The group will continue to work from afar. "There is still more work to be done on the final bill, and nothing is agreed to until everything is agreed to. The issues have been at the core of demands from activists and progressives who want police to be held accountable. The potential legislation would also address choke and carotid holds, no-knock warrants, national standards for policing, misconduct record keeping and resources for police mental health. The House passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act in March.

He said bipartisan talks would continue to try to find a deal with Republicans. The two most conservative Democrats haven't said how they would vote, but they notably kept the door open to Schumer's two-track approach. Top Senate Republicans split over whether Democrats' pursuit of a party-line bill would damage prospects of a bipartisan deal. "That sends a signal that he really doesn't want to do a bipartisan bill. Senate Minority Whip John Thune, R-S.D., said that if Republicans agree to a bipartisan deal, they could make it tougher for Democrats to secure the votes for a separate party-line bill.

WASHINGTON — Progressive Democrats working on a bipartisan infrastructure deal hardened their position on the legislation after tense talks Monday. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., a member of the Senate Democrats' leadership team, came out against a bipartisan agreement Monday night after meeting with a bipartisan group of 10 senators. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Jeff Merkley of Oregon have insisted that any deal must include action on climate change. That means the bipartisan group will need to secure more than 10 Republicans to get its proposal across the finish line. Republicans said it was part of the plan; Democrats said it wasn't.

WASHINGTON — Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar will be the target of dueling resolutions expected to be filed this week admonishing them for remarks that critics said were antisemitic or inappropriate. Rep. Brad Schneider, D-Ill., is expected to unveil a resolution Wednesday that would censure Greene, of Georgia, for remarks last month comparing House mask rules to the Holocaust. Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., is leading an effort to craft resolution to censure Omar. In 2019, the House voted to condemn antisemitism in response to statements made by Omar, but the resolution did not name her. And Tlaib said Republicans had mischaracterized remarks she made about Israel and the Holocaust.

WASHINGTON — The Department of Justice's internal watchdog will investigate the Trump-era seizure of communication records from some Democratic lawmakers and journalists, the agency announced Friday. For instance, the committee specifically asked what metadata was included in the subpoenas and the Justice Department has not provided answers, the official said. At the time the records were sought, the House Intelligence Committee was investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. The newspaper reported that the records were sought as part of an investigation into leaks of classified information. Schumer and Durbin said in a statement that Congress and the Justice Department’s inspector general must investigate these actions by the Trump administration.

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan group of 10 senators said Thursday they had reached a tentative infrastructure deal, but skepticism from Republicans and impatience from Democrats left its prospects uncertain as lawmakers departed for the weekend. The other members of the group are Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine; Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va.; Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La. Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., who faces re-election next year, said he favors a bipartisan deal as "the first option," without taking a simple-majority approach off the table. If we can do a bipartisan bill, that's great. "Hope we'll get some Republican votes."

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'.

A draft text a police reform bill in the name of George Floyd, who was murdered under the knee of a convicted former police officer, is being circulated to lawmakers, a congressional source told NBC News on Wednesday — a positive sign that talks are moving forward. Sen.Dick Durbin, D-Ill., also said he also appeared to confirm the circulation of a draft of the bill when asked Wednesday afternoon. This comes a day after a bipartisan group of lawmakers working on the bill appeared to have made significant progress on the sweeping legislation, three sources told NBC News on Tuesday. Negotiators have been cautioning throughout the process that nothing is settled until every issue is settled. Scott was adamant that qualified immunity not be eliminated but has been open to reforms.

A bipartisan group of negotiators is making headway on sweeping police reform legislation, three sources said, as they narrow in on a compromise over one of the most challenging issues plaguing the talks: qualified immunity. Opportunity for talks to fall apart is still very real — negotiators have been warning throughout the process that nothing is settled until every issue is settled. Still, the significant progress on the critical issue greatly increases the possibility that a bipartisan agreement can be reached. The negotiators hope to have draft legislation within the next two weeks, two sources said, which would fit their self-imposed timeline. Tim Scott, R-S.C., and Cory Booker, D-N.J., have said the timeline for a deal is "June or bust."

Weeks of negotiations between the White House and Republicans failed to bring the two parties close to a deal. A White House official said they asked Republicans whether they could raise their offer by a significant amount, and they couldn’t. The White House is reviewing another bipartisan proposal from the House Problem Solvers Caucus, according to a source familiar with discussions. But questions persist about the viability of a bipartisan infrastructure plan. The bill is just one part of $4 trillion in infrastructure spending Democrats want but is expected to be the base of the House's infrastructure bill.

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden offered Senate Republicans an alternative to the tax hikes he initially proposed to pay for a sweeping infrastructure plan, part of his attempt find a bipartisan agreement, according to two sources briefed on the proposal. Biden's first proposal called for raising the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent as the primary way to pay for the infrastructure bill. On Wednesday, Biden presented Capito with a menu of tax increases that don't reverse anything in the 2017 tax cut bill. Biden floated a 15 percent minimum corporate tax and tougher enforcement on the highest earners, said a source familiar with the meeting. Biden also told Capito that he wanted to see a Republican proposal that includes $1 trillion in new money.

She shot down a suggestion raised by some House Democrats that President Joe Biden could form a presidential commission, calling it not a workable idea, one source on the call said. Both chambers would have to vote to approve, which looks unlikely after the Senate Republicans' filibuster last week. The chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., and ranking member, Rep. John Katko, R-N.Y., negotiated the original Jan. 6 commission framework, which Katko voted in favor of. Katko voted to impeach TrumpOn the call, Pelosi promised to continue talking to members to come to an agreement on next steps. Last week, Senate Republicans blocked House-passed legislation that would establish a bipartisan independent commission to investigate Jan. 6.

