    Two House members nearly came to blows and had to be separated by a Capitol staffer after several lawmakers had preached about coming together as Americans. The wild scene took place as lawmakers debated certifying the Electoral votes from Pennsylvania. An altercation reportedly took place between Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) and Rep. Colin Allred (D-TX), though what prompted it remains unclear.

    'FIRING LINE' WITH MARGARET HOOVER: Governor Larry Hogan (R-MD) joins Firing Line to discuss the Trump impeachment inquiry. Hogan addresses reports that he was considering a primary run against the President, discusses the state of the Republican party, and talks about his record as a Republican governor leading a blue state. (snip) Hogan on Trump alienating groups of people: "We're getting to the people where we're losing suburban women, we're losing all minorities. We're alienating every group we possibly can and we're down to a smaller, shrinking base. Now the president seems to be doubling down on that, that kind...

    Its been a long time sense I posted anything and I'm a little rusty but now I feel compelled to reach out for help. Jay Sekulow, Rudy Giuliani, Judicial Watch if any of you read this, please help. I stand ready to file a class action lawsuit against the congress of the United States if they commit the unconstitutional act of filing impeachment charges against President Trump. The constitution says a president can only be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors. So far what they have does not even come close to that requirement. I feel that if they impeach...

    DES MOINES — Democratic presidential candidates descended on Iowa in a flurry of activity this weekend, attending the annual Wing Ding dinner and speaking at the Iowa State Fair, meeting as many voters as they could and kicking off the primary season in earnest. Top-tier candidates like Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders attracted huge crowds who followed their every move as they ate corn dogs and looked at the cow made of butter. And then, more quietly, there was Bill Weld. Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts, arrived at the fair Sunday morning as a drizzly rain started to...

    Activist and media personality the Rev. Al Sharpton criticized President Donald Trump, who has posted multiple tweets bashing Baltimore and U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, while attending an home ownership event Monday at a city church. “He has a particular venom for blacks and people of color," Sharpton said of Trump, speaking outside New Shiloh Baptist Church in West Baltimore. He stood in front of a banner bearing the logo of his National Action Network and the slogan “No Justice, No Peace.” “He is playing a race-divisive card," Sharpton said of the president. "We are here to talk about how we...

    Michelle Obama is a master in the subtle art of shade. The former first lady took to Twitter Saturday to honor a step-dancing team from Baltimore, just hours after President Donald Trump attacked a prominent African-American congressman and referred to his Baltimore district as a "disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess." "On #NationalDanceDay, I'm shouting out the Lethal Ladies, a Baltimore STEP team who I saw perform back in 2017. I'm so proud of you all—and everyone who's dancing today!" Obama wrote.

    The late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) listed off the names of dictators while watching President Trump's inauguration, according to Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.). HuffPost reported that during a campaign event in Iowa, the 2020 Democratic presidential contender told the crowd of more than 200 about sitting next to McCain and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) during Trump's inaugural address. “I sat on that stage between Bernie and John McCain, and John McCain kept reciting to me names of dictators during that speech because he knew more than any of us what we were facing as a nation,” she said. “He understood...

    Democratic presidential hopeful John Delaney wants to hit President Donald Trump where it hurts — his Twitter following. In a Wednesday tweet, Delaney called for everyone to unfollow the president, as part of a broader campaign against the White House’s Twitter obsession. The unfollowing campaign comes after a closed-door meeting between Trump and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Tuesday afternoon. In a statement, Twitter said that the meeting was scheduled to discuss the 2020 US elections and the platform’s response to the opioid crisis, but shortly after the meeting was confirmed, reports surfaced from the Daily Beast and The Washington...

    Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said in a recent interview that he hopes somebody runs against President Trump in the 2020 election, and that Trump supporters' continued chants of "lock her up" — typically in reference to Hillary Clinton — are "disturbing." In his retirement interview with C-SPAN, Flake said the chants, which were sparked by Trump's campaign and have continued throughout his presidency, are more concerning than the controversial things Trump says. "The disturbing thing isn’t so much what [Trump] says anymore, it’s the cheers from people behind him and the chants of, 'Lock her up!' for example that’s just...

