In reaction to obvious lies in Barr’s testimony on the #MuellerReport, #MadamSpeaker came to an alarming conclusion for our country: “The attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States. That’s a crime!”

Underscoring the seriousness of Barr's flagrant decision to lie to Congress about his handling of the Special Counsel investigation & the #MuellerReport, #MadamSpeaker called him out: "Nobody is above the law. Not the President of the United States. Not the Attorney General." ⚖️
Watching America’s top law enforcement officer perjure himself before Congress, #MadamSpeaker saw the Faustian bargain that threatens our democracy:

Barr and Republicans in Washington have become handmaidens to right-wing *special interests* and abandoned their oath of office.
#MadamSpeaker has news for Mitch McConnell, the House bills she's passing are key priorities #ForThePeople and the basis of big gains for Democrats in 2018.

He says the bills are DOA but she means for them to become law with him – or without him in 2021. #TakeBackTheSenate💙💪
Anyone who has paid any attention is keenly aware of #MadamSpeaker’s reverence for our Constitution and the duty of oversight it gives to Congress over the President and the rest of the Executive Branch – on behalf of the people.

To get in the way of that is obstruction. Period.
Trump is playing a dangerous game with his administration's blanket resistance of House subpoenas – though *not* an unfamiliar one!

Since he’s not really into books all that much, maybe someone should interrupt his “executive time” with a screenshot of Nixon’s Wikipedia page.
Working in the majority for a bit more than #100DaysForThePeople, House Democrats have been diligent in advancing kitchen table priorities of health, safety, and security – in ALL its forms – for the people. That dutiful approach extends to House consideration of the #NewNAFTA.
While Barr lying to the Senate and being branded #ChickenBarr today for refusing to testify in the House may be fun to watch, #MadamSpeaker reminded us of the stakes of McConnell calling himself the *Grim Reaper* of policies that will help the American people. #TakeBackTheSenate
THANK GOODNESS #MadamSpeaker can multi-task!

With Trump's scandals and active schemes by his administration to kill policies that work #ForThePeople so he can please his right wing donors, some are skeptical that an infrastructure deal is possible.

She *will* get it done! 💪👠
