House Republicans passed a bill on Thursday to fund the government for four weeks and extend the Children’s Health Insurance Program for six years, after Congress had failed to reauthorize that program for the last four months. But on a procedural vote late Friday, which needed 60 votes to advance the House spending bill, 45 Senate Democrats — and five Senate Republicans — rejected it. Democrats, frustrated with President Trump’s unwillingness to accept a bipartisan proposal to address the nearly 700,000…

Robert Mueller reveals he’s taking down Mike Pence along with Donald Trump

For quite some time now, it’s been clear that Mike Pence willfully lied to the American public in an attempt at protecting Michael Flynn and covering up Donald Trump’s Russia scandal. That means Pence is guilty of obstruction of justice and maybe a lot more. The big question has been whether Special Counsel Robert Mueller would try to take Pence down along with Trump, or wait to tackle Pence until after Trump has been ousted.

Kamala Harris and Cory Booker just made Senate history

In a thrilling turn of events today, bright young Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) have joined the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Jake Tapper just kicked Stephen Miller off his show and Trump responded like a petulant child (VIDEO)

President Trump tweeted his support this morning for his embattled Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller after the White House aide’s disastrous appearance on CNN‘s State of The Union With Jake Tapper. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/950023175907266560 Trump must have been watching the interview through rose-colored glasses to reach that conclusion, since most viewers saw a contentious interview that had both men shouting over each other to be heard and left the impression that Miller was a toadying sycophant willing to distort facts to make his points while refusing to answer Tapper’s questions. Tapper began the conversation by bringing up the scandal du jour, the accusation by former White House Senior Advisor Steve Bannon in the new Michael Wolff book,…
