Sen. Kamala Harris on MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has an interesting proposal for easing the hardship on federal employees resulting from President Donald Trump’s shutdown.

On the thirty-third day of the shutdown, Harris was interviewed on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.” It was her first TV appearance since she announced running for president of the United States on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

“These people cannot be expected to work without pay and they do a job that requires — and we as the American public would hope — that they are able to put full concentration in the job that they have concerning themselves about our security, and we’re not paying them,” Harris noted. “People are worried about eviction.”

“Listen, you know what I think should happen? “If the president feels this strongly about it, then open up the Trump Tower and let everybody live in there rent-free, and then maybe we can start having a discussion,” she suggested.

“I bet he’s got some rooms,” she added.

A report from Politico indicates that there is a battle within the Democratic Party on how much power they will exert placing judges on federal benches should they retake the White House in 2020.

Citing the way that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) held open the Supreme Court seat that was supposed to be filled by Chief United States Circuit Judge Merrick Garland, only to have Trump nominate conservative jurist Neil Gorsuch to the court, Democrats are considering using hardball tactics of their own.

Trump tweets deranged rant about Mueller and the FBI as hearing draws nearer

Published

on

On Monday, President Donald Trump tweeted an angry invective against former special counsel Robert Mueller, who is slated to testify before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees on Wednesday, proclaiming once again — falsely — that the report showed "NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!"

He followed up this outburst with complaints about a litany of villains frequently promoted by Fox News, including the Hillary Clinton campaign and two former FBI agents who were fired after having a affair and who supposedly were biased against him in text messages (though no evidence has ever shown they improperly influenced Mueller's investigation):
