According to an exclusive report from Politico, staff members from the National Republican Congressional Committee admitted that they stood outside the building housing their Democratic counterparts and snapped pictures of a slide show detailing their plans to further their gains in the House in the 2020 election.
The report states, “On Wednesday night the NRCC walked across the street to the DCCC’s headquarters on Capitol Hill to stake out some Dem candidates, and stumbled upon what they consider a quite fortuitous find. Dems say it represents tactics that are totally out of bounds, and downright creepy.”
Politico reports that the GOP operatives snapped pictures while peering through windows at an angle where they could not be seen (evidence posted here) with them admitting, “As we walked to the DCCC, we could clearly see the slideshow titled ‘DCCC California Delegation’ from the sidewalk where a driveaway from a gated parking lot meets the street. There was an ashtray there, so we stood where the sidewalk meets the driveway for an hour and smoked next to the ashtray so we could photograph slides and take notes on polling data. Since it was the end of the workday and a big meeting was starting, at least a dozen people walked past us during this time (Members, security and DCCC staff). No one took issue with us at any point. ”
Politico adds, ” Republicans say they gleaned a wealth of valuable intel on the state of key House contests. For example, the NRCC learned that Democrats’ internal polling shows the special election in California’s 25th District — Katie Hill’s former seat — as just a 4-point race, with Republican former Rep. Steve Knight trailing Chrissy Smith 30-26. They also had slides that appeared to show the DCCC’s favorites in contested Democratic primaries.”

‘His incompetence will cost lives’: Joe Biden goes after Trump on coronavirus in new 2020 campaign ad
Former Vice President is continuing to campaign for president in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic hitting America.
On Saturday, Biden went after Trump on the issue of coronavirus testing.
"Where are the tests, Mr. President?" Biden asked.
Biden followed up with an online video warning that lives will be needlessly lost.
"His failure will cost lives," the video says. "His downplaying will cost lives. His incompetence will cost lives."
Joe Biden has one key coronavirus question he wants answered: ‘Where are the tests, Mr. President?’
Despite the inability to hold campaign rallies, the 2020 presidential campaign is continuing in spite of the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis.
With the response to coronavirus being the top public policy discussion in America, all eyes are focused on President Donald Trump's actions.
Trump had promised the nation that he would set up COVID-19 drive-thru testing sites in the parking lots of big-box retailers but has so far failed to deliver.
Trump’s chilling re-election calculus is to focus on economy instead of lives says former administration official: Report
Two top Washington Post journalists are out with a stunning story Saturday morning, an inside look at President Donald Trump's "risky push to reopen the country amid the coronavirus crisis."
Robert Costa and Philip Rucker took a deep dive into this week's developments, writing that "in private discussions, the president has been driven much more by economic concerns, according to people involved in internal debates or briefed on them. Trump has long viewed the stock market as a barometer for his own reelection hopes, and he has been distraught at the meltdown in recent weeks. He has been inundated with calls from business leaders, wealthy supporters and conservative allies urging him to get Americans back to work and stave off further calamity, even if doing so carries health risks."
