DOJ to overturn work requirement for Medicaid in KY and AR

At issue are rules the Drumpf administration approved in the states obligating some people to work, volunteer, or take classes for 80 hours a month to be allowed to remain on Medicaid.

The rules don't apply to caregivers, parents, and people undergoing treatment for serious illness, but plaintiffs say they are illegal and do not serve the purpose of Medicaid, which is jointly funded by states and the federal government.

The Drumpf administration's argument is that Medicaid could go beyond providing healthcare coverage and instead, through work requirements, help beneficiaries improve their lives by earning more money and securing private health insurance coverage. It notes that people who work are healthier and improving health is another goal of Medicaid.

Trump nominee for Deputy AG Jeffrey Rosen uncertain about Brown v. Board ruling

The remark came during Rosen’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Connecticut Democrat, pressed Rosen on Brown v. Board of Education, the landmark ruling that found school segregation to be unconstitutional; and Roe v. Wade, the ruling that affirmed that abortion access is a constitutional right.
Could it be that Rosen probably approves of segregation in schools? I mean, for any rational being, it's without any doubt logical to overcome segregation, since there is no supportable ground to separate people by the colour of their skin.
“Senator, I don’t think that it would be a productive exercise for me to go through the most–thousands of Supreme Court opinions and say which ones are right and which ones are wrong,” he said.
Why don't you just say «Yes», man? This is no question to contemplate, it's a matter of course! For God's sake, racists... show more


 

Rep. Bruce Westerman (R - AR) intends to bar possibility of charging minors

Westerman introduced today a legislative package that seeks to spare juveniles from the excesses of the tough-on-crime policies to which both major parties have adhered for decades.

The other two pieces of legislation that Westerman introduced on Thursday afternoon lack the obvious advantages of Sara’s Act, which is a narrow bill designed to help sex-trafficked minors, an exceedingly sympathetic group. The rest of the package is broader and likely to be more controversial on both sides of the aisle. One bill would ensure that Americans can’t be sentenced for life without parole for crimes committed before their 18th birthdays. Another would require that parole boards consider the “diminished culpability” of minors relative to adults when determining an offender’s release date.

“These bills are aimed at making sure there is justice and fairness in the system, and it will affect people of all races. It’s not specif

«All I want is justice and evidence that President Trump is unfit for office», demands former FBI director James Comey


I care only that the work be done, well and completely. If it is, justice will have prevailed and core American values will have been protected at a time when so much of our national leadership has abandoned its commitment to truth and the rule of law.

I do have one hope that I should confess. I hope that Mr. Drumpf is not impeached and removed from office before the end of his term. I don’t mean that Congress shouldn’t move ahead with the process of impeachment governed by our Constitution, if Congress thinks the provable facts are there. I just hope it doesn’t. Because if Mr. Drumpf were removed from office by Congress, a significant portion of this country would see this as a coup, and it would drive those people farther from the common center of American life, more deeply fracturing our country.

Senate comparably disinterested about news on FBI investigation on Trump


McCabe writes in his book that the briefing for the "Gang of Eight" leaders in Congress came days after Drumpf fired FBI Director James Comey, making McCabe acting director of the bureau at the time.

"That's the important part here, Savannah. No one objected. Not on legal grounds, not on constitutional grounds, and not based on the facts," McCabe said.

Just think of it: The Senate thought that ignorance was a viable means of defending the president who possibly committed a crime to reach up for the White House. Or did they not care because they already expected this to happen and only counted the days until he came up and tell them about it?

McCabe was fearful that he would be fired before those probes were on "solid ground," he said. He wrote in his new book "The Threat," in an excerpt adapted for The Atlantic, that after the meeting "it felt like crossing a finish line."

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R - S.C.) to testify McCabe and Rosenstein


"We're going to find out what happened here and the only way I know to find out is to call the people in under oath and find out, through questioning, who's telling the truth because the underlying accusation is beyond stunning," Graham said on "Face the Nation."

"There is no organization beyond scrutiny," he said. "There is no organization that can't withstand scrutiny. And the FBI will come out stronger."

The Justice Department issued a statement in response reiterating Rosenstein's denial of the claim calling McCabe's account "inaccurate and factually incorrect."

Rod Rosenstein is departing, giving unusual interviews to reporters


For those not privy to the ways of the media, it means Rosenstein is telling his story to reporters in a way that can’t be attributed to him. It’s a classic tactic some politicians and bureaucrats use to shape a legacy — without leaving their public fingerprints on the story line.

Rosenstein managed to escape testifying on these issues by using an “I’m too busy” argument and running out the clock on the Republicans who then controlled the House but gave up power on Jan. 3, after Democrats won the majority in the November election.

“Rod Rosenstein plotted against the president and obstructed congressional efforts to get the truth. He should be testifying before Congress, not giving rounds of press interviews to friendly reporters. As he leaves office, Mr. Rosenstein must cooperate fully with IG (Michael) Horowitz’s investigation into Justice Department media leaks. Democrats in Congress should insist on Mr. Rosenstein... show more

Donnie assails man who revealed the DOJ contemplated his impeachment


And, seemingly in response, the president tweeted: "Disgraced FBI Acting Director Andrew McCabe pretends to be a 'poor little Angel' when in fact he was a big part of the Crooked Hillary Scandal & the Russia Hoax - a puppet for Leakin’ James Comey. I.G. report on McCabe was devastating. Part of 'insurance policy' in case I won.

Does Donnie actually have a hard time pretending to not actually speak with a backwater redneck accent? I could really imagine him with an accent that sounded like half of his jaw is deranged significantly, so that he is mumbling all the time.

“I wrote this book because the president’s attacks on me symbolize his destructive effect on the country as a whole,” Mr McCabe said in a statement issued through his publisher, St. Martin’s. “He is undermining America’s safety and security, and eroding public confidence in its institutions. His attacks on the most crucial institutions of government, and on the professi... show more

Matthew Whitaker to testify publicly on Friday


“If you appear before the Committee tomorrow morning and if you are prepared to respond to questions from our Members, then I assure you that there will be no need for the Committee to issue a subpoena on or before February 8,” Nadler wrote.

It took me a moment why he was told to testify. I first thought that it would be about the nomination on a new AG for the DOJ, which I thought Mr. Barr was planned and supposed to be. It seems like this is about the decisions the DOJ made under his operative leadership.

Whitaker is likely to face a barrage of questions from Democrats on his oversight of the investigation as well as his communications with the White House.

I hope there'll be more news on this today (I'm from Germany, remember; while your day might have only begun now, we're at high noon). I would like to hear what he has got to say while testifying.
