courst cases spun off from the Mueller investigation.

If there already has been one started, I missed it.

Such a list might help those of us suffering from 'Trump administration wrong-doing reports confusion' syndrome.

23. People rightfully complain that the House isn't BROADCASTING what the heck it's doing.

Great thing about the Democratic controlled House:

—It's doing a heck of a lot to investigate Trump and co.

Lousy thing about the Democratic controlled House:

—It's got a list of great investigations but have done a poor job of packaging the truth it implies. Are they lacking spare bullet points? Are they media illiterate? No one told them that in today's information congested world the truth MUST be clarified, simplified and REPEATED? Do they lack media savvy? Is Trump winning with style? If so, please put AOC in charge of Dem communications.

37. Usually media literacy means NOT ignoring the significance of new media tech on public discourse.

It doesn't mean to stop reading books, etc., but to be more broadminded about the entire media landscape which includes:

books
TV
web
fashion
music
body language
Etc

Progress requires vigilance and this Trump administration requires a new approach to broadcasting its corruption. A little media literacy can go a long way.

it's what people are learning that I have issues with, and the people doing the teaching. I found the Mueller Report very informative about the use of media. Sounds like you want your representatives to take a public relations class, or maybe get a degree in advertising.

57. You have a point.



There are several House Dems who are stating things for the record, thru various media outlets at various times.
Not all of them are noticed due to how news moves.

fer instance, one of the most important House Dems made a comment about impeachment Sunday..
Name of Jim Clyburn.
Ring a bell?
Nope, me either.

But, he is the House Majority Whip, whose role it is to know the voting count of any subject that will be voted on in the near future, and to advise the Speaker of the House accordingly.

He appeared on CNN State of the Union on Sunday morning.

Host Jake Tapper asked:
“It sounds like you think that the President will be impeached, or at least proceedings will begin in the House at some point, but just not right now?”
Clyburn’s answer: “Yes, that’s exactly what I feel.”

He doesn't "feel". He knows what the planned timing will be and how long it will take to gather all the votes.

25. Congress doesn't have the power to issue indictments or sanctions

Those are executive branch powers.

Nor do they have authority to arrest, jail or fine except in cases of contempt of Congress, and even then, the power is very limited.

Oversight investigations are about more - much more - than throwing people in jail.

So claiming there are "zero" results from this flood of investigations and oversight because Congress hasn't arrested, jailed or fined anyone just isn't accurate.

Should be able to read, write, comprehend basic science, have basic aesthetic ability, and be media literate. Is congress educated? Yes, and therefore should be better able to take a list of their ongoing investigations and translate it into an effective form (that's what media literacy empowers you to do) so that Democrats can crush these corrupt Republicans in the 2020 elections.

41. If what you say is true, why is it a one-way street?

Shouldn't every citizen, should be able to at least gather, digest and understand information about their government without having it spoon-fed to them like they're children?

Doesn't the citizenry have any responsibility for their own lives and future?

The information isn't very difficult to access and comprehend - millions of people manage to do it, and they're not all highly educated. They're just paying attention and not expecting their elected representatives to show up in their living room with flashcards and a PowerPoint.

67. See articles below

I hear your concern. Here's a few links that might help you get some perspective. The ancient Greeks used to say "don't rest on your laurels" and it was a good insight into human nature... Democrats, like all organizations, need self reflection. Can't hurt to think about and strategize ways to amplify the good things Democrats are doing... learning about the new media tools/systems/attitudes is key.

Link: https://www.politico.com/story/2018/06/11/democratic-campaign-messaging-hollywood-637364
"...with several House members explicitly requesting help on speechwriting and overall messaging, participants said. In meetings with candidates and DNC officials, group members have urged the party to adopt a more aggressive communications strategy than the party mustered in a demoralizing 2016 presidential campaign.

“One of the first things we were at least talking about in the beginning meetings was how to improve upon the message as to what does the Democratic Party stand for, what does that represent,” said Andrew Marcus, who owns the television and film company Apiary Entertainment. “When the Republican Party or [President Donald] Trump is able to say ‘Make America great again’ and nobody that I know can tell you what the DNC or any of the leading candidates’ slogans [are], I think that’s a marketing problem.”

