    WASHINGTON, D.C. — In a press conference held in support of Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg yesterday, Democrats vowed to arrest as many political opponents as it would take to defeat fascism. "Fascism is a clear and present danger in this country," began Senator Chuck Schumer, "and the only way to defeat it is with a corrupt, all-powerful police state that can imprison anyone who disagrees with us politically. If we don't do this, fascism will win." "No one is above the law," agreed House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries. "Using campaign funds improperly to pay off someone you slept with is...

    House Minority Leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that there were “serious security concerns” over releasing footage from the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot because former President Donald Trump was fanning “the flames of extremism.” Anchor Dana Bash said, “I want to ask you, switching topics for a second, about Fox host Tucker Carlson because he tweeted yesterday that he’s going to begin airing some of the January 6 footage that he was given exclusive access to, he says, by Speaker McCarthy. Has this, as far as you know, been vetted by the...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) have sent a letter to Fox Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch asking him to stop Fox News personalities from “spreading false election narratives,” warning they could lead to “further acts of political violence.” The Democratic leaders focus on Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has received exclusive access from Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to review security footage from the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol. “We demand that you direct Tucker Carlson and other hosts on your network to stop spreading false election narratives and admit on...

    Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy's decision to release 41,000 hours of video from the Jan 6, 2021 riot at the US Capitol has struck fear into some leading Democrats. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called it "a grave mistake. There were very good reasons why former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) declined to make these videos available for public viewing. I can't tell you why she refused to air them, but trust me, she had good reasons. The American people have to have faith that their government is looking out for their best interests. Widespread viewing of these videos could...

    Election denier Hakeem Jeffries (D-CA), House minority leader, claimed on Tuesday the disclosure of January 6 footage to Fox News’s Tucker Carlson is an “egregious security breach” that demands confirmation of “the precise nature of the video transfer.” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reportedly gave Carlson tens of thousands of hours of footage from the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot, on Monday to air on Fox News in the coming weeks. The cache reportedly contains 41,000 hours of footage.

    House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) said on Friday that “extreme MAGA” Republicans view Social Security as a “Ponzi scheme,” calling on Democrats to work to protect the program. “The Extreme MAGA Republican crowd claims Social Security is a Ponzi scheme. More evidence they want to destroy it. Dems must stop them,” Jeffries tweeted, using an acronym for former President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. The White House and Democrats have been arguing this week with the GOP over whether Social Security and Medicare are at risk as part of some Republican Congress members’ proposals. During his State of...

    House Democrat Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) formally asked Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) this weekend to seat Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Jeffries requested in a letter shared by Punchbowl News that McCarthy “honor past practice” and accept Jeffries’ recommendations of Schiff and Swalwell to the committee. “It is my understanding that you intend to break with the longstanding House tradition of deference to the minority party Intelligence Committee recommendations and deny seats to Ranking Member Schiff and Representative Swalwell,” Jeffries wrote. “The denial of seats to duly elected Members...

    Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) issued a joint statement Friday calling on Congress to avoid a potential default “forced by extreme MAGA Republicans,” the opening salvo in what will be a months-long battle over raising the federal debt limit. Lawmakers in both parties predict the Democratic-controlled White House and Senate are headed for a showdown with newly elected Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) over the debt limit after McCarthy pledged to House conservatives last week to attach spending reforms to debt limit legislation. Schumer and Jeffries called on Republicans to move quickly on...

    Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Thursday ripped Democrat election denier Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) for calling former President Donald Trump a “fake president” who won an “illegitimate” election. Speaking on the Senate floor, McConnell publicly slammed Jeffries for purveying false election claims about 2016, as Jeffries has refuted Trump as “fake” and “illegitimate.” “The newly elected incoming leader of House Democrats is a past election denier who basically said the 2016 election was ‘illegitimate’ and suggested that we had a ‘fake president,’” McConnell said of the new Democrat House leader. “He’s also mounted reckless attacks on our independent judiciary and...
  • Hypocrisy alert: Democrats just chose an election denier as Pelosi’s successor

    House Democrats just picked a successor for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who has decided to give up the gavel at the end of this term. Their choice is Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), a progressive. On the surface, this choice makes sense. However, in one key way, going with Jeffries makes hypocrites out of the Democratic establishment. Why? Well, Democrats have rightly lambasted former President Donald Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election was stolen. They have decried, albeit often painting with far too broad a brush, Republicans as the party of “election deniers” and made the GOP out to...

    House Democrats plan to vote Wednesday on whether election denier Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) will be the next Democrat House leader. Following House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) decision to step down as Democrat leader, House Democrats have scheduled a vote on Wednesday at 9 a.m. to replace her in the position. Jeffries appears to be the chosen Democrat to win the coveted position. A lawyer from central Brooklyn, Jeffries, 52, is a far-left Democrat who appears to have been hand-picked by Pelosi to lead the Democrats in the next Congress. Jeffries was first elected to Congress in 2013 and has...

    Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.), who is expected to lead House Democrats in the next term, pushed back on notions that the caucus is in “disarray” and expressed optimism on Sunday that Democrats will maintain unity in the face of a GOP majority. During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” co-anchor Jake Tapper asked Jeffries about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) telling The New York Times there was “healing that needs to be done in our caucus” after Jeffries emerged as Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) likely successor.

    Bankman-Fried delivered a maximum donation to Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., the current House Democratic Caucus chairman FTX founder and CEO Sam Bankman-Fried donated the maximum amount an individual can give to a candidate to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's, D-Calif., likely successor. Bankman-Fried made a contribution worth $5,800 to Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., in July 2021, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) data. While the amount was relatively tiny compared to the roughly $38 million the crypto entrepreneur funneled to candidates and political action committees (PAC) ahead of the midterm elections, it represented the maximum contribution an individual is allowed to...

    As we previously reported, in the aftermath of Republicans being projected to retake control of the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made it official Thursday in declaring she would “not seek reelection to Democratic leadership in the next Congress.” “For me, the hour’s come for a new generation to lead the Democratic Caucus that I so deeply respect and I’m so grateful that so many are ready and willing to shoulder this awesome responsibility,” Pelosi, who is 82, stated as reports swirled that she was paving the way behind the scenes for Rep.

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Democratic Whip Jim Clyburn (S.C.) announced Thursday they will remain in Congress next year but won’t seek a leadership position, joining Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) who had announced the same decision moments before. The surprise development clears the way for Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), the current chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, to jump several rungs up the leadership ladder to replace Pelosi in the next Congress, when Republicans will take control of the lower chamber.

    Despite a new CBS News poll showing growing concern about inflation and President Biden's handling of the economy, Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries expressed optimism Sunday that his party could still hold on to its narrow majority in Congress in November's midterm elections. The New York lawmaker, who chairs the House Democratic Caucus, told "Face the Nation" that the president's early actions to fight the COVID-19 pandemic helped create millions of new jobs and "rescued the economy." His assessment came shortly after the release of the CBS News/YouGov survey showing that nearly 70% of Americans say the economy is bad —...