    One of the country's most popular Republican governors on Thursday called for an independent investigation into the allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and said the Senate should hold off on a vote. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker made the comments as Professor Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh sexually and physically assaulted here. "The accusations brought against Judge Kavanaugh are sickening and deserve an independent investigation," Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker tweeted. "There should be no vote in the Senate." Baker, who faces re-election this November, is one of only a few Republican governors,...

    Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley was in Davenport on Saturday, saying controversies in the White House are pushing unaligned voters to the left in a way that will help Democrats in this year’s midterm elections. “The crazier things get out of that Trump White House, the more independents look our way, and they’re coming our way strong,” O’Malley told more than 40 people at Scott County Democratic headquarters. O’Malley said that President Donald Trump has been a great recruitment tool for Democrats, and this year’s midterms are a chance to push back on the 2016 losses. “Great countries sometimes make...

    As we all know, Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her family to leave on June 22. The owner of Red Hen, Stephanie Wilkinson, explained to The Washington Post that some of her staff were uncomfortable, including the LGBT staffers, due to Sanders support of a ban on transgender people in the military and a gay couple being refused to have a wedding cake baked for them because of religion. Wilkinson told The Washington Post that she pulled Sanders to the side and politely asked her to leave, saying, “I explained that...

    We’ve seen Rep. Elijah Cummings in full emotional outcry before this. He was there, in the streets of his West Baltimore home district, in the televised riots that followed the death of Freddie Grey a few years ago, when tears ran down Cummings’ face and he begged America to understand the plight of young and impoverished black men. And now we see him pleading for some sense of humanity over the lives of young immigrant children, frightened and weeping, separated from their parents over America’s “zero tolerance” at the U.S. border. Cummings is man whose conscience is always on full...

    According to former Maryland governor and 2016 presidential candidate Martin O’Malley, former President Obama, the Democratic National Committee, and the Clintons bear responsibility for miscalculations that weakened the Democratic party in recent elections. “What is happening now is the party is regenerating itself, almost like after a bad forest fire,” O’Malley told ABC News’ Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl and Political Director Rick Klein on the Powerhouse Politics podcast. He says the “fire” started in 2008. He believes Obama squandered the energy of his candidacy. “Rather than infusing that energy into the veins of the Democratic party and making...

    Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland will be the keynote speaker at an upcoming event organized by a group called Duty to Warn. Duty to Warn has called for President Trump’s removal from office under the 25th Amendment on the grounds that he is not psychologically fit to serve. From the Hill: Raskin is expected to discuss legislation he introduced earlier this year to establish an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity that can determine if the president is incapacitated. His bill currently has 31 co-sponsors, all of whom are Democrats. Under the Constitution’s 25th Amendment, the vice president and a majority...

    *Well now, the situation with the White House and African American political leaders is getting real interesting with Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings saying he’s “happy” to sit down with President Trump. Even though Cummings has no problem meeting with Trump, but he disputes the president’s assertion that he didn’t want to meet up, adding that, after all, Trump “is my president.” Thursday afternoon Cummings – who serves on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee – spoke with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer who inquired if he would go over to the White House “ASAP” if he were to get a call...

    Marylanders are getting their first opportunity to cast ballots in early voting in the hotly contested presidential election between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump today.

In Baltimore, lines at some early voting centers took more than an hour to navigate. In Carroll and Howard counties, more than 50 voters were lined up outside some early voting centers before polls opened at 8 a.m. At one polling place...

    Donald Trump will be in Baltimore Monday to speak to a conference of National Guard officers at the Convention Center, The Baltimore Sun reports. Although Maryland currently has a Republican governor, who has said he does not plan to vote for Trump or Hillary Clinton in the November election, it is traditionally a blue state. And an OpinionWorks poll released earlier this week shows that Clinton has a strong lead. Trump has campaigned in Maryland before during this election. That was all the way back in April, when he had not yet won the Republican nomination, although he was a...

    Wikileaks's ongoing series meant to discredit Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has certainly shaken up the party she's representing. The leak of nearly 20,000 DNC emails released on Friday brought to light improbable political tactics as well as called into question the Democrats' support of one of their own: Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who had been campaigning for the nomination until he endorsed Clinton at a joint rally July 12. One of the more surprising items to emerge from the DNC dump is political operatives' treatment of Black Lives Matter activist and former Baltimore mayoral candidate Deray McKesson. In an email...
