On February 6, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on gun violence in America.
Chairman Nadler: "For far too long, Republicans in Congress have offered moments of silence instead of action in the wake of gun tragedies. That era is over."
FYI: The Trump admin has quietly resumed separating immigrant families at the border.
At one agency, the children were put into temporary foster care and shelters with little or no indication that they arrived at the border with their parents: propub.li/2QcsPvY
Reminder: The Trump administration is systematically locking up thousands of children at unheard of rates - now almost 15,000 are in U.S. custody.
The government classifies these children as "unaccompanied"
Thousands more kids may have been separated from their parents at the border under the Trump administration than was previously thought, according to an internal government report.
Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker is considering blocking one of the last avenues for victims of domestic violence, including children, to be granted asylum in the U.S., according to The Daily Beast.
14 Days remain until the temporary bill providing fiscal appropriations through February 15, 2019 expires.
If Congress & Trump do not agree on a fiscal year spending bill, government agencies will again be shut down.
This is heartbreaking.

"By giving Congress time to definitively establish its unwillingness to fund the border wall, Trump is both taking away any legitimate justification for emergency action and proving his intent to subvert the constitutional balance of powers." theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/…
None of Trump's intel chiefs who testified about global threats mentioned a security crisis at the border.
Trump's National Drug Control Strategy doesn't explicitly call for physical wall construction to curb illicit drug trafficking at the border. washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost…
Trump & White House usually keep his golf outings under wraps, but not today, as he tweeted this photo of his round with golfing legends Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods
Reminder: Trump said if elected, he would never see his golf courses ... would be working all the time #TrumpLies
Deutsche Bank, which has long been Trump's primary lender, has received an "inquiry" from House committees' Maxine Waters and Adam Schiff.
For years, Dems have sought docs about whether any of the loans it made to Trump were connected to Russia. washingtonpost.com/business/2019/…
Trump reportedly needed a loan in 2016, but even Deutsche Bank turned him down.
Suddenly the money he stood to make from Trump Tower Moscow and the Rosneft deal takes on added significance.
WSJ: Deutsche Bank AG, seeking to slash its exposure to Russia in late 2016, scrambled to shed a $600 million loan it had outstanding to VTB Group, a large Russian state-owned bank, according to docs and people familiar with the funding. wsj.com/articles/deuts…
Deutsche Bank sold a chunk of the loan to Russian financial institution Alfa Bank.
The effort to shed the VTB loan—which hasn't been reported—came as Deutsche Bank, mindful of the Russia probe, sought to reduce exposure to Russian entities.
Trump's U.S. is perceived to be more corrupt than at any time since 2011.
Transparency International's global Corruption Perceptions Index 2018 claims the U.S. is now seen as the 22nd most honest country in the world—a fall of 6 places since 2017. thedailybeast.com/trumps-us-slip…
Joyce Vance: Mueller leads a team of highly qualified public servants who worked at Justice for many years, without regard to which party holds the presidency at any particular time.
Their demonstrated loyalty is to the law, not a partisan cause.
Russia says it will build weapons previously banned under a nuclear disarmament treaty and will no longer initiate talks with the U.S. on any matters related to nuclear arms control.
Almost seems like this was coordinated with yesterday's news.
The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 US election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of 2020 Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard.
Why is this news not shocking?
White House announces new appointments: “Roger L. Stone will serve as Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of White House Information Technology.”

Ryan Zinke told the US Park Police that a Post reporter caused a kerfuffle outside his Capitol Hill home.
Here's what actually happened, as he and his buddies drank beer and watched Monday Night Football.
"[Trump] has complained that his skin and hair appear too yellow or orange on the screen, according to one person familiar with his views.
As a result, events in the White House are now more dimly lit than in previous administrations."
Trump taps Ronny Jackson to receive promotion and be his top medical adviser, despite investigation.
This on the eve of his annual medical exam.
Reminder: January 16, 2018, Dr. Ronny Jackson said Trump was 6-3, 239 pounds and received a perfect score on a cognitive test.
I'm guessing his 2019 exam will show he's lost weight...which pictures from today prove otherwise.
The Colorado Senate this week passed a bill that would award the state's electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the nationwide popular vote, according to The Hill.
The measure now goes to the state House for consideration.
Trump wants courts to determine if it's legal for 'SNL' to 'belittle' him.
He's such a snowflake. By the way, tune in tonight.
Every president since Nixon has voluntarily given their tax returns. Trump hasn’t.
There’s a reason for that, he has a lot to hide.
In case you missed yesterday's thread:
