  + stars: | 2021-06-13 | by ( Susan Cornwell | ) www.reuters.com + 0.00   time to read: +5 min
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The top two Democrats in the U.S. Congress on Sunday vowed to probe the “rogue” actions of the Justice Department during former President Donald Trump’s term, including its move to seize the communications records of Democratic lawmakers. The Justice Department under former attorneys general William Barr and Jeff Sessions was regularly accused of putting Trump’s personal and political interests ahead of the law. “The Justice Department has been rogue under President Trump, understand that, in so many respects. The New York Times on Thursday reported that the Trump-era Justice Department subpoenaed Apple Inc for data on Schiff and Swalwell. Senator Susan Collins, one of that chamber’s most moderate Republicans, said on Sunday that she supported the Justice Department’s internal probe.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell also told the group his was open to their ideas, Republicans said. Schumer said work was still progressing on two tracks - one a bipartisan infrastructure bill and the other a measure that if brought to the floor, could pass with only Democratic votes through a maneuver called reconciliation that bypasses the rule requiring 60 votes for bills to advance. Biden and Schumer have talked about such a two-track approach“I was told verbally, stuff, I’ve asked for paper, I’ll look at it,” Schumer said. He and Democratic Senator Jon Tester also spoke of a provision that might raise revenue by having the Internal Revenue Service go after tax cheats. In the latest bipartisan discussions, Republican lawmakers said the group reached tentative conclusions on specific spending provisions that it would pay for without raising taxes.

WASHINGTON — A Republican filibuster Friday of an independent commission to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol sparked outrage among Senate Democrats ranging from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to centrist West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin. “We have seen the limits of bipartisanship and the resurgence of Republican obstructionism,” Schumer told reporters after the Jan. 6 commission vote, which won 54 senators. Among Democrats, the debate over the filibuster is about whether it promotes bipartisanship or hinders necessary action. McConnell, who was under pressure from former President Donald Trump, successfully pushed his caucus to filibuster the Jan. 6 commission legislation. And he knows that.”In a statement, Manchin called the commission filibuster “unconscionable” after Democrats “accepted the proposed changes from Republicans” on how to structure a commission.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two U.S. Senate Democrats known for independent streaks urged Republicans on Tuesday to support a bipartisan commission into the deadly January attack on the Capitol, after one in six House Republicans broke with party leadership and backed the probe. Some 35 House Republicans here joined Democrats last week in voting to pass the legislation that would create a bipartisan commission modeled on the one Congress passed following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Passage of the bill was an easier achievement in the House of Representatives, where Democrats hold a 219-211 majority. “We implore our Senate Republican colleagues to work with us to find a path forward.”Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and other top Senate Republicans have spoken out against the House bill, saying that ongoing probes by two Senate committees are sufficient investigation. Republican Senator Bill Cassidy said he was reserving judgment until he sees the final bill.

The bipartisan “Endless Frontier” measure was scheduled to be debated by the Senate Commerce Committee on Wednesday, having been formally introduced on April 21. A spokesman for Senator Maria Cantwell, who chairs the Commerce Committee, did not immediately comment Monday night. Many lawmakers want to use the legislation to advance other priorities and attach additional proposals. Senators Gary Peters and John Thune want to use the bill to speed the deployment of thousands of self-driving cars. Republican Representative Mike Gallagher, another sponsor, said U.S. superiority in science and technology “is at risk.

Senate to start debate over Asian American hate crime bill
  + stars: | 2021-04-14 | by ( The Associated Press | ) www.nbcnews.com + 0.00   time to read: +5 min
Typically, the Democratic-sponsored Covid-19 Hate Crimes Act might quickly face a filibuster, opposed by Republicans who prefer a different approach. “For more than a year, the Asian American community has been fighting two crises — the Covid-19 pandemic and the anti-Asian hate,” Rep. Grace Meng, D-N.Y., a co-author of the bill, said Tuesday at the Capitol. Senate Republicans have panned the legislation for various shortcomings but have signaled they will not block it with a filibuster. Several Republican senators indicated they would prefer to adjust the hate crimes legislation, but they are reluctant to exercise the filibuster on this bill. Though timely, the legislation is also modest, what supporters see as a first step in a federal response to the rise of Asian American hate crimes.

