    Congressman John Rose (R-TN-06) and several other GOP members of the House of Representatives held a press conference to highlight the concerns of Americans over a shortage of baby formula. During the press conference, Rose questioned the administration on their efforts to fix the crisis, as little noticeable improvement has been made. In fact, he highlighted the story of one mother from his district that was forced to drive to six different stores in search of a hypoallergenic variety of formula. “The president yesterday was in the Midwest raising money for the DNC. But, I say to the president: The shelves are empty, Mr. President, and so are your words. If I have to go to the FDA myself to get answers I will, because the bottom line is parents want answers to what this president is doing. And we deserve those answers,” Rose said during the event. Previously, the Tennessee lawmaker and other Republicans sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration to outline a series of questions about their efforts. “Just yesterday, the FDA announced a...
    The House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol has subpoenaed five Republican lawmakers to learn about their conversations with Donald Trump and other information they have about the day. The summons includes House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy of Calfornia along with GOP Reps. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Mo Brooks of Alabama.  The lawmakers either participated in meetings at the White House, had direct conversations with President Trump leading up to and during the attack, or were involved in the planning and coordination of certain activities on and before January 6th, the committee said in a statement. 'The committee just found that before we close the loop on our investigation, the members should come in should they choose and offer a response to the information we found,' Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, chairman of the panel, told reporters on Capitol Hill.  If any of the lawmakers refuse, the Democratic-controlled House could vote to hold them in contempt of Congress. From there, the Justice Department would decide whether or not to formally pursue charges. ...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — House investigators said Thursday they have issued subpoenas to House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and four other GOP lawmakers as part of their probe into the violent Jan. 6 insurrection, an extraordinary step that has little precedent and is certain to further inflame partisan tensions over the 2021 attack. The Jan. 6 panel’s subpoenas for McCarthy, R-Calif., and Republican Reps. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Andy Biggs of Arizona and Mo Brooks of Alabama come as the investigation is winding down and as the panel prepares for a series of public hearings this summer. The committee has been investigating McCarthy’s conversations with then-President Donald Trump the day of the attack and meetings that the four other lawmakers had with the White House as Trump and his aides conspired how to overturn his defeat. Congressional subpoenas for sitting members of Congress, especially for a party leader, are almost without precedent in recent decades. The panel had previously asked for voluntary cooperation from the five men, along with a handful of other GOP lawmakers,...

    A Connecticut bill that would protect abortion access comes as GOP-dominated states enact new restrictions in anticipation of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. The Connecticut House of Representatives passed a bipartisan bill this week that could transform the state into a sanctuary for legal abortion and effectively combat laws banning abortion in other states.   As a growing number of conservative-led state legislatures across the country introduce and pass anti-abortion laws, Connecticut lawmakers moved to protect women's reproductive rights. If the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the landmark Roe v. Wade decision this summer, 26 states are likely to ban abortion, according to an analysis by the Guttmacher Institute. "Expanding access and protecting reproductive rights in Connecticut has never been more important," Democratic state Rep. Christine Palm said in a statement on April 20. "I was proud to be a co-sponsor of HB 5414, which will protect Connecticut residents, including abortion providers, from the vigilantism being encouraged by such bills as Texas' S.B. 8 and Missouri's H.B. 2810 (which even criminalizes a woman experiencing a dangerous ectopic pregnancy)."  House Bill...
    House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) delivers remarks about U.S. President Joe Biden's first year in office on Capitol Hill in Washington, January 20, 2022.Kevin Lamarque | Reuters House Republican leaders have privately discussed ways they can campaign during midterm congressional elections on the issue of limiting lawmakers' stock trading, an attempt to seize on one of the hot-button issues in Washington. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and other top GOP members of the House discussed the matter with donors last weekend in Miami, according to people briefed on the matter.  McCarthy and other leaders told donors that they would aim to pass legislation that would limit lawmakers' ability to trade stocks, the people said. If, as expected, they win back the House in the midterm elections this fall, Republicans would bring such legislation to the House floor at the start of the new Congress, said a person familiar with the matter. At a separate round of meetings that started Monday in Miami, GOP party leaders were aiming to discuss campaigning on the issue and potential legislation, people familiar...

