Five antitrust bills were introduced last week in the House of Representatives. Two of the bills introduced last week address the issue of giant companies, such as Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) and Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google, creating a platform for other businesses and then competing against those same businesses. A top antitrust Republican, Representative Ken Buck, said he had been skeptical of the need for additional antitrust enforcement but had changed his mind.

Federal prosecutors also subpoenaed Google for the emails of Times’ reporters, but Google resisted and, under Biden, the Justice Department eventually dropped the quest. Garland’s institutional loyalty cannot justify whitewashing the action of his predecessors in the Trump-era Justice Department or the careerists who carried out their directives. The Justice Department possesses the documents filed by its prosecutors with the court, and Garland can simply unilaterally release them. Garland’s institutional loyalty cannot justify whitewashing the action of his predecessors in the Trump-era Justice Department or the careerists who carried out their directives. While protecting the institutional role of the Justice Department has value, its value does not extend to sheltering the actions of Trump-era prosecutors from scrutiny.

The House Judiciary Committee plans to probe the seizure of Democrats' data by the DoJ. Some Democrats have discussed requiring testimony from Trump-era AGs Bill Barr and Jeff Sessions. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler announced that an investigation into the seizure of phone data from Democratic lawmakers by the Justice Department during the Trump administration. One of the options before the panel is to compel testimony under oath from Trump-era Attorneys General Jeff Sessions and Bill Barr, both of whom have denied knowing about the data seizure. But top Democrats have expressed skepticism about their denials, and the Nadler's justice committee probe could request their testimony under oath.

WASHINGTON — A dozen House Democrats publicly criticized their colleague Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., late Wednesday, accusing her of giving "cover" to terrorist and suggesting her remarks about Hamas and the Taliban reflect a "deep-seated prejudice." “Equating the United States and Israel to Hamas and the Taliban is as offensive as it is misguided,” the group, led by Rep. Brad Schneider, of Illinois, said in a statement, urging Omar to "clarify" her remarks. Omar responded to her critics by calling their statement "offensive" and defending her initial remarks. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban,” she wrote on Twitter, echoing her remarks on the video. In a follow-up tweet, Omar defend her initial remarks: “Citing an open case against Israel, US, Hamas & Taliban in the [The International Criminal Court] isn’t comparison or from 'deeply seated prejudice'.

Former White House counsel Don McGahn refused to go along with then-President Donald Trump's push to remove special counsel Robert Mueller out of fear that the situation could "spiral out of control," he told a House panel. "If I conveyed the tone that I heard on the phone from the president to Rod, Rod could do who knows what? McGahn confirmed other information from Mueller's report, as well, including how upset Trump was when he found out that Mueller had been named special counsel. House Judiciary Democrats subpoenaed McGahn to testify as part of their impeachment inquiry, but the Trump White House and Justice Department fought to block his testimony. "Don McGahn testified he observed no collusion with Russia, no obstruction of justice and no criminal activity during his time as White House counsel," Jordan said.

Legislation to federally decriminalize marijuana was reintroduced in Congress last week. Amazon said their public policy team will be actively supporting The Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2021, an effort to federally legalize marijuana. The company will also no longer include marijuana in drug tests for positions not regulated by the Department of Transportation. "In the past, like many employers, we've disqualified people from working at Amazon if they tested positive for marijuana use," Clark said. It would also formally allow states to chart their own course in establishing commercial marijuana sales.

"Our federal laws must keep up with this pace." The bill failed to advance last year in the Senate, where a companion bill also died. It also would create an Office of Cannabis Justice to oversee social equity components, prevent the federal government from penalizing cannabis users who depend on social services and open the door to more research opportunities. “This bill will give a lot of individuals a fresh start,” said Stuart Titus, CEO of cannabis company Medical Marijuana Inc. For nearly a decade, the federal government has relied on an uneasy truce with states that chose to carve their own cannabis laws.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene once said invoking Nazi history is "insulting." Greene attacked AOC at the time for comparing migrant detention facilities to concentration camps. "She should be shamed by everyone that she's actually using those terms and making that comparison," Greene said. "She should never, ever, make that comparison," Greene continued. "Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi's forced Jewish people to wear a gold star," Greene tweeted on Tuesday.

Don McGahn, White House counsel under former President Donald Trump, is expected to testify before a House committee next week, a source familiar with the matter confirmed to NBC News. Earlier this month, the House Judiciary Committee said that it expected McGahn to respond to questions about the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller and allegations of obstruction of justice. The New York Times first reported Monday that McGahn was expected to appear for the closed-door session next week. The House committee, headed by Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., announced on May 12 that an agreement for McGahn's testimony had been reached. Nadler, chair of the House Judiciary Committee, issued a subpoena to McGahn in April 2019 as part of its investigation into possible obstruction of justice and other issues.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A man was arrested and several others were being sought in connection with an attack on a Jewish man in New York’s Times Square that drew the attention of several politicians and is being investigated as a hate crime, police said on Friday. He faces charges of second-degree hate crime assault, a second-degree gang assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. A video of the incident showed a person striking a man on the ground with a crutch and fleeing as other attackers also did. The New York Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force said it was investigating the assault. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement that he was dispatching the State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to assist.