Republicans say the plan is dominated by spending unrelated to traditional infrastructure and reject a proposal to finance the initiative by raising taxes on U.S. corporations. Biden has begun to host bipartisan groups of lawmakers at the White House to discuss infrastructure in an effort to win Republican support. But Democrats have said they will move forward without Republicans through a legislative process called reconciliation if their opposition continues. “If Republicans let us get on the bill, we can work out a process to have bipartisan debate and amendments,” Schumer said.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The Democratic-controlled U.S. Senate is expected to take its first step forward on President Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion infrastructure package next week, while Senate Republicans are preparing a narrower proposal less than one-third the size. “The water infrastructure bill is a small but important part of that overall effort,” Schumer said in a floor speech, adding the measure had unanimous bipartisan support from the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Eight members of a bipartisan group of House of Representatives lawmakers known as the “Problem Solvers Caucus” discussed infrastructure Wednesday with White House officials. Several lawmakers urged the White House to consider a more “manageable” and traditional infrastructure package, participant Republican Representative Dusty Johnson told Reuters. Biden has started to meet bipartisan groups of lawmakers at the White House in an effort to win Republican support for his infrastructure plan.

The bill, which comes after a spate of high-profile attacks on Asian Americans, designates a Justice Department employee to expedite a review of hate crimes reported to police during the COVID-19 pandemic. Several Republican senators told reporters that they expected the bill to move past the initial step. One possible bipartisan amendment could be the addition of the “No Hate Act,” which was introduced by Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal in 2017. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said he was open to considering. But such a move has yet to gain support from all Democratic senators or President Joe Biden.

The debate puts Biden, who campaigned on reversing most of Trump's tax moves, including the SALT caps, in the unusual spot of siding against reversing a Trump policy. But so far, those lawmakers who want to reverse this particular Trump policy aren't budging. Proponents of keeping SALT caps, including progressives, have pointed to the fact that their removal would disproportionately benefit the wealthy. “It’s impossible to deny that Republicans when they fashioned their tax bill, were quick to try to use wedge issues wherever possible,” Totten said. Prior to the cap, the average SALT deduction in New Jersey had been upwards of $19,000, according to the Tax Policy Center.

In an urgent phone call to the acting defense secretary, he issued a startling demand. “We must establish order,” said Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in a call with Pentagon leaders. Lawmakers, protected to this day by National Guard troops, will hear from the inspector general of the Capitol Police this coming week. According to the Pentagon's plans, the acting defense secretary would only be notified if the crowd swelled beyond 20,000. There, they would prepare to head to the Capitol once Miller, the acting defense secretary, gave final approval.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden is expected to nominate three prosecutors to run the U.S. attorney’s offices in New York state, including the first Black man to run the Southern District of New York in Manhattan and the first Black woman to head the Western District in Buffalo. The Brooklyn-born Peace worked under former Attorney General Loretta Lynch when she was U.S. attorney in the Eastern District, based in Brooklyn. Ross, a longtime federal prosecutor, is expected to run the office in the Buffalo-based Western District. I am particularly proud to recommend the first African American to lead what many consider the most consequential prosecutorial office in America, the Southern District,” he added. Brooklyn federal prosecutors have been examining the state’s handling of COVID-19 outbreaks in nursing homes in a probe that drew public attention after a top aide to New York Gov.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives will deliver an impeachment charge against former President Donald Trump to the Senate on Monday, rejecting Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s request for a delay. “The House will deliver the article of impeachment to the Senate.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial will begin during the week of Feb. 8, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Friday, after the House of Representatives formally delivers the impeachment charge to the chamber on Monday. Schumer said House impeachment managers - serving as prosecutors in the Senate trial - and Trump’s defense team would have time to prepare between the time the single article of impeachment accusing Trump of inciting an insurrection is delivered on Monday and the start of the trial. Schumer became the chamber’s leader this week after Democrats won two Georgia U.S. Senate runoff elections earlier in the month. “This impeachment began with an unprecedentedly fast and minimal process over in the House,” McConnell said on Friday. Senate rules had called for an impeachment trial to begin at 1 p.m. on the day after articles of impeachment are delivered to the upper legislative chamber of Congress, except for Sundays.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The leaders of the U.S. Senate agreed on Friday to push back former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial by two weeks, giving the chamber more time to focus on President Joe Biden’s legislative agenda and Cabinet nominees before turning to the contentious showdown over Trump. The House of Representatives is due to formally deliver to the Senate on Monday the impeachment charge accusing Trump of inciting an insurrection, a move that ordinarily would have triggered the beginning of the trial within a day. Under the timeline, House impeachment managers will file their pre-trial brief and Trump’s defense team will file an answer to the impeachment charge on Feb. 2, and each side will respond to those filings on Feb. 8. The Senate acquitted him last year in the previous trial focused on Trump’s request that Ukraine investigate Biden and his son. Senate rules had called for an impeachment trial to begin at 1 p.m. on the day after the single article of impeachment was delivered to Senate, except for Sundays.