Alex Gregory, a writer and producer, said he has lobbied Democrats in their meetings to tie in vitro fertilization to abortion rights debates, while generally encouraging Democrats to adopt “more emotional content” in their messaging.

“It really is focused on … what do we stand for? In some ways, how did we lose?” Gregory said. “It is a moment of soul searching right now, in that we lost to an insane person … and that was more appealing than what we had to offer.”

36. Here is an example of why this will take time...

House Judiciary Committee Unveils Investigation into Threats Against the Rule of Law
Mar 4, 2019
Investigation will extend to allegations of corruption, obstruction, and abuses of power.
Washington, D.C. – Today, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) unveiled an investigation by the House Judiciary Committee into the alleged obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump, his associates, and members of his Administration. As a first step, the Committee has served document requests to 81 agencies, entities, and individuals believed to have information relevant to the investigation.

“Over the last several years, President Trump has evaded accountability for his near-daily attacks on our basic legal, ethical, and constitutional rules and norms,” said Chairman Jerrold Nadler. “Investigating these threats to the rule of law is an obligation of Congress and a core function of the House Judiciary Committee. We have seen the damage done to our democratic institutions in the two years that the Congress refused to conduct responsible oversight. Congress must provide a check on abuses of power. Equally, we must protect and respect the work of Special Counsel Mueller, but we cannot rely on others to do the investigative work for us. Our work is even more urgent after senior Justice Department officials have suggested that they may conceal the work of the Special Counsel’s investigation from the public.

“We have sent these document requests in order to begin building the public record. The Special Counsel’s office and the Southern District of New York are aware that we are taking these steps. We will act quickly to gather this information, assess the evidence, and follow the facts where they lead with full transparency with the American people. This is a critical time for our nation, and we have a responsibility to investigate these matters and hold hearings for the public to have all the facts. That is exactly what we intend to do.”

The Committee’s investigation will cover three main areas:

Obstruction of Justice, including the possibility of interference by the President and others in a number of criminal investigations and other official proceedings, as well as the alleged cover-up of violations of the law;
Public Corruption, including potential violations of the emoluments clauses of the U.S. Constitution, conspiracy to violate federal campaign and financial reporting laws, and other criminal misuses of official positions for personal gain; and
Abuses of Power, including attacks on the press, the judiciary, and law enforcement agencies; misuse of the pardon power and other presidential authorities; and attempts to misuse the power of the Office of the Presidency.

46. here are some links I found to schedules of hearings for House committees........

Can use this to track when (if it has been scheduled yet) hearings of interest will be held.

https://oversight.house.gov/legislation/hearings
https://judiciary.house.gov/legislation/hearings
Intelligence: https://docs.house.gov/Committee/Committees.aspx?Code=IG00 (Hint, you can find committee hearing schedules for ANY committee by using the pull down menu on this page.

Those are the big three looking at obstruction and collusion. Others can be found at the link I mentioned. This is the the place to go to see what the House is up to.

52. Maybe they've had their hands full with the 50 or so other investigations they've been doing

in the five months since the they took over.

53. Could be in the Ethics Committee and we don't know it since those investigations are confidential

until they're completed.

As I've said - there's a whole lot going on that we can't see.

50. Brilliant, thank you.

The "Dems are doing nothing" nonsense has gotten rather tiresome.

54. DU should pin this list, and all DUers should bookmark it. DU is being swarmed...

...and it serves no good purpose.

Thank You, chowder66.

62. Thank you!

I knew they had a lot going on but ... WOW! That's one heck of a list!

It's interesting how not one of the folks railing on and on and on about "impeachment now, no one's doing anything, Pelosi gave up," etc etc is present on this thread. Makes me think that core group of about 7 people don't really want answers, they just want to bitch and whine (I hope that's all it is and not something nefarious/intentionally divisive).