In recent days, there has been a lot of talk about the Democratic Party’s purportedly changing position on Israel. We know that the only solution is one where both Jewish and Palestinian people have the right to self-determination and security. We support the humanity of both parties in the conflict as well as small-d democratic values. We start from the belief that both Jewish and Palestinian people each have the right to self-determination and the right to live with peace and security. We reject the hatred and extremism on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that have precipitated so much violence.

Reps. Val Demings and Jim Jordan engaged in a heated shouting match over policing. Demings accused Republicans of backing law enforcement when it's "politically convenient" and added, "What, did I strike a nerve?" She then accused Republicans of supporting police officers "when it's politically convenient to do so," adding, "Law enforcement officers risk their lives every day. "I have the floor, Mr. Jordan," Demings said as she spoke over the Ohio congressman. "Law enforcement officers deserve better than to be utilized as pawns," Demings went on, even as Nadler continued banging the gavel.

A shouting match erupted at Tuesday's House Judiciary Committee hearing on a hate crimes bill between Reps. Val Demings, D-Fla., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio. The bill it was seeking to amend, however, does not have a provision to take funds away from law enforcement. Called the Covid-19 Hate Crimes Act, the legislation seeks to give incentives for hate crime reporting, boost funding to state-run hate crime hotlines and increase penalties for individuals convicted under current hate crime statutes. "I served as a law enforcement officer for 27 years," Demings, a former police officer, said. That's when Jordan cut into her speech, prompting Demings to raise her voice and slam her hand on the table.

Jerry Nadler’s Double Taxation Lesson
  + stars: | 2021-04-20 | by ( The Editorial Board | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
Conservatives have been making arguments about double taxation for years. We’re glad to hear Mr. Nadler thinks the death tax and the corporate-income tax are unjust and should be repealed. So does New York state. When you buy a pack of gum, by Mr. Nadler’s logic, the local sales tax should be deducted on the receipt before the state sales tax is calculated. More pernicious double taxation is when the same level of government takes multiple bites, which is what business profits face.

The Supreme Court has stood at nine justices since 1869, the entirety of modern American political history, even though the precise number isn't fixed by the Constitution. But Congress' micromanaging the size, and through it the ideological composition, of the Supreme Court would increase the influence of politics over the third branch of government, not decrease it. Roberts is already widely regarded as a strategic voter who sometimes sides with the liberal bloc to protect the Supreme Court as an institution. It was Franklin Delano Roosevelt who tried to enlarge the Supreme Court — in his case so he could implement New Deal policies that conservative jurists believed to be unconstitutional. Previous escalations of the Supreme Court wars have taken Democrats from a place where Mitch McConnell voted to confirm Ginsburg to one where he wouldn't grant Garland a hearing.

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that 63% of Americans back term limits for Supreme Court justices. President Biden has assembled a commission to study possible reforms within the federal judiciary. With congressional Democrats and Republicans seemingly in a perpetual state of battles over the judiciary, a recent poll shows the American public in favor of curbing lifetime appointments for Supreme Court justices, while displaying less enthusiasm toward other judicial reforms. A Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll conducted in mid-April showed that 63% of respondents supported term limits for Supreme Court justices, while only 22% of respondents supported lifetime appointments. Supreme Court justices currently have lifetime appointments.

Democrats on Friday slammed President Joe Biden for keeping in place this year the cap on refugees allowed to enter the United States set by the Trump administration. By failing to sign an Emergency Presidential Determination to lift Trump’s historically low refugee cap, President Biden has broken his promise to restore our humanity,” Jayapal, the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said. It is shameful that @POTUS is reneging on a key promise to welcome refugees, moments after @RepSchakowsky @RepJayapal, myself and others called on him to increase the refugee cap. But he never signed the presidential determination that would actually raise the cap, effectively keeping the cap at Trump-era levels. As a political matter, President Biden will alienate a lot of his supporters by failing to turn the page on President Trump’s racism, xenophobia and scapegoating of immigrants and refugees,” the group said.

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats will introduce legislation Thursday to expand the Supreme Court from nine to 13 justices, joining progressive activists pushing to transform the court. The Democratic bill is led by Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, the chair of the House Judiciary Committee. "This bill marks a new era where Democrats finally stop conceding the Supreme Court to Republicans," said Brian Fallon, a former Senate Democratic leadership aide and a co-founder of Demand Justice, who described the court as "broken and in need of reform." Last week, Biden announced the formation of a commission of liberals and conservatives to study the structure of the Supreme Court, including the number of justices and the length of their service. The size of the Supreme Court, which has fluctuated since it was established in 1789, has remained at nine since 1869.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi threw cold water on a Democratic bill to expand the Supreme Court. The bill aims to add four justices to the Court, bringing the total number to 13. Pelosi said she supports the White House commission to study court reforms, but doesn't plan to bring the bill to the House floor for a vote. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said she does not support a newly-introduced bill to expand the Supreme Court and has "no plans to bring it to the floor" for a vote, serving a major blow to court reform efforts in the current Congress. Asked by a reporter at her weekly news conference on Capitol Hill if she supports the legislation, Pelosi replied "no," citing Congress' need to prioritize President Joe Biden's infrastructure bill.
