NEWS: Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team has expressed reticence to him testifying publicly in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to sources familiar with the matter. His team has expressed that he does not want to appear political. w/@LauraAJarrett @jeremyherb

One option is to have him testify behind closed doors, but sources caution numerous options are being considered in the negotiations between the committee and the special counsel’s team. Nadler has called for public testimony

Intel Committee member @RepSpeier told me she doesn't think MUELLER wants to testify:

"He doesn’t want to be trashed by the Republicans,” Speier said. “Does anyone want their reputation dragged through the mud falsely? You’ve seen @Jim_Jordan in action."

Alabama's governor said Monday the new abortion ban she recently signed into law reflects the high value residents place on the "sanctity of life," adding she doesn't expect any fallout from the controversial measure on tourism or business recruitment.

A poll conducted last year but never before released showed that just 31% of voters in Alabama support banning abortion in all cases, while 65% of voters oppose banning abortion in cases of rape and incest.

Schooley Retweeted Newsweek

I'd love to say this is a delicious turn, but I've also been around long enough to see people "on our side" bend over backwards to prove they aren't biased, so who knows anymore? At this point we pray for just a hint of nation saving vindictiveness.

Reminder: Don McGahn’s account is in the Mueller report. It’s online. All Americans can read it. Democrats are trying to haul him to Congress as a part of their goal to re-do the entire two year investigation—on their political terms.

This display is not serious.

Jennifer Jacobs Retweeted Donald J. Trump

NEWS: Trump admin is preparing to announce another round of aid to farmers hurt by China trade war as soon as Thursday, sources tell @MikeDorning and me. Could change, but the discussion is payments to farmers:

-soybeans: $2/bushel

-wheat: 63 cents/bushel

-corn: 4 cents/bushel

Trump has repeatedly said a trade aid for farmers is coming to offset pain from China tariffs.

Current plan calls for some direct purchase of food by the govt, but payments to farmers would be main element of the assistance, sources say.

President Trump: "Our country is full. We don't want people coming up here, our country is full. We want Mexico to stop. We want all of them to stop. Our country is packed to the gills, we don't want them coming up."

Al Cardenas Retweeted The Hill

Every single Labor statistic & academic studies have indicated that America has severe labor shortages in the Ag, hospitality, health care, tech sectors. The long term harm to our nation’s economy from such demagoguery is very, very significant

I am very disappointed that Mexico is doing virtually nothing to stop illegal immigrants from coming to our Southern Border where everyone knows that because of the Democrats, our Immigration Laws are totally flawed & broken Mexico’s attitude is that people from other countries, including Mexico, should have the right to flow into the U.S. & that U.S. taxpayers should be responsible for the tremendous costs associated w/this illegal migration. Mexico is wrong and I will soon be giving a response!

Trump keeps alternating between:

1) Boasting that he has gotten Mexico to apprehend migrants for the first time (Mexico has done apprehensions for many years, though at varying levels)

2) Complaining that Mexico is doing nothing to apprehend migrants

Housing Sec. Ben Carson apparently does not know a basic housing term.

“Do you know what an REO is?” Rep. Porter (D-CA) asked

“Oreo?” a confused Carson replied

“Not an Oreo. An R-E-O.”

“Real estate?” the former GOP presidential candidate guessed

What's he got to lose.  Trump has called him an Angry Democrat numerous times.  

Plus he has hurt his cause by punting to Congress, only to have Barr set the (false) narrative, and so you now hear from Trump and the GOP is the false claim of "No Collusion No Obstruction".  He needs to clear things up and clear his name.
