    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) said Thursday that Democrats are closely monitoring fraud allegations in North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District but said they would only call for a new election if it’s impossible to determine the winner. “The House Administration Committee will have full investigative authority to determine the winner of the election,” Pelosi said. “And … only if it’s impossible to determine who the winner is, would we take the extraordinary step of calling for a new election.” The midterm results in North Carolina’s 9th District have been embroiled in controversy since a number of voters have emerged...

    Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said Wednesday that a congresswoman besides Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) should be the House Speaker. “There’s plenty of really competent females that we can replace her with,” Ryan told reporters, before listing people such as Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) as potential candidates, The New York Times reported Thursday. His comments come as the battle for Democratic leadership in the House intensifies. Pelosi, who held the Speaker position from 2007 to 2011, expressed confidence on Thursday that she had enough support to be voted into the role. But many lawmakers are insistent about the idea of having...

    Rep. Marcia Fudge is in a serious bind as she faces mounting pressure to challenge Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for the Speaker’s gavel — a move that could divide the Ohio Democrat's allegiances between the insurgency she supports and the Black Caucus she once led. A group of anti-Pelosi insurgents has been ramping up efforts to recruit Fudge, a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), amid criticism that the majority-male cohort is trying to oust the top-ranking female Democrat in the “Year of the Woman.” Pelosi allies have been deriding the rebels as “five white guys,” a...

Hoyer spoke with the 28-year-old by phone on Thursday and they had a "good conversation" where he told her to focus on helping Democrats win the majority in the House of Representatives, Roll Call reported.

    House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump “seeks to establish a more authoritarian regime.” Houer was responding to a question about whether former CIA Director John Brennan should be allowed to keep his security clearance after calling a sitting president’s actions “treasonous.” At his regular pen-and-pad briefing with reporters, CNSNews.com asked Hoyer: “Former CIA Director John Brennan has publicly declared the sitting president ‘treasonous.’ Should he be permitted to keep his security clearance?” Hoyer responded: “I’m very, very concerned. This is one instance—but there are so many others—where this president opts to promote totalitarian responses...

    The New York Times editorial board is calling on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her top two deputies to step aside and allow younger Democratic members to lead the caucus. The Times takes aim at Pelosi, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and Democratic Assistant Leader Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., criticizing the trio for maintaining their power rather than preparing the next generation. "For too long, this regime has clung to power at the expense of future leaders," the Times editorial board writes. "Neither of Ms. Pelosi’s two chief deputies, Steny Hoyer, the party whip, and Jim Clyburn, the...

    California’s “jungle” primary system has Democrats worried that Republicans could win some of the Golden State’s congressional seats in midterm elections, a top House Democrat said Friday. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., speaking to USA Today, said Democrats have a shot at winning in more than 50 congressional districts nationwide — enough to take control of the House from the GOP. Democrats need to win 24 seats to flip the House, according to the New York Times, while maintaining the 194 seats they currently hold. But California’s primary system, in which the top two vote-getters face off in the...

This recording needs to spread far and wide! From The Intercept: Progressive candidate Levi Tillemann met with Congressman Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the House of Representatives, to make the case that the party should stay neutral in the Colorado primary and that he had a more plausible path to victory than the same centrism that the Republican incumbent had already beaten repeatedly. Hoyer, however, had his own message he wanted to...

    A far-left congressional candidate in Colorado secretly recorded a meeting he had last year with House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D.-Maryland) who attempted to pressure him into dropping out of the race against the establishment candidate preferred by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. As you can see in the April 26 video below, Hoyer definitely gave off 2016 vibes of the establishment Democrats rigging the primary system in favor of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. Yes, I said "see" because The Intercept entertainingly combined cartoons with the secretly recorded audio.

    Liberal groups demanded the resignation of a top House Democrat on Thursday after he was caught on a secret recording trying to strong-arm a progressive candidate to nix his congressional campaign and clear the way for party leaders’ preferred pick to win. Rep. Steny H. Hoyer, the second-ranking Democrat in the House, told Levi Tillemann, a Democrat running in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District, to drop out because “a judgment was made very early on” that opposing candidate Jason Crow, an Army veteran, was the party’s choice to take on a vulnerable Republican. The recording, which Mr. Tillemann released to the...

Green sent an unprompted joint statement to Washington Post reporter Mike DeBonis signed by himself and Green's former district director, Lucinda Daniels, denying anything untoward happened between the two.

    The House is about to vote on impeachment articles against President Trump. Democratic Rep. Al Green of Texas said he will force a vote on impeaching Trump as early as Wednesday. Republicans will easily table the symbolic vote, but it will put lawmakers on the record. “Three prominent Democrats have asked to meet with me to discuss impeachment,” Green said on the floor Tuesday. Green appeared to be referring to members within his party’s leadership who have urged him to stop his campaign to force an impeachment vote. “I will tell them I refuse to sit on the sidelines while...

    While Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been peddling odd conspiracy theories, rehashing the unfounded allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians, and calling for President Trump’s impeachment, one of her colleagues, Rep. Al Green (D-TX), is actually working on such articles to be filed against the president (via Circa): .@RepAlGreen: “We will move forward, and as a matter of fact, I am currently crafting, drafting if you will, articles of impeachment.” pic.twitter.com/941FTmoyrD— CSPAN (@cspan) May 23, 2017 Green did not say whether he would file a privileged resolution for impeachment.

Steve Cohen (Tenn.), Luis Gutiérrez (Ill.), Al Green (Texas), Adriano Espaillat (N.Y.), Marcia Fudge (Ohio) and John Yarmuth (Ky.) said the five articles of impeachment come out of concern for the country's national security. "We believe that President Trump has violated the Constitution, and we've introduced five articles of impeachment," Cohen said at a press conference.

    House lawmakers will take their first vote on whether to impeach President Trump this week if a Texas Democrat follows through on plans he announced to colleagues Tuesday. Rep. Al Green (D-Tex.) said in a memo to fellow lawmakers that he planned to bring articles of impeachment to the House floor Wednesday as a “privileged resolution,” one that would be entitled to a vote within two days under House rules. Green has discussed impeaching Trump since the spring and previously filed impeachment articles in October, nearly forcing a vote at that time before House Democratic leaders persuaded him to temporarily...

    The House of Representatives overwhelmingly rejected an attempt to impeach President Trump after a liberal Texas congressman forced a vote on his effort. Democratic Rep. Al Green, who has repeatedly called for the president's removal, introduced two articles of impeachment against Trump on Wednesday. But lawmakers immediately voted to effectively kill his resolution, with 364 voting to table it and 58 Democrats voting to move ahead. In a dramatic speech on the floor ahead of the vote, Green called Trump “unfit” for office and accused him of "high misdemeanors." The symbolic vote had been expected to fail in the Republican-controlled...
