    House Republicans took revenge on their Democrat colleagues for voting with eight Republican lawmakers to oust Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as speaker of the House. Just hours after the House voted Tuesday on the motion to vacate the speakership, House Speaker pro-tempore Patrick McHenry (R-NC) kicked Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from her Capitol Building hideaway office. A video circulating on X showed Pelosi’s office being vacated just after Republican leadership gave the order. Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), the second-ranking member of the House Democrat leadership, was also asked to vacate his hideaway office in retaliation on Wednesday.

    House Republicans have told Rep. Steny Hoyer to vacate his Capitol hideaway office, the former majority leader's office confirmed Wednesday. The move comes as acting speaker Rep. Patrick McHenry ordered former Speaker Nancy Pelosi to vacate her Capitol hideaway office too, as POLITICO first reported. Former House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn did not have an office in the Capitol this Congress, his office said.

    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.

    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...

    Democratic anger and desperation have reached the boiling point as polling shows Republicans appear poised to take control of Congress on Tuesday. House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn embodied those feelings by lashing out against Republican candidates running on election integrity on Sunday. Clyburn told Fox News Sunday host Shannon Bream that these candidates are causing “a deterioration of democracy” and creating an environment akin to 1930s Germany and Italy. “I taught history and I’m telling you what I see here are parallels to what the history was in Germany, in Italy.” Advertisement - story continues below Bream then asked Clyburn...

    Scurrying and sneaking, each looking for some Democrat godfather's blessing, the race to be King 'Rat is on. The battle to be King 'Rat among the rapidly sinking Democrats is now going full steam. According to Politico: The race to succeed Speaker Nancy Pelosi as the leader of House Democrats may have been clinched at a meeting in the Capitol on Sept. 1. That’s when House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn of South Carolina and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries of New York slipped back to Washington to connect in Clyburn’s office during the summer congressional recess at Jeffries’ request. Jeffries, the fifth-ranking...

    Trump administration aides “usurped control of CDC communications and blocked public health officials from providing accurate information about the coronavirus to the American people,” the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, led by Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn, said in a report released Monday. In its third wide-ranging investigation on the government response to the coronavirus pandemic, Democratic officials spoke with several senior officials who were at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention including former Director Dr. Robert Redfield, who said the Trump officials blocked the department from conveying information to Americans early on in the pandemic. The...

    The hill ^ | 05/20/2022 | Caroline Vakil House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) said “the country is in danger of imploding” while weighing in on the Buffalo, N.Y., shooting and the mood of Black voters in a wide-ranging interview published Friday. “It’s just a mystery to me that we’ve become so tolerable of these kinds of incidents,” Clyburn told The Washington Post in an interview published in its Early 202 newsletter, referring to last weekend’s shooting in a predominantly Black neighborhood that left 10 people dead and three injured.

    Washington, D.C. (May 9, 2022) – Today, Rep. James E. Clyburn, Chairman of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, issued the following statement after a staff briefing by Dr. Peter Marks, Director for the Center of Biologics Evaluation and Research at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), on the status of coronavirus vaccine candidates for young children that took place on the afternoon of May 6. The briefing followed Chairman Clyburn’s April 25 letter to FDA Commissioner Dr. Robert M. Califf after reports emerged that the agency was considering delaying its review of the first coronavirus vaccine for children...

    Episode reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's collapse during failed 2016 campaign Citizens expressed concern Tuesday after footage emerged of a "visibly shaken" Elizabeth Warren clinging to a staffer's hand for dear life while attempting to walk several yards to a waiting vehicle. Even with the staffer's assistance, the Democratic lawmaker nearly stumbled on several occasions as reporters shouted questions about abortion. "Does she have Parkinson's or something?" a concerned American asked the Washington Free Beacon after viewing the footage of Warren. "Why does she need a staffer to hold her hand while walking?" The voting public deserves an honest answer. Warren,...

    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.

    President Joe Biden referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President Harris” during a speech at South Carolina State University on Friday. The president spoke about the importance of Historic Black Colleges and Universities, noting that Harris was a graduate of Howard University. “Of course, President Harris is a proud Howard alum,” Biden said, without correcting himself. Biden spoke at South Carolina State University’s 2021 Commencement Ceremony to recognize Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), crediting him for saving his presidential campaign. The president spent a part of his speech accusing the United States of ongoing systemic racism against black people, including...

    Senior House Democrats on Tuesday aggressively pushed their caucus to fall in line behind next week’s key budget vote, hoping to quell a rank-and-file rebellion that threatens to at least temporarily derail President Joe Biden’s economic agenda. “We have to hold firm. We have to stay together,” Rep. Peter said … The centrists’ threat against the budget is the latest iteration of a long-running tug of war between moderates and progressives in the Democratic Caucus. And with just a three-vote margin in the House, that rift could tank Biden’s entire domestic agenda if Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team...

    House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will not be able to block President Joe Biden’s agenda because he was a”miserable failure” at his stated goal of making former President Barack Obama a one-term president. In a video, McConnell said, “100% of my focus is standing up to this administration. What we have in the United States Senate is total unity from Susan Collins to Ted Cruz in opposition to what the new Biden administration is trying to do to this country.” Anchor Jake Tapper said,...

    House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that if the Republican Party removes Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) from her leadership role, it would be “classic cancel culture.” Anchor Jake Tapper said, “Let’s talk about the big lie which you just brought up and what’s happening across the aisle in the House. Republicans are set to remove Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney from her leadership role because of her refusal to spread President Trump’s big lie that the election was stolen. These inarguably more conservative than Elise Stefanik poised to replace her. It seems to...

    The measures, similar to ones passed by the House in 2019, are again not expected to pass in the Senate. The Democrat-controlled House on Thursday afternoon passed the second of two gun-control measure, extending the review period for background checks by roughly one week. The bipartisan bill, which passed 219-210, would extend the review period for background checks from three to 10 days. Democratic South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn introduced the so-called "Charleston loophole" legislation. In 2015, a shooter killed nine people at a Charleston, S.C., church. The FBI said afterward that a background check examiner never saw the shooter’s...

    Nancy Pelosi has been reelected speaker of the House by her caucus for the next session of Congress, marking what will be her fourth term with the gavel. The caucus vote was conducted virtually, but Pelosi was approved with a voice vote. Pelosi, 80, did not not face any challenge for her post, but she will also need to secure a simple majority — 218 Democratic votes — by the full House of Representatives in January to be sworn in again as speaker. In 2019, several Democrats voted for someone other than her on the floor, but with a slimmer...

    House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn compared the current attempts by the Republican party to contest the election results to 'what Hitler did in Germany'. The South Carolina congressman was speaking with CNN's Chris Cuomo on Tuesday night when he claimed that he's beginning to see similarities between 1930s Germany and Trump's America. The 80-year-old politician, who was born a year after the start of World War II, asked how a person elected could suddenly be given the 'authority to be a dictator' and said he made the comparison was because Trump also 'discredited the news media' in attempts to...

    The first completely digital Democratic National Convention in American history kicked off Monday night, gifting CNN and MSNBC viewers two hours of the Democratic message, and CNN, MSNBC, and Fox viewers with all or much of the second hour. Designed to be part concert, part political commercial, and part digital pep rally, the evening contained easily recognized aspects of a normal rally as well as some surprising imagery for a 2020 Democratic Convention, but above all fell flat, coming across as both dour and canned, and suffering greatly from the absence of a boisterous crowd.Politicians giving speeches peppered with...
