House GOPers Ask For Proof That Feb Cohen Hearing Won’t Be ‘Media Stunt’

Two Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are urging Michael Cohen’s attorney to prove that his client’s upcoming February 7 public testimony before the committee won’t just be a “media stunt.” In a Tuesday letter, House Freedom Caucus Members Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Mark Meadows (R-NC) asked Guy Petrillo for firm answers on the scope of Cohen’s testimony, claiming that Cohen’s public relations representative in the probe, Lanny Davis, cautioned that much of what Cohen can say will be re...

Republican Arizona lawmaker revives doomed "porn tax" to fund Trump's doomed border-wall

Anti-porn troll Chris Sevier (previously) has built his career by convincing grandstanding Republican state lawmakers to introduce doomed, unconstitutional porn-tax laws that would require in-state ISPs to implement default-on censorship of "adult sites" (or, more specifically, "sites appearing an an arbitrary, unaccountable secret blacklist of allegedly adult material") and then charge $20/subscriber to turn off the filters. This is unconstitutional and stupid, which makes it perfect for p...

Republicans: Cohen lawyer says key topics off-limits for congressional hearing

Michael Cohen's congressional testimony next month will exclude any topic that's "under investigation," his lawyer told congressional Republicans according to a GOP description of their conversation with Cohen's lawyer, which could mean Cohen won't discuss lying to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project or the payments made to women during the campaign for their silence.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina judge was scheduled to hear arguments Tuesday into declaring the Republican in the country’s last undecided congressional race the winner despite an investigation into whether his lead was boosted by illegal vote-collection tactics.

‘Trump Slump’: Gun Sales Down In Shifting Political Climate

When gunmakers and dealers gather this week in Las Vegas for the industry’s largest annual conference, they will be grappling with slumping sales and a shift in politics that many didn’t envision two years ago when gun-friendly Donald Trump and a GOP-controlled Congress took office. Some of the top priorities for the industry — expanding the reach of concealed carry permits and easing restrictions on so-called “silencers” — remain in limbo, and prospects for expanding gun rights are nil for t...

Voting Rights: Will Iowa Be The Next State To Let Felons Vote?

Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds is looking to roll back the state’s ban on felon voting, she announced this week. Iowa is one of three states with constitutions that permanently ban convicted felons from voting unless the governor choses to restore the felon’s franchise. Reynolds proposed in her Condition of the State speech a constitutional amendment, which would need to go through the legislature, to change the current system, though the details of the proposal are still unclear.

GOP Lawmaker: ‘This Is An Idiotic Shutdown’

Republican lawmaker Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) called the 31-day partial government shutdown “idiotic” in a Sunday CNN interview, calling on his colleagues in Congress “to be adults” and negotiate a compromise. “This is an idiotic shutdown,” Kinzinger said. “The American people deserve far better from those of us that are elected to represent 750,000 people—to be adults, to be grownups, to understand that we’re not going to get our way.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made perfect use of this 20-year-old video game meme

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants the super-rich to pay a heavier share of taxes. The newly elected Congresswoman's proposal that any earnings higher than $10 million carry a 70 percent tax rate has been widely popular. That's true even among voters who might be more inclined to put on a MAGA hat; a recent Hill-HarrisX poll showed that some 45 percent of GOP voters agree.
