1/ Trump tweeted that Russia helped "me to get elected" – his first acknowledgement that Russia had helped him elected in 2016. Trump later retracted the statement, telling reporters that, "No, Russia did not help me get elected. […] I got me elected." Trump has previously denied that Russia inferred in the election, rejecting the conclusions by American intelligence agencies and federal prosecutors that Russia worked to help him defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election campaign.

For the THIRD time the GOP in the House has derailed passing of the Disaster Relief Bill, even as waves of tornadoes, flooding, and severe weather sweep across the U.S.

John Rose joins Rep. Roy and Rep. Massie in stalling a $19B+ Disaster Relief Bill and Package because it helps Puerto Rico and won’t fund Trump’s wall.

Did the House GOP draw straws to see which of them got the chance to hurt more Americans by delaying this bill?

Rep John Rose is now the third Republican lawmaker to block a $19 billion disaster aid bill.