The mother of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who died following the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, met with Republican senators on Thursday to urge them to support a commission to investigate the attack. "You know, usually I'm staying in the background and I just couldn't, I couldn't stay quiet anymore," she told reporters following a meeting with Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah. The Senate could vote on the legislation as soon as Thursday but it may be delayed by consideration of a bill focused on China. In a Wednesday statement to all GOP senators requesting a sit-down meeting, the late officer's mother said her son "died because of the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol Building on January 6." In announcing his opposition to the legislation for the 9/11-style commission last week, McConnell called it a "slanted and unbalanced proposal."

The Senate is scheduled to hold a series of votes Thursday on the China bill. McConnell has been lukewarm on the China bill. ‘My favorite philosopher, Mick Jagger’Democrats see the China bill as the test of bipartisan cooperation. Proponents of abolishing the filibuster say the commission vote proves the Senate isn’t functioning, a message likely to be amplified if the China bill flounders. “If the Jan. 6 commission can’t make it through the Senate it’s further evidence of how the filibuster under Mitch McConnell is strangling our democracy,” she said.

A collapse in talks is likely to result in Democrats opting for a parliamentary maneuver to pass a bill on their own. The six Republicans involved in negotiations met Tuesday to discuss their counteroffer to the White House, saying they expect to release it Thursday morning. The White House has said it wants to see progress by Memorial Day. Democrats haven't set a specific deadline but the push to go it alone is likely to grow quickly after that. "I keep saying to myself, to use an old expression, there's going to be a fish or cut bait day.

Ben Crump, the family's attorney, confirmed the visit to NBC News on Monday. The family will meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Tuesday morning in Washington before their scheduled White House meeting with Biden. Then the family will meet with several senators from both parties, but Crump declined to identify the lawmakers. Biden called for Congress to pass the bill by the anniversary of Floyd's death this past April in his first joint address to Congress. He said negotiators had “good, good progress over the weekend” and that “we can see the end of the tunnel.” Scott declined to say if he will meet with the Floyd family.

Instead, Biden will host members of Floyd's family at the White House. As the date approaches, the White House is downplaying the political goals and focusing on the personal connection. In relation to the Floyd bill, however, the White House appears to be more in observer mode. Psaki said last week that the White House remains "deeply engaged" with the negotiators and stays abreast of their progress. The debate in the White House about how to mark the anniversary of Floyd's death is twofold, an official familiar with the discussions said.

WASHINGTON — The battle at the top of the Republican Party entered a new front Wednesday as House Minority Whip Steve Scalise publicly backed Rep. Elise Stefanik to replace Rep. Liz Cheney as chair of the House Republican Conference. In order for Cheney to be removed, a motion would have to be raised before the conference, which will then have to vote. Joshua Roberts / Reuters fileStefanik’s prominence within the GOP conference increased during the first impeachment of former President Donald Trump when she vigorously defended him. This comes after the feud between McCarthy and Cheney appeared to reach a breaking point Monday. Cheney was the highest-ranking Republican to vote to impeach Trump during his second Senate trial in February.

WASHINGTON — When Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., arrived in the Senate in 1993, the first piece of legislation she voted on was the Family and Medical Leave Act. "I'm just so excited about the opportunity for the first time, really, in my memory that we are really talking about what do we do for families," Murray said Thursday. The price tag is high for Biden's plan. The American Families Plan is sketched out to cost about $1.8 trillion, which is expected to be paid for by raising taxes on families making more than $400,000 a year and taxing capital gains as income. He said it would give politicians "even more power to micromanage American families and build a country liberals want instead of the future Americans want."

The growing power struggle could have repercussions in the 2022 elections, when the party hopes to seize control of Democrats’ narrow majorities in the House and the Senate. Party officials recognize that Trump retains loyalty among the Republican base and that his endorsements carry weight. Speaking to a room full of Republican donors recently, Trump attacked McConnell for not objecting to the Electoral College count on Jan. 6. Senate Republican campaign officials say Greitens could have a difficult time winning a general election in a state that should easily be won by a Republican. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., who is also in charge of the Senate Republican campaign arm and has 2024 presidential ambitions himself, is trying to keep Trump in the fold.

WASHINGTON — The day after Derek Chauvin was found guilty of the murder of George Floyd, Republican Sen. Tim Scott expressed renewed optimism about the prospects of Congress passing a police reform bill. But like most things in Congress, partisan division has stalled prior efforts, and Republicans were chafed that Senate Democrats blocked their last attempt to consider a reform bill. “I don't know that anyone will see the George Floyd verdict as a transformative moment in our justice system. A police reform bill authored by Scott in 2020 was blocked by Democrats. “We will not rest until the Senate passes strong legislation to end the systemic bias in law enforcement.”

DAVENPORT, Iowa — House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy traveled to Iowa on Wednesday, trying to turn a seat his party won by just six votes into a charge of hypocrisy against Democrats. McCarthy, R-Calif., is traveling to the Hawkeye State to appear at events with Miller-Meeks, an attempt to draw attention to the House Administration Committee's on going review of the Iowa election. “This is the people's House, not Pelosi’s House,” McCarthy said during an interview with FOX News on Wednesday. But many Democrats say the presidential election and the Iowa congressional race aren’t comparable. The Iowa election was close, not fraudulent, they argue, and all they are seeking is a full recount, including the legally cast votes that were left out of the original tally.
