House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finalized plans to create a select committee to investigate January 6. "This morning, with great solemnity and sadness, I am announcing the House will be establishing a select committee on the January 6th insurrection," Pelosi said in her weekly news conference. After multiple outlets reported her plans to create a select committee, Pelosi said she was not ready to make an announcement, but she made the news official the next day on Thursday. By contrast, a select committee made up of members of Congress is convened temporarily to investigate or study a particular matter. The select committee will include both a Democratic chair appointed by Pelosi and a Republican ranking member appointed by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

House to form select committee on Capitol invasion, Pelosi says

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday that her chamber will establish a select committee to investigate the deadly invasion of the U.S. Capitol by a mob of former President Donald Trump's supporters. The select committee will investigate and report on the facts of the event and its causes, and will make recommendations on how to prevent similar attacks in the future, Pelosi said. Pelosi noted that she hoped a broader commission could still be formed to look into the invasion, saying she sees the House committee as a "complementary" panel, rather than as a replacement. "I'm hopeful that that could still happen at some point," Pelosi said of a Jan. 6 commission bill passing Congress. "That is what the select committee will be about, and that is about seeking and finding the truth," she said.

Kevin McCarthy criticized the IRS for wasting taxpayer dollars on a poster promoting the child tax credit. In a now-deleted Facebook post on Wednesday, McCarthy posted a photo of a poster that college student Tobin Stone created promoting the child tax credit, which is a monthly credit given to families with children. McCarthy attributed the poster to the IRS, though, and criticized the agency for wasting taxpayer dollars on a "government handout." McCarthy has not yet publicly commented on mistakenly attributing the poster to the IRS, but some Democrats were quick to notice the minority leader's error. With regard to the child tax credit, Insider's Joseph Zeballos-Roig reported earlier this month that some centrist senators might stand in the way of a permanent expansion of the credit, which 41 Democratic senators had previously called for.

WASHINGTON, June 24 (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday there will be a new House committee to investigate the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, after Senate Republicans in May blocked the creation of an independent commission to probe the assault. Pelosi said it would have been preferable to have an outside commission, and that she had not totally given up on that idea. 1/3 U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) holds her weekly news conference with Capitol Hill reporters in Washington, D.C., U.S. May 20, 2021. "The Capitol of the United States has always been a glorious beacon of democracy for the American people and the world," Pelosi said.

The same week in Miami, a group of young Republicans carrying signs that read “This Is What an Environmentalist Looks Like,” held what was billed as the first rally for “conservative” climate action. On Capitol Hill, Kevin McCarthy, the House Republican leader, plans to start a Republican task force on climate change, his staff confirmed. Mr. McCarthy declined a request for an interview. It also promoted tree planting and expansion of nuclear energy, a carbon-free power source that many Republicans prefer over wind or solar energy. Republicans have not offered any specific targets for cutting emissions.

Live Live Updates: Harris to Visit Southern Border Amid Republican Criticism Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to El Paso on Friday with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas. President Biden is set to deliver remarks on gun violence as homicides rise in some cities, raising concerns about efforts to overhaul policing. The visit will come just days before former President Donald J. Trump is set to visit the border with a group of House Republicans and Gov. While she said no one likes the conservatorship, she does not expect any push by the Biden administration to end it anytime soon. Mr. Biden dispatched aides to Capitol Hill on Tuesday for discussions that his press secretary, Jen Psaki, said yielded progress.

Trump has 'zero desire' to be House Speaker, spokesperson says

Donald Trump has "zero desire" to be House Speaker, his spokesperson Jason Miller told Punchbowl News on Tuesday, after the former president himself called the prospect "very interesting." Technically, the House Speaker doesn't need to be an elected member of the lower chamber, but, since the end of his presidency, Trump has been fielding questions about whether he would run for a House seat to then serve as Speaker. "You know, I've talked to President Trump many times, he tells me he wants to be speaker, and I think he should be president," McCarthy said. His spokesman later clarified that Trump meant that he wanted McCarthy to be Speaker. After leaving the White House, Trump moved to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.

Liz Cheney spent $58,000 on security from January to March, according to The New York Times. Cheney has become a vocal Trump critic following her vote to impeach him for his role for Jan. 6. She was ousted from House Republican leadership last month after months of internal party turmoil. When Cheney has made appearances in Wyoming, the events have reportedly not been widely publicized in advance for security reasons, according to The Times. Despite the threats, Cheney, who was first elected to the House in 2016, has refused to back down from her criticism of Trump.

The Republican National Committee paid just over $175,000 to former President Donald Trump's private club to host part of its spring donor retreat. Federal Election Commission filings show that the six-figure sum was paid in May to Trump's Mar-a-Lago, a month after the April donor event at the private club in Palm Beach, Florida. Forbes reported the gubernatorial campaign of former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders paid Mar-a-Lago over $10,000 for an event that featured Trump himself. FEC filings show Alabama Senate candidate Lynda Blanchard paid Mar-a-Lago over $13,000 in March for an event at the club. CRP data also shows that during the 2020 election cycle, the RNC paid Trump properties over $1 million to host political events.

