And now hell be tainting one of our prime venues.
Last year, the event raised Florida Republicans $500,000 and is their preeminent fundraising event annually.
Spectrum News was the first to report the event would be held at Disneys Grand Floridian Resort.
1 GOP member HAD voted Yea but has changed that vote apparently.
82-48 Yea v Nay so far
EDIT: 2 Dem defectors on both votes.
That they are totally obtuse re: how a grand jury (which is what this is in essence) works...
That they made many of these rules 4 years ago...
That the leaked like sieves during Benghazi...
That they unethically modified reports during the Benghazi investigations...
But the biggest is hearing the absolute desperation in their whining right now!
I. Am. LOVING IT!!!
Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan didnt directly rebuke the two of them, but under questioning about various aspects of the Ukraine scandal, he implied that what Trump and his personal lawyer have been up to is at the very least problematic.
At a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Ranking Member Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) asked Sullivan broadly whether it was okay to ask foreign governments to investigate domestic political opponents.
Soliciting investigations into a domestic political opponent I dont think that would be in accord with our values, Sullivan said. He added later: "The concept of investigating a political rival that would be inconsistent with our values.
Sullivan sought to draw a line between his sentiment and what transpired in Ukraine, suggesting it might be okay if such an investigation was merely a part of a broader anti-corruption push. But there is no evidence it was. Evidence has shown repeatedly that Trump and his team pushed specifically for two investigations that carry obvious political benefits and not others. There is no evidence of them pushing for other investigations.
Republicans must lie to survive: They have no other choice
From Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump, the path to Republican political success is rooted in profound deception
Normally, a political party wins elections by offering policies that benefit the voters. These policies attract the voters who then cast their votes for the political party.
But for the Republican Party, this is not an option. A candidate could not possibly campaign on the policies favored by the 1%. Just imagine the stump speech. Vote for me and I will slash your health care! In fact, Ill do even better I'll fight like mad to completely eliminate your health care!
The Republican Party is left with only one option. It cannot possibly be honest about its true intentions and actual policies. The working class would never vote for them. Instead, the only option is to lie.
The Republican Party must lie. It has no choice. It must conceal its true inner core. This is a matter of life or death for the party. The survival of the Republican Party itself depends upon lying. It cannot exist without creating a false impression about its true purpose.
This. So much this.
The IRS Tried to Hide Emails That Show Tax Industry Influence Over Free File Program
After ProPublica sued the IRS, the agency released emails that show it has allowed the tax preparation industry to write the rules.
This year, as part of our coverage of the IRS and TurboTax maker Intuit, we filed a request for correspondence between the IRS and the Free File Alliance, an industry group. The request sought records surrounding a public-private partnership called Free File.
Under that program, which has long been championed by Intuit, the IRS agrees not to create its own tax filing system that would pose a threat to the industrys profits. In exchange, Intuit and several other tax prep companies agree to offer free tax filing to most Americans. But the program has been declining for years, with less than 3% of eligible Americans using it this year.
The email correspondence sheds light on a pivotal moment for the future of Free File in the fall of 2018: An expert body called the IRS Advisory Council (IRSAC) had spent months investigating the program. It was preparing to publish a blistering report concluding that the IRS deficient oversight and performance standards for the Free File program put vulnerable taxpayers at risk.
lol he mad

Trump did not sit with the Lerner family, the principal owners of the Nationals. A representative for the Lerner family put in a request to MLB to not be put in position to turn down a request from the White House to sit with Trump, according to WUSA. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/playoffs/2019/10/27/donald-trump-world-series-nationals-park/2481826001/
