We in Congress will do everything we can to push back against that eventuality. We must affirm our commitment to protecting the integrity of the Mueller investigation and making sure the President does not interfere with its conclusions.

I am however, worried that Sessions’ firing today could possibly signal an effort by President Trump to undermine the ongoing Mueller investigation into the foreign interference that took place during the 2016 election.

Trump hasn't delivered on the promises he made to the American people. 1. People w/ pre-existing conditions are being denied access to healthcare. 2. Because of their $2 trillion in tax cuts the GOP now wants to cut Social Security & Medicare. 3. He has no infrastructure plan.

There is no question that the President is playing politics. The men women and children coming to our border is not an invasion. It is people seeking asylum. It is the President's right-wing, fear mongering message to cover-over the fact that he hasn't delivered on his promises.

Speaking to Newsweek on condition of anonymity, U.S. military sources said senior leaders within the Pentagon had derided the deployment not only as a significant waste of taxpayer dollars but as running counter to military readiness.

Last week Secretary Zinke tried to fire his inspector general. This week we find out the IG he tried to fire has referred Zinke to the Department of Justice for potentially trying to profit from his office. We need to now!

Smith op-ed: The Pentagon has declared war on transparency. Remedying this imbalance by bringing back oversight and accountability should be one of Congress’s major defense priorities.

INF & New START? "As our allies and partners have discussed, one of President Putin’s goals in undermining the INF Treaty is to goad us into such an action. That would benefit Russia and weaken deterrence by sowing discord among our allies and partners."

We should not take the bait and fall into Putin’s trap. We should recognize that nuclear stability has been an essential component of national security. Exiting INF&New START would divide us from our allies, derail that stability & lead us into an uncontrolled nuclear competition
