Karen Handel will face the winner of Georgia’s July 24 Sixth Congressional District Democratic Primary Runoff: Lucy McBath or Kevin Abel. Jonathan Grant @Brambleman on Twitter So, this happened. Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) took the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives and played audio on a device in his pocket of crying immigrant children at the Southern border. (Source: Pro Publica) This is the audio in which a guard says, “We have an orchestra here.” Rep. Karen Handel (R-GA), holding the gavel at that time, didn’t like that much. She tried to stop him, but she was clueless on how to run the place, so she leaned on…

Trump needs to know: Is AG Jeff Sessions part of Deep State?

Today, on Twitter, Donald Trump strongly (as in all caps) suggests his hand-picked Attorney General, Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions, is a disgrace to his presidency. At this point, a legal question: Can an attorney general be flipped? Or is Trump trying to prove he’s not obstructing justice by being so bad at it?
