Jamie Raskin Demands All Secret Service Records On People Who Had Access To Trump And Pence’s Homes



House Oversight Committee ranking member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) sent a letter to the Secret Service demanding any documents related to people who had access to Trump and Pence’s homes.

Rep. Raskin wrote:

The Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating former President Donald Trump’s and former Vice President Mike Pence’s mishandling of sensitive, highly classified documents. Last August, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) retrieved thousands of government documents from former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, including hundreds of documents with classified markings, after he rejected multiple requests to
voluntarily turn the records over to the federal government.

Just last week, news reports revealed that attorneys for former Vice President Pence discovered approximately a dozen documents with classified markings at his home in Carmel, Indiana. Given that the U.S. Secret Service provided protection for Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence during the time they stored classified
materials at their respective residences, the Committee is seeking information from your agency regarding who had access to former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club and former Vice President Pence’s personal residence since leaving office.

The Secret Service does not maintain visitor logs to private homes, so what Raskin is asking for is any documents that would show who had access to the homes, because those people could also have access to government documents and classified information.

House Republicans are going to attempt to make the Biden classified documents situation a major scandal, while ignoring Trump and Pence. House Republicans should be joining with Democrats to investigate all of these instances of classified documents being found in private homes.

The Biden and Pence situations appear to be different from Trump’s. Biden and Pence seem to have inadvertently ended up with documents in their homes. There is a case to be made that Trump knowingly stole documents, lied, and refused to give them back.

Rep. Raskin is not about to allow Republicans to play games and minimize Trump and Pence while attacking President Biden.

Trump Gets Defended From Alvin Bragg Prosecution by … Andrew Cuomo?



When it comes to the Alvin Bragg prosecution, Trump has found an unlikely defender in former New York governor and Democrat, Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo said that the case is all about politics, and obviously he is right. It’s just surprising to hear such a common sense opinion coming from someone who has been so openly critical of Trump.

It’s possible that there are lots of other Democrats who know this in their hearts, but can’t say it out loud.

FOX News reports:

Andrew Cuomo blasts Manhattan DA Bragg’s Trump probe: ‘I think it’s all politics’

Former Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg over his focus on potentially prosecuting former President Donald Trump and suggested the move is politically motivated.

“I don’t understand why Bragg is putting such emphasis on this case,” the former governor told WABC Radio on Friday night.

“A person breaks the law I get it, but on the state side this is a misdemeanor case. It’s really a federal case because he needs it to be a campaign finance fraud case which is a federal case and that’s what Bragg is going to have to do to get a felony out of this.”

Cuomo said that the public is generally “cynical” and “when they see prosecutors bringing these political cases” it just “affirms everybody’s cynicism.”

“I think it’s all politics and that’s what I think the people of this country are saying,” Cuomo continued. “It just feeds that anger and that cynicism and the partisanship. It’s a coincidence that Bragg goes after Trump and Tish James goes after Trump and Georgia goes after Trump? That’s all a coincidence? I think it feeds the cynicism and that’s the cancer in our body politic right now.”

Who had this on their Bingo card? Anyone?

Congratulations to Mr. Cuomo for getting something right.

Chuck Schumer Claims Republican Bill Supporting Parents’ Rights in Education is ‘Orwellian’



This week, House Republicans passed a bill that aims to give parents more control over the education of their children by increasing transparency.

Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer has called the bill Orwellian. Why must Democrats always engage in projection?

Parents have every right to know what their children are being exposed to in schools. Especially public schools which are built and run on tax dollars provided by parents!

ABC News describes the bill:

House GOP passes Parents Bill of Rights Act

House Republicans narrowly passed the Parents Bill of Rights Act on Friday, sending the proposal along to the Senate, where it is highly unlikely to receive a vote.

H.R. 5 passed in a 213-208 vote Friday morning, with five Republicans — Reps. Andy Biggs, Ken Buck, Matt Gaetz, Mike Lawler and Matt Rosendale — joining all Democrats to vote against the measure. Rep. Julia Letlow, R-La., the bill’s sponsor, shook hands and fist bumped rejoicing members upon the bill’s passage.

“Today was a win for every mother or father, but most importantly for every student in America,” Speaker Kevin McCarthy said at a press conference following the vote, noting thousands of parents supported the bill.

Backers of the bill say H.R. 5 has five core principles: Parents have the right to know what their children are being taught, to be heard, to see the school budget and spending, to protect their children’s privacy and to keep their children safe.

“It is not an attempt to have Congress dictate their [schools] curriculum, or determine the books in the library,” Letlow explained. “Instead, this bill aims to bring more transparency and accountability to education, allowing parents to be informed and when they have questions and concerns to lawfully bring to their local school board,” she said.

And here is Chuck Schumer:

Does Schumer even hear himself?

Schumer is just protecting his precious supporters in the teacher unions.

Resolution By House Republicans To Remove Kamala Harris As Border Czar



What exactly does Vice President Kamala Harris do all day? Even Harris herself is baffled when asked to describe her job duties.

With Harris at the helm in her role as border czar, the border crisis has only gotten worse.

When Harris once accidentally went near the border, she travelled instead to a groundbreaking of a 125-mile-long transmission line that will transport wind and solar energy, not to the southern border where millions pour across trafficking drugs, weapons, and humans.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has repeated the claim that the “border is secure” despite the fact that 5 million illegals have flooded across the border in the first two years of the Biden administration.

TGP reported that US Border Patrol Chief Raúl Ortiz, testifying before congressional Republicans at the border in McAllen, Texas, defied DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and President Biden by saying the border is in “crisis” and the US does not have control of its border.

Now, Congressional Republicans have introduced a resolution calling for Harris to be removed from her position as border czar.

On Friday, Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX)  reintroduced the resolution which states:

Resolved, That the House of Representatives urges the Biden administration to:

 (1) remove Vice President Kamala Harris as the head of any executive branch task force or strategy relating to immigration;

(2) appoint an experienced and competent leader to replace Vice President Kamala Harris as the head of the Biden administration’s strategy to address the root causes of migration;

(3) recognize that border security is national security;

(4) immediately provide U.S. Customs and Border Protection with the adequate support and resources to do their job effectively and adequately;

(5) immediately reinistate the Migrant Protection Protocols;

(6) take action to protect American communities from fentanyl; and

(7) stop allowing politics in Washington to cloud their judgment regarding policies implemented at the southern border.


The Daily Caller Reports:

Republican Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson on Friday reintroduced a resolution, first obtained by the Daily Caller, that calls for Vice President Kamala Harris to be removed from her position as border czar.

Friday marks two years since President Joe Biden appointed Harris as head of the border crisis, something Republicans are saying she and the president have completely failed to handle.

“Kamala Harris has done nothing to ‘address the root cause of migration’ or stop the influx of illegal immigrants coming across our border daily. She continues to sit by as the number of illegal immigrants coming across our border skyrockets, fentanyl deaths explode, and CBP officers are left to fend for themselves. She has completely betrayed the American people by blatantly disregarding her duties as Border Czar,” Jackson told the Caller before introducing the resolution.

“Enough is enough! President Biden must remove Kamala Harris and replace her with someone who will put Americans first and stop the crisis at our southern border. Politics should never compromise our national security. We need change now!,” Jackson added.
