Trump has spent 255 days golfing at Trump properties, costing taxpayers $122 million and enriching himself along the way. Meanwhile, the House passed 248 pieces of legislation, including 6 to protect healthcare and 14 to help veterans. Our record speaks for itself—as does his.

IRS lawyers wrote a memo showing why they’re required to give Trump’s tax returns to Congress. Secretary Mnuchin refused. He said he never read the memo. Then, he claimed the memo didn’t say what it plainly said. What’s next? Truth isn’t truth again?

Trump: "I don't do cover-ups." Dictionary: "cover-up [ kuhv-er-uhp ]: any action, stratagem, or other means of concealing or preventing investigation or exposure." Also see: The Mueller Report, Volume II.

The "joke" is that Carson was woefully unprepared for a hearing, unable to answer ’s question about why HUD is foreclosing on people at alarming rates — thus illustrating the tragic human cost of appointees who lack vital experience. And that’s no laughing matter.

Trump sued to conceal his financial records from Congress. Yesterday, a judge ruled in favor of Congress, and said the idea that we can't investigate the president for serious allegations of criminality is "not fathomable." He's right. We have a constitution, not a king.

Misrepresenting the Special Counsel investigation, attempting to exonerate a president who may have committed multiple felonies, and lying to Congress does not serve the presidency — or our country. It serves only Donald J. Trump and others bent on covering up his misdeeds.

At every step, the Trump Administration has obstructed Congress. We have tried voluntary compliance, subpoenas, contempt, and may use inherent contempt, even impeachment. That’s not a step to take lightly, but this lawless administration may leave us with no other choice.

Who better than Lauren Underwood, a nurse who ran for office after her opponent voted against the ACA, to introduce legislation that bans junk plans and requires coverage for pre-existing conditions when Americans need it most? We will never stop fighting to .

Conrad Black was convicted of fraud and obstruction of justice. Last year, he published a fawning Trump biography. Trump just pardoned him. A convicted fraudster who adores Trump — I wonder what Trump sees in him?

Why do we need oversight? The unjustified travel expenses The unethical Chick-fil-A gambit The Ritz Carlton lotion runs The $43,000 soundproof booth The $1,500 fountain pens The taxpayer-funded security detail The bargain condo rental And that’s just one Trump official!

Alabama just passed a law criminalizing all abortions, even in cases of rape and incest. Abortion is a deeply personal decision. It should be made by women. Not the government. We will defend Roe and the right to choose.

Trump planned to make mass arrests of immigrant families across the U.S. Even Kirstjen Nielsen thought it *might* be too extreme. He still plans on doing it. This isn’t “zero tolerance.” It’s zero humanity.

Robert Mueller must testify before Congress. And we will make sure that he does. The American people have every right to hear directly from the man who conducted the investigation. They certainly cannot rely on Barr, who has misrepresented Mueller’s work from the beginning.

Giuliani didn’t cancel his trip to Ukraine because of “spin.” He told us all why he was going: To get help from a foreign power and encourage them to investigate the family of a political rival. But Rudy delivered the message loud and clear: Ukraine, if you’re listening...

The Trump Administration's stonewalling is unprecedented. So too must be Congress' response. One option we may consider: Heavy personal fines imposed on recalcitrant officials under Congress’ inherent contempt power. Every day until they comply. That might get their attention.

Enough silence. Enough arrogance. Enough defiance. It’s time for the Justice Department to comply with the law.

This week’s tragic school shooting in Colorado was the 12th this year. 10 year-olds should not have to do training drills to avoid enemy fire. 20 years after Columbine, we’ve failed our kids. The House passed 2 gun safety bills, more to come. Tell your Senators to get moving.

DOJ provided a million pages of investigative files to GOP-run congressional committees. Including information about ongoing probes, witness interviews and more — the same types of info Barr now claims he can’t provide a Democratic House. Add hypocrisy to the list of offenses.
