    During an interview aired on Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) stated that Florida’s history standards are an instance where Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) “is showing people every day why he is ill-prepared to be president of the United States.” But also acknowledged that he wants to learn “what all is in that list of suggestions as to how they should teach history.” After criticizing a part of the standards on slavery on how instruction will include “how slaves developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit[,]” Clyburn stated, “I’m pretty...

    Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), assistant House Democratic leader, is throwing his weight behind Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) in the California Senate race to replace Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.). “Barbara Lee is the voice Americans need now in the U.S. Senate,” Clyburn said in a statement. “She stands by what she believes in, and she doesn’t back down. In the House, she is an extremely accomplished legislator with a record of delivering historical achievement to end poverty, eradicate HIV and AIDS, and work for global peace and security,” he continued. “In the Senate, she will use all of her experiences to...

    Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “José Díaz-Balart Reports” that the Democrats changed their presidential primary schedule because New Hampshire and Iowa do not “reflect the electorate of the United States of America.” Díaz-Balart asked, “Congressman, the speech comes days after the Democratic National Committee voted to make South Carolina the first primary state in 2024. What does this mean for South Carolina? What is the message that the Democratic Party is sending? Clyburn said, “Well, I think the message the Democratic Party is sending is very simple, that we have a very diverse country, a very diverse...

    South Carolina Democratic Rep. James Clyburn funneled six figures worth of campaign cash to two of his family members throughout the 2022 election cycle, filings show. The longtime congressman's campaign largesse included forking tens of thousands of dollars over to a company linked to his son-in-law. He also sent nearly $100,000 to his grandson, Federal Election Commission records show. While it's legal for federal politicians to pay family members from their campaigns, ethics experts have generally disapproved of the practice. Despite this, both political parties have taken advantage of the perk. Clyburn's family payments the last election cycle include $57,500...

    Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) doubled down on his support for President Joe Biden, who he supported in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. The South Carolina Democrat also pledged his support for Biden as a presidential candidate in the 2024 campaign cycle. “They were saying to me, ‘I like Joe Biden’s agenda, but I think his approach needs to be beefed up a bit, needs to be a little more in your face,’” he said. “Joe Biden’s approach and agenda were exactly the things that we needed in this country, and that’s what people...

    As the Tuesday midterm elections loom, there is scrambling to adjust to the expectation that Republicans will fill the seats in Congress. Speaker Nancy Pelosi is on her way out, and Democrats will need to have a minority leader in place when the turnover happens.If Democrats fail to hold the House, Pelosi is widely expected to step down — not just from leadership, but from Congress, Politico reported.Republicans are currently favored to win the House of Representatives, according to Five Thirty-Eight, and are expected to announce leadership positions a week after the midterms. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy will likely take...

    House Majority Whip Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) said Friday on “The Situation Room” that if Republicans led by former President Donald Trump win majorities in next week’s midterm elections, we are “going to see this democracy come to a crashing halt.” Anchor Brianna Keilar asked, “You recently compared America right now to Germany in the early 1930s. That’s what you said. And you said that we’re on track to repeat what happened in Germany here in America. Can you explain what you see happening here in America that prompted you to say that?”

Why? Because we don’t want to put the full faith and credit of the United States at risk.”

    Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., defended federal involvement in elections, citing Alexander Hamilton while claiming election loss "cannot be left up to the states." This week marked one year since the Jan. 6 Capitol riot that occurred on the day that Congress set to certify President Biden’s win in the 2020 election over former President Donald Trump. The controversy around the post-election days focused on Trump’s efforts to challenge election losses in key states, including Georgia where State Secretary Brad Raffensperger famously rebuffed the then-president’s effort to find more votes.

    Since Jan. 6, when hundreds of protesters breached Capitol security as Congress certified Joe Biden's ostensible Presidential victory, the prevailing narrative blamed President Donald Trump and his supporters for the subsequent mayhem. But as facts come to light, a different picture emerges. Evidence suggests that Antifa staged the breach to discredit Trump and his supporters. Trump's opponents then would manipulate the disorder to justify another impeachment attempt and repress his supporters further. In the ensuing bedlam, however, federal agents who penetrated Antifa took valuable information -- including a laptop belonging to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House....

    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) stated that while the White House and Democrats believe the Build Back Better reconciliation bill will be fully paid for, the Congressional Budget Office might think differently. Clyburn said that if they do, “they’re the experts, we’ll be guided by what they say,” “Even the president’s not an expert in CBO scoring standards,” and that CBO analysis takes into account things that Congressional or White House analysis might miss. Clyburn stated the White House and Democrats promised that the bill will be paid for. He continued, “Now,...

    Congressional Democrats are reintroducing legislation that would repay the families of Black American veterans who served in World War II and were unable to take advantage of the original GI Bill.

To mark Veterans Day, the bill was unveiled Thursday by House Majority Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina and Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts in the House and is expected to be introduced...

    Far-left Democrats were dealt a big blow as former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner, co-chair of Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, was defeated by Cuyahoga County Councilwoman Shontel Brown in a much-anticipated special US House primary election. With 96.5 percent of precincts reporting, Brown led Turner by 4,380 votes out of more than 71,000 votes cast. Turner conceded the race soon after 10 p.m. local time, telling supports: “On this night, we will not cross the river.” The contest in Ohio’s 11th District, a deep-blue constituency that includes most of Cleveland, parts of Akron and several majority-black precincts in between...

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) on Wednesday said it would be “unAmerican” not to prioritize Medicaid expansion in the Democrats's social spending package amid an intra-party clash over health care priorities. Clyburn is a leading advocate of including in President Biden’s Build Back Better plan a provision for the federal government to step in and provide Medicaid coverage in the 12 GOP-led states that have so far declined the coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

    The 10-member panel on the House Ethics Committee voted Thursday to drop the $5,000 fine issued to Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), who challenged the report by the Capitol that said she failed to complete a security screening before entering the House building. This is the third time a majority of the evenly split bipartisan panel voted in favor of waiving the metal detector fee since the Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol. In May the Capitol Police issued a report that documented an incident where Foxx set off a metal detector in front of a door to the House chamber....
