federal Elections Act to the Senate. However, Mitch McConnell refuses to take up this legislation or any other legislation to protect our democracy. Why do the President and the Republican Leader in the Senate choose to protect Russia rather than to protect the integrity of our elections? We will continue to lead a drumbeat across the country demanding the GOP Senate act.

“The assault on our elections and our Constitution is a grave national security issue. We owe it to our Founders to sustain our system of checks and balances and our democracy. We owe it to our heroic men and women in uniform who risk their lives for freedom to defend our democracy at home. We owe it to our children to ensure that no present or future president can dishonor the oath of office without being held accountable.

“In America, no one is above the law. The President will be held accountable.”

Westlake Legal Group G_oh7Wp1o3d2erS6nswGrVGfyF9N1Uf__kEHhv0fm2c I'm PolitiFact's new staff writer and I report on online misinformation and fact-checking efforts to combat it. AMA r/politics

At PolitiFact we’re gearing up for (heck we’re in the middle of) a marathon election season. We’ve been fact-checking Democratic debates this week, as well as President Donald Trump’s rally last night.

Recent headlines hearken back to a time, not so long ago, when we learned of election meddling plus an entire misinformation campaign that went along with it. PolitiFact decided it was time to get out in front of the fake, and cover misinformation as an area of reporting. That’s where Daniel Funke comes in! He’s PolitiFact’s new staff writer covering online misinformation. Recently he’s looked into why, fifty years after Apollo 11, moon landing hoaxes still thrive online. He has also found the origins of the “Storm Area 51” trend. Daniel is here to answer your questions on online misinformation, and the ins and outs of fact-checking politics.

Donald Trump’s Approval Rating Is Lower Than All Four Members Of The Squad

Westlake Legal Group gYkpjrO4ymT_7rGPDxrAXdkW8tkT_Ww8x4FrFI6PVg4 Donald Trump's Approval Rating Is Lower Than All Four Members Of The Squad r/politics

US. President Donald Trump has a lower approval rating than all four of The Squad, a group of progressive, Democratic congresswomen of color he told to “go back” to their ancestral homelands in a tweet, according to a new The Economist/YouGov poll.

Trump’s net approval rating, excluding don’t knows, was -11. By comparison, The Squad—which includes Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley—who also all had negative approval ratings, were significantly better.

New York’s Ocasio-Cortez’s was -3, Minnesota’s Omar was -6, Michigan’s Tlaib was -3, and Massachusetts’ Pressley was -3. The four women had larger “don’t know” answers than Trump, who has far greater name recognition among the wider American public.

The poll of 1,500 adult American citizens was conducted between July 21 and 23, several days after Trump’s controversial tweet targeting the freshwomen congressmembers, who are prominent campaigners against his administration, which they argue is racist.

They have focused recently on the plight of undocumented migrants held in detention centers at the southern border, where there are allegations of human rights abuses, sexual assault, and the maltreatment of young children against border agents and officials.

Ocasio-Cortez, who has visited the facilities, characterized them as concentration camps, and reported back that some detainees were told to drink from the toilet if they were thirsty because a water tap was broken.

Trump’s infamous “go back” tweet targeted the ethnic backgrounds of The Squad, all of whom are American citizens and three of whom were born in the U.S. Omar arrived in America as a child refugee in the early 1990s after fleeing the war in Somalia.

He wrote on Twitter that they “originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe…Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

The YouGov poll also shows that The Squad has better approval ratings than Trump among independents, though the gap between them is narrower. Trump’s net approval rating with independents is -12. Ocasio-Cortez’s is -7, Omar’s is -11, Tlaib’s is -6, and Pressley’s is -6.
