Democrats are planning to take out these 32 vulnerable lawmakers in 2020

Not content with taking control of the House in 2018 midterm election, Democrats are already eyeing vulnerable Republican lawmakers — many of  whom are closely allied with unpopular President Donald Trump ahead of the 2020 election.

According to CNN, the Democratic leadership has created a list of 32 GOP House members — including two who are under federal investigations and may not make it to the 2020 election– whose seats may be up for grabs.

In a Democratic Party strategy memo obtained by CNN, Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, listed their targets — all of whom survived the “blue wave’ 2018 midterm Republican debacle.

“2018 was just the tip of the iceberg for Democrats,” said Bustos. “Today we are announcing our plan to go on offense and grow our New Democratic Majority. We have a clear path to expanding our Democratic Majority, and by putting our plans in motion earlier in the cycle than ever before, we are demonstrating to Democrats across the country that the political arm of House Democrats is operating in high gear from the start.”

Among their targets is Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), who is closely aligned with Donald Trump’s administration and has run interference for the president who is under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Additionally, the seats held by two House members who are under investigation by the Justice Department, Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Chris Collins (R-NY), are seen by Democrats as ripe for the picking, particularly if they open up before the 2020 election.

Also targeted is Rep. Steve King (R-IA) who was recently rebuked by his own party for his support of white nationalists.

‘A no-win situation’: Companies are using a 1930s law to avoid Trump’s tariffs — and it’s costing them dearly

Published

on

A few weeks ago, signs went up in the parking lots and loading docks at Fluid Equipment Development Co., a small manufacturer in Monroe, Michigan, a lakeside town a bit south of Detroit.

“WARNING,” they read. “This bonded facility is under the custody and control of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and any person entering these premises must comply to the laws governed therein.”

FEDCO is a U.S. company operating on American soil. It makes sophisticated pumps that turn seawater into fresh water. But to protect itself against punishing new tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump, it has turned to an obscure program that began 85 years ago — the last time tariffs soared as high as they are today.

Trump and his enablers are now in open defiance of all democratic norms: Congress needs to quit stalling and impeach

Published

During all the months when the world waited with bated breath for the results of the Mueller report, the most pressing question was always whether the special prosecutor would find that President Trump and his campaign had colluded with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election. Trump had branded the investigation a "witch hunt" and repeated the words "No collusion! No obstruction!" on a loop. But legal observers made clear that there was no legal concept called "collusion." and instead Mueller would be looking at whether or not the Trump campaign had engaged in a criminal conspiracy.
