During a talk on sanctions at the University of California, Los Angeles, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was heckled by protesters — and reportedly doesn’t want people to see what happened.

The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that Mnuchin asked the school not to publish video of the altercation in which at least two student protesters shouted at him.

“It wasn’t black people and brown people in the inner cities who did this, and yet you are punishing them,” one of the protesters said before being forcibly lifted by campus police and taken from the room. Another accused him of being a fascist, and the Journal notes that one of them told Mnuching he is “a piece of sh*t.”

Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Corey Booker and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke are just three of the ten Democrats who will appear on the debate stage in Miami Wednesday night.

The Democrats are set to take the stage at 9 p.m. EST and will speak in 60-second sound-bytes for two hours, the rules state. Prior to the debate, two candidates went to one of the ports of entry and immigration is likely to be a key issue in the discussion.

Retired admiral could pose serious threat if he decides to run against Iowa Republican: report

Published

on

On Wednesday, Iowa Starting Line reported that Ret. Adm. Michael Franken is in talks with state and national Democrats about challenging GOP Sen. Joni Ernst.

Franken, who has served as Deputy for Military Operations for AFRICOM, Director of the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, and Chief of Legislative Affairs for the Department of the Navy, hails from Sioux Center, a town in the deeply conservative northwest part of the state.

Ernst, who first gained national attention for her 2014 campaign ad about castrating hogs, is a reliable vote for President Donald Trump in the Senate, and the president's poor approval ratings in Iowa have left Democrats hopeful that they can defeat her.
