 House Judiciary Committee Holds First Impeachment Hearing
Professor Jonathan Turley, who testified during Wednesday's hearing that he voted for both Barack Obama (2008, 2012) and Hillary Clinton (2016), and disagrees with President Trump on almost every other issue, was very clear:

“The record does not establish obstruction in this case… if you accept all of their presumptions, it would be obstruction. But impeachments have to be based on proof, NOT presumptions.”

And the circus continues…

 Congress Must Pass the USMCA
The USMCA impacts nearly every American industry. We have waited for more than a year to vote on this bipartisan bill that will push America forward. The support is there - why haven't we voted to pass this bill?
Thanks to Congressmen Jodey Arrington, Kevin Brady, and Henry Cuellar for hosting Thursday's press conference.

House Passes Robocall Bill
Robocalls have hindered all of our lives for too long - but consequences are on the way. The House nearly unanimously (417-3) passed the TRACED Act (S. 151) earlier this week that will empower the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to penalize those responsible for illegal robocalls.

This bill would allow the FCC to fine those making calls with misleading caller identification, a practice known as "spoofing." Under the TRACED Act, the FCC could fine spoofing or robocall violators as much as $10,000 per violation, with additional penalties of as much as $10,000 for intentional violations.
House Democrats Continue to Show "Fairness" During Impeachment Probe
On Monday - less than 48 hours away from the House Judiciary Committee’s first impeachment hearing - Republicans STILL did not know what three scholars (to our one) would be testifying. No wonder the President continues to refuse to participate – these hearings are a joke.

Sending Christmas Cards Overseas
Often, our troops spend the holidays separated from their friends and loved ones. To show my appreciation for this sacrifice and the many others selflessly made to defend our nation, I proudly joined the American Red Cross this week in writing Christmas cards to send overseas to our brave warriors.
 Remembering Pearl Harbor
Yesterday, 78 years ago, hundreds of Japanese aircraft launched a ferocious attack on American troops stationed in Pearl Harbor.

Our brave soldiers didn’t give up - the sleeping giant woke up.

May we always remember this date - which will forever live in infamy - and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice as well as those who answer the call to defend and preserve America’s freedom.
