    House Democratic leaders scrambled Monday night to rally support for their border funding bill amid a liberal outcry over the Trump administration's treatment of migrant children — and questions over whether the Democrats' proposal would do enough to protect them. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other top leaders huddled in Pelosi's Capitol office late into the night with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC), the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) and the senior appropriators who have championed the border bill. Lawmakers leaving the meeting said they expected changes to the $4.5 billion package to ensure stricter standards for the facilities...

    There’s 934.5 million for processing facilities, food, water, sanitary items, blankets, etc. $866 million would go to “reduce reliance on influx shelters to house children.” Another $200 million is allocated to develop an “integrated, multi-agency processing center pilot program for families.” You’re probably getting the idea. There’s another serious poison pill in the package as well. One provision would, “require the federal government to prospectively notify illegal immigrants that if they bring an unaccompanied child into the country and sponsor them, their illegal status would in no way be used against them, a source said, and that the child will...

    Wagons, circle. In the wake of AOC’s latest stupid comment, in which she conflates detention of immigrants seeking to enter our country illegally with the Nazi extermination of Jews, we get Democrats ‘splaining it away: “Don’t feign outrage at the language that people use to describe this tragedy,” says Senator Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii “One of the lessons from the Holocaust is ‘Never Again’ – not only to mass murder, but also to the dehumanization of people, violations of basic rights, and assaults on our common morality. We fail to learn that lesson when we don’t callout such inhumanity right in...

    President Donald Trump admitted Sunday his decision to stall deportation for illegal immigrants in order for Democrats to work out a deal would probably not work. “I want to give the Democrats every last chance to quickly negotiate simple changes to Asylum and Loopholes,” Trump said. “This will fix the Southern Border, together with the help that Mexico is now giving us.” Trump halted the scheduled crackdown on Saturday at the request of Democrats, he explained on Twitter, expressing optimism that they could fix the problems at the border in two weeks. Trump acknowledged Sunday that the proposed solution would...

    Well, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) caused House Democrats a lot of heartburn over her past anti-Semitic antics. It led to a fiasco over a non-binding resolution condemning hate, which some Democrats felt singled Omar out. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi might say that the Omar-Ocasio-Cortez faction of the caucus is small, but they sure have clout. A large swath of the 2020 field has backed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal. What the Omar situation has shown is that Pelosi is either incapable or unwilling to get her rowdy members under control.Now, Ocasio-Cortez has decided to deliver another hot take:...

    Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador convened a special legislative session to hold the vote after the Senate convened in April..“The USMCA is synonymous with opportunity in the short and long term,” Mexican Sen. Verónica Martínez García said of the pact. Canada has already introduced legislation through its parliament to ratify the agreement and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to lobby Democrats to support the USMCA during his visit to Washington, D.C., this week. Meanwhile, the deal is running into some roadblocks , Speaker Nancy Pelosi has the authority to bring legislation on the matter before the chamber,...

    Historian Victor Davis Hanson described why he feels his home state of California is America’s first “Third World state” during a Monday night appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Hanson’s comments came after the state’s Democratic governor, Gavin Newsom, said that national Republicans will go “into the waste bin of history, the way Republicans of the ’90s [in California] have gone.” Responding to host Tucker Carlson’s question about why he considers California a “Third World state,” Hanson pointed to “symptoms” we typically “associate with failed states” such as high taxes, poor schools, a super-rich class, and a significant percentage...

    To paraphrase War Games, the only way to win impeachment is not to play. Nancy Pelosi apparently agrees, and that’s no WOPR according to the WaPo, which reports all quiet on the impeachment front, at least for now.Is it because House Democrats respect Pelosi, or fear her? Yes: As pressure has mounted in recent weeks on House Democrats to move more aggressively against Trump, Pelosi has demonstrated the firm grip she wields over her caucus — quashing, at least for now, the push for impeachment. It is a command that colleagues say is drawn from a deep well of...

    One thing that comes with being in politics for awhile: a thick skin and a sense of humor, both of which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has. Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently took shots at McConnell, calling him the Senate's "grim reaper" because he refuses to bring Democrats' ridiculous legislation before the entire chamber. "Leader McConnell seems to take great pride in calling himself the ‘Grim Reaper.' It’s part of his political campaign," Pelosi said. During an appearance on Fox News' "Ingraham Angle," McConnell said he agreed with Pelosi. “She’s got it right. For the first time in my memory,...

    **SNIP** Lawmakers had already been compiling a fresh package of bills in the aftermath of special counsel Robert Mueller's findings in the Trump-Russia probe. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Democrats are now pushing ahead with votes because it's part of "what the American people elected us to do." **SNIP** Even though the nation’s intelligence agencies said from early 2017 that it was clear Russia tried to influence the 2016 election in favor of Trump, Republicans who led both chambers did not move comprehensive legislation to address the issue. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has declined to hold a vote...

    Famed Harvard law professor and attorney Alan Dershowitz said Thursday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should be "ashamed of herself" for reportedly saying she wanted to see President Trump in prison. Dershowitz also defended the president's right to fight back. "I have to tell you, as a liberal Democrat, I'm appalled at Nancy Pelosi. The idea of her weaponizing the criminal justice system -- and calling for the imprisonment of the president of the United States without him being charged with any crime, without him being charged with any impeachable offense -- it's just outrageous," Dershowitz said on Fox News'...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday blasted President Donald Trump’s comments saying that he would take assistance from a foreign entity ahead of the 2020 election but stopped short of saying they could trigger impeachment. Speaking to reporters, the U.S. House of Representatives’ top Democrat said her caucus would continue to investigate Trump and his administration through their various committees, one day after Trump said he would take information from foreign sources on any political opponents and might not contact the FBI.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday said that she doesn't want to spend much time discussing criticisms President Trump made about her while he was overseas last week, saying that doing so would give Trump a win."I'm done with him," she said at an event on fiscal policy hosted by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation. "I don't even want to talk about it." The Speaker added, "My stock goes up every time he attacks me." During a Fox News interview last week while in Normandy, France, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, Trump called Pelosi a “nasty, vindictive, horrible...

    “You’re here as a prop. You’re functionally here as a prop because they can’t impeach Donald Trump”: Hand it to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) for cutting to the heart of John Dean’s testimony Monday before the House Judiciary Committee. Chairman Jerry Nadler has to put on a show of pursuing President Trump because the party’s left wing demands it. But Speaker Nancy Pelosi won’t let Nadler go to impeachment hearings because she knows the broader public will see it as a partisan outrage. Pelosi’s bid to appease the extremists runs to quotes about how she wants to see Trump “in...

    Trump’s success in getting Mexico to agree to do more to curb the flow of illegal immigrants through their country and into the United States should be receiving universal praise, but unfortunately, Democrats, who we all know want to see illegal immigration increase to help secure their party’s power in government, couldn’t concede that Trump’s plan worked. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Trump’s tariff threat, which succeeded in its goal, a counterproductive exercise in “threats and temper tantrums.” “President Trump undermined America’s preeminent leadership role in the world by recklessly threatening to impose tariffs on our close friend and neighbor...

    Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said Sunday that he believes President Donald Trump has committed crimes when he was asked about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's recent comment that she would prefer to see Trump "in prison" than "see him impeached." "He did," O'Rourke, a former House member from Texas, told ABC's "This Week" when asked about Pelosi's remark and whether he thought Trump had committed crimes that could be prosecuted. "I think that's clear from what we have learned from [special counsel Robert Mueller's] report, but I think those crimes might extend beyond what we've seen in the Mueller report."...