WASHINGTON — Former President Donald Trump promised to repeal Obamacare, the health insurance program that helped fuel the backlash tea party movement and ultimately his own candidacy. If Trump couldn't get Congress to do away with the law — and he couldn't, even with Republicans in control of both chambers — he would choose Supreme Court justices who would declare Obamacare unconstitutional. In the first hours after the ruling, Trump greeted the news with the deafening silence of defeat. It's unenforceable because Trump and Congress eliminated the law's penalty for people who decline to buy health insurance. In the end, Trump was wrong about the law, the politics of trying to kill the Affordable Care Act — and the assumption that he could control the votes of his Supreme Court picks.

House GOP Leader Criticizes Bipartisan Bills Targeting Big Tech
  + stars: | 2021-06-16 | by ( Ryan Tracy | Julie Bykowicz | ) sentiment -0.99   time to read: +1 min
WASHINGTON—House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) criticized a bipartisan package of bills targeting large technology companies through changes in antitrust laws, a rebuke that will hurt the legislation’s chances of gaining broad support. Mr. McCarthy, though a spokesman, said that while action to curb the companies’ power is needed, the plan “only gives Democrats in the federal government more power to tip the scales.”The bills would expand the power of agencies that enforce antitrust laws, including the Federal Trade Commission, giving them broad new authority to block mergers, police large online platforms’ conduct, and even force them to divest certain businesses. President Biden, a Democrat, on Wednesday named a leading critic of big technology firms, Lina Khan, to chair the FTC, giving her authority to pursue antitrust initiatives. Mr. McCarthy suggested he would be offering an alternative proposal to rein in large technology companies that would address Republican concerns that they censor conservative speech.

Greene came under fire for comparing the House mask mandate to the horrors suffered by Jews in Nazi Germany. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Monday evening publicly apologized for her previous comparisons of COVID-19 mask requirements and vaccination efforts to the horrors suffered by Jews in Nazi Germany. Greene's apology comes as House Democrats move to censure her after she likened mask mandates and vaccine rules to the persecution of Jews during the Holocaust. The "gold star" reference, which historians more commonly refer to as a yellow star, was an identifier that Nazi Germany forced Jews to wear. Several House Democrats swiftly condemned Greene's language, followed by House Republican leadership.

Kevin McCarthy is perpetuating the GOP's smear campaign against Ilhan Omar. McCarthy is urging Pelosi to remove Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee. McCarthy urged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to strip Omar from the committee based on what he described as "anti-Semitic" and "anti-American" language from the Minnesota lawmaker. "The islamophobic tropes in this statement are offensive," Omar tweeted in response to a statement from 12 fellow House Democrats that condemned her recent remarks. In a separate statement, Omar said she was "in no way equating terrorist organizations with democratic countries with well-established judicial systems."

REUTERS/Jonathan Ernst/File PhotoWASHINGTON, June 15 (Reuters) - Two Senate Democrats said on Tuesday they would not vote for an infrastructure bill that omits key measures aimed at combatting climate change, putting pressure on the White House to abandon attempts to secure a bipartisan package. Republicans have said measures addressing things like climate change do not count as "infrastructure," leaving negotiations in the divided Senate at an impasse. Progressive Democrats have urged the White House over the last few days not to abandon climate provisions after White House climate adviser Gina McCarthy told Politico that measures like "a clean electricity standard may not end (up) in the final version" of the infrastructure deal. Andrew Bates, a White House spokesperson, told Reuters the administration has not stopped pushing for climate priorities in the negotiations.

BLANCO, Texas—In May 2018, House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) met with Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) at the NBA playoffs in Houston. Mr. McCarthy was curious about Chip Roy, a Republican who had just won a GOP primary in Texas and had previously worked as Mr. Cruz’s chief of staff. Mr. McCarthy outlined four qualities that he prized in a lawmaker who would work well with GOP leaders, Mr. Cruz recalled. “I said, ‘Kevin, well I’m sorry to tell you, you’re probably 0 for 4 on those,’” Mr. Cruz said. Headed into the 2022 midterms, Mr. Roy will be a case study in whether a conservative Republican usually aligned with Mr. Trump can survive politically after angering the former president—even a modest amount.

Fully vaccinated lawmakers in the House of Representatives are no longer required to wear a mask or remain physically distanced while in the chamber or committee hearings, Brian Monahan, Congress's attending physician, announced Friday. In a memo, Monahan said mask wearing would be "discretionary" for vaccinated lawmakers and staff but required for those who have not yet been vaccinated. “Capitol Hill complex is at 85 percent vaccination rate which is extremely high.”The policy change comes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy sparred over the requirements in recent months. Republicans argued that the mask mandate should be lifted, but Pelosi resisted changing the rules and argued everyone lawmaker needed to be vaccinated. The fine for breaking the mask rule was $500 for a first offense and $2,500 for a second offense.