    Republicans in Pennsylvania and Georgia want to force more reviews of 2020 presidential election results. Republicans across the country are trying to copy Arizona's shoddy and scandal-plagued audit of the 2020 election results in an effort to keep up the lies that the contest was rife with fraud and stolen from Donald Trump — neither of which are true. Republicans in both Pennsylvania and Georgia, which, like Arizona, President Joe Biden narrowly carried in the 2020 election, are trying to force similar audits of their states' election results, even though past reviews have failed to turn up any evidence of fraud. The moves are giving credence to election experts' fears that Arizona's audit — which has been messily run by a Trump-supporting conspiracy theorist — will be copied by Republicans in other states who want to sow doubt about the system of elections. On Wednesday, Republican state legislators from Pennsylvania toured the Arizona audit facility to learn the process. State Sens. Doug Mastriano and Cris Dush, and state Rep. Rob...
    President Biden seems to have a spotty memory when it comes to names and details.  On Monday, the president appeared to forget Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s name during a White House event, calling the Pentagon chief "the guy who runs that outfit over there." "And I want to thank the sec -- the, the, ah former general. I keep calling him general, but my, my -- the guy who runs that outfit over there," Biden said. In December, Biden announced his pick to lead Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, but introduced him with the wrong name and title. "For Secretary of Health and Education Services, I nominate Xavier Bacheria," Biden had said while reading from the teleprompter. A moment later, Biden correctly pronounced Becerra's last name. BIDEN SEEMS TO FORGET DEFENSE SEC'S NAME Biden, 78, made history as the oldest person to ever assume the presidency.  Last month, appearing in Houston, Biden thanked Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, whom he referred to as "Shirley Jackson Lee.  In October 2020, the then-Democratic candidate mispronounced the name of his running mate, now-Vice President Kamala...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity scolded Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Monday for speaking out against former President Donald Trump after voting to acquit him in his impeachment trial over the weekend. The "Hannity" host took aim at "Republicans who have turned their backs on the former president," in his opening monologue, pointing specifically to the "sanctimonious" McConnell as well as the seven Republican lawmakers who voted to convict Trump of inciting the Jan. 6th Capitol riot. "Where was John Thune [R-S.D.] and Mitch McConnell fighting against the biggest abuse of power corruption scandal in our history with Operation Crossfire Hurricane?" Hannity asked. "They were missing in action. Where’s the sanctimonious Mitch McConnell, John Thune, demanding that Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters — when is he going to give a speech on the Senate floor and hold those Democrats accountable for their incitement of insurrection and their insurrection-like language? The time is now coming for new leadership in the U.S. Senate." MCCONNELL RIPS TRUMP, SAYS ACTIONS 'UNCONSCIONABLE' BUT TRIAL WAS UNCONSTITUTIONAL Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina, Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) joined other Republicans in Congress on Friday to urge the Department of Justice to investigate Netflix after the backlash against “Cuties,” a new movie that depicts young girls in sexually provocative ways. Cruz tweeted a public letter he sent to Attorney General Bill Barr, writing on Saturday, “Following [Netflix]’s disturbing promotion of “Cuties,” I sent a letter calling on [DOJ] to investigate whether Netflix, its executives, or the filmmakers violated any federal laws against the production and distribution of child pornography.” Following @netflix’s disturbing promotion of “Cuties,” I sent a letter calling on @TheJusticeDept to investigate whether Netflix, its executives, or the filmmakers violated any federal laws against the production and distribution of child pornography. pic.twitter.com/P7wLXixU6X — Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) September 12, 2020 Cruz joined other lawmakers in his condemnation of Netflix, such as Sen.
