    Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) on Monday announced that he would self-quarantine at his home after coming into contact with a person who later tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The announcement makes Collins the third GOP lawmaker to say they're taking the precautionary measure. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) separately said on Sunday that they would self-quarantine until 14 days had passed since interacting with the individual at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Maryland. “This afternoon, I was notified by CPAC that they discovered a photo of myself and the patient who has tested...

    Top Republican: 'There won’t be a report' from John Durham Rep. Doug Collins, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News last week what he believes will come out of the secretive inquiry, often called the "investigation into the investigators." “This is not going to be a Mueller report; there won’t be a report,” the Georgia Republican said, referring to former special counsel Robert Mueller's 448-page report. Collins said he believes the public will hear about the progress Durham has made when there is an indictment. “When he’s ready to charge people, he’ll charge people," Collins said....
  • Why Doug Collins Needs to Win the Georgia Senate Race

    As is well known, Georgia senator Johnny Isakson resigned in December due to health issues. He never should have run for re-election in 2016, but that's another matter. He had three years left in his term, and Governor Brian Kemp solicited applications from Georgians to fill his seat for 2020. Kemp received hundreds of applications, one of which was from Representative Doug Collins, of my congressional district — the Georgia 9th. Collins was President Trump's choice to replace Isakson. The president reportedly asked Governor Kemp on several occasions to appoint Collins to the Senate, but Kemp bucked the president and...

    President Trump said late Thursday that he is considering Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., for the permanent Director of National Intelligence job, a move that could resolve a mini-crisis in the GOP surrounding Collins' challenge against incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., in Georgia's upcoming special election. Yet Collins told Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo on Friday morning that while he's humbled by the possible offer, he is focused on running for Senate and would not accept the job. "This is not a job that interests me, at this time it's not one that I would accept because I'm running a Senate...
  • Why nominating Doug Collins for DNI would kill three birds with one stone

    Many Republicans are crossing their fingers. After President Trump told reporters on Air Force One that he’s considering nominating Representative Doug Collins to be the next Director of National Intelligence, the benefits of such a move were not hard to calculate. It would be a huge win for the GOP on multiple fronts, not the least of which would be to put someone in the critical position the President could actually trust. The President has already assigned Richard Grenell to be acting DNI, replacing Joseph Maguire who, as an acting DNI as well, was required to step down soon. There...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi can't stop talking about impeachment, which is weird because the president was acquitted earlier this month on the two articles that House Democrats managed to drum up against him. The Speaker wants everyone to believe the president is damaged goods and Trump will now remain "impeached forever." But Doug Collins isn't having it. The Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee told Fox and Friends on Sunday that what Speaker Pelosi keeps saying in interviews simply is "not true," and he encouraged Pelosi to "get over the disaster" that her and her fellow Democrats put the country...

    Democrats took the first step to repeal President Trump’s expanding travel bans Wednesday at a House Judiciary Committee session that devolved into a debate on whether the restrictions amount to a Muslim ban and whether it’s OK to call Trump “occasionally honest.” In a sometimes-testy committee markup, Democrats passed the “No Ban Act” to repeal Trump’s bans that apply to foreign nationals from seven countries – with an additional six countries on deck later this month. While the measure is unlikely to advance in the GOP-controlled Senate, Democrats panned the restrictions as a cruel Muslim ban that has torn thousands...

    WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump suggested Thursday that he’s working on a compromise between U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler and U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, two Georgia Republicans who are clashing over the same seat in a November election. The president floated the idea that one of the two could leave the race during a speech at the White House celebrating the defeat of the Democratic-led attempt to remove him from office. “I know, Kelly, that you’re going to end up liking him a lot,” Trump said of Collins, whom the president called an “unbelievable friend.” He added: “Something’s going to happen...

    Top Senate Republicans are warning Rep. Doug Collins that running against Sen. Kelly Loeffler in Georgia’s special Senate primary could pave the way for an otherwise unlikely Democratic sweep in the state in November. ”The shortsightedness in this decision is stunning. Doug Collins’ selfishness will hurt David Perdue, Kelly Loeffler, and President Trump," National Republican Senatorial Committee Executive Director Kevin McLaughlin said in a statement. Collins, a Trump ally and part of his impeachment defense team, announced his Senate candidacy on Wednesday. He was passed over for an appointment to the Senate by Gov. Brian Kemp after Johnny Isakson resigned...

    Republican Congressman Doug Collins announced Wednesday a bid for the U.S. Senate in Georgia, teeing up a showdown with fellow GOP Senator Kelly Loeffler in the state's November special election. Collins, a staunch ally of President Trump, confirmed the Senate run in an interview with "Fox and Friends" and on Twitter, where he said he had for months "given serious deliberation to the role I should serve that would best benefit GA, the country and @realDonaldTrump." The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee and a four-term congressman, Collins has emerged as one of the most vocal opponents of the...

    House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-GA) sat down with Fox News' Mark Levin to discuss the Democrats' push to impeach President Donald Trump, which is set to air Sunday night at 8 p.m. EST. In a preview of the interview, Collins explained how a comment Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) made is rather revealing. "I'm going to go back to a statement by the Majority Leader, Mr. Hoyer from Maryland and he made a very revealing statement. For anyone who's concerned about [the] Constitution and rights, and especially me, and even those who, my Democratic counterparts who worry...

    A number of House GOP lawmakers are quietly expressing interest in being selected to join President Trump’s impeachment defense team as Republicans brace for proceedings to move to the upper chamber. The president wants a combination of lawyers and three to four vocal defenders in the House GOP to be on his legal team, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) recently said on the House Freedom Caucus’ podcast. The GOP members most often mentioned as potential candidates include Reps. John Ratcliffe (Texas), Jim Jordan (Ohio) and Doug Collins (Ga.). “I don't know the extent of the lobby from Capitol Hill, I think...

    In a surprise move that outraged his Republican colleagues, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler broke up a marathon impeachment hearing shortly before midnight Thursday without allowing members to cast their planned votes on articles of impeachment against President Trump. After more than 14 hours of brutally partisan debate, Nadler suddenly gaveled out the hearing and told the panel’s 40 members to return at 10 a.m. Friday for a vote on the articles. “It is now very late at night. I want members on both sides of the aisle to think about what has happened over these last days and to...

    The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday night began the "markup" process for the two articles of impeachment against President Trump that they have settled on, barreling toward a final floor vote even as moderate Democrats have floated the idea of backing down in favor of a censure resolution. Almost immediately, the evening proceedings broke out into fiery disagreement, as the panel's top Democrat declared that it would be unsafe to wait until the 2020 election to remove Trump, while the ranking Republican slammed Democrats for attacking Ukraine's leader because he undercut their case against Trump. "We cannot rely on an...

    House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-GA) on Sunday blasted Chairman Jerry Nadler, saying Monday's scheduled impeachment hearing needs to be postponed. According to Collins, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) handed over thousands of pages of documents less than 48 hours before Monday's scheduled impeachment hearing. "This is how desperate, how desperately focused they are on impeaching this president," Collins told Fox News' Maria Bartiromo. "Last week we had our first hearings with the law professors and Jonathan Turley put it to bed about how they're actually abusing power. The next morning Speaker Pelosi comes on and...
