ON CNN, Susan Hennessey brought up the Mueller report and the conclusions the special counsel reached about Russian interference before saying, “Moving forward for the 2020 election, I don’t know anybody who can make the claim that everybody is not fully aware that accepting this kind of information isn’t a criminal violation. This was also an open invitation for foreign countries to now interfere in the U.S. election.”

  • CNN anchor Chris Cuomo Wednesday rejected the idea that the Hillary Clinton campaign accepted dirt on then-candidate Donald Trump from a foreign government during the 2016 election, saying there isn’t “any proof” of it. Pro-Trump commentator ROB ASTORINO expressed that the president was “wrong” but pointed out what he described as a “double standard” between the uproar of what Trump “might do in 2020 as opposed to the former secretary of state, who “did do it.” CNN panelist VAN JONES dismissed Astorino’s commentary as him being on the “‘what about Hillary Clinton’ bandwagon”  “Look, it’s just not apples to apples,” CHRIS CUOMO argued. “We don’t have any proof that Russia as a government came and said ‘here’s value for you on Donald Trump and you can pay us for it if you like.’ We have the opposite proof, which is that they came time and time again with things they thought would help Trump and put it out there and his people around him were only too eager to try to get more of it.”


7am – A         INTERVIEW – HANS VON SPAKOVSKY – Manager, Election Law Reform Initiative and Senior Legal Fellow at the The Heritage Foundation – discussed the fight over the census citizenship question and the contempt vote.

  • Ocasio-Cortez says administration ‘magically added’ citizenship question to census
  • AOC: “Unspeakable horrors have been executed by the United States in the name of citizenship, in the name of determining who is a citizen, and by citizen we mean who is a person in our democracy…It is an acknowledgment of person-hood in American democracy.”
  • House panel votes to hold attorney general, commerce secretary in contempt over census probe, the next step toward a court battle. (Washington Post) – President Trump lashed out Wednesday against a widening web of congressional probes that demonstrated the limits of his strategy to declare victory and try to move past the 22-month special counsel investigation into Russian interference that has consumed much of his presidency. Yet Trump’s latest efforts to defend himself ran into new obstacles as a House panel moved to hold two Cabinet officials — Attorney General William P. Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross — in contempt of Congress over the administration’s efforts to shield documents related to its decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. The committee vote came several hours after Trump asserted executive privilege over the material related to the 2020 Census. By day’s end, there was more potential bad news for the White House as Hope Hicks, the president’s longtime adviser who left last year, agreed to become the first former aide to testify next week for a House Judiciary Committee probe into whether the president sought to obstruct the Russia investigation.

7am – B/C     Stacey Abrams visits Hollywood to urge against boycott over Georgia’s ‘heartbeat’ abortion law. (Fox News) — Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams flew to Los Angeles this week to encourage Hollywood executives and industry officials not to go through with boycotting Georgia over the state’s new heartbeat abortion law. The film industry has threatened to boycott Georgia due to the controversial law, which makes abortions illegal once a fetal heartbeat can be detected. That typically occurs around six weeks into a pregnancy, often before women realize they are pregnant.  Though she doesn’t hold office, Abrams told Atlanta’s WSB-TV that her “mission is to make sure these jobs stay in Georgia.”  She met with executives, producers, actors and low-level behind-the-scenes staffers to convince them that pulling business from Georgia would be premature. “I don’t disparage boycotts. They have their function. But this is a situation where the political realities are that a boycott won’t have the intended effect,” she told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

  • Sen. Bernie Sanders: “Economic rights are human rights, and that is what I mean by Democratic Socialism”
  • Sanders: “While President Trump and his fellow oligarchs for our support of #DemocraticSocialism, they don’t really oppose all forms of socialism. They may hate Democratic Socialism because it benefits working people but they absolutely love corporate socialism.”

8am – A          INTERVIEW –  Ja’Ron Smith – Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy Director of the Office of American Innovation – previewed the White House’s event today.

  • After the First STEP Act, Second Chance Hiring: Event with the President to highlight the administration’s Second Chance Hiring initiative.  
  • Second Chance Hiring – an opportunity for those with criminal records to be considered for jobs – flows naturally from the First STEP Act.
  • This will be a meeting with Governors, CEO’s and others who are working to help integrate individuals who exit the federal prison system. Efforts to integrate the formerly incarcerated can pay huge dividends: they lower the number who return to crime, which lowers future incarceration costs and promotes economic and social benefits. Whether a formerly incarcerated individual finds a job is the biggest determinant of whether that person returns to crime.

8am – E         Nationals Announcer Blames Home Run Spike on Global Warming

Washington Nationals announcer F.P. Santangelo suggested during Tuesday night’s loss to the Chicago White Sox that “global warming” is contributing to the historic pace of home runs so far this season. “I think the bats, plus the balls, plus launch angles, plus pitchers throwing hard, plus global warming is why there’s so many home runs,” Santangelo said in the fifth inning, just after White Sox rookie Eloy Jimenez hit a monster home run to centerfield.
