Today, I went down to the House Floor to give a one-minute speech to commemorate the life of 17 year old Kyler Williams of Springdale, Arkansas. Kyler was not just a promising athlete, but a young man who touched the lives and hearts of many in his community.
Extremely proud to have the Russellville High School choir in Washington for a choral competition at George Mason University in conjunction with the Presidential Inauguration. Today, I joined them for a tour of The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, where they performed a few songs in the iconic venue. Check out how talented these Cyclones are for yourselves!
Today, FBI Director James Comey recommended to the Department of Justice that no charges be brought against Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information while she was Secretary of State. And yet, in Comey’s own words, the FBI “looked at whether there is evidence classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on that personal system, in violation of a federal statute making it a felony to mishandle classified information either intentionally or in a grossly negligent way… 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information.” The buck has to stop somewhere, and if the head of the State Department cannot be held accountable for proven infractions, I don’t know who can. It is no wonder Americans do not trust the federal government.
