Rep. Mark Meadows on Wednesday was reduced to angrily fuming about Hillary Clinton’s missing State Department emails after a Democratic colleague shamed him for enabling President Donald Trump’s obstruction of congressional investigations.
During a hearing held by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) hammered the Trump administration for stonewalling multiple congressional investigations and refusing to comply with any congressional subpoenas.
“This administration has tried to pull the curtain down over the executive branch and say, ‘We’re not cooperating with the census investigation and we’re not cooperating with the request for the president’s tax returns,'” Raskin said. “They simply are not respecting the constitutional role of Congress!”
Raskin went on to show how the Obama administration did comply with congressional subpoenas and handed over documents requested by Republicans investigating the White House.
“My friends on the other side of the aisle got millions of documents in the Benghazi investigation and in ‘Fast and Furious’ and in the Hillary Clinton email investigation,” he said. “I could go on and on.”
“Well we’re still missing 30,000 emails, I can tell you that!” complained Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), referring to Clinton’s missing emails.
Even though Clinton lost the 2016 election and is not the president of the United States, congressional Republicans have continued trying to probe her missing emails for the last three years.

Walmart got a $2.2 billion tax cut — now it’s laying off workers

The giant retailer will lay off about 570 employees and close its corporate office near the Charlotte airport, despite signing a 12-year lease just four years earlier, the Charlotte Business Journal reported.
The work done at the Charlotte facility will be outsourced to a firm in Arkansas, according to the report.
Amazon, Google and Facebook warrant antitrust scrutiny for many reasons – not just because they’re large
There’s a growing chorus of U.S. politicians, antitrust scholars and consumer watchdogs calling for stricter antitrust treatment of Amazon, Google, Facebook and other tech giants. Some even say they should be broken up.
Most recently, U.S. lawmakers launched a sweeping review to determine if these companies have become so big and powerful that they are stifling competition and harming consumers, while federal regulators are also gearing up to take action.
Hacker used $35 computer to steal restricted NASA data
A hacker used a tiny Raspberry Pi computer to infiltrate NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory network, stealing sensitive data and forcing the temporary disconnection of space-flight systems, the agency has revealed.
The April 2018 attack went undetected for nearly a year, according to an audit report issued on June 18, and an investigation is still underway to find the culprit.
A Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized device sold for about $35 that plugs into home televisions and is used mainly to teach coding to children and promote computing in developing countries.
Prior to detection, the attacker was able to exfiltrate 23 files amounting to approximately 500 megabytes of data, the report from NASA's Office of inspector General said.
