Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA had an interview yesterday with Axios where he indicated the Democrats have gained enough ground in the House to attack President Trump and launch a number of new witch hunts. When the new Congress meets in January and the Democrats have just a small majority, they will be able to issue subpoenas and launch entire investigations. A new wave of investigations is expected early in the new year.
One of the main areas of concern by Rep. Adam Schiff is “instruments of the state power to punish the press”. The press, which constantly attacks President Trump and prints fake news, is constant issue for the White House. Recently the White House pulled the press credentials for a CNN reporter after he viciously attacked a White House intern. Schiff mentioned he wants investigations into how the White Hose has handled both CNN and The Washington Post.
Trump continues to have issues with both CNN and The Washington Post.
Trump has long derided the political coverage at the Post, which is fiercely and relentlessly criticial of the White House, as a lobbying tool for Bezos. But he has also feuded specifically with Amazon throughout the year, saying it is taking advantage of taxpayer-subsidized shipping rates.
The U.S. Postal Service has lost money for the past 11 years.
