House Oversight Chair: White House Is Stonewalling All Of Our Doc Requests

The White House has not turned over a single document requested by the Democratic-controlled House Oversight Committee, Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said in a Washington Post op-ed Tuesday evening. “The problem is that the White House is engaged in an unprecedented level of stonewalling, delay and obstruction,” Cummings wrote.

Voting Rights Primer: Ross Declines To Answer Key Questions About Census Citizenship Question

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was grilled Thursday by the House Oversight Committee about his move to add a census citizenship question. Many of the explanations he gave about damning 2017 emails — emails that contradicted his official justification for adding the question — didn’t pass the smell test. He also refused to say whether he spoke to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions about adding the question, or to anyone else at the White House besides Steve Bannon. Ross was not the only admin...

Ross Won’t Disclose What White House Convos He Had About Census Citizenship

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday declined to elaborate on what conversations he may have had with the White House about adding a Census citizenship question —  beyond detailing his previously-known spring 2017 phone call with then-Trump advisor Steve Bannon. House Oversight Democrats sought to grill Ross on any White House conversations, given that his testimony in front of Congress last year suggested he had none. At Thursday’s hearing, Ross said that any hypothetical White House d...

Ross Grilled On Emails From Early 2017 Showing His Interest In Census Change

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday attempted to explain to lawmakers an email he sent to an aide on May 2, 2017, expressing frustration “nothing” had been done in response to his “months old” request to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The email undercut his previous congressional testimony that suggested the push to add the citizenship question was initiated by a December 2017 Justice Department request to have it included. Ross on Thursday said that he was frustrated i...

This Week: Did Trump Intervene To Ensure His Hotel Doesn’t Have A Competitor Next Door?

Democrats in Congress, after five months of waiting and not much to show for it, wrote to the General Services Administration again this week demanding the documents they requested in October related to the FBI’s construction plans. For years, the FBI planned on building a new campus somewhere in the D.C. suburbs and abandoning its current address just steps away from the Trump International Hotel, where the crumbling J. Edgar Hoover building sits. Before Trump was elected, he expressed inter...

CNN: Despite Ivanka’s Denial, Trump Did Interfere In Her Security Clearance Process

CNN reported Tuesday that despite senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump’s denials just weeks ago, President Donald Trump did push for her security clearance, eventually circumventing his own staffers and granting her the pass. Trump reportedly put the screws to former chief of staff John Kelly and former White House Counsel Don McGahn to ignore the red flags in Ivanka’s profile — and those in her husband, Jared Kushner’s — and grant her the clearance. When they said no, Trump gave Ivanka an...

Senator demands details on Michael Cohen banking data privacy breach by IRS employee

Michael Cohen makes his opening statement before the House Oversight Committee on Feb. 27, 2019. (C-SPAN video screenshot) We have a complicated relationship with money, particularly when it comes to divulging details about it in our personal lives. Few of us (outside of personal finance bloggers) want to say how much we make. We tend to be vague, saying we're doing fine or perhaps going as far as to say things like "in the high five figures." We're a little more forthcoming when it comes...

Trump Suggests Cohen Testimony May Have Added To Failed Talks With North Korea

President Trump suggested in a tweet on Sunday that the timing of his former attorney Michael Cohen’s testimony before the House Oversight Committee “may have contributed” to failed denuclearization talks between the U.S. and North Korea. For the Democrats to interview in open hearings a convicted liar & fraudster, at the same time as the very important Nuclear Summit with North Korea, is perhaps a new low in American politics and may have contributed to the “walk.” Never done when a president ...

Trump Claims Cohen Wrote ‘Love Letters To Trump’ Book, Demands Congress Subpoena It

Back in the White House, President Trump used his Friday morning to make his feelings about his former lawyer’s testimony before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday abundantly clear. In a series of unhinged tweets on Friday morning, Trump alleges that Cohen wrote a book called “Love Letters To Trump” and was shopping it around after the incidents in Charlottesville and Helsinki, which Cohen says made him go rogue. He said the manuscript was the “exact opposite of his fake testimony, wh...

Videos of Mark Meadows saying "send Obama home to Kenya" resurface hours after he denied being a racist at Cohen hearing

Towards the end of the Michael Cohen's Oversight Committee hearing yesterday, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) was highly insulted when Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) suggested he had committed a racist act by bringing in one of his black employees "as a prop." “And it is insensitive..." Tlaib said, "the fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racist in itself.” Meadows immediately reacted, insisting with high emotion that he was not a ...

He retorted loudly, saying that her implication was racist and citing black people in his life. Unfortunately for the self-righteous congressman, videos have surfaced since the fracas that show him espousing the thoroughly debunked “birther” theory about President Barack Obama. Here’s Mar...
