Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee announced Tuesday that they will be issuing their own report on the panel’s findings after the GOP majority “prematurely” shut down the Russia investigation.
The GOP majority’s decision to end the probe “was a terrible disservice to the country and the American people” that “represented a reneging on the commitment that was made at the outset of the investigation to follow the facts wherever they lead,” ranking committee member Adam Schiff (D-CA) said during a televised press conference.
“We are going to do our best to continue to find the truth,” Schiff continued. “There are individuals who want to cooperate with our committee and share information and will continue to do so.”
He then said Democrats on the committee “will put together a report that will set out what evidence we have seen to date, what evidence we have seen in terms of the Russian hacking and dumping operation, what evidence we have seen in terms of the Russian social media campaign and, yes, the issue of collusion with the Trump campaign.”
“Our work is far from done,” the ranking Democrat said. “We will be submitting to the public a detailed account of what we have learned to date and the work that has to be done if not by us than by others so that the country can be sure that its administration is acting in the best interest of the country and not because of leverage the Russians may have over the president of the United States.”
Maddow reveals how Chinese group Falun Gong went from disrupting events to running a shadow campaign for Trump
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Tuesday detailed the remarkable journey of the group Falun Gong shifting from disrupting White House events to dominating the conversation on Facebook.
Maddow hilariously recounted the "major embarrassment" for the George W. Bush White House when a protester interrupted remarks by President of China Hu Jintao.
The protester was credentialed to cover the event for the Epoch Times, which is controlled by Falun Gong.
"Well, NBC News has a scoop out today about that group, about how that paper, the Epoch Times has transformed itself a lot in the Trump era. It’s a real revelation, this reporting from NBC News," Maddow said. "I mean, Epoch Times and its media group, they’ve made themselves into a whole new thing entirely and in a very big way."
Trump’s failed Federal Reserve nominee doesn’t even know what the interest rate was 10 years ago
On Tuesday, CNN's Chris Cuomo invited on Stephen Moore, supply-side economist and President Donald Trump's failed pick for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, to discuss the state of the administration — and Moore made a hilariously wrong remark about interest rates that suggests the country was better off without him.
"There's no greatest economy ever," said Cuomo. "You know these things ... he's doing well. He's not doing better than we've ever seen before, and you guys got the benefits of juicing the economy with this tax cut. Fair point?"
"Let me say this, I think it's a pretty darn good economy," said Moore. "I'll cite a few statistics. It's a pretty darn good one. We have the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years ... and for blacks and Hispanics and women."
