My Q/A today with Attorney General Loretta Lynch about Hillary Clinton's email scandal. The law is supposed to treat everyone the same, but Lynch treated the Clinton case differently.
During today's Benghazi committee press conference I summarized what I consider some of the most important takeaways from the report. Here's the video. To read the Jordan/Pompeo additional views report, click here: http://jordan.house.gov/uploadedfiles/19_jordan_and_pompeo_additional_views.pdf
Yesterday I called for the Judiciary Committee to hold hearings about former FBI Director James Comey's testimony that former AG Loretta Lynch directed him to downplay the reopened Clinton email investigation last fall. Remember, the Justice Department wouldn't appoint a special counsel for the IRS targeting scandal or the Clinton email scandal. But as soon as James Comey's reputation is on the line, they appointed one. This is incredible, and why we need to hold hearings.
Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act. This bill is a nationally popular piece of legislation that ensures no taxpayer dollars are used to pay for the taking of innocent life. The vast majority of Americans support this common-sense policy, and it’s time for Congress to recognize that fact by sending this bill to President Trump’s desk. Link
The Paris accord is a treaty that should have had a vote in the Senate. President Trump did the right thing by withdrawing us from an agreement that was not properly ratified. The Paris treaty would hurt American companies and American workers by depressing economic output, keep companies from creating jobs and drive millions more out of the country. To top it off, the Paris treaty would ultimately have little effect on our environment. At a time when American companies are already successfully reducing their carbon emissions, we don’t need another government regulation restricting our economy’s ability to grow. Link
