Still no briefing for Senate intel panel on Mueller report: sources

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The only committee of the U.S. Congress running a genuinely bipartisan probe of Russian meddling in U.S. politics has still had no word from the Trump administration on briefing the panel about the Mueller report’s counterintelligence findings, congressional sources said on Wednesday.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election produced counterintelligence reports, which were sent to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice.

Since the mid-April release of the redacted report, the Senate Intelligence Committee has been stonewalled in much the same way the administration has refused to cooperate with other committees, two congressional sources said.

And if you could walk without a limp, and you had $30 in your pocket, you walked right in," said Mae Ngai, a legal and political historian at Columbia University, whose studies focus on immigration.

China accuses US of 'economic terrorism' as trade war tensions escalate

China accused the U.S. of engaging in "economic terrorism" and said the ongoing trade war has "brought huge damage to the economy of other countries and the US itself." Yesterday, Chinese state media issued a similar warning to Washington: "Don't say we didn't warn you." The statements come as China's top economic planning agency said it would be willing to reduce exports of rare earth minerals to the U.S., which are an important part of high-tech manufacturing.

After Mueller Statement, More 2020 Democrats Call for Impeachment

At least 10 Democratic presidential candidates have now endorsed impeachment proceedings against Trump following Mueller's news conference. Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Seth Moulton, Eric Swalwell, Julián Castro, Beto O’Rourke, and Wayne Messam all support impeachment proceedings. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, however, held firm on her belief that impeaching Trump isn't a worthwhile effort without uncovering new evidence "to make such a compelling case, such an ironclad case, that even the Republican Senate — which at the time seems to be not an objective jury — will be convinced of the path that we have to take as a country."

Mueller: Charging Trump Was 'Not An Option We Could Consider'

Robert Mueller declined to clear Trump of obstruction of justice and suggested that only Congress can "formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing" in his first public remarks about his two-year-long investigation of Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. The special counsel noted that "charging the president with a crime was […] not an option we could consider," because Justice Department policy prohibits the indictment of a sitting president. Mueller emphasized that if his office "had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so." Mueller concluded his remarks by reiterating his report's conclusion that "There were multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election. And that allegation deserves the attention of every American."

Mueller underscored that his report did not exonerate the president. In his first public remarks, he said that he did not believe the Justice Department could charge a sitting president with a crime.

#GOPTaxScam2019

It's now official. Congress’s own research arm, the Congressional Research Service, released a report today concluding that the Trump-Republican tax cut was a total bust.

1. It didn't spur economic growth. "The growth effects tend to show a relatively small (if any) first-year effect on the economy."

2. It didn't raise wages. "The real wage rate for production and non-supervisory workers grew by 1.2%."

3. It didn't cause corporations to bring money home. "The data do not appear to show a significant increase in investment flows from abroad."

4. It saved corporations a boat-load of money. "Corporate revenues were about $40 billion less than projected."

5. Corporations used the savings to boost share prices and executive pay, not worker's pay. "While evidence does indicate significant repurchases of shares, either from tax cuts or repatriated revenues, relatively little was directed to paying worker bonuses, which had been announced by some firms."

So there you have it, folks. Trump's one big legislative "achievement" is now, officially, a big nothing burger for Americans but a giant sop to big corporations, CEOs, and the rich. And it will cost $1.9 trillion.

Elaine Chao owns nearly $400,000 of stock in Vulcan Materials Co., a major supplier of materials for road pavement and other construction projects.

Trump moves to escalate the investigation of intel agencies

Trump gave Attorney General William Barr "full and complete authority" to unilaterally declassify government secrets and ordered U.S. intelligence agencies to cooperate with Barr's audit of the Russia investigation. Trump wants Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia investigation and the tactics used by investigators. Trump issued the order just hours after accusing the people who led the investigation of committing treason. Barr has personally met with the heads of U.S. intelligence agencies to discuss his review of the probe. Barr has also said that he believes the Trump campaign was "spied" on.

Trump invokes emergency powers to sidestep congress and sell arms to Saudi Arabia

The Trump administration is preparing to bypass Congress to sell billions of dollars worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The munitions sales are currently on hold by Congress, but Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other political appointees in the White House are urging Trump to invoke an emergency provision that would allow him to prevent Congress from blocking the $7 billion sale of precision-guided missiles and combat aircraft to the Saudis and Emiratis.

Move comes after congress voted to end US support of Saudi military operation in Yemen

We say to the Military Industrial Complex that we will not continue to spend $700 billion a year on the military. We want and need a strong defense. But we do not have to spend more than the next 10 nations combined.

We are going to invest in our veterans. We are going to invest in education. We are going to invest in affordable housing. We are going to invest in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure. But we are not going to invest in never-ending wars.
