Published

on

Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, whose name appears first on Attorney General William Barr’s letter to Congress (copy below), has emerged as one of President Donald Trump’s top defenders. He is also responsible for determining how the Senate will move forward on the information it receives from the nearly-two-year long Mueller investigation into Russia’s attack on U.S. electoral system and if Donald Trump or any members of his teams conspired with that hostile foreign power.

Graham is literally one of the first four, and one of the top Members of Congress who will be briefed by AG Barr on the Mueller report.

White House reporter for BuzzFeed News:

Published

on

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion.
