Source: The Hill

Federal prosecutors are dropping charges against more than 100 people arrested in the Inauguration Day protests.

The Office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia announced Thursday that it would proceed with charges against 59 defendants.

More than 200 people were arrested during the protests on charges ranging from conspiracy to engage in a riot to destruction of property.

A jury in a D.C. Superior Court last month acquitted six people on all charges, leaving 188 who were scheduled to face trial in small groups throughout this year.

Dems Aim To Score Another Big Special Election Upset Deep In Trump Territory

After a shocking win in a rural Wisconsin senate race Tuesday, Democrats are feeling increasingly bullish they can win another target deep in Trump territory, flip their first House seat since Trump’s 2016 victory and strike fear into the hearts of Republicans across the country.

Their target: a blue-collar southwestern Pennsylvania House seat recently vacated by disgraced former Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA) in territory national Democrats haven’t seriously contested this decade.

Strategists in both parties see a surprisingly close race developing in the district ahead of the March 13 special election. After some major investments, Republicans are pulling out the big guns on Thursday: A visit from President Trump himself, who will hold an official event on the district’s edges where he’s expected to boost the Republican candidate.

“Clearly there’s a lot of intensity and energy on the Democratic side and they’ve outperformed their recent numbers in other special elections. We’ve got to take this very, very seriously,” Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) told TPM. “I do think we are taking this seriously and I think we’re going to win, but we’re not going to be asleep at the switch.”



Richard Spencer Asks To Speak At Kent State On Anniversary Of Deadly Shooting

Source: Talking Points Memo

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The campus tour organizer for white nationalist Richard Spencer is making a bid for him to speak at Kent State University this spring on the anniversary of the shootings during a Vietnam war protest that killed four students.

A university spokesman confirmed Thursday that organizer Cameron Padgett has asked to rent space at Kent State’s Student Multicultural Center on May 4.

The university would only say that it’s reviewing the request, said Eric Mansfield, a Kent State spokesman.

Spencer, a leading figure in the white nationalist movement, has been barred by several schools from speaking on campus and has lawsuits pending against some.

Kaine, Warner say they will oppose House funding bill

Source: The Hill

Virginia's Democratic senators say they will oppose the House plan to fund the government, putting the bill on an increasingly uphill path in the Senate.

"We oppose the House Continuing Resolution, which punts budget discussions until mid-February," Sens. Mark Warner and Tim Kaine said in a joint statement Thursday.

"Republican leadership has to get serious about finding a budget deal and quit relying on short-term patches."

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has almost no room for error to pass the funding bill through his chamber, assuming it first passes the House

White House denies Trump's Pennsylvania trip is for Saccone campaign

Source: The Hill

The White House denied that President Trump's Thursday trip to Pennsylvania is for political purposes, hours after Trump tweeted that he's headed to the state "in order to" support the GOP candidate running in a special election there.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a Thursday morning statement pushing back at questions about the nature of the trip that were sparked by the president's tweet.

"The president is enthusiastic about today's trip to Pittsburgh, Penn., to discuss the incredible successes his tax plan is already achieving for the American people," she said.

"While the President has made clear his support for Republican candidates throughout the country, including in Pennsylvania, the purpose of today's visit is to promote the President's successful agenda especially on taxes," the statement said.

Well is he going to play fucking golf...................with a orange ball, so that he can see it in the snow, nope this asshole is going to make money off this trip.....................

"While taxpayers are on the hook to pay for official White House trips, political parties have to reimburse the White House for any campaign travel. That's easy when the president takes a trip solely to campaign—the party just reimburses the cost of the trip. But when the president mixes an official event with a political event, like a fundraiser, only the portion of the trip related to politics needs to be reimbursed.

That calculation is more difficult here, since there is no explicit campaign or political event. But while Trump's tweet appears to link the trip to political motivations, Sanders's statement suggests that the White House will not seek reimbursement for the trip."

I have a solution for this special election, lets meet Conor Lamb

Trump: 'Worst thing' about possible shutdown is effect on military

Source: The Hill

President Trump said Thursday the “worst thing” about a possible government shutdown would be its devastating effect on the U.S. military.

"If the country shuts down, which could very well be ... the worst thing is what happens to our military,” Trump told reporters outside the Pentagon, where he is meeting with military leaders.

The president reiterated his threat to blame Democrats for a shutdown, saying “it’s up to the Democrats” whether Congress is able to keep the government open. Republicans control the House and Senate.

Trump’s comments come just hours before the House is set to vote on a stopgap spending bill to avert a shutdown.

It’s unclear whether House Republican leaders have the votes to pass the plan, adding suspense ahead of the Friday midnight deadline.

Dingell to bring wife of deported Detroit man to Trump's first State of the Union

Source: The Hill

Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) announced on Thursday that she will bring the wife of Jorge Garcia, who was deported after 30 years in the U.S., to President Trump's State of the Union address at the end of the month.

"Jorge's wife Cindy has shown incredible resilience and courage in the face of these impossible circumstances. I am honored that she will join me at the State of the Union to be a voice for the hundreds of thousands of aspiring Americans who are part of the fabric of our communities, and who deserve a pathway to legal status in the country they call home," Dingell said in a statement.

"It is time for Congress and the President to find the political will to do what is right, not what is convenient, and fulfill this nation's promise to those who come here seeking a better life and those who call this nation home," she continued.
Garcia was deported to Mexico on Monday after spending 30 years in the U.S.
