    What do you think is Rep. Cedric Richmond's (D-LA) top priority in Congress? Jobs and the economy? Perhaps health care? Protections for veterans, maybe? Nope. As he revealed on "Face the Nation" this weekend, impeachment is on his radar, but Richmond's more immediate goal is to make sure President Trump loses in 2020.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will run for president in 2020, a senior Democratic lawmaker told The Hill on Tuesday, a move that will shake up the crowded Democratic primary field and make him the clear front-runner for his partys nomination against President Trump. Im giving it a shot, Biden said matter-of-factly during a phone call with a House Democratic lawmaker within the past week a conversation the congressman recounted to The Hill and interpreted as a sure sign that Biden will run in 2020. In the brief phone call, the former vice president asked if he could bounce...

    Democrats are bullish about their prospects in the November midterms, and are peeking around the corner at a 2020 rematch with President Donald Trump. But first, theyre confronting the lingering frustration from 2016. That bitter nominating fight between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders is front and center in Chicago this week as members of the Democratic National Committee gather for their summer meeting. Theyll decide the fate of so-called superdelegates DNC members, elected officials and other party dignitaries. Two years after such delegates overwhelmingly backed Clinton, Sanders supporters argue that this group is the epitome of establishment favoritism. As...

    The United States is a terrible place. At least that appeared to be the theme of Sen. Elizabeth Warrens ominous chat at a historically black college on Friday. Warren was part of a Q&A session hosted by Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond at Dillard University in New Orleans. Lets just start with the hard truth about our criminal justice system, she railed. Its racist. It is. And when I say our system, I mean all the way. I mean front to back. This is not just sentencing reform were talking about here. Were talking about the front end on...

    Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) tore into House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for her comments on NBC's "Meet the Press" earlier this week, saying Pelosi "ceded the moral high ground," by praising Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) amid sexual misconduct allegations. I think that her comments on Sunday set women back and quite frankly, our party back decades, Rice told reporters Wednesday, according to Politico. I think that we ceded the moral high ground on Sunday when our leader said on Meet the Press that John Conyers was an icon and we dont even know who these women are,...

    WASHINGTON U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn could find himself in hot water. A flippant response the Columbia Democrat made to reporters while walking in the Capitol is drawing the ire of many. When asked about sexual harassment allegations against colleague Rep.

    We didn’t go there, did we? I mean seriously? Did Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), the third ranking member of the House Democratic Caucus, pretty much insinuate that the accusations against Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) shouldn’t be believed because the accusers are white? Conyers is under fire for sexual misconduct. In 2015, he settled a sexual harassment claim to the tune of $27,000 in taxpayer money. Melanie Sloan, a Washington lawyer, claimed to be the subject of verbal abuse by Conyers, even walking into his office to have the Michigan Democrat half-dressed. She has not alleged any sexual harassment, but Deanna...

    The racial dynamics of the sexual harassment allegations against Congress' longest-serving member are causing division within the Democratic Party. [Snip] Some have noted that the response to Conyers, who many consider a civil rights icon, seem harsher than how party leaders have responded to other Democrats facing allegations. The congressman's attorney told CNN that Pelosi has to "explain what the discernible difference between Congressman Conyers and Sen. Al Franken is." Conyers's district is predominantly black and includes large portions of Detroit. Franken, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by at least five women, represents constituents in Minnesota who are...

    Rep. Cedric Richmond spoke yesterday at the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner. His attempt at a comedy routine wound up being an example of what not to do. Few of his remarks were funny but he really face-planted when he brought up Kellyanne Conway “and the picture on the sofa.” “I really just want to know what was going on there,” Richmond said to Sen. Tim Scott. He continued, “You know I won’t tell anybody and you can just explain to me that circumstance because she really looked kind of familiar in that position.” Richmond was referring to Couchgate. That’s...

    Kellyanne Conway believes the news media would be more outraged about a Democratic congressmans crude joke that the White House staffer looks familiar with being on her knees if she were a pro-abortion woman, she told The Daily Caller, adding that she believed the joke was sexist. Asked over text if she thought there would be more media outrage about the comment if she were a liberal woman, Conway told The Daily Caller, Yes. She added: And it is not just if I were a liberal woman, but if I were a pro-abortion one. I really just want to know...

    On Wednesday, Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) head of the Congressional Black Caucus blasted the Senate Judiciary Committees decision to have three black members of Congress testify last at Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) Tuesday confirmation hearing for attorney general, saying it was the equivalent of being sent to the back of the bus. First I want to address my concerns about being made to testify at the end of the witness panels, Richmond said, according to The Hill. To have a senator, a House member, and living civil rights legend testify at the end of all of this is...
